Finis Tasby: Jump, Children!

By Published: | 2,015 views
The more I listen to most blues releases, the more they sound like every other blues release. The more I listen to Jump, Children! the more I like it. Finis (rhymes with highness) Tasby is a veteran bluesman who spent most of his career as a drummer and bassist, not a singer. His singing is formidably soulful on this CD, recorded with some of Los Angeles' finest blues instrumentalists: Rick Holmstrom, Kid Ramos, Coco Montoya, Larry Taylor, Lester Butler, Rob Rio and Woody Woodford, to name but a few. They really cook on 12 tunes that combine the down-home country-soul of Tasby's native Texas with a swinging sensibility so prevalent in West Coast blues. If you like Lowell Fulson or Jimmy McCracklin — previous Tasby employers both — you should enjoy this one.
