      Isaiah B Brunt Trio Voodoo Tour NZ

      "Isaiah has been compared to that of Delbert McClinton. His guitar work has been compared to Lonnie Mack. His compositions—especially “Lost Jacket Blues,” “Travel Back In Time” and “Party Late All Night”—are instant classics." - The Aquarian New Jersey Less amorphous than most present-day jazz has become, contemporary blues has remained, more or less integrated and within recognizable genre. Not that classifications provide anything more than an inferior roadmap to the new listener, they do come in handy. Australian Guitarist, composer, and producer Isaiah B. Brunt has managed to stake out a corner of the blues market not with a slash-and-burn testosterone-boogie approach, but, rather, a soft, carefully nuanced approach that is as well-defined as it is conceived. Brunt is best known for his work behind the console serving as producer and engineer for the Julio Iglesias orchestra, the Goo Goo Dolls and American Idol's Randy Jackson. Wow. The music Brunt makes on Just the Way It Goes, recorded in New Orleans, is stylistically light-years from those acts. In a most understated way, Brunt displays a superior knack for composing and playing perfect off-shoot and variants of the durable "12-bar blues" tradition that is enjoying it current centenary plus some. Isaiah will be bringing his Australian Trio for a extensive NZ Tour. Tickets: Phone - 0800 500 705
