"The most effective instrumentals don''t just convey rhythm and melody, they evoke sonic landscapes with near cinematic clarity. That every cut of Mayan Mud (Shoeless Records) transports listeners to exotic places speaks to the expertise of San Francisco''s Little Muddy. Rich
Goldstein(guitars), Scott Shaw(bass and keyboards), Vince Littleton (drums),are masters of mood, hooks, tone, and dramatic effect. "Dark Alley Swing" and "Nitro-Burnin and Modified" are the nearest to blues, but an adventurous nature is hinted at by upside-down photographs, country twanging and bends, jazzy chording, bluesy snarls,and splashes of surf abound. They cover Floyd Cramer, Elmer Bernstein , Henry Mancini, and put AC/DC on the open range- is compelling and rewarding.," --Blues Revue Magazine, Dec/Jan 2004
With a combination of evocative and rocking original instrumentals, and great interpretations of classic movie themes, R+B, country and rock classics, Little Muddy
has forged a unique niche in instrumental roots-music.
Starting with the first cd release in 1999 entitled Little Muddy, through 2003''s Mayan Mud, and continuing with 2008''s The Road to Bodie; a collection of solo instrumentals ready for film, tv, and commercial licensing, the band has
contributed music to the soundtracks of Camerado film productions: the award winning documentary Book Wars, and the recently released Susan Hero.
Guitarist and founder Rich Goldstein has been a part of the Bay Area''s music scene since 1990. Having spent his early years in rural southern illinois, he was exposed
to the best music of the 50''s, 60''s, and 70''s, especially the country music of the day. The daily bus ride home on gravel roads was often accompanied to whatever was playing on driver''s Bud Hiller or Norris Haglers 8-track player.
