San Francisco based drummer and bandleader Nick Fishman’s debut album, California Fresh, brings blues into the modern world with a slickness and big city sophistication currently found nowhere else in the idiom. The album, which features an eight piece band made up of San Francisco’s top call Blues and Jazz players, reveals the band’s talent on nine original songs and an arrangement of Little Richard’s Freedom Blues.
