BLUES: Electric Blues, BLUES: Chicago Style
CG & The Hammer " is collaboration between two veteran Blues artists: Singer / harmonica player Dov Hammer and Guitarist/singer Sagi (CG) Shorer. When these two American - born Bluesmen first met in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1999, both had already paid plenty of dues, both as sidemen (sharing stages with such blues greats as Steve Freund, Paul deLay, Zora Young, Deitra Farr, Billy Branch and the late King Earnest Baker, among others) and leading their own bands. The two soon joined forces to create the group now known as "The CG & the Hammer ".
Their debut album "Feels like home" was released in 2002 to great critical acclaim, and was followed by two US tours âin 2004 to Ohio and Chicago, where they shared a stage with the great Willie Kent, and in 2005 to the south â Florida, Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee, where they represented Israel at the Blues foundations International Blues Challenge.
CG & The Hammers music is a combination of passion, energy and honesty. It is never a re-creation of sounds from the past, but rather an updated, vital celebration of the Blues as the soundtrack of real life.
On "Blues Heaven" the band continue on this path, remaining deep in the Blues tradition, while incorporating influences of rock and country music. The album includes 10 original songs by the band â including "Slow night in Clarksdale", a memoir from their pilgrimage to the birthplace of the blues, and the title track "Blues Heaven", written in the wake of the terrorist attack on the bands "home club" , "Mike's place" in Tel Aviv.
The critics praise:
