Corky Siegel decided to return to solo recording in the early '90s, prompted by a few reunion concerts with his old partner, Jim Schwall. Instead of taking the easy way out and predictably running through a few standards, Siegel came up with the Chamber Blues project. As the title suggests, Corky Siegel's Chamber Blues fuses blues with classical music. Specifically, it features a string quartet, Siegel on piano and harmonica, and a tabla player. It certainly sounds intriguing on paper, but it never quite gels, since it's always possible to visualize the scaffolding that supports the music. Still, Siegel proves himself to be more ambitious than the average blues musician, and...

    great CD produced by Hans Wurman

    This is a fascinating mix of classical and blues music. It was produced by Hans Wurman. Wurman has done much for music: composed, taught, arranged, directed. Wurman is also responsible for introducing the Moog to the United States. Corky Siegal does an incredibly excellent job of bringing some very talented classical musicians together (the ''chamber blues'' part) and mixing it with his own inimitable renditions of the blues.
