Terry Gillespie, formerly of Detroit, now calls Ottawa, Ontario home. It is certainly Canada’s gain. The highly regarded critic Tim Holek has called him Canada’s “King of Roots Music.” He has indeed been a bit of a Canadian blues legend for 40 years. Though raised in England, he was born in Edmonton, but it was in Detroit, in the 1950s and '60s, that he cut his musical teeth. He attended MSU to study chemical engineering, but it was musical concoctions that moved his soul. He came up on the local stages and shared space with everyone from John Lee Hooker to Albert Collins, with stops along the way backing Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff. He moved from Detroit to Montreal briefly and made the return to Canada permanent when he took Ottawa for his home in 1967. Brother of the Blues, his first recording in many, many years, is an amalgam of all of the above and more influences picked up along the way. The lead-off title tune reminds of Mark Knopfler with its stunning guitar work. On “Yellow Moon,” there is a heavy footed shuffle and a “chorus” of saxophones from Jody Golnick over Stephen Barry’s deep bass and Gordon Adamson’s snappy drums. “Big Boy” has a slinky groove, “Cold Ground,” with Martin Boodman’s harp comping, is deceptively upbeat. “Yellow Moon” has shades of Van Morrison, both in Gillespie’s vocal presence and in the arrangement. “Carl Nicholson” (aka Van Morrison) is even more so, down to the imagery in the writing. ("I will sing my song along a winding lane/one country to another/we were young/our souls on fire/in 1968 that’s when I met my brother”). Jimmy Reed’s “I’ll Change My Style,” the only cover in the bunch, has a lope that’s infectious. “Rue Guy Boogie” is not a boogie. Whatever it is, it is definitely a toe-tapper of the highest order. It has elements that remind of the Band. Jody Golick’s baritone work is the treat on the cut. “Bath Tub” reflects his affection for Jamaica music, with an almost dub style, and the closer “Kruschev” is a flashback for us of a certain age who remember Nikita and his shoe pounding episode at the UN as the enemy.” Cool harp, big percussive beat, This is most decidedly not your daddy’s blues. ~Mark E.
