Austin based Dialtone Records has released the album "Now Dig This!" that in 2019 had seen the light in two editions under the title "It's The Blues Funk" in digital format or in the Japanese edition titled  "Don't Worry About The Blues". Crystal Thomas, born in 1977, originally from Shreveport (LA), stopped being a candidate to become a present figure among the female voices of soul and contemporary blues panorama. As a trombonist, she joined the Japanese band The Bloodest Saxophon and in 2019 she toured with them as a further step in her recognition on festival stages around the world. In addition to several released singles, this is her third work, where beyond her own compositions she does not mind covering Albert King or Janis Joplin to give way to her extraordinary vocal strength that she has, always with omnipresent that smell of gospel music that she soaked up in as a child. She's accompanied on the album by Lucky Peterson in what was his last appearance in a recording studio. Congratulations to the people of Dialtone for recovering for its greater diffusion this album by Crystal Thomas, a work not only graceful but it points to the highest in this year of pandemic ups and downs. Or so it should be. An album to always have it close.
