Delta Groove Music artist: Terry Hanck Band - Gotta Bring It On Home To You - New Release review

I just received the newest release (April 15, 2014), Gotta Bring It On Home To You, from Terry Hanck Band and it's a party. Opening with Elvin Bishops Right Now Is The Hour, featuring Hanck on lead vocal and hot sax. This is a great track with a lot of punch from Bob Welsh on piano and Johnny Cat Soubrand on guitar. Next up is Maxwell Davis' Whole Lotta Lovin', and Hanck really reinforces that he isn't just a sax player with fine vocals. Soubrand again steps up with some hot guitar riffs but this track from the day it was written is all about the sax. Butch Cousins really creates a hot swing on drums and Tim Wagar keeps it steady on bass. Pins and Needles is a straight up R&B style rocker with Kid Andersen laying down some chicken pickin on guitar. Doug James adds to the sax heat on this track. Peace Of Mind is a smokey stylized blues number with welsh and Soubrand setting the pace, Soubrand really turning on the heat on this particular number with a crisp solo. Hanck of course won't let you down and steps up with excellent phrasing of his own on sax. Excellent! T's Groove is a rolling boogie instrumental allowing Jim Pugh (organ), Kid Andersen (guitar) and of course himself shine in the spotlight for another excellent romp. My Last Teardrop has a strong New Orleans R&B feel. Hanck really handles the vocal lead well and James again steps up to support the band with nice sax work. Excellent sax phrasing is the name of the game and this track has it. The track breaks loose into a galloping boogie letting Soubrand loose for a quick rip and Hanck steps it up for super sax to wrap the track. Walt Aldridge's There's No Getting Over Me is up next with a real pop feel. Hanck takes center stage for a clean sax solo and his vocal work is supported by nicely orchestrated organ work by Kid Andersen, clavinet work from Lorenzo Farrell and backing vocals from Lisa Leu Andersen. Tommy Ridgley's Jam Up is a great New Orleans instrumental rocker with racing sax work from Hanck and James. Bob Welsh is strong on keys and Soubrand hits it square on guitar. Hot track! Title track, Gotta Bring It On Home To You has a firm R&B lope and Hanck shares vocals with Debbie Davies. Soubrand, Andersen and Davies all contribute nice guitar solos on this track. Wrapping the release is Don Robey's One Horse Town, a fast paced R&B style track with nice guitar riffs from Soubrand and full horn work from James and Hanck. This is actually a real happy release and one that should receive broad attention.
