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!

Lauren Anderson - Won't Stay Down - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Won't Stay Down, from Lauren Anderson and I like it. Opening Anderson shows her rich vocal skill immediately on pop track, Honey, Call Me Baby, a soulful track with a nice melody and Pretenders attitude. I particularly like the warm rhythm guitar tone and carefree soloing of of Jimi Greene, with Hutch on bass, William Adkins on keys and John Rodrigue on drums. Ballad, Too Little Too Late has pure radio appeal with nicely blended vocals with Meg Williams and Jenny Teator and the solid organ work of Adkins. Powerful. Title track, Won't Stay Down, is another solid track with just the right swagger and some of my favorite vocals on the release and a great bass line by Hutch. Cake has a cool Latin beat with super percussion and a really nice trumpet solo by Emmanuel Echem and Kiran Gupta. Hutch gets a quick solo that leads into a crisp solo by Greene but it's Anderson who stars in this show. Very nice. Wrapping the release is straight up rocker, Wild & Free with it's John Mellencamp form. Greene lays out a nice melodic solo followed by Adkins and Hutch and Rodrique drive the train with another solid vocal entry by Anderson. Cool closer.
