    Tito Jackson – Under Your Spell [[2021)

    Tito Jackson: Under Your Spell
    [[Gulf Coast Records/Hillside Global)
    LP/CD/DL
    Out Friday 6th August 2021

    Tito Jackson [[Jackson 5) releases his second studio solo album, Under Your Spell this Friday on 6th August. The eleven-track blues album includes features from special guests: George Benson, Joe Bonamassa, Eddie Levert, Marlon Jackson, Kenny Neal, Bobby Rush, Claudette King and Stevie Wonder.
    Under Your Spell is an uplifting blues album which combines Tito’s Jackson 5 Motown side [[Wheels Keep Turning). His new modern funk, soul and deep blues side [[Love One Another, You’re Gonna Push Me Too Far, Under Your Spell) works as a really eloquent, and complementary merger. The debut single off the album, Love One Another [[released 9th July) is an uplifting, harmonious bluesy antidote for today’s times of apparent division, featuring the vocals of Tito, Marlon Jackson, Bobby Rush and Kenny Neal, with Stevie Wonder on the harmonica.

    The main stand-out on the album has to be the cover of blues and guitar legend BB King’s 1964 classic, Rock Me Baby. Tito is joined on the song by BB’s daughter Claudette King, who is a sensational blues singer too. She really adds to the track. The album is ridden with nostalgia, taking you back to a time of blues, 70s funk, 60s Motown and soul, and by including the original legends from back in those times, it really adds that edge of authenticity.
    Songwriting duo Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, who have written worldwide hits for The Jacksons, came out of retirement to write All In The Family Blues for Tito on this album. The features work as great additions throughout the album, and although Under Your Spell does have some stand-outs [[Rock My Baby, Love One Another and Gonna Push Me Too Far), and Tito’s voice and guitar sound amazing, it is missing a bit of variety.
    It is very uplifting, but I feel as though it’s missing a sad song, a moping bluesy affair – just to mix it up a little bit.

    I'm so looking forward to hearing this release. Tito has always had serious talent and
    with the artists accompanying him it sounds interesting to me. I'll see if I agree with
    the review about the sad song element. Everybody can't be Son House or John Lee Hooker...
