This is the real deal
Kavity Killer | denver, colorado United States | 07/24/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Too jazzy for hardcore blues heads, maybe too bluesy for the jazz dudes, this album is the ultimate missing link. Joe Williams sings the blues with a looseness, creativity of phrasing, and pure joy that is rarely heard amongst more traditional blues singers. He toys with the phrase, mutates it, goes way out of time, and manages to make it all sound brilliant. The soloists are all top notch and Jack McDuff especially brings some tasty stuff to the table. Extended jams, some great bass soloing, timeless blues themes, and a lot of innuendo are all here for the taking. Please people, do yourselves a huge favor and throw away that Lyle Lovette album you think you are so cool listening to and get this. This guy is so cool, he's almost from another planet. He's a type of cool that you've never even heard of because you've been sold some bill of goods from your local Sam Goody, or (worse) MTV. This is not some CD that your frat buddy turned you onto. this is not some "jam band" flavor of the month. This is art at its finest. Something you can be proud to have in your Cd collection (unlike that Hootie and the Blowfish CD you bought back in 96 or 97). Just trust me, I know it only has a few reviews written on it, but that alone is a type of ringing endorsement is it not? Long live the blues. Long live great art."

Remarkable Performance

"You will no go wrong with this one. Highly recommended for jazz & blues lovers. All the instruments and vocals with the exception of electric organ are very well captured. 2 or 3 passages when the organist hits the keys with force shows up as distortion from my speakers but this may be highly subjective.
The level of performance and content is 1st class."
