Format: Audio CD
There are two fine guitarists I like a lot that came up at the same time and released their albums also almost simultaneously, until one of them passed away. I am refering to Zachary Breaux and Doc Powell.
Doc's first album is an EXTRAORDINARY one !
First of all, it shows how talented this man is with his guitar. The opening track ("Bahamma Momma"), "new day" or "On the other side" are good examples of virtuosity (sharp and rapid playing).
Second, the album is intelligently balanced : instrumentals, vocal contributions, tribute (to Eric Gale), cover version...without being pasty or cheesy or sounding overproduced, a very common thing in this genre, you will agree.
Third, the contribution of invited artists is one of the best I've ever seen : Philip Bailey (EWF), Jeffrey Osborne, Siedah Garrett and Howard Hewett (Shalamar) are PERFECT on vocals. Kirk Whalum on sax, Ronnie Laws on sax, Ronnie Foster on organ, Bob James on piano, Patrice Rushen also on piano... AND, all of these artists on different tracks, of equal quality. Some think that just having a great lineup of artists that just play two notes is a guarantee by itself that the album is going to a) be great, b) sell more. On this album, everyone really does something. Who can give more ?
Fourth, the cover of Marvin's "Inner city blues" is a great one, and you know as well as I do that many cover versions are often flavourless, thus don't mean much, or are literally ridiculous. I could go on with several other reasons, but why don't you get this cd instead ? You like the vocalists featured on the album ? You like great sounds ? Then you must have this one.
The album is from 1994, and I still enjoy listening to it today. That might be a final clue...

I first had the chance to listen to Doc Powell in the late 1990's on now defunct Radio Station WJJZ in Philadelphia. This station played the best mix of jazz I had ever heard, and Doc was a regularly featured artist. Inner City Blues moves from start to finish and all the songs are excellent. Doc is as good as they get, and this CD is worth every penny. One fine jazz guitarist!

Doc Powell is a Bad Man It's surprising that he does not receive more publicity for his music. Inner City Blues is a nice CD, however not his best work (that would be 97th and Columbus). Doc, it's been awhile, I am waiting for your next release.
