With her debut album on Alligator, Marcia Ball has produced an album that perhaps is not as much a good-time, rollicking disc of New Orleans influenced R&B as her prior albums. The music here is a bit deeper and the album focuses more on her as a singer than a pianist, though there are more than enough places for her to display her considerable talents on the piano. Good material, a cameo by Delberrt McClinton, a fine studio band with guitarist Pat Boyack meriting special praise, and Marcial Ball perhaps singing better than ever make this a release that should appeal to fans of classic blues and R&B.

Ms. Ball's latest CD shows that she is like a fine wine and only improves as time goes by. Her latest is a perfect follow up to "Let Me Play With Your Poodle". Her Texas/Louisiana roots show throughout but she adds a touch of Memphis blues and even some boogie woogie. The song selection is right on target with a great balance of originals and covers. The duet with Delbert McClinton is fantastic but Marcia's own voice and keyboard work are the keys to this CD. And, its out just in time for Jazz Fest. If you can, go see Marcia Ball in concert. If you can't, this CD may be the next best thing.

Like fine wine, Ms. Ball continues to improve as the years pass. This CD is a wonderful follow up to "Let Me Play With Your Poodle" and lets her explore not only more of the Louisiana/Texas sound that has been the hallmark of her career but offers her an opportunity inject a hint of Memphis and some boogie, too. If you ever have a chance to see her in concert don't miss it. This CD may be the next best thing.

Think of boogie woogie, zydeco, piano skills unmatched and a great expressive style...the result is Marcia Ball...memories of past releases come to mind ~ "Hot Tamale Baby", "Gatorhythms", "Blue House", "Let Me Play With Your Poodle" and "Sing It", all on the Rounder label, composer of blues with lyrics pouring straight from the heart...I'm a big, big fan, and this latest release from Alligator Records ~ "Presumed Innocent", spells a winner.
From ballads to New Orleans blues, Marcia keeps them coming straight at you, entire CD is a must have...don't pass this one up...Can't say enough, except...we need more of the same...so spin this, sit back and enjoy, cause' Marcia's so happy when she's with you...you're going to have a ~ BALL!

I am a long term Marcia Ball fan. Her music and piano boogie really energizes me. Recently she appeared in concert locally (Norman OK). I took my two daughters who are in their early 20s and who were not familiar with Ms Ball. They were both mesmerized by the talent and the music of this lady. Any of her CDs are a bargain. All of her stuff is fun. All of her music is hot ... hot ... hot!

A great new CD by a longtime favorite of mine, Marcia Ball. Presumed Innocent showcases what her loyal fans have admired throughout her career, a deep passion for her music delivered with her wonderful sense of humor and elegant taste. A must have for Marcia Ball fans and all fans of good music! (PS The Doyle Bramhall you have linked as producer is not correct-the father, not the son, produced this album with Marcia.)

I was shopping in the Amaxon's Alligator web site and I saw Marcia Ball, I bought it on a wim. Not hard blues but good, fun rythm and blues. Great stuff. I don't have any others, but I will. Great Piano by Marcia, and great guitar, especially on Thibodaux, Louisiana, A great rocking tune. Delbert McClinton stops by on Scene of the Crime. If you like old fashioned fun Rythm and Blues this is great stuff...

Marcia has been influenced by many different styles of music, predominately blues and roots rock but also including R+B, country and jazz - even some Cajun. You can find elements of all these in this album though some are more obvious than others. She has never been a prolific recording artist but her albums are all of the highest quality. This wonderful album, mostly of good-time music, shows Marcia singing as good as ever and backed by plenty of great musicians, although she only occasionally shows her dynamic skills on the piano.
The songs are mainly original (often written by Marcia) but also include covers of You make it good (a cover of an Allen Toussaint song featuring Delbert McClinton as duet vocalist), I have the right to know (originally written and recorded by Brenda Burns and also covered by Francine Reed) and I'm coming down with the blues (a Don Covay song from 1960).
Among the original songs, I particularly like Louella (on which Marcia makes more use of her piano than usual for this album), Thibodaux Louisiana (with a touch of Cajun). She's so innocent (an outstanding ballad) and You make me happy (a great song to close the album) - but every song here is brilliant.
If you like great rock music with a variety of other influences, this is for you.
