Coco Montoya: Blues Breaker

Coco Montoya began his musical career as a drummer for the great Albert Collins. The two became friends, with Albert Collins teaching Coco how to play guitar in his own distinctive “icy” style. This is all the more remarkable in that Coco Montoya is left handed, and learned to play upside down on a right handed guitar. He learned so well he finally left the band, though the two remained friends, and he wound up joining John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, playing with them for ten years. Now, of course, he is widely known as his own man, and one of the blues guitar legends. His latest is called HARD TRUTH. This is a bit of gospel tinged R&B for you: “I Want To Shout About It.”
