iTunes Review

When NRBQ released Dummy in 2004, the group decided afterwards to disband with their leader Terry Adams soldiering on with the Terry Adams Rock & Roll Quartet. For Keep This Love Goin’, Adams has decided to rename his group, imagine this, NRBQ. Q drummer Tom Ardolino plays on two tracks, but otherwise it’s Conrad Choucroun, Pete Donnelly and Scott Ligon forming the rest of the group. While it may make the claims of this being a new NRBQ album dubious, it doesn’t stop the music from being just as great. NRBQ fans will surely enjoy it. The album runs the same stylistic gamut as the best NRBQ albums and the playing is loose and tight in that NRBQ way. “Let Go” has a ‘50s pop bounce. “Gone With the Wind” floats along with a light gait and a pure pop melody. “Sweet and Petite” rolls over to R&B while “Red’s Piano” boogies with a blues streak. “My Life With You” is an expert case of harmony with Adams’ piano supporting a jazzy mood. The title track is an earnest pop number in the best NRBQ tradition. No matter what you call it, it’s NRBQ in spirit.

The New New Rhythm and Blues Quartet

After a seven-year hiatus that included health issues for Terry Adams, side projects for Joey Spampinato and the virtual retirement of Tom Ardolino, NRBQ has reformed and renewed. Spampinato joined up full time with his brother in the Spampinato Brothers, and Ardolino released himself from the rigors of touring, leaving Adams to rebuild the band with new partners. Initially billed under their leader’s name, the new quartet cut its teeth in gigs and the studio before Adams felt they captured grooves worthy of the name “NRBQ.” Adams’ new bandmates are guitarist Scott Ligon, bassist Pete Donnely and drummer Conrad Choucroun. Ligon and Donnely also add vocals and songwriting, making this a group, rather than a showcase for Adams.

Happily, the new quartet has captured the eclectic mix that made the original band so intoxicating. Leading off the album is Adams’ tribute to New Orleans legend Boozoo Chavis and his wife Leona, with Choucroun propelling the song with a terrific second line rhythm. Just as this parade passes by the band turns to the pure pop of “Keep This Love Goin’” and “Here I Am,” offering up shades of the Raspberries, Beach Boys and Gary Lewis. There’s rockabilly rhythm guitar and a touch of Carl Perkins’ lead style on “I’m Satisfied,” and the slap-rhythm of “Sweet and Petite” sounds like country came down the mountain to wax some rock ‘n’ roll.

Less successful are the supper-club tunes “Gone with the Wind” and “My Life with You,” neither of which gets the polished crooning they deserve. Still, Adams jazzy piano and a trumpet/trombone solo on the latter are superb, and you have to appreciate the band’s reach. The album closes with Piano Red’s “Red’s Piano,” a tune taught to Adams by Red himself, and fleshed out here by Adams’ piano and Ligon’s guitar. Fans looking for the sound of Adams, Spampinato, Anderson and Ardolino won’t find it here, but they will find the spontaneity, humor, breadth and musical know-how that earned NRBQ the label “best bar band in the world.” [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]

I love NRBQ and Terry Adams......(he's a national treasure)........and some of the songs on this album are nice, but the new vocalists don't hold a candle to Joey Spampinato.....(sorry guys)

Often called "the world's greatest bar band," NRBQ are that rare group that's eclectic, stylistically innovative, and creatively ambitious while also sounding thoroughly unpretentious and accessible. At its best, NRBQ's music casually mixes up barrelhouse R&B, British Invasion pop, fourth-gear rockabilly, exploratory free jazz, and dozens of other flavors while giving it all a stomp-down rhythm that makes fans want to dance and expressing a sense of joy and easy good humor that comes straight from...
