Dodgin Bullets is Steve Fister's fifth album and another stellar showcase for his emotionally charged style of blues-infected rock. Not only a gifted, high energy player, Fisters abitites as an accomplished songwriter and a soulful vocalist are reflected on "Dodgin Bullets".
The album features drummers Frankie Banali (Quiet Riot), Tommy Aldridge (Whitesnake) and Greg Bissonette (Joe Satriani). Bassists featured are Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets) and Tony Franklin (The Firm).
Recent reviews / quotes.
"Fister is a brilliant musician, very well crafted with a tremendous energy. You can compare him in energy and enthusiasm to a youthful Eric Clapton".
(Jaap van Eik ALOHA Magazine Holland)
"I love this CD, Steve is a versatile guitarist straight out of the Tommy Bolin, Robin Ford mould". (Ray Fenwick, Get Ready to Rock Magazine, UK)
A review from Real Blues Magazine, Gdansk, Poland. 2006
I keep on asking myself why do I like this new album by Steve Fister so much. As a matter of fact I like it much more than anything by Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang or Chris Duarte (to name just a few players who have risen to stardom during the last couple of years). Well, there are good reasons for that:
1) GUITAR TECHNIQUE: Steve is a guitar virtuoso and this always helps. He basically makes a mincemeat of âprodigiesâ like Jonny Lang.
2) GUITAR STYLE: He must have listened to an awful lot of blues, rock, soul and jazz in his formative years. He has tried it all and have absorbed what worked best for him, before arriving at where he is now. As a result you canât immediately tell his influences when youâre listening to him. He can shuffle without sounding like SRV, which is quite an achievement, especially when comparing him to Shepherd, Duarte and Bonamassa. When heâs rocking there is probably as much British blues-rock (Jeff Beck, Jimmi Page) as Hendrix in his playing. And I believe there are equally many Fisterâs own guitar patents. His riffs are both articulate and nicely twisted (this reminds me of Steve Morse, though I believe it can be Jeff Beckâs invention). So are his solos (always well composed and well placed). I find especially enjoyable this guitar trick of stretching a note, then ending it abruptly and then going on with the solo (Jeff Beck again?). On the whole this makes for a way more interesting playing than the youngsters I compare him to. I would even go as far as to say it is more intriguing and entertaining than the albums by older masters like Coco Montoya or Jimmy Thackery, since it is more varied stylistically and Steve rocks a bit harder.
3) VOCALS: Steve doesnât try too hard to sound bluesy when heâs singing, but uses his natural tone instead. While his voice isnât exactly powerful, there is a certain freshness and sharpness about it, which I find very appealing. I would say that vocally he sounds like a cross between Geddy Lee and Robert Plant with a pinch of Joe Strummer (the Clash) mixed in.
4) SONGS: He is a gifted composer and has a good pick for covers (three of the ten tracks). The songs are songs not just vehicles for shredding. Lots of hooks and catchy riffs here. As a lyricist Steve makes a frequent use of irony and his sense of humor (SHE AINâT LONESOME, IN A PAST LIFE) as well as of pleasantly uplifting lines (WONâT FALL DOWN, BETTER DAYS). Musically this is an up-tempo joyful ride, very varied stylistically. My favorites include already mentioned rocker SHE AINâT LONESOME and both âhold-onâ tracks, a dramatic bluesy ballad MASTER PLAN (in the vein of my favorite Led Zeppelin track â Since Iâve Been Loving You) , a cover of the Beatles â I CALL YOUR NAME (I love that twisted guitar phrase that is played in the background) and instrumental title track DODGINâ BULLETS (it sounds like something Dickey Betts would write for ABB in the old days and it captures the energy of Steve playing live). The other four tracks do not leave anything to be desired either!
5) PRODUCTION and INSTRUMENTATION: Everything sounds crystal-clear and there is enough space for the music to âbreatheâ. Steve knows that both sonically and instrumentally sometimes less is more. The bass is clearly audible and adds to the general impression. The bass players include Barend Courbois (No. 1 bass player of Holland â what a technique and inventiveness!), Stu Hamm and Jimmy Haslip. On drums and percussion we can hear Joey Pafumi (Walter Trout and the Radicals) and Tommy Aldridge (Whitesnake) among others. Some of the tracks feature two drummers, which helps to intensify the rhythmic layer. The only slow track â MASTER PLAN benefits from having Hammond organ as a texture element. The tasteful background vocals add warmth and spice to the overall sound.
6) SUMMARY: Steve Fister has succeeded in recording a blues-rock album that sounds fresh and modern without being overly slick. Catchy without being poppy. Optimistic without being silly or corny. Mostly fast paced without sounding forced. Virtuosic without mindless showing off. Deeply rooted in tradition without repeating the genreâs clichés. How many albums like that are released nowadays ?
