Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

GRANDPA ELLIOT

Sugar Sweet

2009-11-13

Grandpa Elliots cd “Sugar Sweet” produced by Playing For Change, which is based on the simple idea that the world can find peace through music. Mark Johnson, the founder said “Grandpa Elliott embodies everything the Playing For Change project is about,….Soul, Talent, and perseverance.” I agree. The title to this cd is just right. “Sugar Sweet” is a sweet sounding blues cd. This man has been performing since he was 6 on the streets of New Orleans and I heard ‘Orleans in each song. He adds good harmonica licks and lights up the music with his resonant voice. “This little light of Mine” medley is perfect for Sunday morning. If there was a church you could find this music being played I’d be there every week. His voice reminds me somewhat of Keb Mo’ but I don’t want to sell this man short. His style is his own. Start to finish this is a gem. Sweet indeed! Anne Lamont
