So Low

Tim Williams

Lowden Proud Records 2015

Review by David Bowling

 

The title of Tim Williams new album. So Low, is actually a take on the word solo. That means the music is just Williams alone; his guitar, his voice, his imagination, and a little toe tapping with no overdubs or studio wizardry. In many ways this is the way the blues was meant to be played.

It is an album of original compositions and covers of some classic blues tunes by such artists as Mose Allison, Big Bill Broonzy, and Blind Boy Fuller.

Williams is a purist and his music reflects his love of the blues. If you have a need to hear some old style blues whose legacy is connected to the Southern Delta of the United States, then Tim Williams’ So Low is an album for you.
