Review:

Albert and Gage - Jumpin' Tracks

San Antonio Express News "Weekender"  June 28, 1997

"Albert and Gage love working together. It shines brightly in performances."

     Christine Albert has long been able to produce engaging, thoughtful music with a country edge. Since teaming with guitarist, vocalist and pianist Chris Gage, a man with a lovely voice and a deft musical hand, Albert's music has a bit more of a much-needed edge. The pair, backed by the monster talent of percussionist Paul Pearcy and bassist Dave Heath, are celebrating the release of the album "Jumpin' Tracks". It features a number of tunes written or co-written by Gage and Albert, plus the Butch Hancock tune that gave the group it's name and enough surprises - James Brown's "I'll Go Crazy", Eddie "Guitar Slim" Jones' "I Got Over It" - to keep the pigeonholers off balance. Albert and Gage love working together. It shines brightly in performances.  - Jim Beal
