Robert Hill & Joanne Lediger - Revelation - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Revelation, from Robert Hill & Joanne Lediger and it's a high energy take original blues. Opening with  Willie Johnson's, John The Revelator, Joanne Lediger on lead vocal paired with her partner, Robert Hill make a great team. With his knowledge of blues forms on guitar and harmonica and her soulful vocal style, this track is a solid opener, backed by Paulina Hill on vocal, Frank Pagano on drums and Steve Gelfand on bass. "The Wire's" sultry theme song, Way Down In The Hole, penned by Tom Waits had a number of covers during it's 5 seasons, but this is another great cover and certainly not less than capable of one of the best I've heard. With it's Rhumba rhythm and great guitar work by Hill, a prominent bass line by Gelfand and Lediger joined on vocal by Hill's daughter, Paulina, this track is super. Another Blind Willie track, Nobody's Fault But Mine gets a gospel/soul rework and Lediger's vocal really shines over handclaps and perfect slide by Hill. Very cool. Closing the release is Fred McDowell's, Jesus Is On The Mainline, featuring Robert Hill on lead vocal with Paulina and Lediger. This is a really cool track certainly influenced by Ry Cooder with terrific finger work and slide making it my favorite as well as an excellent closer.
