Doyle Bramhall II Record Review
Rich Man (Concord)
Music Story  November 17, 2016, by Raoul Hernandez
"...That ghost beat between beats, split-second piston up and down the hi-hat, the coiled steel of a strummed string; every detail of sound, not so much layered as sequential, holds its own on Rich Man. The opener's depth of bass and percussion alone hangs suspended in air, hovering over some expanse like Doyle Bramhall II stepped off that proverbial life cliff and walked on clouds..."
