Blackburn Brothers (from the album SoulFunkin’ Blues available on ) (by Bryant Liggett)
On their latest in SoulFunkn’BLUES, the Canada based and Juno award winning Blackburn Brothers deliver a hearty dose of workingman’s Blues. This is clock in and clock out, meat and potato Blues; no fluff, no frill, just straight-ahead Funk and Blues-based grooves, void of filler. What you hear is what you get, a no waste offering, where both the music and message is quite solid.
There’s the laid back into and slow burning of “Bobby’s Blues” to the uber-Funky “She’s a Heartbreaker” complete with its subtle but still screaming guitar fills. That guitar continues while being backed by horns in “Let the Devil Play” and they throw out some boogie in “Won’t You Let Me Go”. This is as much of a history lesson as it is dose of music, as they toss around some Funk via an important touch of history on “Sister Rosa”, honoring Rosa Parks, and keep the inspiration rolling on “Freedom Train.”
SoulFunkn’BLUES closes with a slow-ballad, one for holding another close on the dance-floor in “I Don’t Ever Want to Be Alone”. The musical package is plump. The band is stacked from the punchy horns to the perfectly placed guitar and keys, it’s a Funky Blues package that’s a modern-day nod, and street-smart offering, to the legacy of Blues along with a necessary lesson in civil rights history.
