Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2014-10-06Markey Blue is a Blues, Soul & Rhythm/Blues outfit from Nashville Tennessee that is headed by vocalist Jeanette Markey and guitarist & producer Ric Latina. The 12 tracks on this disc are all originals, even though the title track sounds eerily close to the U2/BB King collaboration of "When Love Comes to Town". Most of this disc has a 1970's Stax Records soul flavor, but just like bands like Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings their sound resonates with such warmth & passion that it is exciting and relevant in 2014. In addition to Markey's passionate & soulful vocals & the hot guitar riffs from Ric Latina, I was captivated by the big horn section & Hammond B3 organ sounds throughout Hey Hey. If you are searching for some hot new southern soul & blues, this is definitely the disc for you. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
