Let's Start Something (Blue Rocket)

With his first album in eight years, Rob Roy Parnell unloads choogling blues boogies bolstered by his ferocious harp. His backing band rolls free and easy, with cameos from brother Lee Roy ("Long Distance Love") and Stephen Bruton ("That's All She Wrote"), though "Sorry as They Come" and "If Mama Ain't Happy" swagger best, along with aptly titled Sarah Brown co-write "That's What the Blues Is All About."
