Album Review | BLUES ROCK
Gary Clark Jr., ‘Blak and Blu’
For the past two years, Texas guitarist Clark has been burnishing his national image with festival appearances and an EP that hinted at greatness. “Blak and Blu” pays off; it’s not a perfect album, but it is bold and exciting. Clark uses rocking blues as a base from which to explore R&B, soul, funk, and hip-hop.
