A mostly live album, Mrs. White's Party has more polish and pizzazz than most studio sets. In fact, it is often difficult to tell which tracks were recorded where. Aside from a bit of cavernous echo which comes off the large rooms that JTH consistently fills and wild enthusiastic tell-tale cheering from the band's adoring fans, the songs themselves are impressively clean and well-balanced.
Though it is obvious that the band thrives in live performance, the energy and fun pulses through the entire album. The album crackles to life with the opening bouncer "Can't Get Enough," which is substantially supported throughout by Ethan Mackler's hard-pulled bass and which ends with a brief but pleasantly surprising vocoder break.
Track four the album's longest, at a solo-filled ten minutes is the light and rhythmic "From Inside You," which features a trippy guitar fill and full, echoey vocal harmonies.
The jam breaks featuring Backstrom and current organ grinder Paul Wolstencroft are both free but impressively coherent. Transforming flawlessly into the bass-driven growly guitar swirl of "Vertigo," the band stays together for this free-form instrumental odyssey, only crumbling to crackly cacophony on very rare occasions. Two guitar chops, and listeners are taken to "Easy Street," a gospel-y clap-along full of happy, hopeful harmonies and broken only by another wondrous Wolstencroft whirl.
Propelled by the consistently vibrant and varied percussion of JTH 's fourth force, drummer Greg Vasso"Sowelu," rises from the silence to provide a wild and only occasionally sloppy instrumental intro to the a bluesy falsetto funk flight "Invisible. The party almost over, the album closes with the appropriately titled "Turn Myself Back Home," a countrified jaunt which is sure to send Mrs. White's guests humming and dancing out the My Favorite Things - ElewReginald Veal, Jeff Tain Watts - And To The Republic, tapping their toes Cant Get Enough - Jiggle The Handle - Mrs Whites Party the Mediterranean vibe of the "hidden" coda.
