Deborah Silver: Glitter & Grits
by George W. Harris
Deborah Silver CD Cover
This album could be subtitled “For a good time, call…” as Deborah Silver teams up with a swinging band that includes Asleep At The Wheel and gets the joint jumping. The core team of Floyd Domino/p, David sanger/dr, Josh Hoag/b, Dennis Ludiker/fid, Eddie Rivers/stg, Ray Benson-Rick McRae/g and John Mills/sax have a rotating guest list, with some infectious western swing as Silver shines on a joyful ride of “That Old Black Magic” and the VFW’d “Fly Me To The Mon”. She shuffles and hoots on the Bob Wills-inspired “Bill Bailey Won’t You Please Come Home” and the coy read of “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself A Letter” while cooing through the charmer “Almost Like Being In Love”. Dueting with Ray Benson, she chicka-booms on a R&B rumbler “Ballin’ The Jack” while two stepping and clapping with Mickey Raphael on the harmonica for a boogie-ing “Deep In The Heart of Texas”. This lady can ride the broncos!
