Album Reviews & Tour Pics

Two reviews are in from the Netherlands! Theo Volk at Music That Needs Attention and MusicMeter writes: ""Winter" is a varied blues album with rock influences from the sixties. It definitely belongs to the very best blues releases of this year." And Jan van Eck continues at Blues n Roots Corner: "...All the bragging and boasting about the new album of The Rolling Stones is not my cup of tea. Andres Roots shows that there is far better blues to get." - read full English version here!

Below are a few pics from the recent Bottleneck Guitar Trendsetters tour in the Baltics: Vilnius, Alytus, Panevezys and Bauska. With Ismo Haavisto and Aleksandr belkin, photos by Lehar Lukjanov.

ZT Lunchbox

Andres Roots has been using ZT Amplifiers' Lunchbox amp for over a year now and he's now officially a ZT Artist - along with Andy Summers, Billy Gibbons, Jason Newsted, Jeff Tweedy, Julian Lage, Mem Shannon, Nels Cline, Thurston Moore and many others - check out the complete list here!

Here's a clip from last Friday in Riga, Latvia with Raul Terep, the Lunchbox used in combination with an Ampeg bass combo - below, a solo clip from April with just the Lunchbox; the PA was *not* used in either case.


On Monday, December 5, 5:30 p.m. (GMT +2), tune in to Kesk-Eesti Tre Raadio for a live phone interview with Andres Roots on the subject of his new album "Winter".
