Kategorie: CD-Reviews | Genre: Blues/Bluesrock | Heft: Jahrgang 2014, eclipsed Nr. 161 / 6-2014 | VÖ-Jahr: 2014 | Wertung: 8/10 | Label: Blues Boulevard | Autor: AT

In addition to his part in Martin Scorsese's "Feel Like Going Home" and several albums and collaborations with Taj Mahal and Ali Farka Turé, Corey Harris has played numerous gigs. This has paid off audibly, because he now impresses with an inimitable presence. In addition, he knows how to put together an exciting program. Besides intensive solo songs in Delta Blues style ("Underground", "Devil Go My Woman", "Black Rag"), which make up a big part of his new album, he has recorded some songs with a band ("Fat Duck's Groove", "Crying Blues"), which stages his solo songs even better, in which he shines with excellent fingerpicking. A haunting album, which will be especially appreciated by traditionalists.
