Reviews on the James Crouch Liberty CD
Gail Worley https://www.tradebit.com
Jim Crouch is a blues-rock guitar master from Florida who can play as well as blues greats like BB King and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
By Stacey Board https://www.tradebit.com
Crouch is definitely an accomplished guitarist playing acoustic, electric and slide with equal expertise. The whole CD has a very authentic feel to it. By: Ben Ohmart (Assistant Editor) https://www.tradebit.com
Eric Clapton has had his territory invaded again, this time by blues guitarist Jim Crouch The great thing about Liberty is that it''s just as much rock as blues - total collaboration, so don''t worry about getting depressed. It''ll lift ya. Reviewed by: Keith ''MuzikMan'' Hannaleck https://www.tradebit.com
Crouch is a forceful guitar man that has his chops down, and so do his band mates and the various guests that appear on this project. at times he rips off some impressive licks reminiscent of Clapton or Stevie Ray On the instrumental Serenity, Crouch and his crackerjack band exercise a marvelous display of sharp-as-a-razor six-string dexterity with a tip of the hat to all the great blues-rock players that have come and gone, and they do it beautifully.

Crouch can torch an electric guitar a la Stevie Ray Vaughn, but he also knows when to pull back and deliver languid, Santana-like, while-my-guitar-gently-weeps solos, as on the blues instrumentals "Time and Place" and "Serenity." Several songs break from the blues. The wandering-troubadour vibe of Steffen''s "Give ''Til It Hurts" recalls the Band, while the shimmering acoustic guitar of the instrumental "Debra" is in the vein of Duane Allman''s "Little Martha."
