Beth Hart & Joe Bona­massa

Black Cof­fee

She brings the lar­ynx. He brings the licks. And on cov­ers al­bum #3, the odd cou­ple of soul-blues don’t mess with the for­mula, splash­ing rocket fuel and fresh mojo over 10 lesser-known stan­dards. Be­tween Hart’s ragged holler and the parp­ing brass, there’s not much el­bow room in the mix, but ev­ery song gets a hit of Bona­massa fairy­dust: try the spring-heeled fuzz hook of Joy, the soul-on-sleeve break from Lul­laby Of The Leave sort he leisurely bends of Sit­ting On Top Of The World. When he ig­nites opener Give It Ev­ery­thing You Got with a snakey wah solo, you’ll get a buzz equiv­a­lent to slam­ming six dou­ble espres­sos. Henry Yates
