The Palms at Crown
A cool 21 albums down the line, Joe Camilleri's The Black Sorrows
are at the peak of their game with Citizen John
, the new album with its roots in the familiar terrain of sweet, platinum radio rhythm and blues and dark reflections of modern times.
So rolls The Black Sorrows' undulating landscape of human toil and folly; joy and sorrow; love and loss, from the high plains daydreaming of ‘Worlds Away
’ to the palm-fronded bandstand jazz of ‘Play It Sentimental
is Joe's 49th album as bandleader of combos as celebrated as Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons, the Revelators and Bakelite Radio — but be warned, this kind of war-medal talk isn't really his bag. “It's all very nice to get a pat on the back and 'Hey I saw you in '78,' but I want people to judge me on this album. This is the album I've just made and it's the hardest album I've ever made, on many levels. It’s about moving forward. To me, it’s always about moving forward.”
Don't miss your chance to see The Black Sorrows with The Horns of Leroy live at The Palms!
