I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, American Roots Project, from Jack’s Waterfall and it’s a cool mix of blues, rock, New Orleans, Latin and R&B music. Opening with New Orleans R&B influenced, Louise, Jack Licitra on vocal and piano has that traditional rolling piano style, with Trifon Dmitrov on bass and Mark Carpentieri on second line flavored drums. My Baby’s Gone A Long Time has a contemporary vocal feel with just the right amount of funk by Dmitrov. Warmed by the organ addition and timed by the piano work of Licitra, this track has strong radio potential. Jack’s Rag is a great little piano workout with a vintage feel. Another top track on the release is bluesy, West Texas Ghost Story, with it’s strong melody, tight drum work and solid vocals. I’ve Been Listening really commands your attention with a strong melody, gospel like piano structure and nice vocals by Licitra. Very nice. Wrapping the release is Like An Eagle with it’s blend of country and revival styles.
