One could expect a group of road- and studio-seasoned players- a group of long tenure together and a couple of Grammy snatches to boot- to turn out a set of rock-solid tracks as a matter of course.  The Phantom Blues Band raise the ante with cut-above song selection including some very respectable in-house contributions.  Keyboardist Mike Finnigan drops the airplay-worthy “Better But Not Good” as well as a standout vocal and piano performance on the late Louisiana roots artist David Egan’s “Blues How They Linger”.  Saxophonist Joe Sublett’s “Wingin’ My Way” is an ear-catcher as well.
