The CD 凥omecoming" presents 13 original songs from Steve Clayton in the classic blues, boogie, & juke-joint sound plus a cover version of the Led Zeppelin hit 刉hole Lotta Love" with an exiting 刵ew" arrangement.
This is blues and boogie piano at its best, and with the help of Germany's top blues rhythm section and Schneider's unmistakable guitar and harmonica solos, Clayton, with his superb blues voice, really tells his story.
Recorded the 刼ld way", you could easily think you were sitting in on an early Ray Charles or Charles Brown session.
The Recording Session:
In July 2014, the Munich guitarist Peter Schneider and his allies Uli Lehmann and Oskar Poehnl, dropped in to Steve "big man" Clayton's house in southern Germany.
They were armed with guitars, a double bass, drums, amplifiers, blues harps and Peter's mobile recording studio consisting of expensive microphones, stands of every size and a mixer.
Hundreds of meters of cable were laid, but Steve still managed to find a way through to the music room where he could play on the same piano on which he had composed the songs.
The guitar amp was placed in the bathroom, Uli set up his bass and amp in the hall just outside the music room where Oskar had set up his drums, opposite the piano, separated by a mattress.
Steve counted in, and Clayton's house turned into a Barrelhouse, Juke joint, Church or an after hours blues club depending on what song was being played.
