I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. 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!

Jumping Jack Records artist: Delta Moon - Babylon Is Falling - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Babylon Is Falling, from Delta Moon and it's really good. Opening with dark, swampy, Long Way To Go, Tom Gray on slide guitar works his magic with complimentary vocals by himself and Mark Johnson (also on guitar), Franher Joseph on bass and Marlon Patton on drums. Excellent opener. Patterson sets an excited pace on title track, Babylon Is Falling, a smoky blues track with Gray on lead vocal, guitar and keys. His slide work is smooth and gritty lending the track a beefy, New Orleans feel. Two stepping, Might Take A Lifetime has a solid rock beat and loose, guitar riffs giving the track a JJ Cale feel. RL Burnside's Skinny Woman retains RL's energy but with a slightly different arrangement, has a somewhat more contemporary feel. Very cool. Traditional blues, Nobody's Fault But Mine gets a funky, swampy remake. Nice electric piano work, woven with cool guitar riffs, a solid bass line and tight drums gives this track new life. Wrapping the release is Christmas Time In New Orleans with a straight forward rhythm and easy acoustic slide couples with quietly wailing electric lap steel giving the track a cool eeriness. This is a really solid release and one you should definitely check out.
