Fired Up and Ready To Go by David McGee
Terrific new blues albums from DEBBIE DAVIES (Holdin’ Court) and the LAURIE MORVAN BAND (Fire It Up!).

CHARLES WILSON, Troubled Child
The Truth, Unvarnished and Powerfully Persuasive
By David McGee

Troubled Child is not a summation of a career to date, but a promise at long last fulfilled. This is the man we want Charles Wilson to be, taking the smooth groove of Philly soul; the gospel-infused, horn-driven smolder of Memphis soul; the urban romanticism of latter-day Smokey Robinson; and a clear, poetically articulated vision of the world he wants to live in, then molding these elements into a seamless signature sound.
