Seesaw, a collaboration between guitar hero Joe Bonamassa and powerhouse vocalist Beth Hart, showcases Joe’s versatile style and takes a glimpse at his inner soul man. Taking the trumpet to center stage, Joe and Beth give a jazzy performance, with funky blues riffs and blaring horns to boot. Hart’s vocals recall an early Tina Turner, a powerful homage to the roots of soul. From hard rock to soul, Bonamassa has proven he can do it all. But his efforts on Seesaw could not be realized without the gritty howl of Beth Hart.

Down in Soho on a typical drizzly Sunday evening in central London, a few hundred hardened blues rock fans crammed into the basement of The Borderline club. They awaited the arrival of one of Britain’s premier talents, Joanne Shaw Taylor. In 2012, Taylor released her third studio album, Almost Always Never, and this gig would be filmed for a follow-up live DVD.

Under a Western Sky is an album that displays not only clear confidence and potential, but also a true understanding and embrace of the old Chicago and British blues genre topped off with a unique blend of classic Americana. Released in April 2013 by the Paris-based band, the 10-track album takes the listener to many places and shares a variety of stories, from songs about traveling and love, to a violent case of larceny. The album has a live quality to it, and every track seems to feed off its lighthearted imperfection; perhaps this quality is what makes the record so natural, raw, and totally blues-infused rock & roll.

Last year marked the re-entrance of the former Ty Curtis Band’s frontman, Ty Curtis (you guessed it), into the blues rock scene as a solo artist. As should be expected with any side or solo project, Ty Curtis’s departure from his former band is parallel with a departure from his prior sound. This record presents itself with a certain earnestness that won’t be easily found on his band’s previous three albums, digging to new emotional depths that are translated into music.

Get Back on the Highway has a homey feel to it. It’s an album that makes one feel a cozy sense of belonging. And even though it’s just an EP, it certainly packs a punch as well. There’s no filler here, just four solid tracks that fulfill. This is friendly music, and listening to it makes you feel like you’d be right at home hanging out with the members of the band.
