Kevin Bryan delivers his verdict on some of this week's CD releases.

The Neville Brothers,"Great American Radio Vol.3-Telluride Jazz Festival,2008" (Floating World)- This splendid mid-price collection captures the late Art Neville and his gifted siblings at something approaching their soulful best in a live performance which was captured for posterity at a Colorado jazz festival in June 2008. The eclectic spirit of this venerable musical institution's native New Orleans was reflected in a vibrant setlist showcasing the Neville's inimitable covers of classic compositions such as Professor Longhair's "Tipitina," Van Morrison's "Crazy Love" and Sam Cooke's prophetic protest song,"A Change Is Gonna Come."

Andy White,"Time is a Buffalo in the Art of War" (Floating World)- Belfast singer-songwriter Andy White has been plying his trade with power,passion and committment for more than three decades now, and this curiously titled new offering maintains the impeccable standards which have become his trademark since the release of his first EP,"Religious Persuasion," on Stiff Records long long ago in 1985. Andy has never been afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve as far as social comment is concerned, and the supremely articulate lyrical content of "Time is a Buffalo.." reflects his firmly held belief that modern humanity is going to hell in a handcart via stand-out tracks such as "Armageddon #4" and "Fire Engines, Blue Trains and Trucks."

"Brian Davison's Every Which Way" (Cherry Red/Esoteric)- Cherry Red's latest CD re-issue shines a very welcome and long overdue spotlight on the only album recorded by the majestic Every Which Way. The band had been formed by drummer Brian Davison after the sad demise of The Nice in 1970, enlisting the support of fine sidemen such as vocalist Graham Bell and flute and sax virtuoso Jeff Peach to underpin his sterling efforts to create a jazz tinged brand of prog rock rather reminiscent of Steve Winwood's Traffic as they served up a batch of richly rewarding Bell compositions led by "Bed Ain't What It Used To Be," "The Light" and "Castle Sand."
