I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, With A Little Help From Her Friends, from Teresa James and it's quite good. Everybody knows the Beatles songbook and many of their tracks have been covered but James has really done a nice job in reinterpreting this list of top tracks. Opening with Ticket To Ride, Teresa James shows all of the style that she's known for and with a Texas saunter and with a strong bottom by Terry Wilson on bass and Richard Millsap on drums, super keys by Kevin McKendree and excellent guitar riffs by Wilson. Don't Let Me Down was an excellent choice for this set. James' voice is made for it and McKendree on piano and organ really works nicely with Wilson on slide. Excellent. Oh Darlin' sets itself nicely as a blues ballad and pairing James' vocals with Yates McKendree on lead guitar really is stellar. Beautiful, You Won't See Me, is really an excellent choice with soulful vocals by James and just the right blend of keys and guitar, making this another standout track of all the outstanding tracks. McKendree takes a real nice key solo keeping this track mellow. Wrapping the release is Think For Yourself with a swaying bluesy feel. James' vocals are blended into a harmony really is sweet and has just the right feel. This is a strong closer for a thoroughly enjoyable release.
