Blues Trio - This Train 2002
Live in 1990 at KST Club in Belgrade, Serbia.
When they first appeared, the BLUES TRIO had brought in new amounts of energy into our blues scene, which was gradually forming its recognizable expression. The TRIO, which became a duet eventually, was accepted genially from the start, built up the career step by step, with its performances at the concerts, getting better and better in Yugoslavia, as well as abroad.
The discography of this band had the usual progress from cassettes and LPs to CDs. However, it became evident in a while that both Dragan Ruzic - Macan (HOMESICK MAC) and PERA JOE are exceptional musicians. The former is in Scandinavia, building up a solo career, and the latter has become an indispensable session musician, whose favors has been abundantly used in recording studios by many for the past few years. PERA JOE and MAC make such a goos and experienced team that whenever they play live, they sound better than the previous time. The birthday party of the "All That Jazz" programme at Beograd 202 Radio station was their most convincing performance I had ever heard.
This is pure energy taking the world by storm, and "the smallest trio in the world" at its best. Enjoy yourselves!
