The UK has produced the best blues guitarist from any country in decades. – LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS

The Matt Schofield Trio’s fourth CD and undoubtedly the best so far, packed full of their trademark blues-meets-funk-and-jazz. There are also some great songs and catchy melodies.

In the intervening eighteen months since his first studio album, Schofield’s guitar tone and distinctive phrasing have become highly influential, culminating in Guitar & Bass magazine (3/07) listing Schofield in their Top Ten British Bluesmen of All Time, an accolade that places him alongside the likes of Eric Clapton and Peter Green (although some 30+ years their junior!).

Both Schofield’s earlier releases, The Trio Live and Siftin’ Thru Ashes gained a maximum four star rating in the Penguin Book of Blues Recordings – one of only two UK artists to achieve this distinction (and one of relatively few out of the 1,000+ artists worldwide included in the book).
