Quintus McCormick - Still Called the Blues (Delmark, 1012)

Singer and guitarist McCormick plays a grab bag mix of soul funk, R and B and rock music. McCormick has a deep and soulful voice and plays some fine guitar on a selection of lovelorn tales and funky filagrees. Some of the soulful work recalls the classic R and B and soul of the 1970's but McCormick keeps the music varied and thoughtfully done.
