Bobby Pierce: The Long Road Back

Bobby Pierce has been M.I.A. since his last recording 34 years ago. Resurrected by B3 maven Pete Fallico for his organ specialty label, he sounds as soulful and burning as ever on originals like the strolling blues “Bobby’s Back,” the rollicking “One for Duff and Dink” and the boppish title track, along with a swinging cover of “Invitation” and an earthy shuffle take on “John Brown’s Body.” Saxophonist Ricky Woodard and guitarist Frank Potenza spark Pierce’s comeback with outstanding solo work.
