Earwig Music artist: Albert Bashor - Cotton Field Of Dreams- New Release Review

Just got a copy of Cotton Field of Dreams, the new release by Albert Bashor. The recording contains 14 original tracks and features a number of stars including Pat Travers, Bill Payne and Ron Holloway. The opening track, Jukin' Down On Johnson Street has a Latin feel but turns to a full swing on the chorus. The track gives you a genuine feel of the trip and has cool slide work of a pro. Rockin' Red Rooster is modeled after an Elmore James track and gets groovin' pretty fast.Bill Payne can be heard driving the piano throughout the song. Poodle Ribs is a funky rocker and Ron Holloway screamin' away on his sax is a nice contrast to Payne on piano. Put Me On Like You Do is a slower blues track with an acoustic feel with dobro and harp. So Blue has more of a pop blues construction to it and would be my choice for airplay. Holloway takes a real nice sax solo in this track and Shady Jones also guest vocals on this track which provides a nice compliment to the overall flavor. Cotton Field Of Dreams is an interesting Peter Green like song with airy guitars, vocals, horns and texture. One of my favorite tracks on the recording. Fetch Me gets back into the funky rhythm and finds Bashor bouncing solos with Pat Travers. No Place Like Home gets that warm country blues sound with brushed on the drums, dobro and organ. The recording finishes up with Lucky Man, a simple ballad with full band filler. Overall this is a real cool cd with a little bit of everything thrown in creating a bluesy, poppy recording with a lot of talented musicians.
