What's going on here? Veteran roots artists have been releasing some of the best music of their careers- B.B. King, Gregg Allman, Dr, John and now Bonnie Raitt have all recorded five star works within the last year or two. Aside from the obvious talents of these artists, there seems to be a common thread at work here: sympathetic producers.

Both B.B. and Gregg worked with veteran T-Bone Burnett to create their strongest studio efforts in years, while the good Doctor was produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach for one of the most unusual (and satisfying) recordings in his canon. On "Slipstream", Bonnie is produced by alt-country artist Joe Henry. He earned serious blues cred with Solomon Burke's "Don't Give Up On Me" and Betty Lavette's "I've Got My Own Hell to Raise", among many others.

Bonnie and Henry recorded ten songs in his home studio with an excellent group of acoustic musicians: guitarist Greg Leisz and pianist Patrick Warren are joined by the rhythm section of bassist David Piltch and Jay Bellrose, the drummer who played the skins on Gregg Allman's "Low Country Blues". Four of the songs made the cut on "Slipstream"- Bob Dylan's "Standing In the Doorway" and "Million Miles" are standouts, while Loudon Wainwright III's "You Can't Fail Me Know" and Henry's "God Only Knows" are ballads that will stay in your head long after your first listen.

Covering Dylan always takes courage, but Bonnie has the ability to take the Bard's songs and make them her own, similar to Mavis Staples or Maria Muldaur. When Dylan sings the second verse from "Doorway", "If I saw you, don't know if I'd kiss you or kill you", his dark humor delivery almost makes you laugh.

"Slipstream" is first and foremost the story of an artist returning to her realm after a long dry spell, rediscovering her fountain of inspiration and acquiring the drive to once again practice her craft. Since that artist happens to be Bonnie Raitt, one of America's most iconic and important musicians, it comes as no surprise that it is an enlightening, hearty listen with a feels-like-home comfortability.

The seven-year gap between "Slipstream" and 2005's terrific "Souls Alike" is the longest Raitt has taken between studio efforts, understandable since her life in the interim has been fraught with loss - of parents, of brother, of best friend. While that certainly can be read as informing her soul-searching take on Bob Dylan's masterpiece "Standing in the Doorway" and the aching piano/vocal "God Only Knows," the album only occasionally dips its toe into the deep end of introspection. In fact, the only tune Raitt co-writes here is the rambunctious, sing-songy "Down to You."

This is music with a joyful edge, crafted for the simple pleasure of craft (an artist of Raitt's stature taking such a long gap between records indicates a lack of prioritizing sales or hits) and therefore of great interest to her longtime devotees. It doesn't have the radio-friendly edge of earlier recordings, and it need not. A few songs have a similar bite, especially at the core of the LP, but listeners on the market for a new Raitt album - and there are more than a few of them - will certainly be pleased.

Randall Bramlett's "Used to Rule the World" kicks off the album with funky, slamming, kinetic instrumentation. Raitt's playing is prominent, large and boisterous, firmly establishing that time has not frayed her resolve.

Slipstream, Bonnie Raitt

Bonnie Bonnie Bonnie,
Slipstream, should of been " streamlined " because since I toured with her in the mid eighty's & on & off thru the mid 90's, I seen her efficiency in all that she did, able to tour 10 months at a stretch because she had the talent for maximizing Energy, Time, Every note, Every part of the industry without breaking a sweat, she just made things not just look effortless but it truly was effortless & as she told me then " I want to be doing this when I'm a hundred an one, so I need each step of the process to be as simple an effortless as possible " Okay Bonnie you have done it,( Though you're not 101 yet ) I know you will be doing what you do effortlessly when that time comes !!!
