Synopsis

Amazon.com
The last time the great Jimmy Rogers held a guitar was during the final takes of "One Room Country Shack," the eighth track on this rocking second album from latter-day guitar virtuoso Jimmy D. Lane, Rogers's son. Passing the torch as well with his work on "Another Mule Kicking in My Stall," the elder Jimmy joined the similarly gifted guitarist Hubert Sumlin and drummer Sam Lay to support Jimmy D.'s follow-up to his debut CD, Long Gone. Despite his lineage, Lane hadn't decided to become a professional musician until he heard Jimi Hendrix's "Hey Joe," after which he put down his jackhammer and picked up his axe. Influenced not only by Hendrix, but also by Albert King, Albert Collins, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy D. has a power rock groove to go with his deeper, darker, bluesier groove that's showcased here on "Four O'Clock in the Morning" and Howlin' Wolf's powerful "Big House." --Alan Greenberg
 

CD Reviews

A great blues discovery.

"I first heard Jimmy featured on KKFI here in Kansas City. Well I picked up this album immediately and have not been disappointed. It has taken up permanent residence in my CD player lately. What we have here is a rare combination of powerful blues vocalization and guitar mastery. Its this combination of talents which makes Jimmy a unique experience. Whats even more impressive is that most of the tracks on the album are original.- a refreshing change from most modern bluesmen rehashing the same old standards. I have not heard him live yet, but I'll be there next time he's in KC."
Another one to listen to until the disc goes blank

"Jimmy's latest release, Legacy, taps deeper into his supply of Blues than any realeased before. This album proves once again that he is one of the few vessels by which old Blues and new Blues will meet in a beautiful collision. His guitar work allows the listener to feel the intensity or subtleness of the notes themselves, a feat brought off only by players with TRUE Soul who know how to mix it with their playing. Also very pleasing to the mind and ears is the apperance of "The Old Man" (Jimmy Rogers) who joins "Little Jimmy" on two tunes, Rogers also adds a grand sendoff of his son into the world of new Blues, knowing that he will truly be one of the Founding Fathers of the next generation. If you are to buy any Blues, buy this album, listen to it till you can hear nothing else, then, listen to it a few more times. Thanks to Jimmy for lettin' us in on this one, you are a True Master..."

"Jimmy's finest album in his short career. He doesn't really play Blues but his songs are well crafted and his vocal prowess is coming on strong. His guitar playing with his Dad(the great Jimmy Rogers) has encompassed all styles as is shown on this album. He can also play some of the meanest Jimi Hendrix this side of the late SRV. His Dad also sings two of the great classic blues songs on this CD as he is passing the torch on to Jim. His new album comes out after the 1st of 2002. Enjoy this one until then and definitely go see him LIVE. You won't be disappointed!!!!!!!!"
