Avery Sharpe – Sharpe Meets Tharpe (JKNM Records)

Bassist Avery Sharpe assembles a big band and works with a gospel choir to perform the music of Rosetta Tharpe, the godmother of rock. The tracks groove and follow the contemporary stage band format. But the meat is in the tracks with the Meli’sa Morgan taking on Tharpe’s vocals. Some great ripping solos buried in between. Play “I Want a Tall Skinny Papa” (7), “Spiritual Dilemma” (6)
