Waltertroutatparadiso02Walter Trout and the Radicals
New Jersey electric blues guitarist Walter Trout is a seasoned veteran with killer licks, rich tones, and exhilarating stage presence.  Having spent years as a sideman, Trout's resume is as equally impressive as his guitar playing as he backed the likes of John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thorton, John Mayhall and even did a stint with Canned Heat.  During his stretch with Mayhall, Trout was spotted by a Danish concert promoter who sponsored his first solo tour.  Now a headliner, he released his debut, Life in the Jungle.  The disc is a well-balanced mix of studio work and live tracks where the guitar slinger showcases his songwriting abilities but also tackles tasty covers of Hendrix's "Red Houseâ" and Buddy Guy's "Sheâ's Out There Somewhere."  Trout released five more imports on the indie blues label Provouge before issuing his self-titled A&M disc in 1998.  The American debut spent a year on Blues Revue's Top 40 sales chart where it peaked at number 8, and Trout received high marks for his fiery leads and sensitive solos.  His latest, Deep Trout, is a compilation of unreleased material dating back to 1972 through 1997. Comprised of mainly self-penned material, the disc takes you through the evolution of this blues man. March 25, 9 p.m., 21+, $15, Jazzbones, 2803 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, (253) 396-9169.  Also Sunday, March 26, 7 p.m., all ages dinner show, Jazzbones.
