Delta Groove Music/Productions is a labor of love and culmination of a lifelong obsession with blues and roots music on the part of celebrated producer and successful entrepreneur Randy Chortkoff. Each Delta Groove project is undertaken with the guiding principle that quality speaks for itself, so the utmost care is given to every detail, from A&R to production to packaging to promotion - but first and foremost, the performances. Delta Groove is all about the music. Without great performers and great performances, nothing else matters.
The newest member of the Delta Groove family is, Jason Ricci & New Blood. Jason is an extraordinary artist whose skills on his instrument of choice, the harmonica, continue to reach new levels. At the age of 21, Jason placed first in the Sonny Boy Blues Society contest in Helena, AK and shortly thereafter began working and paying his dues with the likes of Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside. Over the years Jason has crossed paths and worked with other up & coming talent including Enrico Crivellaro and Nick Curran, in addition to winning numerous awards including the "Muddy Waters Award" for most promising talent, and signing on as an endorsee with Hohner Harmonicas. His upcoming release for Delta Groove will be produced by the Grammy Award winning producer John Porter. With a touring schedule of over 300 days a year, you can be sure it won't be long before you can catch this rising star performing in your own home town. www.jasonricci.com
