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!

The Last Music Co. artist: Jimmie Vaughan - Please Come Home - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Please Come Home, from Jimmie Vaughan and it's solid. Opening with Lloyd Price's R&B track, Baby, Please Come Home Vaughan has the mic and joined by George Rains on drums, Ronnie James on bass, Billy Pitman on rhythm guitar, Doug James on bari sax, Greg Piccolo on tenor sax, this band is rockin. On Lefty Frizzell's shuffle No One To Talk To (But The Blues), Vaughan's vocals are stellar and his guitar playing low slung and meaningful. Chuck Willis' What's Your Name? has a real great tempo and the steady drumming by Rains sets the tempo and James' sax work is fat and meaty. Very nice. Low slung, It's Love Baby (24 Hours A Day) has a real nice off beat pace and Vaughan's guitar lead answers the response nicely and his soloing with James' bari work is really nice. Fats Domino's So Glad has a great feel with hot sax work by James and Piccolo and I really like Vaughans unusual soloing techniques here setting the track off nicely. Wrapping the release is Jimmy Reed's Baby, What's Wrong with classic Reed tempo and sound. T. Jarrod Bonta joins on piano and randy Zimmerman is on trombone with Kaz Kazanoff on tenor sax, Al Gomez on trumpet, Jimmy Shortell on trumpet. Vaughan rocks this release and is pure to his style.
