Corey explores acoustic blues, reggae, Caribbean and more in a remarkable, forward-thinking concept album.

Harris's third album, Greens from the Garden, may be the first record since Robert Cray's 1986 masterpiece Strong Persuader to popularize a fresh, personal take on the genre. Harris's music reaches for the roots of the Delta and rips them out by the stem. Caribbean and New Orleans influences are paramount, as in the New Orleans party music of "Eh La Bas" and the instrumental "Congo Square Rag," both of which employ horn sections. But Harris hardly stops there, taking country blues in even more adventurous directions: "Basehead" madly dances across an African musical continuum that runs from Delta blues to late-'60s James Brown to '80s hip hop. Pulling country blues into the present, the anti-crack song combines piercing guitar leads, gut-bucket rhythms, and James Brown-style background vocals. "You know you step on that crack/Black/You gonna break your back!" the chorus shouts, riffing on the Godfather. It's extraordinary, and he nearly tops it 15 tracks later with a sublime reggae version of the gospel standard "Just a Closer Walk with Thee." “ Chris Herrington
