Eric Bibb – Blues People (2014)
mp3 320 kbps | 135 MB | UL |
Recognizing the power of the blues community and its historical part in helping to document the abuses and instigate change, Bibb brought many of his esteemed colleagues on board to demonstrate strength that comes from these numbers: from luminaries like Taj Mahal and The Blind Boys of Alabama to newer stars like Ruthie Foster and Popa Chubby all figure into Bibb’s grand vision of making this music a conduit for positive progress, and they do it by being completely themselves.
But Blues People avoids coming across as the tiresome “and friends” album by also being one of Bibb’s most coherent efforts to date; his unforced mix of country blues, folk, gospel and soul is all held tightly together by his vision and even where Scott applies modern touches, it’s hard to miss the connection between these music styles and their heritage of being used to carry larger messages for humanity, not just about personal relationships.
