Homesick for the Road
Tab Benoit, Debbie Davies, and Kenny Neal

By Tom Baeur

This summer, film director Martin Scorsese presented a 7-night musical journey. The blues! How does it continue on for so many years? How to "pass the torch" and keep the blues alive..

These three have accepted the challenge put together a great cd. They sound as if they have been together since they were in grade school.

Kenny Neals vocals sound like he has years of experience, delivering that great warm tones that makes you feel like you are in the heart of the blues delta. His guitar work is excellent. He can take you from the soft, articulate leads to powerful attacks and bends that stir the soul.

Debbie Davies puts together a tremendous slow, acoustic balled, "So Cold"
Starts out vocals, and acoustic, then breaks into the great Chicago style blues with big bass, drums, and an electric guitar. Masterfully engineered, modern sound.

Tab Benoit performs, "Put a spell on you". This song suites his style very well. A very soulful blues number. The arrangement allows him plenty of room to improvise, with the keyboards laying down the rhythm. His leads are fierce, and powerful.

The three of them take turns with the vocal tracks. They share the lead and rhythm guitar parts nicely. This cd has it all from rock you, to slow soulful 12 bar blues. Wonderful tones from the strat guitars and excellent studio work make this a great CD to experience.
