REVIEW: Lew Jetton & 61 South, 'Rain,' Coffee Street Records >>

Lew Jetton & 61 South's third effort, 'Rain' (Coffee Street), fulfills the promise of 'State Line Blues' and 'Tales From A 2 Lane,' for it is here where Jetton really puts it all together on eight originals and two covers-John Hiatt's "Feels Like Rain" and Allen Toussaint's "It's Raining." The band is sterling, aided and abetted by seasoned pros but held together by Jetton himself, an engaging singer/songwriter who takes from the blues tradition yet adds immeasurably his own thing.
