Albert Castiglia releases his debut with Solid Ground at Ruf, but can already look back on a whole series of albums. The man has been playing blues in all sorts of facets for over 20 years, but always with the necessary authenticity, expressive vocals, an extremely effective guitar, great songs, skilful playing with dynamics and also the necessary pinch of humour ("Put Some Stank On It") distinguish him pleasantly from other acts. Riff-rich blues rock ("Going Down Slow"), sometimes an acoustic number ("Hard Time") and ethno blues ("Little Havanna Blues") round off the overall package.
