Synopsis

Album Description
American music has long had a tradition of piano players who can pound the keys as if they were dangerous -- or caress the ivories as if they were made of finest crystal; a tradition of female vocalists who can shout and growl one minute -- move souls with passionate ballads the next; a tradition of reed-abusing, hot-honking, bar-walking tenor saxophone players. American music has not, however, witnessed a confluence of those particular traditions in one person -- until Deanna Bogart. [In 1990] Bogart, with high-powered guest including Ron Holloway and guitarist Danny Gatton, recorded and released her debut album Out to Get You on Blind Pig Records. A smoking mixture of boogie woogie, blues and originals showed fans honest, sweaty no-gimmicks music that heart, soul, spirit, fire, and fun were still alive and well. This new album showcases Bogart's writing ability as well as her well-established ways with piano and sax. Nice of the 13 tracks are originals, running the gamut from the raveup 'Backstage Boogie' to the achingly beautiful 'My Blue Mood' to just about everything in between. While much of what passes for music today is generated by computers, and excitement by hype, and talent by the latest trend, Deanna Bogart are her band generate enough of the real thing to power a big city. The American music traditions continue. --Jim. E. Beal Jr., San Antonio Express News

Another Splendid Mix
Rocannon MacGregor | Glendale, CA USA | 11/30/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm listening to this album as I write. I have all of Deanna's albums as of today. Downloaded every single one. This woman knows how to put the juice into every number she writes/sings/plays. On Crossing Borders her piano play is even more refined than usual. Spotless performances on every cut. Don't try to figure out what genre she fits in. Just make a new one especially for her."
