Album Review

Bluesman Linsey Alexander made the leap to Delmark Records for 2012's Been There Done That. It was a natural home for the Chicago-born guitarist, so it's not surprising everybody was ready for a second bite at the apple, one that comes in the form of 2014's Come Back Baby. Working with a combo that contains guitarist Breezy Rodio, keyboardist Roosevelt Purifoy, bassist Greg McDaniel, and drummer Pooky Styx — the anchor that's occasionally augmented by a horn section and, on three cuts, harpist Billy Branch — Alexander achieves a nice balance between classic Windy City grinds and fresher, funkier workouts.

He may be "Too Old to Be a New Fool," as he sings one of his slow 12-bar originals, but he hardly seems spent here.
