Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

TERRI HENDRIX

CRY TILL YOU LAUGH

2010-05-25

Listening to Terri Hendrix new release is much like listening to a perfect set on WYCE. Terri perfectly mixes folk, blues, jazz and pop in a way that most musicians can only dream of. What makes this CD so special is not only Terri's songwriting, guitar playing, harmonica or mandolin it is her personality and charisma that shines through on each of these tracks. The CD begins with Terri on harmonica in a bluesy track of Dorothy Parker poems set to music. "Slow Down" is classic Terri Hendrix with her more traditional folk-pop sounds. Terri reaches into her blues repertory on tracks like "Automatic", "Roll On", "Sometimes" and "Hand Me Down Blues". "You Belong In New Orleans" is an upbeat jazz track with horns and could be used as the theme song for the crescent city. "Take Me Places" is the perfect ending to the disc where Terri dives into the sounds of Jazz/Swing music where she scats the horns blow and you realize this talented artist has just taken your mind on a very satisfying musical journey.
