Marcus Malone - A Better Man album review

The best Bluesy you can get this month

TODO alt text

In recent times, Detroit bandleader Marcus Malone has been playing his A Better Man album front-to-back live, which takes some balls and speaks volumes about his confidence in this material. There’s a whiff of career-best about these tracks, from the route-one muscle of Too Long Gone to the lighter touch and piano flourishes of Shine Your Light – and for Malone, that’s praise indeed.
