Back To The Road - Sista Jean & C.B.- New Release Review

I've been listening to the new Sista Jean & C.B. release entitled Back To The Root. This is a easy going bluesy recording with 10 original tracks by Carlyle Barriteau (C.B) on guitars and percussion and "Sista" Jean McClain on vocals. Backing the band is Troy Dexter who adds some dobro as well as Keys and David Vidal who plays harmonica and pedal steel. Don't Want What U Got is a terrific song. It's one that will stick to your ribs. Jean's vocals are clear and strong and the guitar is clean and well articulated. Love Is Callin is another stand out track with a duet between Jean and the acoustic guitar with a clean dobro solo. Free My Heart is another track with a beautiful melody. Jean amd C.B. demonstrate that you really don't need an entourage to make great music. U Best Know is an uptempo track with harmonica and pedal steel featured along with Jeans vocals. It will get your head bobbin in time. Perfect Day For A Rescue is a jazzy number and i think it will appeal to most listeners. You Can Dance completes the set and Jean leads the way ... this could break loose into a horn dynamo. The duo keeps the song contained but there are some tasty solo guitar riffs. Sista Jean and C.B. have put out a light, airy blues oriented cd that should appeal to a broad audience.
