JR BLU: Tru Blu (William Fonville/Capital A) Three Stars *** Solid Southern Soul Debut by a New Male Vocalist. (11-18-14)

Cleveland-born JR Blue scored the #6 single on Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 "BREAKING" Southern Soul Singles Review for June 2014 with the song “She’s Been Good." The song gained your Daddy B. Nice's praise for its "David Ruffin-like vocal and sweet Van Morrison-style saxophone fills." (See Vanthology, a tribute to Van Morrison by Little Milton, William Bell, Syl Johnson and other soul singers.) "She's Been Good" went on to pick up some Delta-area radio air play for the young performer, whose writing and production skills are even more accomplished than his vocals. Blu (born William Fonville) grew up playing sax, and live horns--both trumpets and saxophones--along with live guitars, keyboards and background singers reinforce the quality of many of the tunes. The CD was recorded at the (Willie) Mitchell Family Royal Studios in Memphis. DBN.
