Doug Wamble - Bluestate (CD, Album)

After all that soul, the jazz of "I Needn't Try," although definitely displaying Wamble's roots, stands out like a sore thumb. It all closes with a cover of Fiona Apple's "I Know" that returns Wamble to acoustic guitar, his natural instrument, giving a spare, aching version of the song. It's a soft, ideal closer to a lovingly crafted disc. Country Libations is, so far, the debut recording of the year.

Thoroughly integrating rural blues, gospel, swing, and free jazz into an organic musical conception that owes little to any model, this acoustic guitarist, singer, and composer is a one-man compendium of avant Americana.

Country Libations is an impressive introduction to a guitarists-singer-composer with a bright future. Wamble, the guitarist who has been heard with Wynton Marsalis, Cassandra Wilson and Steven Bernstein's Millenial Territory Orchestra, blends bebop, country, blues, gospel, soul and his own blue-eyed soul singing. Wamble, a young guitarist and singer, takes us on a soulful foray into the roots music from the Deep South.

The constants throughout the disc are Wamble's razor-sharp yet honey-sweet baritone; the bluesy tone of his vintage hollow-body Gretsch guitar, recorded without a pickup; the tuneful quality of his original compositions; and the easygoing cohesion of a working ensemble.

Merging blues, jazz and gospel with unimagined ease, Wamble has devised a unique style all the more impressive for its distinctive personal nature. These days, in particular, a rare, inclusive talent like this comes as nothing less than a gift. One of the unique aspects of Doug Wamble's style is that he plays strictly acoustic. Wamble's Tennessee Baptist infused tenor voice is as big as his guitar sound, and his band helped him create one of the most distinctive current conceptions in jazz. Wamble is a quadruple threat: accomplished singer-songwriter, eclectic composer, killer guitarist, and heady improviser.

His second album, Bluestate, illuminates the broad well of influence from which he draws. Wamble seems ever intent on forging new ground while always retaining certain valuable aspects of jazz tradition. Buy CD. Videos Sorry.

Wamble follows with a typically striking guitar solo, then resumes his vocal work, with drummer Peter Miles roaring and crashing like waves on the shore.

Finally, pianist Roy Dunlap unleashes a pianistic maelstrom that brings the song to an emotional high. In the middle solo sections it morphs into a fairly traditional blues, with Wamble working some genuine country and blugrass inflections into the mix.
