Understanding & Passion For The Blues
Singer-guitarist Scott Ainslie is a leading scholar of the Delta blues style that Robert Johnson helped pioneer. He’s also a collector of great songs and has deep respect for American roots music. All this makes for a potent performance on Thunder’s Mouth…
Ainslie’s understanding of, and passion for, the blues is evident from every string he plucks and every note that passes his lips.
[While] Robert Johnson has always been a hip reference when guitarists are asked about influences, often, it’s nothing more than lip-service. With Thunder’s Mouth, Ainslie has continued a career that one can imagine Johnson being proud of.
