A Review of Jack Bruce's Album, "Silver Rails"

Silver Rails, Jack Bruce
Jack Bruce's latest solo album, "Silver Rails", is slated to be released tomorrow (Tuesday, April 15, 2014) here in the U.S., having already been released in the U.K. back on March 24. It is well worth the investment.

The legendary bassist, vocalist, and song writer, perhaps most easily identifiable for his work with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker as the '60s British power trio Cream, which quickly rose to international stardom in its short two-year run from 1966-68, is also quite the successful solo artist, with nearly five decades under his belt now and still going strong.

Long known for his ability to team up with other musicians and reach across multiple musical genres to produce unique and innovative sounds, Mr. Bruce hits the high mark again with "Silver Rails", his first studio album in a decade. Featuring elements of blues, rock, jazz, and R&B, his vocals are soulful, his bass playing on target, and, just as important, he has a solid team backing him. The guitar work, horns, keyboards/organ, drums/percussion, etc. - all done to perfection. Again, well worth the investment. A must-have for anyone who simply appreciates good music. I'm already particularly hooked on the songs, "Candlelight", "Fields of Forever", and "No Surrender". 

--Aaron S. Robertson

Here are the songs featured on "Silver Rails":

1) Candlelight
2) Reach for the Night
3) Fields of Forever

Aaron Recently Interviewed

For those of you interested, I was interviewed by two bloggers within the past week.

The first interview was conducted by John Shea about my experiences in online marketing and the call center business for his blog, Voices of Marketing.

The second interview was conducted by Amanda Laughtland. Amanda had some questions for me about my own interviews with classic rock musicians and other pop culture stars in my work as a freelance journalist.

Hope you enjoy them!

All the Best,

New Milwaukee County Program Helps Veterans in Their Job Search

For Immediate Release

New Milwaukee County Program Helps Veterans in Their Job Search

MILWAUKEE – Military veterans are getting a new tool to help them in their job hunt: a free flash drive loaded with their military service record, resume and other important job hunting documents. The flash drive program is the latest service added by Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele to help veterans across Wisconsin.

“We are always looking for ways to add services and program for veterans. We’ve heard from veterans and employers that one of the biggest roadblocks vets face in their job search is having all of their important documents in one place; this helps solve that problem,” County Executive Abele said. “This program will especially help low-income veterans who might not have a personal computer or easy access to a computer.”

Milwaukee County purchased 300 flash drives (picture below) and another 2000 flash drives were donated by Master Lock. So far, more than 65 veterans have pre-registered and will receive their flash drives at the 11th Milwaukee County Veterans Job Fair on Thursday, March 6 from 9am-1pm at the War Memorial Center.  The Job Fair will feature a record number of employers, more than 70 companies, looking to interview and hire military veterans.

The job fair is run by the Milwaukee County Veterans Service Office.  Additional coordination and support for the event is provided by the Zablocki VA Medical Center and veterans employment representatives of the DWD Office of Veterans Services.

Veterans Job Fair
When: Thurday, March 6th – 9am – 1pm
Where: Milwaukee County War Memorial Center
Flash Drive Program: Veterans looking for more information about the flash drive program should contact Veteran’s Service Director Jim Duff, 414-266-1235 or jduff@milwcnty.com
