Delta Groove artist: RJ Mischo - Make It Good - New Release Review

Got a hot new release, Make It Good, from RJ Mischo. The CD is chocked full of 13 original tracks. Trouble Belt starts the romp with Mischo on vocals and Johnny Moeller and Nick Curran on guitars. The Frozen Pickle is up next with some terrific harp work from Mischo. Mischo apparently learned how to get his full-tone from Lynwood Slim. The indisputable Johnny Moeller throws down a great Texas style guitar solo on this track and with the assistance of Nick Curran, Ronnie James Weber, Nick Connolly and Wes Starr. Papa's S.T. Special is a harp whoop train type song and demonstrates Mischo's technique well. Minnesota Woman, a cool shuffle track, is a strait up Chicago style blues with Mischo back on vocal and harp and Moeller keeps the back of the track filled with intricate rhythm guitar as well as some nice straight guitar solo's. Not Your Good Man is a great slower blues track, again Chicago style, giving Moeller a great opportunity to shine and of course featuring the great tone of Mischo. I Got You Covered takes it up a notch to an almost blues rocker. The Biscuit Is back takes the jump route and sets the stage perfectly for great harp and guitar work by both men. Elevator Juice is a harmonica boogie and Mischo takes full advantage to show what he's packin'. Moeller throws down a great guitar solo as well. This is a cool driver. All Over Again is a great finish to a great CD letting the players including Nick Curran stretch out a bit. This is a really strong CD and one that if you like your traditional blues mixed in with some updated blues will likely really make you perk up. I personally think it's really strong!
