The telling moment on Denver quartet Dressy Bessy’s third CD occurs midway through, when Tammy Ealom sings ”Girl, You Shout!” – and doesn’t, not even once. Ealom is one cool customer, and her bandmates know their best music arises from showcasing her in all her multitracked glory. That, and little things – like a well-tuned guitar (”Baby Six String”) and the way Ealom repeats ”blue, blue, blue” in ”Georgie Blue” until the triad becomes a name, a color, an emotion.
