Deborah Coleman – Soul Be It

front

A powerful guitarist and an expressive vocalist, Deborah Coleman is a major force in the blues world. On Soul Be It, a well-rounded live set by her quartet, there are many highlights, including the rousing opener (“Brick”), the minor-toned blues “My Heart Bleeds Blue,” the bluish romp “Don’t Lie to Me,” and a jump blues, “I Believe.” However the most memorable selection is “Goodbye Misery,” which has a marathon solo by Coleman that is full of fire and creative ideas. This highly enjoyable set serves as a perfect introduction to the music of Coleman.
