DAVE FIELDS: ALL WOUND UP Though the blues are timeless - some would say even "timely" in 2008 - the musicians and their path to the original and most profound American art form has been remarkably consistent while also evolving. Toiling from sun up to sun down on sweltering plantations behind the "south end of a mule heading north," with instrumental traditions passed on from family members, gave way to numbing manual labor in the cities and "on the job training" after hours in brutal bar room cutting sessions. Recordings have always been a prime source of instruction going all the way back to Robert Johnson in the 1930s, who was known to snatch music off the radio, as well as big 78 RPM platters. New York City genre-busting blues guitarist Dave Fields can rightfully boast that he experienced the hip modern version of the blues education. He was born in Manhattan to Sammy "Forever" Fields, the lauded virtuoso pianist, composer, arranger and producer with remarkably eclectic tastes from classic American standards and jazz to rock 'n' roll such as the Royal Teens "Short Shorts" and the Capris' "There's A Moon Out Tonight." He was thrilled when his son expressed a desire to go pro and would later show his vast knowledge and awareness of contemporary rock by always replying that the "best" guitarists in the world were Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. Dave Fields was raised by a nanny from Macon, Georgia named Olive Nettles Still whom he calls mom and who helped instill a southern-fried flavor in the urbane young man. The first "dues" he "paid" consisted of his father demanding he receive a thorough musical foundation by studying the piano starting at eight, followed later by the bass, before he was allowed to move on to the coveted guitar at age 14. Between an exceptionally stimulating musical environment and his precocious talent, Fields quickly became an accomplished pianist and a skillful guitarist who began playing sessions with his father at 15. With the recording studio as his second home he became familiar with the technology while also meeting all the top session cats and producers. By 16 he had added composition to his ever expanding talents by creating his first big band score. Eventually he would become proficient on acoustic and electric bass, Dobro, pedal and lap steel, mandolin, drums and B-3 organ. Fields studied performance and composition/arranging at the Berklee School of Music in Boston. Returning to the Big Apple he arranged, composed and produced for various record labels while also plying his trade as a sought after studio multi-instrumentalist. Versed in singing and playing virtually all styles of music beyond the blues, he went on tour with Tommy James and the Shondells and was director for the New Voices of Freedom who performed with U2 in their movie Rattle and Hum. Besides playing with and producing numerous jazz and blues luminaries, Fields was a staff member for Look Music and has written CDs for many music libraries. In 1996 he marshaled his boundless energy, ambition and enthusiasm to start Fields Music that services the radio, TV, web, film and industrial markets. He recorded his first solo CD, Field of Vision, in 1998 A Wastin' in 2007. His latest and greatest, All Wound Up (FMI Records), is an expansive 12 song set of originals that span the musical rainbow of the blues. "Train to My Heart" pays homage to Fields' second biggest influence after his father with a charging, heart pounding riff rocker that Mr. Hendrix would approve. With a tough, swirling guitar hook and a wicked wah wah pedal solo, he expresses to his beloved his locomotive affection that keeps "chugging like a big drum roll." "Ain't No Crime" changes direction and groove by getting down with a big hunk of nasty funk. Fields "raps" like a street-wise kid over the booty-shaking progression as singer Ada Dyer aggressively fires back with her gospelly exhortations while harp blower Billy Gibson fills in like a Chicago blues demon. The joyous and jubilant R&B-powered title track follows with Fields showcasing his wry and sly vocals
