Jack de Keyzer on New Harmonica Shah CD: If All You Have is a Hammer

Talented bluesman Harmonica Shah may be from Detroit but he knows exactly where to find great blues players.

Hamilton's own Jack deKeyzer plays guitar on his latest CD, If All You Have is a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail.

Joining Shah and DeKeyzer are Canadians Alec Fraser (Jeff Healey, Jerome Godboo) on Bass and Al Cross (Big Sugar, Jerome Godboo) on drums. Juno award winner, Julian Fauth also lends occasional piano to the disc.

Most of the same group teamed up for Shah's previous CD, Listen At Me Good as well.

If All You Have . . . is good old fashioned blues in the style of Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters with a bit of soul. DeKeyzer's guitar prowess is evident on all tracks. There's booty shaking boogie and some amazing slower numbers too.

The CD is available online, including as an e-music download.
