Stacy Jones Band: Live and Untapped Review

The Stacy Jones Band is comprised of great blues musicians. Stacy Jones is multitalented on vocals, harmonica, keys, and acoustic guitar, Jeff Menteer on vocals and electric guitar, Rick J Bowen on drums and vocals, and Tom Jones on bass. The live album, Live and Untapped, is a wonderful collaboration with unique cover songs and originals.

They do a rocking version of BB King’s “You Upset Me Baby,” putting their own interesting spin on the tune with Stacy and Jeff singing the vocals together. Stacy shows her versatility as a singer in their cover of “Miss You” by the Rolling Stones.

“I Think I Feel Like Leavin’” is one of the best songs on the album. It’s up-tempo and everything from the bass line to guitar riffs and backup vocals are tight. “Waitin’ on Love” is another outstanding song on the album. The guitar riff is catchy and Stacy’s voice is simple yet soulful as ever on this track. The album ends on an uplifting note with a surprisingly different sound on “Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher.” It’s filled with acoustic guitar rhythms and electric guitar riffs as Stacy sings a chorus that would put anyone in a great mood and will leave the listener singing long after hearing the song.

This band has a lot of potential and is filled with excellent musicians. Live and Untapped is a true testament to this and the Stacy Jones Band is sure to have a lot of success with albums in the future!
