Kathryn Grimm has one of the most unique takes on a blues album that I have ever heard. A powerful female artist who is not afraid to let her colors show. Grimm is musically committed to her skill, and it shows in her incredible crafting of each and every song on her new album Blues Tools. I was led into the album with the song Best of Me, which I found to be a enriching mix of blues and pop iced with soul. However, there is a thin veil of soul layered over the entire album, thanks to the keyboard and saxophone work.

Throughout the whole album, and especially on the title track Blues Tools, I found gratification in the ironic feel of the album. It wasn’t the standard down trodden blues, more like gaiety. There was a much more positive spin on songs like God is Testing Me and You Make Me So Happy.

Grimm is a down to earth artist who belongs in the classiest club you could find. Grimm is fun, mature, and certainly something I could see myself in a nice restaurant with my wife, or out dancing and having a lively time. Even the upbeat Love Gun had me toe tapping and head bobbing. Grimm has a sultry 50s feel to her music, which comes out in songs like Miss Celie’s Blues. Grimm even branches out to incorporate some World Music styles in songs like Talking to the Wind.

If you’re looking for a new and sweet twist on a classic genre, the I would suggest that you grab Kathryn Grimm’s latest record, Blues Tools.
