Roy Rogers & Shana Morrison – Everybody’s Angel

Here is a surprise pairing: Roy Rogers, one of the greatest slide guitarists in the world, John Lee Hooker producer and sometime band member, and Shana Morrison, Van Morrison’s daughter and new emerging songwriter talent. Together they have released an excellent album. Sassy-voiced Shana’s jazzy blues delivery and Roy’s country-edged vocals work warmly together – and those arrangement, Wow! The darkly laid-back opening track ‘Molly O & Dog Boy’ with it’s steel guitar touches and acoustic percussion leads you into an album which demonstrates the incredible versatility of Rogers’ guitar and confirm what many know – that Roy is a superb producer. Previous albums from Roy can flay you alive with their slide riffs. Here he is never bludgeoning, never subservient, just scarily perfect in his discretion and appropriateness. Tight musicianship: drums and percussion from Jimmy Sanchez, accordion and keyboards from Phil Aalberg, bass from Scoop McGuire, Dana Pandey’s tabla and Robert Powell’s pedal steel, underpin a great collection of songs and a must-have album. What can I say? It’s so good I bought it twice.- by NetRhythms, Amazon.com
