Är detta en av de bästa skivorna som Eric Bibb gjort!?

Från Eric Bibbsa oficiella hemsida:
"The latest album from Bibb is a masterful collection of 13 songs and two bonus tracks that solidifies his journey as a true story-teller, where blues, folk and world music intersect at a musical crossroads.

The new record is an ambitious studio project that’s been a few years in the making,” says Eric Bibb about Jericho Road. “It was produced by Glen Scott, a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, recording engineer, arranger and producer, who I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with on several earlier albums. This record reflects many of the musical influences that have informed my writing throughout my career. World music sounds, blues, folk and soul all find their way into these songs.

“The title refers to the road between Jerusalem and Jericho where the Good Samaritan, a traveler of a despised race, stopped to help a stranger in need after better-off religious leaders had passed by and done nothing. On April 3, 1968, the night before his death, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King urged us to follow the example of the Good Samaritan, saying: ‘Ultimately, you cannot save yourself without saving others.’ If this record has a theme, that’s it in a nutshell: have a heart.”

“My dear friend Ernie McNally gifted the world with these beautiful lyrics that inspired this call for a new world,” writes Bibb in the liner notes about “Now.” “Stylistically, this song stuck out from the others on the album, but the divine vocals from the wonderful Linda Tillery and Tammi Brown, Glen’s rhapsodic, churchy piano and the soulful trumpet sounds from Goran Kajfes compelled me to include it as a bonus track.

“Composed, sung and played by Solo Cissokho, ‘Nanibali’ is, for me, the perfect ending of the Jericho Road journey,” Bibb adds. “This thrilling performance by a modern West African griot celebrates unity, understanding and love between all members of the global community.”
