Format: Audio CD
Blues Citizens is one of those albums that is hard to classify and may take some time to be fully appreciated. I must confess that I took quite a while digesting this album over the past three or four weeks. I have many of Radam Schwartz's albums, though not all of them. But out of all the ones I do own, this is by far my favorite. As a fan, I can honestly say that I never cease to be surprised by Radam.

The album kicks off with a very energetic organ tune, "Dem Philadelphia Organ Blues." This was the first track off the album that I heard played on Jazz radio. The first few bars seem to sound like a throw-back tune, but the song progresses and rounds out very well. The Herbie Hancock tune, "Driftin'," follows up with a very up-tempo arrangement. I really like the organ sectiongs on this tune.

For whatever reason, I find that on the most recent albums I have heard Radam's organ playing goes best when accompanied by saxophonists. The 3rd track, "Grieve But Be Brief," is just a gorgeous ballad where the organ and saxophone parts seem to be perfectly balanced. The standard "I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance" is arranged along the same beautiful framework, though there are some wispy moments to it. These tracks reminded me of "Love Conversations" from his most recent release, Magic Tales, with his full band, Conspiracy For Positivity. That one also features some lovely interplay between Radam and a young alto saxophonist, Anthony Ware.

The title track, "Blues Citizens," has some nice ensemble brass with interesting changes.
