New Orleans bluesman Luke Winslow-King
's latest album Everlasting Arms
(Bloodshot Records) finds the singer-songwriter and guitarist digging into prewar and Delta blues, soul, folk and shed shaking rock 'n' roll. He'll celebrate with a release show 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 17 at Blue Nile.
In Gambit's 2014 Music Issue
, Winslow-King said guitarist Roberto Luti is the album's "secret weapon," complementing Winslow-King's playing, from the funky, Stones-esque "Domino Sugar" to the slide-filled "Crystal Water Springs." "Swing That Thing," a live standout, gets a studio rave up on Everlasting Arms
, and rich horns pepper Winslow-King's hometown Michigan love letter "Cadillac Slim."
