Texas based Pete Mayes has been a part of the Texas
blues scene for more than 40 years. Growing up in the small Texas town of Double Bayou,
he moved to Houston in 1960, which was becoming home for many Texas blues performers.
His musical style, both on vocals and guitar, is smooth, relaxed,
and understated. He blends blues, easy texas shuffle, and R&B styles to create a laid-back
selection of 12 tunes on
For Pete's Sake.
Most songs are backed by horn arrangements and piano accompaniment. The music is fairly consistant
throughout the entire CD. The 3 song set will give you a good feel for the overall mood of the CD.
You Don't Understand, You're Still My Baby, Next Time You See Me,
and Piney Brown Blues are slow blues or blues ballads.
Mother-in-law Blues and Just Like a Fish
are easy Texas shuffles. I Like Your Style and
Can't You See What You're Doing to Me are straight R&B.
The remaining songs are jump/swing blues.
