As the well-versed sons of the late, great musician/producer Jim Dickinson, guitarist Luther and drummer Cody Dickinson have become guardians of hill country blues and American roots music. Their particular genius is in continually finding new ways to explore these traditions. Their 2013 set World Boogie is Coming, titled after one of their father's more famous expressions (and he had more than a few!), was built around field recordings of north Mississippi legends Othar Turner and R.L. Burnside; in 2019 they released Up and Rolling, inspired by photos of area musicians from a lost roll of film taken by Wyatt McSpadden. For Set Sail the brothers, along with bassist Jesse Williams, have befriended another second-generation musician, singer Lamar Williams Jr.—son of the Allman Brothers bassist (no relation to Jesse). According to Luther Dickinson, being sons of famous musicians was their bonding connection: "I believe music is a form of communion with our loved ones and conjuring this vibe with members of musical families can be inspirational… We never had to figure out what it means and takes to be a musician."

The primeval voodoo rhythms that are in the brother's DNA drive "Rabbit Foot" where Williams sings, "Don't spell my name on a stone/ Give me an unmarked grave and a box of bones/ When my spirits free to roam." "See the Moon," an upbeat, '70s-inspired funk groove is a welcome new flavor with Sharisse Norman joining Williams on vocals. The history-conscious brothers bring in 82-year-old Stax veteran William Bell to convincingly sing "Never Want to Be Kissed," his ode to a final kiss with a dying lost love. In general though, this is not one of the brothers' more distinguished collections of originals. While the playing is tight, Williams is an uninspiring amateur, more of a talker than a singer with little range, and often lacking any emotion. "Juicy Juice" whose title screams funk, is set to an elastic '70s rhythm but is oddly low key and also handicapped by silly lyrics about a "classy city stoner chick" whose "juice is the truth." Williams flatlines in the slow "Bumpin'," sounding as if he's reading from a page. Few of the tunes are memorable, particularly closer "Authentic," a righteous plea for sanity and respect; with lyrics about "guns in the streets" it's is an overly simplistic message song with Williams' sing-talking over a weak musical foundation: "On the American tree of music roots/ Each branch bears a different fruit/ Music runs in the blood of our family in/ Music and love is what I believe." This rare misstep from Cody and Luther is missing their usual confidence and ferocity, perhaps the evidence that urban-leaning funk is one subgenre the talented duo just does not feel. © Robert Baird/Qobuz

10 Legends of the Blues

For over a century, blues is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records. It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.

Joni Mitchell: the Blue Period

An immaculate masterpiece of 70's folk, 'Blue' celebrates its 50th birthday this year. And it hasn't aged a day. But why are artists the world over still so fascinated by this fourth, intimate album by the Canadian singer-songwriter?
