DEANNA BOGART-“CHOPS THAT MESMERIZE’ CD REIVEW jUST A WISH AWAY-JOHN EMMS

d bogart 1

DEANNA BOGART’S new album  Just A Wish Away has chops that simply mesmerize.

But as many folks already know, this is not a straight, or even blues blend album.

Bogart tries on a lot of genre hats. The excellent Maybe I Won’t is an example of this.

A great song, influenced by a soul/blues mix

Straight out of the box, the galloping If It’s Gonna Be Like This mixes country and slide induced rock n’ roll, Find Me Good Bayou brings on the “answering”  Bonerama Horns, while Back and Forth Kid simply is one of the most intimate songs I have heard in 2014.

A gorgeous ballad it is breathtaking in it’s scope lyrically and dynamically

Elsewhere the covers,  a funky version of Sly Stone’s Hot Fun In the Summertime, and a jazzy take on SRV’S Tightrope has a killer piano solo but does not fire you up like the original.

Collarbone an instrumental shows off a superb tenor sax solo from Bogart, and Conversing With Lincoln with it’s  Paul Simon”Graceland” hook are examples of how this is just straight up great playing by the whole band.

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist, online radio host and vocalist/guitarist/songwriter with Canadian Blues ‘rockers THE SHAFTMEN    https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/the-worlds-gone-crazy/id673101570
