  CD Review: SPIRITUS - Jane Lee Hooker
By SKeon
   

I have nothing bad to say about this New York based band's new album under the label. They have an updated seventies southern blues kind of vibe going on with the soulful powerful vocals, screaming emotion premeditated guitars, smooth chest rumbling bass, and rock solid intense drums. This 10 track album is going to have your listening needs covered starting with the hard driving southern gutbucket inspired almost rockabilly lead track (How Ya Doin'?) then into some very groove influenced modern blues. The power the fifth track (Later On) starts off like you were hit in the face with a brick then breaks into a soulful, belly rubbing kind of ballad. The haunting quality of (How Bright The Moon) has a very “Etta James” kind of feel that is ripe with so much emotion you'll think you need to wring out the CD when it's finished. Their cover of Bobby Bland's 1961 hit (Turn On Your Love Light) not only does justice to the original, but give it a very updated, modern sound. There's only one thing you want to do when you hear the final track (The Breeze), think about the food scene of Nine and a half weeks. There's not one thing wrong with a band that can express that kind of feel in a person and if they do, they got it all goin' on!


            Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Jane Lee Hooker's second album Spiritus. You can also buy it on I Tunes, Google Play, or Spotify. When you have it kick back and be prepared to get your groove on!
