From the recording Waiting For The Call

Bonnie Raitt’s response to aging and the thinning of the herd provides a perfect introduction to this collection. This Stones-like retooling acts as a rollicking letter of intent: Singer Shana Blake’s delivery is pure defiance; the pugilism of drummer Terry Anderson puts The Reaper on the ropes, and saxophonist Tim Gordon and guitarist Michael “B” Bennett unleash scorched earth solos. Make no mistake: This IS for “those who didn’t make it.”
