Me & Miss Grimes

Me & Miss Grimes
All I can say is I haven't been able to listen to anything else. It Rocks, if it were vinyl, the grooves would be worn out already.

The Alison Pipitone Band's new CD "Me and Miss Grimes" is, in a word, amazing. The songs on this CD are first rate. Lyrical imagery is spot on. There are stories within stories here. Pipitone, who wrote all of these songs, exposes her soul. Her lyrics rip the listener's heart out. One understands what Pipitone sings about. Life hurts. But within that hurt, there is also joy. Yes, one understands and sympathizes. The musical arrangements are incredible, the instruments fresh and alive. And Pipitone's vocal performance is mesmerizing. Her octave changes and fluctuations are perfect. Her voice is sweet, haunting and beautiful. This is the band's best work to date. Buy this CD! Listen to it often. It is pure gold.

It's The Real Rock 'n Roll Deal
Alison Pipitone and her great band bring all the ingredients together on their stellar new album "Me and Miss Grimes". In many cases these days, artists either have the songs, the sound, the playing, or the vocals, but seldom do they possess all these vital components. Fortunately, Pipitone has the song writing chops coupled with a stunning rock 'n roll voice that's second to none. There's something delightfully Jagger-esque in her approach, and the band consistently kicks behind her in a way that's reminiscent of that late '60's, early '70's Let It Bleed/Exile on Main Street grit that never sounds dated.
The production throughout is spot on, and the sense of space in the arrangements showcases all the players. Special kudos to Graham Howes on lead guitar who serves each song just right. He brings forth an earthy crunch when needed and tasteful restraint exactly when it's called for. Jim Whitford's bass is wonderfully elastic, sliding in and around the arrangements to create motion and shade that's hard to describe and a delight to take in.
I really can't pick a favorite track outright: Me and Miss Grimes is a serving of rock 'n roll heaven that keeps my faith in the music alive. Best served with a macro-beer...and strongly recommended!
