Release: Leonard Griffie "Better Late Than No Time Soon"
What's the winning recipe for a compelling contemporary blues album?
Start with an artist firmly grounded in the blues. An artist who is also
a prolific songwriter, blues guitar master, and a unique and engaging
singer. Add to the traditional blues a generous helping of old school
Rhythm and Blues, a big cup of Soul, a dash of Jazz. Then make sure all
these delicious ingredients are put together in just the right mix, with
the right musicians to properly enhance the final blend.
"Better Late Than No Time Soon" is the result of exactly this recipe.
With this effort, Leonard Griffie and a highly talented group of players
has created a new album that manages to be both fresh, yet
simultaneously traditional. The songs display impressive range. From
soulful ballad to smoky R&B to foot stompin' shuffle. Truly the
culmination of a lifetime of blues.
