Umberto Porcaro, guitarist and singer from Sicily, after ten years of his last recording episode is proud to present ‘Take Me Home’ released Sunday, October 9 in CD and vinyl format and available on all digital platforms. The album features two true legends of contemporary blues, from the most representative and iconic styles of this music: Lurrie Bell from Chicago and Anson Funderburgh from Texas.
The soundtrack chosen for the teaser of the album, ‘You Was’, is a song dedicated to his father, who died suddenly three years ago. A father always present in Umberto’s life and musical career, starting as his first supporter and then becoming the band’s tour manager.
Umberto Porcaro says: “I decided to call the album Take Me Home because for me it really means a homecoming, the blues is and will always be home for me. Inside this album I wanted to put my joys, my pains, my troubles. Who I am today is due to all the experiences I went through and the marks I wear on my skin. For this journey, in addition to my band (Federico Patarnello on drums and Giulio Campagnolo on Hammond organ), I wanted to have by my side Stanley Sargeant on bass, Marco Pandolfi on harp, and I am honored to have as guests two musicians that I really love: Lurrie Bell and Anson Funderburgh. ‘
