Silent Partners Speak Up

Silent Partners — Tony Coleman (drums/vocals),
Russell Jackson (bass) and Jonathan Ellison (guitar/
vocals) — boast more than a century’s worth of
experience playing the blues. Their individual
resumes include stints with B.B. King, Albert King,
Bobby Blue Bland, Johnnie Taylor, Otis Clay, Denise
LaSalle, Matt “Guitar” Murphy and a host of other
blues heavyweights.

But Changing Times on Little Village is all
Silent Partners. Their blues comes from a deep well,
with the band having a keen feel for the rhythm of
each song and the ability to play only the notes that
need to be played. It is a simple, straightforward
musical attribute, yet too often rare in
today’s blues recordings.

So sit back and enjoy the benefit of listening to
real blues guys playing real blues music.

What the critics are saying:

“Changing Times is as good a set of blues as I’ve
heard this year.” — Blues Bytes

“This Little Village Foundation release feels like cool
blast of water from a from a fire hydrant on a hot
summer day.” – Blues Junction Productions

“Front-to-back, this is modern blues with solid
rhythmic sensibilities, soaring guitar ventures, rousing
vocals, and great sound throughout. Not to be
missed!” — Curt’s Blues

“A searing set of contemporary blues.”
— Red, Hot ‘n Blues Music Review
