Patty Reese – Let In The Sun
Format: CD / Label: Azalea City Recordings
Releasedatum: 27 januari 2017
Tekst: Iain Patience
Patty Reese is a lady with purpose. A popular multiple award-winner in her native USA, ‘Let In The Sun’ is her fourth release and one that growls and roars pretty much from start to finish. Reese herself cites influences as profound and diverse as Steve Earle, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. In the recent past she has shared the bill with US stalwarts such as blueslady Beth Hart, Tab Benoit, New Orleans’ ever-popular, gruff old Dr John and Delbert McClinton. And her confident, poised self-assurance features clearly here.
Reese shows and hi-lights her own writing abilities here with almost all of the tracks included being hi-energy, rocking-blues numbers that vary in pitch and pace but never deviate from an underlying grip, grasp and blues-based groove.
Initially released at the beginning of this year, ‘Let In The Sun’ seldom fails to chime and shine, bringing fine musicianship, at times near-stellar song-writing abilities and searing vocals to the table. This is work that can be steamy and sultry one moment, followed by dynamic and deep the next, rockin’ blues crossed with searching, powerful soul and a pinch of touching, smoothly delivered balladry. Reese is an artist who has purpose, poise, power and quality on the basis of this sterling offering.
