Music Review: The Mavericks gallop back into the picture with new album, 'In Time'

  • Print

The Mavericks, "In Time" (Valory)

One of country music's most enduring bands, the Mavericks return with "In Time," their first new album in a decade. Their mix of Latin horns and rhythms, crisp telecaster leads and the Roy Orbison-like voice of Raul Malo remains as engaging as ever.

In the 1990s, the Mavericks drew attention with an incendiary live show that had fans jumping like no other Nashville act. That uplifting live sound is the focus of "In Time," which transcends genres by creating a timeless blend rooted in country music and early rock 'n' roll.

Malo brings operatic drama to a voice that can soar with power or caress with romanticism. Original drummer Paul Deakin and bassist Robert Reynolds expertly handle grooves that perfectly set up guitarist Eddie Perez, keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden and a smoking horn section. "In Time" is a welcome reminder of why the Mavericks have always been so special.
