TINSLEY ELLIS - Midnight Blue

Kategorie: CD-Reviews | Genre: Blues/Bluesrock | Heft: Jahrgang 2014, eclipsed Nr. 159 / 4-2014 | VÖ-Jahr: 2014 | Wertung: 8/10 | Label: Heartfixer | Autor: AT

On his current disc, Tinsley Ellis pulls out all the stops of his ability. Acoustic blues ("If The River Keeps Rising"), power blues ("Mouth Turn Dry"), a humorous country rocker ("It's Not Funny"), midtempo shuffle with imaginative breaks ("The Only Thing") and a slow, heavy blues rocker put the solos, the bearish vocals and above all Ellis' newly found self-confidence regarding his songwriting in the foreground. One of his best albums.
