"Blues Album of the Year"
The European Press glorifies
her with headlines like The Queen Of The Night,
Golden Throat, The Blues-Pipes, The Voice from
the Lord, The Roarer, Dynamite Stick,
and many more.
The Lady they are talking about is
internationally acclaimed Singer, Songwriter,
Producer, and Actress, and 2009 Blues Music
Award Nominee JEAN SHY.
Blow Top Blues, the latest of her 13 Albums,
Jean Shy presents yet another part of her
"World of Blues," which is contrary, but
definitely not inferior in Style from her
previous Jean Shy & The Shy Guys release "The
Blues Got Soul," with which Jean received her
Blues Music Award Nomination.
Blow Top Blues is a brilliant Album
compilation ranging from the Style of Dinah
Washington, and Tony Bennett, to Ray Charles and
Aretha Franklin. Seeing that Jean is also a
Songwriter, the CD includes a few of her own
compositions. The Tracks were recorded with the
three main Bands that Jean has been performing
with in Europe for many years. The "Friends" on
this CD are: Shy's own Band The Shy Guys
(Germany), The Climax Band Cologne
(Germany), and the JBBO (Jazz Band Ball
Three of the Tracks were produced by
Michael McGregor for one of Jean Shy's Solo
Last but not least, a powerful re-mastering of
all Tracks was done by Mastering great Bob "Big
Bottom" Lanzner, from Technovoice Productions,
Studio City, CA.
makes up a superb, and unique CD that shows off
that the "Blues" burns in Jean's veins, no
matter what style of the Blues she sings.
A critique once described Jean's performance as
Shy has the
conciseness of a Tina Turner, the vivid
Northern-Soul feeling of a Van Morrison, the
expressiveness of an Etta James and she
convinces above all with one thing "honesty."
