Third Street Cigar Records artist: Chris Shutters with special guest Jimmy Burns - Good Gone Bad - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Good Gone Bad, by Chris Shutters with special guest Jimmy Burns and it's a fun packed blues rocker. Opening with driving rocker and title track, Good Gone Bad, featuring Chris Shutters and Jimmy Burns on vocal and guitar, joined by Byron Harris Jr. on bass and drums, Rick Warner on piano, and Tony Shutters on harmonica. Super opener. Adding Art Bishop on sax, this band gets funky on Can't Play The Blues Like B.B. Chris takes the lead on vocal and guitar and this track has just that perfect edge with the horn reinforcement sounding quite like Sly or Clinton. On boogie, Unwind, Frank May's bass line defines the rhythm and a more melodic approach makes this a cool radio track with a clean, meaty sax solo by Bishop. Straight up rocker, Living In A Dream, has a super pace and with it's quiet bridge and a hard working bass line by Harris Jr. the track gets a real edgy rock style guitar solo by Shutters and Burns. Shuffle track, Keep You Satisfied is straight up blues but with an accelerated pace. Organ work by Mike Huffman and a bluesy solos by Burns and Shutters give this track real traction. Wrapping the release is springy shuffle, The Book Of Life, with clever rhythm patterns by Harris Jr. on drums and melodic vocals by Shutters. A cool closer for an interesting release.
