A Friend In the Blues

An authentic, affectionate and unhurried sounding Canadian blues album featuring an all-star cast. Marks and co-producer Alec Fraser take us on a journey over 12 tracks down Highway 61, picking up tombstone legends  in Chicago, Memphis, New Orleans and Baton Rouge.  Listen closely and you can hear spirituals, jazz, rhythm and blues, electric blues, rock and roll-and Danny Marks’ winsome vocals.

Adding to the charm of this ace album is a special sauce Marks and Fraser used in the recording proccess to give it an 'old-time' analogue sound.

The longstanding and much respected Toronto bluesman can be heard Saturday evenings on Jazz FM (online here) and soon  to be hosting his own show on the premium HD channel  HiFi TV.
