TINSLEY ELLIS-TOUGH LOVE-“BLUE TONE FIX” CD REVIEW JOHN EMMS

Tinsley Ellis

Tinsley Ellis hits a home run with a slinky groove of minor key blues and soul on his latest album Tough Love.

Ellis’ superb guitar tone oozes out on Seven Years, jumps in your face on Midnight Ride and gets Albert King-esque on the superb Should Have I Lied.

I recently took this cd on a road trip and basically let it play.

I don’t do that often, but this cd demanded it.

Elsewhere, Ellis hits a Sonny Landreth groove on Hard Work and lets the horns loose on All In The Name Of Love.

Standout work from keyboard man Kevin McKendree and excellent vocal work by Ellis throughout.

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist read in over 100 countries.

John is also a songwriter/musician with his Canadian Blues/Roots band THE SHAFTMEN
