Samoa Wilson, with the Jim Kweskin Band
LIVE THE LIFE
(Blix Street)

Jim Kweskin, whose history goes back to the birth of the Cambridge folk scene, said he revived his respected jug band and his career a few years ago for just one reason: to introduce listeners to the young vocalist Samoa Wilson. Thatís understandable. Wilson has a sweet, soft-edged guileless voice thatís easy on the ears, whether sheís delivering her own heartbreaker "Sun Going Down" (made more poignant by crying slide dobro) or sashaying through standards ranging from a blithe, fiddle-driven "What a Little Moonlight Can Do" to the Ma Rainey homage "Oh Papa Blues." The expert band get turned loose, too, with the instrumentals "Organ Grinderís Swing" and Duke Ellingtonís "C Jam Blues." Which makes this album well-balanced and thoroughly entertaining.

(Samoa Wilson appears this Saturday, October 16, at Club Passim, 47 Palmer Street in Harvard Square; call 617-492-7679.)
