This is the third collaboration between gruff guitarist/singer Hat Fitz and sultry singer Cara Robinson, and it is their most cohesive album to date. The challenge for this unusual duo has always been whether or not they could maintain the insistent drive of Hat Fitz's aggressive, North Mississippi-influenced blues with the elegance of Cara's voice without having it undercut by the occasional recklessness of Fitz's old style. On Do Tell, everything falls into place. Cara's voice is as seductive as ever, and Fitz's guitar is more precise than I have ever heard it before. Even his singing, in that gruff, Larry Keel-type way (bluegrass fans-- check him out), seems more controlled. But there is still just enough danger to everything Hat Fitz does that the excitement is still there. In the end, this album does what any yin-yang pairing needs to do, combining the best of both participants. The arrangements are somewhat larger, although the backing band members never get in the way. I could stand to hear a bit more of the Celtic influences, which have been toned down. However, the duo has expanded their sonic palette to include more rock and some gospel influences, so at least they are maintaining their eclecticism. Do Tell may just be a solid blueprint for the future of Hat Fitz & Cara Robinson. It took a while for everything to fall into place, but now it has. Fans of the late, great Bob Brozman who want to know how he would have sounded alongside a truly gifted vocalist, this is about as close as you'll get.
