Singer/songwriter/guitarist Chris Henderson's group Bronze Radio Return sounds like a promising jam band on its debut EP. The music is that familiar blend of rock, blues, and country that dates back to the '60s and has been played in various mixtures by many earlier artists. More recent fans of the genre will be reminded of the Dave Matthews Band; older ones will think of the Elvin Bishop Group and may associate Henderson's gruff vocals with a slightly lower register Leo Sayer. The rhythm section is funky, and the guitars play tasty licks to support Henderson's melodic tunes, and although the tracks never break the five-minute barrier, it's easy to imagine that they could serve as vehicles for much longer jams on-stage.
