Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Glen David Andrews

Redemttion

2014-04-28

New Orleans born musician Glen David Andrews {Cousin to Trombone Shorty} lays down a CD of Blues, Jazz, Funk and soul that is guaranteed to raise the spirits. This CD was recorded at the Living Room, a converted church on the West Bank, in Algiers across the river from New Orleans. Glen David describes this is a record as a personal journey back from the living dead. The songs on this disc all have a spiritual feeling and like a blazing Sunday service in a Baptist Church you will finish this disc feeling redeemed from the sins you have committed. To assist in raising the spirits, Glen David brought along some of his friends including Galactic harpist Ben Ellman on the opening track "NY To Nola". Ivan Neville brought his Dumpsaphunk keyboard sounds to "Bad By Myself". Gospel superstar Mahalia Jackson brings the congregation to it's feet on the classic "Didn't It Rain". Anders Osborne, who may have some experience of chasing demons and coming back from the living dead adds his guitar to "Lower Power". If your spirits aren't lifted after listening to this disc, you better check your pulse. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
