One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

   Take the primal wail of American Blues and amplify them beyond the point with no limitations. Chicago area native Jay Gordon continues to shake planet earth with his onslaught of Electric Voodoo Blues. When you listen to BLUES VENOM - NO CURE you will see how Gordon has moved the blues forward to the 21st Century, infusing the music with the fire and power of rock while carving out his own place in the music world. BVNC features songs like, "Dockery's Plantation" (for Robert Johnson), "World Blues," "Slow Burn/Biker Mama," "Red Hot Tempered Woman" and more - even a bonus track in honor of the late, great Phillip Walker. "Getting bit by Jay Gordon's BLUES VENOM - NO CURE is similar to Peter Parker getting bit by a radioactive spider. There is no cure, but that's a good thing," states the world's #1 authority on such matters, BLUES REVUE. "As solid as a blues album can be, and I consider one of the best I have heard this year," the review concludes.      

Guitarist Jay Gordon (left, pictured here performing live with bassist Sharon Butcher) has been referred to as "the Yngwie Malmsteen of the Blues." Catch his powerhouse playing style at The Whiskey A Go-Go on  September 27 and at  the 2012 Las Vegas Bike Fest on Saturday, September 29.  


"What really caught my ear with this Blues CD is how each studio-recorded song has the heart and soul of the live show...I can visualize the the cigarette smoke rhythmically gyrating seductively in the spotlight; I can feel the stretch of every note squeezed out of the guitar strings until they snap from red hot finger picking. It's great to hear a contemporary blues artist who's been at this for a while and knows how to write and perform good music."                                     ALL ACCESS MAGAZINE 

"I believe that it is a mild understatement for me to say that California-based blues rocker guitarist Jay Gordon is an "envelope pusher"...if you have been shipwrecked for the past several years and not heard any of his work, Gordon is another of those phenomenally gifted guitarists/singer/songwriters who for some reason flies just below the collective radars of many mainstream music fans. Gordon plays with the intensity of Walter Trout, Frank Zappa or Alvin Lee, the raw passion of Johnny Winter or Houndog Taylor, and does it all with the precision of the world's finest Swiss watch. Unpredictable, impossible to categorize, and chaotic. It is also brilliant."                                                                                                                             BLUESROCKERS 

"BLUES VENOM - NO CURE is a solid album of thirteen songs that show how Gordon can appeal to fans of both traditional blues as well as fans of rock-infused with a healthy does of blues....if you fall into either category, this is an album worth adding to your collection."    OC MUSIC EXAMINER
