Sonny & Brownie's Last Train album by the Ambassador of the Blues, NY blues legend Guy Davis and international harmonica sensation Fabrizio Poggi takes their deep, acoustic blues sessions which took place in Milan (Italy) and were recorded live in the studio. The result captured the special musical connection that Guy and Fabrizio possess from the years of playing and recording together.

The release will be also be available on vinyl! The first time Guy has ever released a Blues recording on vinyl. Sonny & Brownie's Last Train marks the 14th recording by Guy Davis in his storied career and his third with M.C. Records. His first album "Juba Dance" was produced by Fabrizio and also recorded in Italy.

Guy explains the concept of the recording, "Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry were two musicians whose work will not be surpassed, let alone improved on. This musical opus, was produced by Fabrizio Poggi. It features our combined musical talents, and is not meant to compete with the originals. It's meant to be a love letter to Brownie and Sonny signed by the both of us. They were two of our favourites".

FABRIZIO POGGI - singer, harmonica player and writer who is a Hohner Lifetime Award Blues Music Awards nominee, Jimi Awards winner as "Best International album", Jimi Awards nominee as "Best album of the year" and Jimi Awards nominee as "Best harmonica player".

He has 20 albums to date, 4 books and numerous appearances around the globe, he's played at the most prestigious clubs and festivals in Europe and USA (including the Carnegie Hall in New York with Eric Burdon and Buddy Guy).

He's also got an amazing list of artists he's played with including The Blind Boys of Alabama, Charlie Musselwhite, Little Feat, Ronnie Earl, Kim Wilson, Marcia Ball, John Hammond, Sonny Landreth, Garth Hudson of THE BAND and Bob Dylan, Eric Bibb, Ruthie Foster, Otis Taylor, Mike Zito, Bob Margolin, Flaco Jim?nez, David Bromberg, Zachary Richard, Jerry Jeff Walker, Bob Brozman, Eric Andersen, Richard Thompson, Tom Russell, Jimmy LaFave, The Original Blues Brothers Band, Steve Cropper ?and many others.


When Guy Davis plays the blues, he doesn't want you to notice how much art is involved. "It takes work making a song that's simple, and playful, and easy to do," he says. "And I don't want people to see that. I want to uplift and create something that causes delight".

Davis' much-praised 1995 debut, Stomp Down the Rider on Red House Records, marked the arrival of a major talent, earning acclaim for his deft acoustic playing, his well-traveled voice and his literate, yet highly accessible songwriting. He's barely rested since then, taking his music to television (the Conan O'Brien and David Letterman shows) and radio (A Prairie Home Companion, Mountain Stage, World Cafe, E-Town), as well as performing at theaters and festivals. And he's played the four corners of the world, with a recent tour taking him from the Equator to the Arctic Circle. He played the Ukraine in summer of 2014, just a week or so before the statues of Lenin were torn down. He even played for the visiting Queen of Denmark when he performed at a children's home in Greenland.

Kokomo Kidd, Guy's twelfth studio album and his follow-up to the stripped-down, critically acclaimed 2013 release "Juba dance", produced in Italy by Fabrizio. As always he combines modern with traditional blues, the somber and the celebratory.
