PodCast  Rec. July 2007, Patrick Hazell performs and talks about his music, the Siberian Highway, sings the Iowa Cornsong on www.Cornsong.com 
 
 
 
"(Hazell) sounds like Huck Finn would sound if Huck were a musician instead of a river rat."   Musically, (he) reminds me of the best of C.C.R.  (Creedence Clearwater Revival)   --PETE MARTIN, Des Moines, Iowa ---a fan since the late 1970s.
"Hazell's tunes simultaneously evoke the boogie piano masters such as Henry Gray and the harp magnitude of Little Walter-- meaty licks and great singing."---------BLUES REVUE,

"This is not what you would ordinarily think of when you imagine a one-man band. (Hazell) is the real deal, with well-composed songs and a relentless boogie beat on most of these tracks, along with some of the best harmonica you’ll hear on disc."  --Graham Clarke, BluesBytes Internet Blues Magazine--October 2003 review of 2003 CD release Rollin' In The Moonlight- full review:here)


"(HAZELL'S) rhythmic drive is superlative while his sound and style is highly reminiscent of Memphis one-man bands like Doctor Ross or Joe Hill Louis. His raspy harp and vocals.....are fortified with strong material, an unrelenting beat and sensational ambience as he ekes out a piece of blues turf that hasn't been occupied in a very long time....In the current white boy blues community where seemingly every street corner has five people on it with shades, pleated pants and heat-up Stratocasters in hand, Patrick Hazell stands out as something very unique and cool.-----------CUB KODA, GOLDMINE
"....(Hazell) sings the Blues really dirty - so dirty that you get the strangest feelings. If you ever tried to play the harmonica, that seemingly harmless child's instrument, and now listen to Pat's Blues harp you will get the impression of having arrived on another planet. Blues fans who have listened to all sorts of players, from Sammy Lewis, Little Walter Jacobs and James Cotton (The Sun Studio era) to Junior Wells, Sugar Blue and Kim Wilson, will recognize from this CD, that Pat Hazell belongs to the big ones. His voice is as black as a night in the deep south of the United States of America."---------- DAGMAR FULLE, FRANKFURT, GERMANY, From Review of Germany-released CD: GANGSTER'S OF LOVE

BLUES FOR DUMMIES

PIANO BLUES

While the guitar wasn't introduced to the blues until the 1920s, the PIANO had been part of the blues music mix since the turn of the century, decades before the blues was recorded.

PIANO BLUES encompasses myriad blues offshoots, including turn-of-the-century ragtime style (similar to the piano music heard in the movie The Sting), boogie-woogie (an up-tempo style played mostly with the left hand and having a pronounced eight-beats-to-the-bar figure), New Orleans second line (a hip-shaking blues piano style combining heavily syncopated bass notes laced with Caribbean rhythms), barrelhouse blues (a hard-pounding form of boogie-woogie), West Coast jazz stylings (what we call "supper club" blues), and Chicago blues……

Both the lead (or solo) and rhythm parts can be simultaneously played on a piano, which make it an almost self-contained combo. The piano can, however, also fit perfectly into most any blues band configuration. Current practitioners of piano blues include Ron, Levy, Dave Alexander, Pinetop Perkins, and PATRICK HAZELL
