LastCall One last musical statement. One more dance on the New York City skyline. One last call for Black 47.
New York’s Black 47 released Last Call on March 4, 2014 and it is just that: their last call. After 25 years the band made a decision to stand down while they are still going strong and to reinforce that fact made a final musical statement with a solid 13-track album.

For the loyal Black 47 fan and new listeners alike, Last Call beckons the ears into a fire of music still burning strong 25 years after the band’s first recording. It’s fresh, relevant, and not repetitive while keeping strong roots in Irish heritage. By no means does it sound like the band has plans of standing down following this album; however it does bring things full circle by incorporating a little bit of everything from the styles the band has composed with over their career – rock, punk, reggae, and even a splash of Latin music for something new. In line with the band’s Irish Republican sympathies, the lyrics on some songs are not shy on political and social commentary.

A strength of the album in its composition is a tightness that can be heard in the rhythm section. This is an element that hasn’t been much of a focal point of a Black 47 album since Home of the Brave 20 years ago. Frontman Larry Kirwan encouraged Joe Burcaw to be more upfront with his bass lines on the recording, something that’s particularly noticeable on “Let the People In” featuring a short slap-bass breakdown in the middle of the song. “Just go for it Bearclaw!” was Kirwan’s attitude on it. On each song, it is hard to miss how much this element adds to the overall experience of listening to the album, filling out a rich and robust sound. In fact, it makes listening to the album with the volume dial turned up one more notch rather fun.

It is worth mentioning one of the key elements that has defined Black 47’s sound over the years. On Last Call, the trombone, sax, uilleann pipes, and flute lines are not shy in defining their role in the arrangements. Whether fast-paced technical licks that weave in and out of each other or subtle harmonies that compliment the core of the band, this section is plays a vital role in the sound of the album.
