I am kind of a little bored with some new releases. They sounded good on paper, but on record...not so much. The first one I am not thrilled with is the new release from Beth Hard and Joe Bonamassa "Don't Explain". She can flat out sing and he is a great guitarist and singer as well but for me this is, well just dull.
Another couple of artists I try to dig time after time are Derek Trucks and his Mrs. Susan Tedeschi. Both have gobs of talent but frankly bore the hell out of me. The new album "Revelator" is no exception. Well played, good vocals and still not worth my time. I tried to like it. Played it a bunch of times which makes listening to music work instead of a joyful experience.
Both releases prove that the sum is not always greater than the parts. And don't get me started about the Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton collaboration...BORING!!!
