Artist: Band: 56 Hope Road CD Review:
There is a deep layer upon layer talent at work here. It is the intelligence and groove of your favorite jam band without 17 minute long solos. It is the Spin Doctors without the annoying lead singer. Its smoky sultry soulful funky bluesy fun.
Did I mention the great harmonies and horns? They also have a strong bunch of songwriters in Hamilton, Goveia, Sanders, Carter and Bolser. There are no duds here. Anne Hamilton Katzfey positively sizzles with her bluesy vocals and the percussionists Katzfey and Fundis are always right on time.
"Drop It All" is a CD full of great infectious songs played by experts having a great time. This is a perfect party record full of energy and talent.
