Siegal’s second live album in twelve months sees Ian taking his electric band to the legendary North Sea Jazz Club in Amsterdam.
One Night in Amsterdam is Ian Siegal’s first full band live album, following on from theÂ acoustic offering,Â Man and Guitar,Â recorded at the iconic Royal Albert Hall last year. The album is a superb collection of blues, roots, and good old fashioned rock n’ roll delivered from Ian’s extensive back catalog as well as some new materials and covers of some artists who have inspired Ian over the years. Joining the award winning British bluesman in his incredibly talented European electric band is Dusty Ciggaar (guitar), Raphael Schwiddessen (drums), and Danny Vanâ€™t Hoff (bass).
Ian’s latest offering has it all, up tempo rock n’ roll numbers like, “I Am The Train” from The Candy StoreÂ Kid,Â funky blues numbers like “Brandy Balloon” from Meat and Potatoes,Â alongside Americana numbers in the form of Ian’s cover of Tom Russell’s “Gallo Del Cielo” all of which see Siegal’s guitarist Dusty Ciggaar coming into his own with captivating solo’s. Ian pays homage to one of his heroes Nottingham’s Harry Stephenson with a powerful and heartfelt rendition of “Writing On The Wall.”
The band are joined on stage for the final two numbers by Joel and Tess Gaerthe who add some magical harmonies to Siegal’s stunning cover of The Everly Brothers “Love Hurts” and one of Ian’s latest numbers “Please Don’t Fail Me.”
One Night in Amsterdam is a must for Siegal and Blues Rock fans alike. The album will be released on cd and vinyl on March 9 in the U.K.
