Dave Weld & The Imperial Flames – Nightwalk
Delmark DE 874 (May 27 2022)
“NIGHTWALK” IS THE THIRD DELMARK ALBUM FOR DAVE WELD & THE IMPERIAL FLAMES. Deepening on the furrows opened by “Burnin’ Love” and “Slip Into a Dream”, Dave, Monica and their band weave an original tapestry of pure Chicago blues tradition with a forward-looking sound and energy. Bringing along the beauty of the tradition he learned next to Chicago blues stalwart J.B. Hutto, Dave Weld is one of the few real innovators in the blues realm of today. His song “Mary Who” is an authentic tour de force, a vivid portrait of urban life where Dave Weld proves his mettal as storyteller. Moreover, in every single track of this ground-breaking album we can relate to the vibrations of contemporary life blowing like a fresh breeze from the depths of a well-rooted sonority. The album was recorded at Joyride Studio, mixed at The Switchyard Studio in Nashville, produced by Tom Hambridge and post-produced at Delmark Records Riverside Studio by Elbio Barilari and Julia A. Miller, who was also the album’s mastering engineer.
