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!

Sidney Jacobs - If I Were Your Woman - New Release Review


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, If I Were Your Woman, from Sidney Jacobs, and it's a cool mix or jazz, soul and R&B. Opening with breezy, We All... / On A Clear Day, Sidney Jacobs on keys and lead vocals shows vocal flexibility with warm backing by Munyungo Jackson on percussion, Josh Jackson on sax and flute, Chris Lawrence on trumpet, Josh Nelson on piano, Greg Poree on acoustic guitar, Nolan Shaheed on trumpet and flugel horn, Ricky Woodard on trumpet and some really nice trombone by Joakim Toftgaard. Weave This Tale really moves with scat vocals by Jacobs which work nicely with his strong piano playing and warm horn support. Very nice. A nice mix of jazz and R&B transforms Bernstein's I Feel Pretty into a contemporary radio track. I really like Jacobs' vocal interpretation of this track and this track swings. Title track and soul classic, If I Were Your Woman, gets a really nice work over with excellent vocals over a piano / drums focus and with really nice trumpet soloing by Lawrence. Wrapping the release is Conversations With Mom, a cool vocal assemblage and tape work with the minimal of drum rhythms as accents. Very cool closer.
