Songwriter Sandy Ross' new CD, Coloring Outside the Lines, takes off from where her last CD, Portraits of Innocence, leaves off. This fully-arranged, but totally acoustic recording, styles songs that range from mid-forties jazz-blues through early rock 'n' roll, and on up from 60s folk into 90s contemporary folk styles and topics. Somewhere between the lines of jazz and the blues, blues and rock, rock and folk, and, gospel-folk and the blues there's an area of rich grays that everyone seems to just comfortably call, THE BLUES. This recording musically weaves in and out of all those lines, in styling, and lyrically paints in colors vivid with issues, philosophies, and attitudes. If you're already a fan of Sandy's you'll love this CD. If you're a fan of the blues, you'll love this CD. If you love acoustic music but haven't as yet discovered acoustic blues, get ready to make a real discovery!
