For the very first time Mick is stepping out from Simply Red,
and has announced a new European summer tour to support
his eagerly anticipated debut solo studio album Tribute To Bobby,
released May 19th.
The Bobby in question is the enormously influential African- American
singer Bobby Blue Bland, sometimes referred to as the Lion of the Blues.
Tribute to Bobby is a twelve track master class in soul, blues and R&B
and a tribute to one of Hucknall? most important inspirations and musical idols.
Along with such artists as Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and Junior Parker,
Bland developed a sound that mixed gospel with blues and R&B.
He sang classics such as big-band blues number Farther Up The Road
(US R&B top 10 hit in 1957) and perfected his craft in the 1960 with a series
of releases including Cry Cry Cry and I Pity The Fool.
On the album Tribute to Bobby Hucknall compelling vocals emphasise the sentiment
of each of the twelve cover songs, whilst masterfully adopting the songs
and making them entirely his own.
