There’s a saying that the blues had a baby and they called it rock n’ roll. If you play rock n’ roll, sooner or later you play a lot of blues, and if you play a lot of blues, sooner or later you explore the other side of the family, which is jazz. These songs all fall in that broad pocket where jazz and blues meet country and rock and roll, with an emphasis on the jazzier side of the ledger.
Several of the tunes were written with a woman’s perspective and vocal in mind – Don’t Need You To Love Me This Way, Happy Enough and Indigo Blue. Debbie Darling does a swell job here on Happy Enough.
