Kai Strauss: In My Prime (LP)

(Continental Blue Heaven) 8 tracks
Kai Strauss has been a household name among European blues lovers since the early nineties. Now, at the age of 50, the guitarist and singer is releasing his sixth album on the Dutch label CRS - aptly titled 'In My Prime'. Strauss is a mature musician with his own signature, grown out of respect for his idols. He knows them, the pioneers: Guitar Slim, Luther Tucker, all Three Kings, Otis Rush and Magic Sam. You can't pin him down to any of them, and yet they remain alive through him. Today, Kai himself is a respected figure among guitar fans worldwide.

On 'In My Prime', a first-class band under him ignites a fire of funky 70s blues influences, and the fact that he has a horn section around US saxophonist Sax Gordon at the start once again shows his international importance. His own songs attest to his ability to creatively tread traditional paths.

"Kai Strauss"

Kai Strauss belongs to a small circle of European blues musicians, to whom American colleagues and critics also attest an authentic style. Musically grown up in Germany's blues stronghold Osnabrück, Strauss toured for over 15 years alongside the Texan Memo Gonzalez and played a firm place in the hearts of the blues community with his intensity. "Even as a teenager I was infected by the music of Buddy Guy, B.B. King or Jimmie Vaughan," says the guitarist and singer, who, according to the trade magazine Bluesnews, is now regarded as one of the big names in the European scene.

Three German Blues Awards, 2016, 2015 and 2014, TV appearances, magazine covers and concerts in over 20 countries are remarkable milestones in Strauss' career. Good blues is nourished by personal experience and passion. Decisive qualities of Kai Strauss, who elicits from his instrument the stories that life writes - whether live or recorded with international guests on the new CD "Getting Personal", which was awarded the "Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik".

With his third longplayer Strauss consistently continues on the path he took on the previous album "I Go By Feel" and strengthens his profile as a modern and at the same time puristic bluesman. There's plenty of guitar - from dirty, funky "The Blues Is Handmade" to the expressive slow blues "Blues For Anne", but above all it's the eleven original compositions by Strauss and his top-class comrades-in-arms that prove an artistic development and give the album title "Getting Personal" its justification.
