Father and Daughter Blues Brilliance
Great full voice and tight chugging backup band, this is another in the long line of modern blues groups fronted by the sass and suss of a young female singer with it all in her blood. Father Ed plays sharp guitar support throughout, providing much of the coolblues and funky sound, and he co-wrote all of the songs with daughter Sena. Indeed, this is the essential balance and complement: seventh track Last Chance exemplifying the standard with Ed’s soloing demonstrating considerable flair as well as the slow walkdown of the driving beat, with Sena’s vocal dancing emotively within – this is a superb performance. The band’s pulsing, wah-wah and staccato beats are the songs’ driving force and Sena rides them bareback with total control. If you keep your head still listening to this, consider yourself deceased.
