We gave it a B

After more than 25 years, Roomful of Blues has settled into the role of the Respected Pros. That’s good and bad. Sure, they choose the classiest jump and blues material (Count Basie, Larry Williams) and deliver it in their best roadhouse style. But too many times they choke on their own good taste, settling into smooth grooves that fizzle rather than explode. Turn It On! Turn It Up! is a worthwhile workout, but you’d expect a little more sweat. B
