Freddie Roach, “Good Move!,” Blue Note Records. I don’t know too much about Roach, but he’s a gently swinging organist with a nice warm tone and a passel of improvised licks on the basic blues and jazz standards he played back in 1963 when this album was recorded. Blue Mitchell and Hank Mobley are along for the ride on trumpet and tenor sax, respectively, and the songs they play are the highlights. Really, though, all of this is quite good.

Rosanne Cash, “Rules of Travel,” Capitol Records. It’s been too damn long since she last put out a record. This sounds like prime Rosanne, which means it’s great, of course. She’s one of the finest singers of the last 25 years, and she can write songs, too. Guest appearances by Sheryl Crow, Teddy Thompson, and Rosanne’s daddy Johnny Cash are all welcome, as well. I expect to listen to this album a lot this year. It’s not released until late March, so keep it in your memory banks.

Piney Brown and Eddie Mack, “Hoot & Holler Saturday Night!,” Delmark Records. Two largely forgotten jump blues practitioners from the classic late 40s period. Mack is a little bit more spirited than Brown, but both these guys made some strong, exuberant and powerful sides. This collection is plenty fun.
