Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado: Come On In Review

To understand Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado’s Come On In, their 10th album, you just need to listen “Love So Fine.” The riff borrows heavily from Bachman–Turner Overdrive’s “Taking Care of Business” but in Risager’s hands, or throat, to be more precise, it’s something different. Risager’s voice is deep and rich, sort of like ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons with the edges smoothed out with some Van Morrison touches. Risager’s band, or orchestra, as he classily calls them, power the tune behind him, the horns giving the rock track an uptown blues grandeur. It perfectly captures everything good and interesting about the album.

Albert Cummings: Believe Review

This latest album by Massachusetts singer and guitarist Albert Cummings was recorded in Muscle Shoals, with the legendary Jim Gaines in the producer’s chair, so there’s little surprise that when it kicks off with a horn-laden cover of the Sam and Dave hit “Hold On (I’m Coming)” the resulting sound is big and rich and soulful, and Cummings does justice to the Sixties soul men in the vocal stakes. It’s the first of several enjoyable songs of a soul-blues bent on Believe, but at the same time I’d venture to say it’s indicative of how the album sometimes plays it safe.
