Joe Bonamassa - An Acoustic Evening at The Vienna Opera House

Going Up

Where Clapton is content, or indifferent, to descent [Old Sock], successor, surely, Bonamassa maintains the quality control of his prodigious ascent on latest An Acoustic Evening at The Vienna Opera House where his impressive back catalogue is re-presented with a nonetheless large sound because of the attendant other acoustic players. These versions reiterate the class of Joe’s own musicianship, which is beyond question, and the genuine puissance of his songwriting skills. There is a notable depth to the overall sound provided in particular by the fiddle of Gerry O Conner, but the venue itself clearly contributes to the musical aura writ large by this performance.
