Featuring support musicians like keyboardist John Juxo, keyboardist Matt McCabe, drummer Michael Avery, famed bassist Mudcat Ward, guitarist Peter Henderson, vocalist Carrie Johnson, and vocalist Shavonne Moore, Thomas’s new Goin’ Home finds him indulging himself in these traditional genres, especially Louisiana blues.

“I infused a lot of the country blues that I’ve had,” he said. “Mudcat Ward turned me onto some old Hank Williams gospel music, so I started getting more into gospel, and we brought that into the equation. We made it a mix of blues, gospel, country, this and that. It’s an amalgamation of those things. It kind of works, and I really discovered how I like singing that kind of stuff. When we went into the studio, that’ just what came out of it.”

RackyThomas4“Goin’ Away, Baby” is a Joe Turner/Pete Johnson song Thomas included. It has only vocals and piano, an approach that he and Matt McCabe have been using for a long time. “We thought it would be a nice change of pace,” Thomas said. “I’ve been a big fan of Joe Turner’s style so that’s why we added that song to that record.”

His next cut on that CD is title track “Goin’ Home.” The blues tune is a spiritual number about traveling back to one’s place of origin. Piano, accordion, harmonica and more are loaded with spiritual fiber. A choir like chorus carries the message even further.

“That’s a Charlie Patton tune that he just sang with guitar and the voice, and I just liked the whole gospel vibe to it,” Thomas said. “It’s going back to the roots. I just love the melody and the singing and everything and the girls just sang background. That really enriched the song. John Juxo’s great accordion playing just gives it a joyful feel. I love that tune. We pulled out all the stops on that. That might be my favorite track on the CD.”

The second half of the new Thomas album is more assertive. “Down In The Bottom” has a crisp vocal approach that makes everything sound urgent and harried. “It has a blending of ‘Rolling And Tumbling” and Down In The Bottom,’” Thomas said. “I just like that Delta feel and the slide guitar. You get an almost R.L. Burnside vibe or Junior Kimbrough.”

RackyThomas5“Mary Don’t You Weep” is a sleepy Louisiana blues that gets its layers of soul from an accordion melody, a girl choir, and slide guitar phrasing. “I’ve heard a few different versions of that song,” Thomas said. “That’s another gospel song. Bruce Springsteen’s done a version of it. Taj Mahal did a version in the major key. We went into the studio with that, and it came out with a Latin feel too. That’s just the way it evolved in the studio, and we went with it.”
