A superb second album arrives from our '02 Talent Search and Maple Blues Awards New Talent winners. Still very much rooted in the Chicago blues tradition, this CD features a generous program of originals by vocalist/harpman Rotundo. The sterling lead/rhythm guitar work is by regular Pete Schmidt and/or by Enrico Crivellaro from the Royal Crown Revue and James "Icepick" Harman's band and whose new Electro-Fi solo CD will be reviewed in the next column. Also returning is bassist/co-producer Shane Scott and pianist extraordinaire Julian Fauth. The new drummer is Greg Cooper.

Rotundo has a gift for writing memorable songs in a tradition that is woefully short of them now, with too many sounding hackneyed or trite. Just listen to "Stranger" or "Worries & Trouble" or "Sellout Or Starve" as examples. "Drinking Overtime" is another example of a new twist on a topic with a long history. As a band of relatively young players, they have completely absorbed the sound of this tradition, knowing when and when not to play. Rotundo's vocals sound especially good, up-front and well recorded, the only quibble being the over-reliance on the Omar & the Howlers growl on "Sellout or Starve". Crivellaro's two features are "Let's have a Good Time" & "The Sway" both co-written with Rotundo and showing those West Coast techniques to excellent advantage. A special highlight is Rotundo's tribute to Muddy Waters with "I Got To Move" with Jack de Keyzer on electric slide and Tony Ajo on drums, a great choice as an album closer. "Blues Ignited" is a fine new harp instrumental. (canadianmusiconly.blogspot.com)
