Dana Fuchs, the Force of Nature

American female Blues singer with a raw sexuality, ideally with unruly hair and, oh yes, a voice that erupts like the entire field of the Daytona 500 blowing past and nobody’s having engine trouble.

Travis Colby Band's "Quick Fix" Is The Right Stuff

Quick Fix is a strong outing, especially as a debut album. This album features funky blues, Memphis style soul blues (with a pulse!), swing blues, piano boogie, and superior ensemble style playing. Production values are very good, and the sound quality is good as well. A strong album overall, there are several standout cuts here.

Boz Scaggs' "Memphis" Has Soul

This is very much an album of atmosphere and mood. It is textured, but also ballsy in a quiet, understated way. Sublime. The players sound great, and Scaggs is smoother than ever.
The Soul of John Black-Good Thang

How Did We Miss This? It's A "Good Thang"

This is blues with a pulse! There are several stellar tracks here. "Digital Blues" will remind you of 70's soul with its great beat and crisp rhythm guitar (which is a welcome constant throughout the entire album). Bingham slides a nice little bluesy solo in and the keyboarding throughout is a nice touch.
