Murry Rhodes - Empty Bottle of Bubbly     Blues/Roots, Jazz, Blues, Easy Listening 01/09/2018
Australian outback piano (sing a song) man and a rough cut diamond. Blending piano with a smokey timbered voice creating charcoal images of life's little journeys through his music.
This is a fun little observation that the rich man's blues may consist of an Empty Bottle of Bubbly. Working class folk just trying to scrape by might just wish that an empty bottle of bubbly were their only blues . A kind of upbeat funky jazz blues I guess?.. A happy quirky blues. :D
