Album Review: "S.O.S. 4: Blues for Your Soul" by Marc Broussard

Keeping the Blues Alive Records

Producers: Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith

Jettisoning the soul, funk, rock, pop and R&B sides of his repertoire, Marc Broussard spotlights the blues with this electrifying addition to his charitable recording series. Eleven covers plus one original explore the genre’s multicolored dimensions. From the old-school romance of “Cuttin In” to the experimental cacophony of “Empire State Express,” the style’s enduring qualities are on full display. Each track is cooked to perfection and served on a silver platter with all the fixins. – Andy Kaufmann
