Rattle My Cage, the latest CD from Patricia Vonne rocks. Scheduled to be released this September 10th, the title track sets the pace in a Pat Benatar sounding jam. But let's not forget this is a Texas CD, with collaborations from Alejandro Escovedo, Rosie Flores and the Doyle Bramhall. And this shows through the next four tracks - particularly in Que Maravilla - my favorite track. She has that sexy, mesmerizing voice when singing in Spanish. Then there's the simple, but powerful Bitter Need, just Vonne and the piano.The last three tracks are pure fun, starting with the jazzed up Paris Trance and then transitioning to some Tex-Mex in Tequileros and the instrumental Mexicali De Chispa. Pretty cool stuff. Cheers.
