Once the future of acoustic finger-picked blues, Corey Harris turns to reggae for his ninth studio album.

Once the future of acoustic finger-picked blues, Corey Harris turns to reggae for his ninth studio album.

Firmly entrenched in what has become known as the roots reggae style – basically the rhythmic style of the music’s critical heyday, the early ’70s – his tenor has the appropriate sweetness. And he assimilates the lyrical subject matter quite well, writing with conviction about the tried-and-true reggae subjects: faith, injustice and unity. A pleasant listen, “Zion Crossroads” is the result of being inspired by genre’s past – traces of Burning Spear, Horace Andy, Toots Hibbert and Peter Tosh hang over this effort – rather than a declaration for the future.
