When veteran soul behemoth Burke died suddenly last October in an Amsterdam airport, he was there to gig with De Dijk, his Dutch collaborators on the follow-up to last year’s Grammy-nominated triumph Nothing’s Impossible. Hold On Tight‘s horn-spiked blues-rock is outfitted with more raucous textures than its balladic predecessor, yet De Dijk manage to smooth out Burke’s craggy, weathered croak. King Solomon, R.I.P. B+
