1. Days Like This (3:20) 2. Pain (3:52) 3. I Idolize You (3:50) 4. So Doggone Good (3:50) 5. My Turn My Time (3:39) 6. The Way You Love Me (3:24) 7. Don't Get Me Wrong (4:11) 8. Jealous Kind (4:58) 9. After Laughter (3:35) 10. Move Over (3:30) 11. I Smell Trouble (3:41) 12. If I Can't Have You (3:09) The 12 songs of " Days like This " cover the range of influences blues / soul / r & b of Linda Valori while she dives into new and fresh glimpses blues Chicago-style, the 'R & B old school, as well as versions inventive and effective material based on contemporary R & B. There are tracks of Janis Joplin ("Move Over") and Van Morrison (the excellent opening "Days like This") as well as Ike Turner's ("The Way You Love Me"). There are songs in which the relentless spirit soul is powered by a horn section that includes Marqueal Jordan (tenor sax) and Doug Corcoran (baritone sax, trumpet). The cutting harmonic Vincent Bucher flies up the pieces more strictly blues, while the chorus by Stevie and Mike Avery Robinson added a large beauty and poignancy to their harmonies. The arrangements are ordered and incisive, solos well disciplined, yet memorableby the expert touch of the guitar by Luca Giordano "So Doggone Good" equally tasty and pungent support Mike Wheeler in "I Idolize you" and "I Smell Trouble ", one of several pieces of prominence.

Linda Valori hails from Italy, and yes the blues and R&B influenced music is as hot as a stalled train on the `El' in the summer heat. Why the `El' well, there's a relation with Chicago and Ms.Valori. This release was recorded, mixed and mastered at JoyRide Recording studio in Chi-town and features a solid core of hard cut Chicago musicians on this release. It will be available March 24, 2013 distributed through City Hall Records and also available on

The title track is a somewhat obscure Van Morrison song, from his 1995 release. It is an interesting song because it turns around the old adage that when things are bad momma would say there'd be days like this into "When all the parts of the puzzle start to seem like they fit / Then I must remember there'll be days like this.". `Days Like This' kicks out the stall with a solid R&B groove, with horns, piano roll intro and it just shakes & shimmies from there. Ms. Valori has an interesting voice, strong but with just enough of a raspy edge to give her the feel for the songs she selects to cover.

Funky as it wants to be is Ike Turner's `I Idolize You'. Featuring Chicago blues man Mike Wheeler laying out a scorching lead track over a very serious rhythm of Keith Henderson (guitar) Billy Dickens (bass), Khari Parker on drums. There is a clamant pleading force to the vocals and it makes us believe the words sung. This is one of the two covers of Ike's music, the other being `The Way You Love Me' is a more traditional shuffle roll done with an understanding of what it takes to create the sound and beat.

Chicago singer/songwriter Deitra Farr's tune `My Turn My Time' is done with equal aplomb.
