The new one from Craig Chaquico is "Fire Red Moon" and it's on Blind Pig. CC is a pretty interesting guy - this Bay Area dude has been at this for about 30 years and is probably best known as the guitar player for Jefferson Starship, then Starship and has also been a busy session guy and has a number of solo albums. This one is of the bluesy persuasion and if I were grading philosophy papers at good ol' VC, I'd say this one was "competent but uninspired," although the "Devil's Daughter" is pretty good. No doubt, Chaquico can play but I prefer my blues on the raggedy side - Seasick Steve and like that.
