OMAHA BLUES SOCIETY PRESENTS CURTIS SALGADO W/ BRAD CORDLE
The Beautiful Lowdown is Salgado’s most fearless and adventurous release to date. For the first time in his career, he wrote or co-wrote virtually the entire album himself. He co-produced it along with Marlon McClain and Tony Braunagel and contributed to the horn arrangements and background vocal parts. “My heart and soul are in this,” he says proudly. “I worked my tail off and let the songs lead the way.” As for the title, Salgado explains, “During a recent show, I turned to my guitarist and said, ‘Play something lowdown. But make it beautiful.’ Then I thought, ‘Keep that.’.”
Winner of the 2013 Blues Music Award for Soul Blues Male Artist of the Year, Soul Blues Album of the Year and the coveted B.B. King Entertainer of the Year, Salgado effortlessly mixes blues, funk and R&B with a delivery that is raw and heartfelt.
