Fish/Taylor/Wilde: Leaving Chicago
Samantha Fish, Cassie Taylor, Dani Wilde: Girls with Guitars (Ruf)

Nothing like naming your album with a product description, right?

This lead/bass/rhythm trio (with drummer Jamie Little) bridge sultry blues, a soul-kiss and rock'n'roll blues (bassist Cassie the daughter of the great Otis).

Wilde's Stax/Aretha/sexy vocals impress and she's a double threat, pulling out mercurial and razor sharp lead solos.

They deliver fine originals, and a feisty cover of the Stones' Bitch.

'Nuff said.

Play loud.

Like the sound of this? Then try this.
