Catches A Groove And Never Lets Go....
J. Dunn | VA United States | 03/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first purchased this album around 1978 when I was turning on to the Blues in a major league way, and it just embodied everything tasteful and tuneful that I loved about the music. Joe Young and Jimmy Dawkins both hit a nice steady playful groove on this record. The guitar work on every tune is masterful, and as blues albums go the lyrics and singing are all top notch. There is a nice mix of jazz and soul factored in to the album (as the title would indicate), but it never strays far from the blues bullseye. Jordan Sandke and Dennis Lansing add some really delectible trumpet and sax throughout, and Big Moose Walker has some real sweet turns on the 88s and organ. This is an album you can play over and over again and never get tired of, as the guitar playing just seduces you with it's incredible righteousness. Believe me, there are NO bad cuts on this baby! If you love cruising late at night on the open highway listening to the Blues, buy this fantastic record immediately. Your life will be instantly enriched. The last song on the disk, called Honky Tonk, is the only instrumental and is just magical! Get into it ASAP! A real keeper...."
