When It Comes To The Blues - J C Crossfire - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, When It Comes To The Blues by J C Crossfire. Opening with the title track, When It Comes To The Blues, a slinky blues track with JC leading the way on vocal and guitar. Tony Calabria sets a solid bass line and vocals carry the weight. Niles Blaize adds sympathetic harmonica parts and JC does put up a pretty nice guitar solo. On Deliza (pronounced Delecia) Bernie Rose adds some pretty sweet key parts and again JC rips a nice solo on guitar. Grand Ole Girl has an old school rock beat with a nice back beat. Again the track opens up for some pretty tasty guitar work and has nice filler harp work as well. Guido Marciano really plays a crisp drum part on this track. Blues Blues Blues is a cool shuffle track and may be the most balanced track on the release with nice key changes during the guitar solo. Tell Me Why is a nice slow blues ballad showcasing primarily JC on vocals but concluding with a really tasty guitar solo. One More Time is an upbeat rock track lead by the bright piano work of Rose. Next up is my favorite track on the release, Chosen One, a funky blues rocker with a Lynyrd Skynyrd style but with building around the basic building blocks with totally new trim. Really pretty cool. Calabria sets a really nice bass lead and JC shines on vocal and guitar, pushed along by Marciano and Rose. I Wonder, a slow bluesy ballad, closes the release.
