Lusty, romping jump blues and boogies from 1947-1949 that team Big Joe Turner with his longtime piano partner Pete Johnson and a coterie of solid L.A. sessioneers. The two dozen entries include party rockers like "Wine-O-Baby Boogie," "Christmas Date Boogie," "I Don't Dig It," and an incredibly raunchy two-part "Around the Clock Blues" (where Turner spends his time in a by-the-hour sexual tryst).
Rhythm of the World is an uneven offering from Steve Quinzi. There are some smooth, quiet passages that are quite nice. For the most part, however, Quinzi's compositions and sound design are formulaic and unimaginative. He juxtaposes beautiful melodies and symphonic synths with hyped up drum machines. He makes that mistake repeatedly. That combination has worked for some artists. It misses her -- by a mile.
