B.B. Driftwood Southward Bound on Hybrid SACD

B.B. Driftwood  has filmed in Africa, he has a godfather in Havana, he spent four years recording with drummer Olle Romo and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) in London and Cannes and he has played with and been inspired by local musicians in the Caribbean and South America. In a broad sense his music belongs to the blues genre and is a mix of soul, gospel, blues and country sometimes spiced with Cuban and Brazilian rythms. With his smoky vocals this becomes a very soulfull expression. His lyrics are drawn from his personal treasure chest of experience and deal with subjects like love, longing, loss and joy.

B.B. Driftwood's debut release, Southward Bound, contains 12 original songs including album highlights "Southward Bound," "Sweet Elizabeth" and "Indian Summer."  Southward Bound also includes special guest appearances by Maria Winther (backing vocals), winner of the Monica Zetterlund award in 2011, and well-known Opus 3 Records blues artist Eric Bibb (guitar). Presented here on the sonically stunning Hybrid SACD format!

"(B.B. Driftwood) conjures up Tom Waits, Taj Mahal, Keb’ Mo’, Bill Frisell and late period Dylan, while suffusing Cuban/Brazilian rhythms, fine gospel singing and superb musicianship into the mix. His tuneful, bluesy voice is set against unusual chord progressions and top notch percussion from Sebastian Notini on atabaque, brushes and snare drum. Backing vocals from Paris Renita, Sylver Logan Sharp and Daryl Hunt add to the fun and match the standards of the best Leonard Cohen productions. My top pick is track 5, “A Way To Celebrate.” This is a way to celebrate the sweet contentment that comes from sitting down listening to people you believe are true. These are not your everyday lyrics, but words of wide experience and contemplation, set to music that will sing in your ears for days. Did I tell you this is a superb SACD recording from Sweden’s audiophile label, Opus 3? A quick test shows the DSD layer to be significantly more rewarding than the Redbook, the image more spacious, the definition higher and the experience more relaxing. So not only is the rather short disc chock full of sweet music, but with the right equipment you get to hear it just as it was laid down." - Phil Gold/EnjoyTheMusic.com
