Pasadena Weekly OTIS TAYLOR, Clovis People, Vol. 3 – (4 stars out of 5)

The Colorado trance-bluesman hones the lean storytelling skills and electric drama that distinguished career-best albums “White African” and “Respect the Dead” on another compelling set that expands the blues template. Taylor’s impressionistic lyrics sketch out his fascination with individual stories that comprise history, conveying taut emotion and provocative scenes with choice words cradled in atmospheric, minor-key settings from guitarist Gary Moore, bassist/daughter Cassie Taylor, cornetist Ron Miles and pedal steel player Chuck Campbell.
