Scorching Blues Rocked The Extended Play Sessions

Bobby Thompson Project made a much-anticipated return to The Extended Play Sessions last month. I did not think it would be possible to repeat the energy of his previous appearance in June; not only was it repeated, it was surpassed.

This is mostly a photo essay about this show. Do not misinterpret this as a dislike of the show (as in, ‘if you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything at all’); because I reviewed Bobby so recently, I decided to let the photos to speak volumes to you. The show was incendiary!

Bobby’s band was slightly different from the last time he appeared at the Sessions. Jeff Mills is still drumming for the band, but for this show Danny Infante played bass and sang backing vocals, and Will Rast (Antibalas) played keyboards. They are all terrific musicians who supported Bobby extremely well.

The band recently released a live album, Live at IOTA, a venue in the Washington, DC area where they live. If you want to buy an album of Bobby’s music that accurately captures his energy and talent, that is the album you should own.

Better still, you should see him live.

Bobby may not like the next photo, but I think his expression beautifully captures his music.

I've loved the arts all my life... I go to a lot of concerts, take lots of photos and want to share them. Every once in a while I do something other than a concert, too. The Boston area is full of opportunities to indulge my passion - I'd like to help make it yours too!
