When Delbert McClinton announces with his latest album that he has Room To Breathe, he sure ain't kidding. After more than four decades of making music, McClinton is breathing freely with the confidence and energy of an artist who knows that he has mastered his game. Still basking in the glow of a new Grammy Award, he has followed up what The Wall Street Journal declared his 'best recording ever' -- 2001's Nothing Personal -- with a set that displays even greater muscle, smarts, charm and soul. A listen to the 12 tracks on Room To Breathe handily backs the contention that even after enjoying the best year of his long career, McClinton is now poised to triumph further. From the swampy and rollicking opening strains of 'Same Kinda Crazy' to the album's closing jump blues visit to 'New York City,' Room To Breathe plays like the night of your life in God's own roadhouse.
