Review: Nu-Blu soars on new bluegrass album 'All The Way'

Bluegrass group Nu-Blu will release their newest album "All The Way" on September 16, and this record is an asset to any music listener's CD collection.

They will release it via their record label, Rural Rhythm Records. It opens with "That's What Makes The Bluegrass Blue," a dynamic vocal collaboration with bluegrass queen Rhonda Vincent. It is followed by the moving ballad "A Little Good News," where lead singer Carolyn Routh displays her gentle and heavenly vocals. They continue with the upbeat "Rhythm of the Train," which features strong harmonies and rich bluegrass instrumentation. The title track, the soothing"All The Way" is yet another crystalline vocal by Carolyn, where the listener could easily recall Grammy-winning vocalist Alison Krauss. "Black Jack," which runs a little over two minutes, showcases the band's instrumental prowess. "Isn't She" is a mellow yet smooth vocal, while "Forgiveness" is a haunting ballad that will give one goosebumps. "It's Not That Cold In Montana " features stunning violin and the addicting banjo-playing on there helps elevates it to a higher level. "Heavy Cross To Bear" is a pure and calming vocal performance by Carolyn. It closes with the remarkable track, "Jesus and Jones," which is worth the price of the CD alone. They collaborate with a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, "The Soul Man" himself, Mr. Sam Moore. The Verdict Overall, Nu-Blu delivers on their newest studio effort. It is warm, acoustic and backed with high-quality lyrics, instrumentation and vocals. All four musicians have done a superb job. Well done. It garners 4 out of 5 stars.
