“Double Standards” is a celebration of the greatest blues songs, performed as duets by Mick Kolassa with some of his musical friends. Mick’s love of many blues styles is well known, and this album brings the listener a wide range of blues, from down home to classic Chicago to jazzy to blues rock, Mick and his friends bring you the many faces of the blues.
As with his previous albums, the proceeds from “Double Standards” will go to the Blues Foundation’s HART Fund and Generation Blues programs.
Marty's review: Mick Kolassa has gathered some of his musical friends and produced an album of 13 classic blues standards. They are all done with Mick's usual sense of finesse and style and he has stuck to the traditional style of blues in which the originals were recorded with an added touch of his own. With some very fine musicianship to back him up and choosing songs by the likes of Willie Dixon, Hudson Whitaker and B B King, this collection of blues will please all blues and roots fans.
