Reseña de álbum

Eric Bibb resides right outside of the crossroads where blues, folk, and gospel meet. His songs are elevating but not preachy, gritty but not nasty. It's a congenial music, as if to say that it may be the blues but it doesn't have to be a bummer. And it's a moralistic music, but its meaningful message is never delivered in a saccharine manner. Slide guitars and harmonicas wail, choirs holler, horns blare, tambourines get shaken, steel guitars twang, strings soothe, Wurlitzers whirl, and Bibb, acoustic guitar in hand, keeps 'em all honest with his earthy, Everyman songs. Like Taj Mahal, who has guested on Bibb's recordings, Bibb is in love with the roots of Americana, but, again like Taj, there's nothing self-conscious or stylized about his approach. On the soul ballad "If Our Hearts Ain't in It," which features Bonnie Raitt on slide guitar, he castigates phony religiosity, but even then it's not a condemnation: "We can fall down on our knees, shout 'Hallelujah, my soul is saved!'/But if our hearts ain't in it, ain't nothin' much is gonna change." "Stayed on Freedom," just Bibb on vocal and acoustic with Grant Dermody blowing harp, is a traditional spiritual turned civil rights anthem that delivers the simplest truth in a simple package, and "Pockets" is a country blues love tune set to an easygoing shuffle. A particular highlight is the deep blues "Conversation," a duet with the vocalist Ruthie Foster. A slow builder, it begins sparsely but subtly intensifies as Dermody's harmonica and a trio of trombone, saxophone, and trumpet assert themselves into the tune. Best of all, perhaps, is the opener, "Spirit I Am," a rousing, thumping, oversized shout-out to all that is good and right in a world that, more and more, has us all wondering what's real and what isn't and where we all fit in.

Awesome!!!!

I first heard Eric Bibb from a Paste Magazine CD sampler and ever since then I've been hooked! If you are looking for something new to listen to or just want something great than this CD is for you.

NPR on Easter Day

I first heard this music this morning on NPR. It is a revelation. Not knowing a thing about this man as the interview skipped through various samples from the album, I could only think what an iconic voice and whay hadn't I heard him before? I listened hearing overtones of Bonnie Raitt and now I've downloaded it and find their beautiful collaboration here. What a beautiful Easter present. Buy this album - it's a classic. There is spectacular DNA (uncle John Lewis - MJQ) backing up this eloquent, authentic and very important musical voice.

WOW

I first heard this man's voice in Paris. I was at a Virgin Records store, and sampling music. Wow was all I said. I didn't have a pen and paper at the time, so I took a picture of the album so I could remember his name. He is.....great!!
