Mississippi Heat
Warning Shot

Delmark DE 839

 

Though this is Pierre Lacocque's band, and he is the principal songwriter and stage front with his harmonica, there is an ensemble feel to all of Mississippi Heat albums. When you listen to this superb CD, you're not just hearing a band. You're hearing a family, one with a deep love, understanding, and respect for each other. That special guest Sax Gordon is so seamlessly incorporated into their signature sound speaks volumes. Fourteen of the sixteen songs here are new originals. Inetta Visor sings most of the songs while guitarist Michael Dotson sings on his three originals and drummer Kenny Smith sings one of his own. From straight-ahead Chicago blues, boogie and swing to Latin beat, Caribbean and funk Warning Shot is a remarkable musical achievement!

Linsey Alexander
Come Back Baby

Delmark DE 838

Both critically acclaimed and the best-selling newly recorded album for Delmark in recent times, 2012's Been There Done That put Linsey Alexander in the blues spotlight. "Throughout Alexander sings with a conviction and verve that few can equal. This should be his break-out recording." Gary von Tersch, Big City Rhythm & Blues Similar to the first album, Come Back Baby is full of delightful new originals including "Little Bit of Soap", "Booty Call", "Call My Wife", "Things Done Changed", "Too Old To Be A New Fool" and the title track. Once again Linsey led his nine-piece band live in the studio with special guest Billy Branch on harmonica.

Dave Specter
Message In Blue

Delmark DE 836

Dave Specter's 10th album, Message in Blue, is a soulful and compelling blend of Specter's original instrumentals along with powerful blues/R&B vocals. Soul legend Otis Clay makes his Delmark debut as special guest on three songs including a re-make of the classic "Got To Find A Way" with Willie Henderson and the Chicago Horns, The Falcons' "I Found A Love" (complete with Specter nod to Robert Ward playing through a Magnatone amplifier) and a tribute to the late Bobby "Blue" Bland, "This Time I'm Gone For Good". Brother John Kattke is on keyboards and vocals while harp ace Bob Corritore guests on two Specter originals. From tough and tone-full Chicago blues guitar to soul-jazz grooves and funky R&B, Message in Blue is sure to satisfy! "One of the few top-tier guitarists." - Down Beat

Steve Freund / Gloria Hardiman Set Me Free
Delmark DE 837

Born and raised in Brooklyn, blues guitarist Steve Freund was reborn a Chicagoan when he relocated in 1976.  The list of people he's played with reads like a Who's Who of Chicago blues legends including Sunnyland Slim, Luther Allison, Lonnie Brooks, Otis Rush, Koko Taylor, Johnny Littlejohn and Big Walter Horton. Originally issued on the Razor label this 1983 album was Steve's debut as leader. It teams him up with vocalist Gloria Hardiman whose voice was one of the richest, toughest blues voices on the Chicago scene at that time...a voice that'll steal your soul and take it right up to heaven. Contains four bonus tracks including the previously unissued "Homework" and "Kiddio" and two by Ken Saydak, keyboardist for the whole album, from a rare '83 Razor single.
