Release: Paul Filipowicz - Unfiltered 25 Juni 2018


Image and video hosting by TinyPic Release: Paul Filipowicz - Unfiltered 25 Juni 2018Here it comes! Paul Filipowicz’s 10th recording “Unfiltered” is the smokin’summer soundtrack of 2018. From the first gut-bucket note of Magic Sam’s “AllMy Whole Life Baby” to the low-down pool hall and juke-box sounds he heard inthe early ‘60s, Chicago Blues Hall of Fame guitarist Paul Filipowicz breaks the filter off his smoking blues and gives it to you straight. “I got my blues educationthe old-fashioned way,” Paul says. “The only way my dad could get out of thehouse on a Saturday night was to take us boys along, and man did we see somejoints!”
On this recording Paul pays homage to the masters. Three Magic Sam tracks
draw on Paul’s history of playing an all-Magic Sam set in the ‘70s, and Lowell
Fulson and Howlin’ Wolf tracks are also represented with a deftness of hand that
is true to their creators. The album includes five Paul Filipowicz originals,
including the rollicking “Riding High” and the four-on-the-floor ass shakers “Brand
New Hat” and “My Woman.” In the moody harp instrumental “Canal Street,”
inspired by long ago late-night memories, harp-master Benny Rickun takes it all the way downtown, before the boys take
you back uptown with the rowdy guitar shuffle and title track “Unfiltered.”
The Paul Filipowicz Blues Band, with an all-star lineup featuring alumni of the Chain Smokin’ Altar Boys, the Tommy
Castro Band, The Groove Hogs, Brian Lee, and Dave Mason, has been bringing it strong every night for over 40 years.
