Ok, Ronnie Earl is one of my guitar heroes. I will not be objective. Every new album Ronnie releases gives me irresistible excitement, and "Mercy Me" is his twenty-eighth album in his nearly fifty-year professional career. His Strat has been omnipresent in the universe of blues for the last five decades as a testimony of an elegance, sobriety and finesse that, for sure along with Duke Robillard, have drawn the most homogeneous, delicate and refined silhouette that a blues musician has been able to show either in the recording studio or in a performance in front of an audience. At sixty-nine, my hero has recorded twelve sublime songs, he continues to play the guitar with the admirable subtlety and exquisiteness that has always made him special, each of his notes has its reason and logic in a context of perfect harmonies that make up some superb and glorious songs. In two songs he pays tribute to his colleagues Robillard and Ruthie Foster, in others he honors Muddy Waters, John Coltrane or Percy Mayfield while revising Jackie Wilson in a dynamic [Your Love Keeps Lifting Me] Higher and Higher. I just wish that Ronnie Earl will in good shape to continue giving us works like this. Thank you Ronnie.
