Blue Palace Records artist: Jan James - Time Bomb - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Time Bomb, from Jan James and it's a healthy dose of soulful R&B. Opening with Swingin' In The Sweet Sunshine, Jan James on lead vocal has a great start for her 12th album. With Craig Calvert on guitar and bass, Bob Long on keys, and Jake Loomis on drums, warm backing vocals by Cheryl Wilson, and Joyce Faison, and with strong sax work by Brian Gephart on sax this is a super opener. Cool, R&B number, Sometimes Love's Like That, has a real nice melody and Calvert's guitar work, balanced with Gephart's sax work makes this a strong radio contender. My favorite track on the release is Love Is The Answer with strong vocals by James and caressing guitar lead by Calvert creating just the right pocket for James, Wilson and Faison. Wrapping the release is Always The Blues, with it's blues rock feel. Calvert kicks in the wah wah pedal on his lead work and James' bluesy lead work really works nicely over the firm bass work of Calvert. Nice closer for a solid release.
