Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2009-06-22Kirksville Missouri musician BJ Allen and her band Blue Voodoo is certainly a force to be reckoned with. BJ has a dynamic vocal quality and range that could easily be compared to Ellen White, Liz Mandville or even Grand Rapids own Roberta Bradley. You can feel BJ pour her entire soul into each track on this fine release. The first track “Don’t Know What You’re Missin” is sure to fill the dance floor with its swinging sound. The track “Borderline” shows the funkier side of BJ and her excellent cover of Janis Joplin’s “Get It While You Can” has a certain gospel feel to it. BJ also slows things down a bit on Dinah Washington’s classic track “Sunday Kind Of Love” displaying her more sensitive side. The name of this CD is Heartless but after one listen you will discover that this Musician and her excellent band from Missouri have a whole lot of heart and lots of soul. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
