EDITORS’ NOTES

Though born in Anniston, Ala., Brian “Voo” Davis knew Chicago was an inevitable influence if he wanted to call himself a bluesman. So with skilled Chicagoans backing him, he headed down to two top-drawer Louisiana studios to record a no-nonsense album of deep, dark blues. As long as the meters were in the red, they knew they were doing something right. Here, Davis’ sound is dependent on the musicians in the room capturing a vibe that can’t be put into words or into the cold math of modern music-making. The nasty flash of harmonica and electric guitar on “Whisper” means something beyond the notes, and the slow nightclub piano blues of “Phantom Woman” proves again that there’s always something new to be heard in the same old chords. “Voo” Davis is one of those rarities who takes his music to the same ol’ hangouts but finds something new and revelatory in the experience.
