Russell possesses the “fearlessness of Jeff Beck” – Blues Revue
Woody Russell released a body of recorded work that spans from the folk-roots infused songwriter fare of his first album, as simple as that (1996) to the more recent and highly praised blues/soul release of Up Against It (2010) and his latest recording, Delicious Days (2013); a new album infused with sophisticated arrangements and harmony more closely associated with jazz. The Austin, Texas based Russell has always been a genre-blurring artist and Delicious Days is no exception. As a lyricist, Woody digs deep in to intimate, personal narratives while equally at home addressing a broader social consciousness. And, not unlike a primary influence of his, Van Morrison, Russell navigates the melody and rhythm of his written word with a precision and expression akin to a jazz improvisor. The end result in the case of Delicious Days is a lush, complex recording with a soul-jazz heart, created by a master craftsman and a superb band. It’s an album which, amid the musical intricacies, is brimming with very accessible songs.
