CD: Groove Jumping! Various Artists

Groove Jumping!
Various Artists

No Good Lover 2:57 Strange Kind of Feeling 2:08 Bottle it Up and Go 2:27 Boot ‘Em Up 2:39 Talk That Talk 2:32 Lawdy Miss Mary 2:38 Worried ‘Bout You Baby 2:41
Dat Dat De Dum Dum 2:10 Radar 2:37 How Come 2:36 Dead Broke 2:45
Speed King 2:44 Smack Dab in the Middle 2:35


The album just jumps right in and gets moving. I guess you could refer to it as a duet of sorts. No Good Lover is much more of a fight or the two different sides that caused a breakup. It’s definitely a toe tapper maybe even a take off your hat, put on your spurs and jump out on the floor; all the while preparing yourself for a bull about to be released.
Strange Kind of Feeling, is my kind of music. It kinda brings me back to those years I spent in New Orleans. It almost sounds like the two songs are from different bands. A saxophone and piano drive the song. It’s a mix of southern jazz and blues. At this point I’m dying to listen to the rest of the album.
I just had to check it out. It’s a discography. They are different bands or musical acts that all seem to be from longtime years passed by. I’m just going to go through one-by-one and add in the artists later. That just seems more fitting. Obviously, they wouldn’t have made it onto this album if they didn’t deserve it, so this one is going to e hard. Next up, Bottle it up and Go has the chaotic extremes of a hard driving piano, a throaty jazz singer and a sax that I could just imagine was one of those late night “Get the F#@k out!!” songs. You can’t stay here so grab a bottle and hit the door. I really wish I had this song on the jukebox at a dive bar I used to work at down in the French Quarter. There were many nights, or mornings, it could’ve come in real handy.
Boot ‘Em Up , slows it down a little and takes you into early Ska music. Kinda makes me think of rag tag suits and bowler hats. So far, this is my favorite song on the album. The energy and message that gets across of “We’re gonna have a root-an-tooting time…We’re gonna have a ball.”The sax leads you back into a speakeasy, or maybe the scratchy vocals swing open the door of a juke joint where race and gender blend on the dance floor for all to walk away with that feeling of an unmatchable memory.
Lawdy Miss Mary, comes after that with a different sound. This is a much more 1950’s mainstream style. It brings to mind the picture of driving around in a ’57 Chevy with doo-wop on every street corner and the soda fountains still the norm on Main Street. Worried ‘Bout You Baby, comes from that same bygone era. Probably, originating in the African American parts of the Midwest or the south but crossed those “tracks” during the civil rights era or before to help sort of bridge the divide.
Dat Dat De Dum Dum, must be a pre Elvis song. I know a lot of the music that he performed was from the African American R&B that never could cross over due to the racial divide. Either influenced or thrust into this genre the similarities between the two are just two close to be ignored.

Radar, How Come, and Dead Broke are lyrically fantastic songs, unlike the others on the album so far these mainly focus on the various stories surrounding the titles. Speed King, is more of an actual song with refrain and all.

The one constant that I could find through the album were the saxophone parts, piano, and rather rough and tough R&B lyrics. So now the artists; Mickey and Sylvia sang No Good Lover they were an R&B duet from the 1950’s-60’s, Tiny Kennedy sang Strange Kind of Feeling, Big John Greer a saxophonist from the late 1940s sang Bottle it Up and Go, The Dew Droppers sang five songs on the album, Mr. Bear was a saxophonist/band leader/composer from New York City who sang Radar and How Come, Roy ‘Mr. Guitar’ Gaines a singer and songwriter sang Dat Dat De Dum Dum, and The Five Keys sang Lawdy Miss Mary.

This really is a must have album with music and songs from a bygone era that doesn’t get much play or recognition of how important it was on the culture of R&B and just play music in general. This should be taught in high school as a music appreciation course mixed in with history. Sure, it may seem so old fashioned to most but add the stories, analyze the lyrics and study the times and it may just add some depth to the music being put out. These weren’t times when someone gave you a sheet and a tune and told you to lend your voice for some money.

KELSEA BALLERINI DIGITALLY RELEASES EP

KELSEA BALLERINI DIGITALLY RELEASES EP


Nashville, Tenn. (November 24, 2014) – Newly named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country Black River Entertainment songwriter and recording artist Kelsea Ballerini digitally releases her self-titled EP today. The acoustic music video for Kelsea’s debut single “Love Me Like You Mean It” is featured in CMT’s “Artist Discovery” campaign and is now playing on CMT Pure.
Touted by Billboard as an “...Uptempo, take-charge anthem,” the single earned her recognition as being the #1 Added Debut Single By a Female in 2014 and “Love Me Like You Mean It” is nearing the Top 40 at # 43 this week on both Mediabase and Billboard country airplay charts. 
Songwriting is cornerstone in Kelsea’s composition as an artist making the invitation from CMT to join their Next Women of Country franchise alongside last year’s members including GRAMMY-winner singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves and GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriters Brandy Clark and Jewel, all the more humbling.
“I remember seeing the women that CMT chose last year for Next Women of Country and thinking, ‘I hope one day I can be part of a similar group because it’s such an exciting time for women in country music.'”
Kelsea continued, “I never thought that a year later I’d be part of this group. It’s a huge honor and I’m very thankful to be in company with ladies that are really breaking through and shaking up country music right now.”
“Love Me Like You Mean It” is included on Kelsea Ballerini co-produced by Forest Glen Whitehead & Jason Massey, along with four additional new songs penned by Kelsea. “The First Time,” Kelsea’s only solo-write on the EP puts her songwriting abilities on full display.
