I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

JT Spangler - What's A Little Heartbreak - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, What's A Little Heartbreak, from JT Spangler. A clever R&B style pop release it has a full blown frontal attack at the airwaves. Opening with No, No , No, Spangler shows his ability to catch the groove and write a down right great track. All Alright is a straight up happy pop track with all of the characteristics that have made successful hit makers for years. Rendezvous has a sneaky rhythm pattern with calculated stops for dramatic highlight. Another track that is likely to see strong airplay, this is all about the melodic singing and slick production. What's A Little Heartbreak gets back to the R&B groove and if you like the pop side of R&B it's hard to find fault with this. Very smooth. Something About You finds Spangler digging a little deeper into soul , maintaining the fine polish of a radio track with subtle backing vocals and keys and staying back on any guitar work. Take My Time has a vague reflection of I Put A Spell On You but then takes the pop turn and continues with characteristic pop music effects. The release is completed with I Still Remember, a quiet ballad using primarily piano to accompany vocal melodies. This is a very straight forward pop release that should have very broad mass appeal.
