Many will scratch their heads and notice: "de Soto says nothing to me so far ”. The Senior Allstars, on the other hand, should all readers of the Dubblog be relatively well known. Markus Dassmann (bass, guitar, keyboard / organ, melodica, percussion), the Spiritus Rector of the Senior Allstars and Martin Musch (drums) have already teamed up some time ago under the label Ancient Mountain Records and released some interesting things. With "Silverado Days“(De Soto / Echo Beach Lifefidelity) Markus Dassmann is now releasing his first solo album with the help of Martin Musch. Then we get the music that Markus has been playing with the Senior Allstars for many years: Instrumentals with classic Jamaican sounds, rock steady and occasional - unfortunately quite sparingly set here - DubElements. What might bother some is the relatively frequent use of the melodica, which sounds a bit too uniform in places. Perhaps Mr. Dassmann could think about whether the use of an accordion or bandoneon would be an attractive alternative. The eleven songs, all of which are original compositions by the musical master and composer Dassmann, develop on the basis of beautiful, catchy riddims. Somehow the whole thing sounds like an album that could have been released in the 1970s - but with a much richer sound. The tracks are recorded analogue, have a pleasant, warm sound and come naturally. “Silverado Days” is another album with really decelerated tunes that sneak comfortably unobtrusively into the ear canals. Quality always wins.
