MAKIN' THE DEAL GO DOWN
The long awaited 4th CD album from J.B. Kline..."Makin' The Deal Go Down" is here!! J.B. worked hard and long to try and produce sounds to equal his heralded early efforts, and we think he has done it! Like his previous CDs, this one contains songs with an assortment of feels and styles...with R&B, Blues, NJ Rock, and Country being his most obvious influences.
The title cut is a solid, show stopping dance cut, with lyric references to his early days growing up in Lambertville, NJ. In fact, another one, "A Summer Night (In Old Lambertville)" is dedicated to his home town. "Dress Of Faded Red" is about women of the night he knew while living in NYC. In addition, "I Have His Guitar" is for an old lost friend and a new one!!
J.B. Kline's second album release..."BELVIDERE LINE" absolutely contains some of his best material!! The title track is written about the old train that used to run through J.B.'s home town Lambertville NJ. Also on the album are "Carolina Angel" and the surprise favorite cut, "Fool To Make You Cry"!
Also you will hear "Midnight Move" penned by Chris Chadwick, which is a live favorite, and nine more soulful tunes! This album has a more live feel in general, and more reflects J.B. Kline's stage show than his previous effort Music Mountain, which is more acoustic.
"Absolutely one of the best CDs we've heard this year!" ...Philadelphia Gazette "Dynamite...I got some more respect for the J.B. Kline Band" ...You Tube
These are a sample of some of the comments this release has generated!! Absolutely sure you will like it too...
See you on the Belvidere Line!!
The cover of the "Music Mountain" album, pictures the famous Lambertville Music Circus. From it's location on Music Mountain, Lambertville, N.J., there emanated some of the greatest music and entertainment the area has ever experienced!
As a boy, J.B. Kline spent a lot of time there. Friends with the owner, he hung backstage with artists such as B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, and Paul Butterfield.
Music Mountain was, and is, a magical place!

"This album is his most soulful so far, and we feel it contains some of his best writing!" -Phila. Gazette
The title track is a superior rocker, and a crowd favorite... Along w/ some top grade soul tunes("Things That People Say", etc.), a great song about the river (Down By The River, Along The Canal) penned by Jerry Fiess, some deep blues, a Lucinda Williams favorite, and six more, this album is packed with punch! The listener is carried along on a heartfelt and passionate ride from beginning to end!!
The "All Of Your Love" album takes a firm grip on where J.B. Kline's music is coming from, where it is going, and most importantly, where it is now!! It gives you a good look into J.B.'s head, and a great look at the talented people working with him! Gotta have "All Of Your Love"!!
