Curtis Salgado: Coffeeshop Conversations #59 on his brand new album

By TOM D'ANTONI // Most of the things you want to know about his new album and a sneak peek at a couple of tunes..

Welcome back to World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan in Portland for another OMN Coffeeshop Conversation. We took a couple weeks off while I had some R&R. I’m OMN’s Tom D’Antoni.

I’ve been looking forward to sitting down and talking with Curtis Salgado around the time his new album The Beautiful Lowdown is coming out. It’s always fun to talk with Curtis, he’s a brilliant guy, a great singer, and the world has been waiting for his follow up to Soul Shot his last album.

He and I have very similar taste when it comes to music, he returned an Otis Blackwell LP that I had loaned him about three years ago. He could have kept it longer,I knew it was I good hands.

I had just handed him the new album, which he had never seen in it;and we just jumped on in from there.

Watch "I'm Not Made That Way" from the album.

Order it online now. Pre-order before the Friday, April 8 release date and the first 200 will receive an autographed copy.

Curtis will appear on KINK-FM's Skype Live Studio Session on Wednesday, April 27 and on KATU-TV's AM Northwest on Thursday, April 28.
