Johnny I. All Star Blues Revival - EP Review

I just received the newest release by Johnny I. All Star Blues Revival. This release is star packed featuring the works of Jaimoe, Billy Cox, Bruce Katz and Reese Wynans. Opening with Life Is Better, a funky groove and Billy Cox on bass, Ingrassia leads the way on vocals. Wynans carries a lot of the load on B3 and Layton cements the bottom on drums. After a nice B3 solo from Wynans, Johnny I. steps up with a fat, high gain guitar solo making for a cool jam. Late Night has more of a jazzy ballad featuring Jaimoe on drums and Katz on B3. Katz steps up on this track and plays a mean solo opening the door for Johnny I. to step up again with a burst of fat guitar riff. An easy going track reminding me quite a bit of an early Isley Brothers track. Interesting listing and a decent start to a concept release.
