Deanna Bogart: Timing is Everything Mix blues, soul, and R&B together, add some sassy spice, and you have Deanna Bogart. Bogart has been a consistent presence in the blues world, having released albums on Blind Pig, Shanachie and Lightyear (to name a few); now she has taken full control of her career and artistry and formed her own label in order to release what is without question one of her finest recordings.

This album takes the listener on a journey of Bogart’s various influences, taking the approach of keeping the live feel and vibe that makes her one of the most entertaining and lively artists on the scene today. Keeping you feet still during the opening salvo, the funky and Latin tinged “Still The Girl in the Band,” or the equally rhythmic and poignant "(I’d Rather Be Sad) in Las Vegas.” Other highlights include touching “Soulache (For Alix),” which has a hint of The Carpenters' touch for pop ballads; and the soul styled “I’ll Be Missing You,’ only missing the backing vocals of the Rayettes.

Timing is Everything was recorded in a studio, but it was done keeping the feel of a live performance. This is the best non-live live recording of 2003.


Track Listing: 1. Still the Girl in the Band 2. People Can Be Just Plain Wrong 3. Soulache (for Alix) 4. Shadows on the Bedroom Wall 5. (I'd Rather Be Sad) in Las Vegas 6. I'll Be Missing You 7. Timing is Everything 8. When I Get Over You 9. Slip Away 10. Don't Forget to Remember

Personnel: Deanna Bogart - vox, piano, keys and saxes; Kajun Kelley - guitars and vox; Eric Scott - bass and vox; Mike Aubin - drums and percussion.
