Rosie Flores from the album Simple Case of the Blues available on The Last Music Company (by Bryant Liggett)
Rosie Flores is a timeless treasure. A stomping, crooning, and shouting rockabilly queen that kills it on the guitar whether she is partnering with great players in Roots or Indie Rock as well as fronting her own band. Simple Case of the Bluesis a collection of old Blues and slinky lounge music, and it may be the hippest record of 2019. Cuts like “I Want to Do More” and “Till the Well Runs Dry” play like old-school Jump Jazz as Rosie Flores sings over a hopping horn-section, while “Love Don’t Love Nobody” and “Simple Case of the Blues” scream The Blues and showcase her guitar playing.
It is the slower cuts on Simple Case of the Blues, “Mercy Fell Like Rain”, “If There Was a Way”, and “Enemy Hands”, that find Rosie Flores playing the role of a sultry lounge lady; steamy and possibly risqué, the tracks are beautiful ballads that fit the old-school vibe of the album. Rosie Flores hasn’t forgotten how to rock and “Teenage Rampage” is a swinging instrumental with an extra-order of great guitar work that makes the whole melody swing. Rosie closes the album with “If You Need Me,” a soulful Rhythm and Blues exiter. She sings with a sense of urgency making the whole story ache within her delivery, with the spoken word segment revealing desperation as another layer of emotion. It is a closer that kills as it bids Simple Case of the Bluesgoodbye. (by Bryant Liggett)
