Time isn't something you usually hear, but you will hear years of experience on "This Time," an infectiously compelling CD by the Bay Area's David Landon Band. With three gifted veteran musicians, guitarist-vocalist Landon has crafted the kind of rocking blues album that will make you think you're hearing the group live. The 12 cuts showcase variations in blues, from the gently acoustic "Goodbye My Friend," to the rollicking country-rock flavored "One Hundred Years" to the funk-steeped "Think Twice." Landon's fiery finger work ignites "Ducks in a Row," while Tony Stead contributes sublime keyboard work on the Hammond B3 on "Think Twice" and other cuts. With bassist Steve Evans and drummer Randy Hayes rounding out the quartet, the David Landon Band proves itself a sweet, tight ensemble.
