A MUSICAL HIT MAN IS “ALL IN”

While the dean of New Jersey harmonica players, Rob Paparozzi, will headline Sunday’s Blues-A-Palooza at Tim McCloone’s Supper Club in Asbury Park, one very talented singer-songwriter and guitarist who hasn’t been back to the Jersey Shore in some time will perform earlier in the afternoon.

Dave Fields, raised in Bergen County and New York City, will bring his trio to the Supper Club Sunday afternoon for Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation’s now-annual fundraiser.

Fields’ spry, groundbreaking original blues and blues-rock tunes, over the course of four albums, have ushered him into the national spotlight in recent years.

The guitar playing on Fields’ latest release, “All In,” contains echoes of Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Muddy Waters, to name a few. What’s more, one of the top talent spotters in the world of blues, the Godfather of British Blues, John Mayall, included a Fields song on his new album. Mayall recorded Fields’ song, “Train to My Heart” on his 2014 album, “Tough.”

Pressed on his approach to songwriting, Fields, answering his cell phone on the way to Stanhope House where he runs the Tuesday night jam session with Johnny Charles and others, said he can’t remember a time he wasn’t interested in blues. His father ran commercial jingle studios in Bergen County and in New York City, so as a kid, Fields often found himself in the company of people like Stevie Wonder and Sammy Kahn.

“Honestly, since I was a kid, I was always attracted to the blues. The first songs I wrote as a kid were blues songs. I feel like it’s always been in my blood,” he said. “It’s weird how life is. I remember as a young kid listening to my father play piano, and one day he plays me this elaborate Jerry Lee Lewis type thing. From that day on, I was hooked on the blues, and my dad is from North Florida, he actually grew up not far from where Ray Charles grew up.”

Fields credits his father — Sammy “Forever” Fields — still active as recording studio owner, with urging him to learn how to play a lot of different instruments in a lot of different styles.

“Unlike many blues musicians, I was raised to be a musical ‘hit man.’ I got to do sessions with many famous musicians and producers like Tommy James and Ahmet Ertegun,” he explained.

After graduating from the Berklee College of Music, Fields spent time lending his expertise to musicians like Steve Jordan, Alex Foster, Dave Valentin, blues singer Roxy Perry and Billy Martin of Medeski, Martin and Wood.

For an audience unfamiliar with Fields or any of his four albums —or his hit song, “Rabbi Blues” — Fields says he prefers to think of himself as a multifaceted musician who is grounded in blues.

At Supper Club on Sunday, he’ll be accompanied by John Meola on bass and Jerry Lobozzo, drums.

“I like to do a mixture of things because I was always exposed to so many things in New York City, such a melting pot of people and cultures,” Fields said.

“You’ll hear blues and blues-rock for sure, but you’ll also hear funk, jazz, country, rock ’n’ roll and even Latin music. I like to keep people guessing, keep them on their toes.”

ALL IN was recorded mostly live in the studio. It features many of the same musicians on Dave’s first three CD’s TIME’S A WASTIN’, ALL WOUND UP & DETONATION: Andy Huenerberg (bass), Kenny Soule (drums), Vladimir Barsky (keys), Dave Moore (drums) and some new comers: Tony Tino (bass) and special guest BMA nominee Dave Keyes (piano).

There are many different flavors of Dave featured on this CD. The rockin’-fatalistic “Changes In My Life” starts off the CD with a scintillating guitar solo that zooms off into the clouds. Dave blazes away on the spooky-rock “Voodoo Eyes” which will take you to a place where classic rock legends dwell. “Let’s Go Downtown” will get you “boogie-in” your seat while the surreal-lamenting “Dragon Fly” drifts through layers of realities. ALL IN winds down a road that will take you to your limit and then drop you in a place that will make you say, “Oh Yeah!”

BLUES MATTERS.COM “ALL IN” REVIEW & “ALL IN” is #5


Check out this review:

BLUES MATTERS.COM “ALL IN” REVIEW
By Adrian Blacklee

Dave Fields has a wonderful musical pedigree across several genres and his career has already seen him get inducted into the New York Blues Hall Of Fame and win the best independent blues album in 2006 with Roxy Perry’s Back In Bluesville release, it is only recently that he has decided to push forward and concentrate on his own musical career.

This album kicks off with high octane doses of rocking blues with Dave demonstrating he is a notable ‘Guitar Slingers’, when you consider his additional talents of song writer, vocalist and producer you can see he really is a stand out artist. The supporting musicians cover the key rhythm areas with everything else left to Dave to weave his magic, two tracks worthy of mention are songs that are probably not strong blues themed ones but have aspects that highlight Dave’s versatility: Dragon Fly which has progressive mystical undertones with a slow guitar led intro and Lovers Holiday which is an acoustic unplugged raw love song performed solo, one of two covers is Led Zeppelin’s Black Dog which was recorded live in Norway with local musicians and is given a unique re-working, the guitar work is exceptional.

While being predominately a rocking blues album there is plenty of variety on show here highlighting that not only is Dave Fields a quality musician but he is prepared to stretch the blues boundaries and not be constrained by them.

Wow…! Thanks Adrian! I’m so excited that “ALL IN” is currently #5 on The RMR Top 50 Blues Rock charts! Yeah baby!

I’m so excited to announce that I will be having a “residency” at New Jersey’s legendary blues-roots roadhouse THE STANHOPE HOUSE 45 Main St Stanhope NJ.

My residency will end (for the time being) the last Friday of March. I will also be doing a 45 minute opening act show before every Stanhope House R&B Review Band gig, then I will come back up to play two songs with Stanhope House R&B Review Band and then join them on keyboards. I’m so looking forward to seeing you at one of my shows!
