Murali Coryell Update. Living Blues Review!!!

From Murali Coryell

 The review appeared in the April #206 issue of Living Blues
Murali Coryell
Sugar Lips
Murali's Music Records

Sure, Murali Coryell's famous last name can open up some doors. However, as second-generation musicians often find out, they've got to have the skills to follow that name with them through the door. That being said, Murali Coryell not only has the skills, but more importantly, he's got the feel. Coryell's latest disc, "Sugar Lips" is a breezy, groove-inducing shuffle-fest that's got plenty of laidback, seductive swagger and affable spirit to burn. Translation-it's a fun record.
Murali, the son of iconic jazz guitar master Larry Coryell, has been steadily making a name for himself with a soulful brand of roadhouse-themed blues/rock. His music has plenty of sauntering overtones as well, ranging from funk to R&B, that reveals the depth of resources the younger Coryell has picked up. He can play beer-soaked blues until last call, and he can also hang with more pop-tinged material-think a grittier, bluesier John Mayer.
Coryell rocks like a madman on the combustible "Blame It On Me", gracefully slides through the senuous "What You Gonna Do About Me", and shows his poignant bittersweet side through the heartbreaking tale of "Mother's Day"-featuring a classy guitar solo courtesy of dad Larry. In addition to Coryell's legendary dad, Joe Louis Walker also contributes some tasty, ultra-hip guitar runs and a vocal turn on the Isley Brothers-inspired "Minor Funk". For a little icing on this soulful cake, how about SRV sideman Reese Wyans providing keys throughout? The atmosphere is slick but not over-produced. Coryell never pushes the envelope too much but knocks around like an unruly child within its boundaries.
Murali Coryell's got the same charismatic demeanor and natural sense of musical intuition as another second-generation rockin' bluesman, Ronnie Baker Brooks. The pair would be explosive touring together (hint, hint guys). Is Murali Coryell in his influential father's shadow? Nope. With "Sugar Lips", Murali's now casting a shadow of his own.
