Al Basile: Last Hand (CD)

(sweetspot) 12 tracks, digisleeve

Last Hand is a blues and roots style song cycle that tells the story of a May-December romance. It is Al Basile's 17th solo CD, and he sings his new songs with a keyboard trio provided by the Duke Robillard Band, which has been featured on his CDs for ten years.

Al wrote, arranged and produced this project. It will include a radio promotion campaign with 200 stations by Todd Glazer Promotions, a four-month advertising campaign by Mark Pucci Media and print ads in Living Blues, Blues Music Magazine and Blues Blast. Al says: "For the first time in forty years of recording and twenty years of making my own records, I decided to put the producer's hat on my hat rack. This is all on me - it was time. "

"Al Basile"

     Al Basile grew up in a park in Haverhill, Massachusetts. He graduated from Phillips       Academy  in 1966, and in 1970 he was the first to receive a Master’s Degree from the Brown University Writing Program. He began his musical career as a cornet player with Roomful of Blues in 1973, and has worked with the Duke Robillard Band as a songwriter and recording member since 1990, appearing on twelve CDs and a DVD; his songs have been used in films and television and covered by such artists as Ruth Brown and Johnny Rawls, and bands New Jump Blues and the Knickerbocker All Stars.

 He has fifteen solo blues and roots CDs out under his own name, the majority having reached the top 15 on the Living Blues airplay charts in their year of release. They have all been produced by Robillard and feature his guitar playing and many former Roomful members: guest artists have included the Blind Boys of Alabama, jazz great Scott Hamilton, and the late Sista Monica Parker. He has been nominated seven times since 2010 for a Blues Music Award as best horn player; his 2016 CD Mid-Century Modern was nominated as Best Contemporary Blues Album. He is also a prize-winning poet, with two published books, 2011's A Lit House and 2017's Tonesmith. He taught full time at the Providence Country Day School in East Providence, RI from 1980-2005 and since then has concentrated on his  writing, performing, and recording.
