St Harmonica's Blues Club: The Manny Fizzotti Blues Trio + Simon Hindley
After the Blues Rock of the Keith Airey Band last week something more attuned to the blues purist this Friday when Emanuele Fizzotti bring his band The Manny Fizzotti Blues Trio to the club.
Manny is a superb player who has played and toured with some of the best in Europe. Rated as one of Italy’s foremost and most versatile blues guitarist Manny studied at the guitar Institute in Los Angeles before becoming London based in 2011. He has played at just about every leading venue there is and toured Europe extensively as part of the Great British Rhythmn & Blues Invasion with the likes of Ian Siegal, Big Joe Louis and others.
In his live performances with his trio Manny mixes up blues classics and his own blues compositions and, when he plays a dobro guitar with slide in real “Delta blues style”, he takes the listener back to the smoky atmosphere of the Mississipi juke-joints.
Some of the plaudits from those that know are shown below:
“A very good guitarist with real blues feeling , lots of talent and a lot of good taste, a really good musician that can play blues and variations on blues in many styles with taste and credibility”
(Bruce Iglauer - Head of “Alligator Records” in Chicago)
“Fizzotti’s versatility and technical ability are extremely impressive, he is obviously an outstanding guitar player and a good singer with a warm and enjoyable voice” (Blues Blast Magazine)
“Great playing!” (Jim Simpson - Head of “Big Bear Records”, “Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival” and first manager of “Black Sabbath”)
“An endearing singer and tasty guitar player” (Henry Yates - “Classic Rock” magazine)
