With its bright lights, rowdy bars and super-sized shopping malls, Rosemont, Illinois isn’t really the place where people flock for praise and worship. But, that’s exactly what Mississippi Gabe Carter delivers on his soulful new release, “Gabe Carter, Live from Rosemont.”

As someone who has honed his musical skills in Chicago’s subways and street corners, Carter is truly in his element when performing live. Although he has traveled the world over to play his signature brand of gospel-infused Mississippi blues, his front-porch style of play has never been captured on a CD—until this recent live appearance in Rosemont, Illinois.

While Carter clearly thrives in front of a live audience, this particular performance is further enhanced because he is playing an all -gospel set for all those that amassed at the Ram Restaurant. Carter also preaches at a Chicago area church and it’s quite clear the “Brother Gabe” knows how to deliver his musical message in a most moving manner.

For those unfamiliar with Carter’s story, here is a brief synopsis. He discovered this particular brand of blues after checking out a video on Jack Owens at the local library. He perfected his guitar technique by busking around places like local Red Line stations and Chicago’s busy street corners. He picked up the “Mississippi” moniker thanks to his mastery of the Bentonia-blues style with haunting minor chords and droning strings.

Carter’s voice has been likened to the late Junior Kimbrough and this comparison becomes quite apparent on the opening notes of the first track “In Jesus’Name.” But while Kimbrough was frequently found singing about his sad days and lonely nights, Carter’s keening vocals are lifted up in praise and glory.

While his distinctive droning chords and hypnotic riffs are featured in “God’s Power,” Carter’s impassioned voice truly takes stage as testifies that he’s “got God’s power all tangled up in my heart.”

After “giving it up” to drummer Dave Russell, Carter segues into a reprise of “In Jesus’ Name.” On this track, he is joined by WC Handy award winning harmonica player. Jeff Stone with harp, guitar and drums reaching a glorious crescendo. On the 4th track, “Homegoing,” it’s back to Carter and Russell doing their down-home collaboration once again.

Carter has recorded the Washington Phillips’ classic “I was Born to Preach the Gospel” on an EP but this live track truly showcases his live performance skills and rare ability to make a song his own.

Whether you’re seeking spiritual awakening or simply a fan of down-home, Bentonia-based Mississippi blues, this standout CD should be snapped up immediately. Giving this a listen will bring you there as one of blues music’s most electrifying live performers raised the roof in Rosemont, Illinois. ~BlueStone Records Press Release by Robin Zimmerman
