Somewhat in the manner of Bonnie Raitt, the Detroit-born singer/pianist Deanna Bogart is a traditionalist unafraid to venture across a wide spectrum of American musical idioms, and this album finds her steadily expanding her horizons in tandem with seasoned players guitarist Dan Leonard, bassist Scott Ambush and drummer Mike Aubin. With equal finesse, this fine combo delves into celebratory gospel (“Heart ‘N Soul”), plaintive country-rock (“Avery’s Town”), sleek L.A.-style fusion (“Unkl Funkl”) and summery ‘70s soul (“Love and Attention,” featuring bluesman Tommy Castro). Especially well done is the Allman Brothers-esque jazz-rock number “Almonjoi” and a searing yet sensitive version of Stevie Wonder’s “’Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers.” The jagged, probing “Thrash Boogie 2010” tosses in an avant-garde element. On “Eleventh Hour Blues” and a tender cover of John Hiatt’s “Have a Little Faith,” Bogart reasserts her blues credentials with smoldering vocal performances. The band never loses the emotional thread linking these tunes.
Dan Leonard is my teacher and told me about this album today. These songs really show excellence in ability by every single artist involved. Great job guys, and see you next wednesday Dan.
Sensational new CD from Deanna Bogart!
Once again, Deanna Bogart hits it out of the park with her dynamic new CD, "11th Hour". The energy and vibe of this CD is completely irresistible! Listen to "Avery's Town"...what an incandescent song, it draws you in and grabs you in a way you don't expect. Deanna's cover of "Have A Little Faith" is resplendent and one can only imagine that John Hiatt would be thrilled and honored to hear her intoxicating interpretation of his gem. Not to be missed as well is "Love and Attention" which will make everyone who hears it want to head to the dance floor with their special someone. Every musician playing with Deanna on this CD is magnificent, Scott Ambush, Mike Aubin, Dan Leonard...what a gifted group of artists! And the appearances of Tommy Castro, Matt Wigler, and the Knight Brothers just add to the joy and fun of this extraordinary CD. Run, don't walk, get "11th Hour" today! Wait, actually, you don't even need to run...you can download it right now from iTunes like I did. Way to go, Deanna! Thanks for the music! "11th Hour" is outstanding! T.
This CD is incredible as is Deanne Bogart. The blend of jazz, blues, and boogie woogie piano keeps my feet tapping from beginning to end. This is a can't miss.
