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!

ZOHO Roots artist:Jay Willie & James Montgomery - Cadillac Walk - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Cadillac Walk, from Jay Willie & James Montgomery and it's tasty. Opening with Leiber and Stoller's Three Cool Cats with it's jazzy blues feel featuring Montgomery and Willie on vocal, Montgomery on harmonica, Willie on guitar, Paul Opalach on bass, and Bobby T Torello on drums. Solid opener. A more traditional blues take on the Stones' Satisfaction is pretty cool. With grittier guitar work by Willie and complimentary harmonica work by Montgomery takes this track from the rocky streets of England into the streets of Chicago. Very cool. Easy shuffle, Detroit Blues, has a solid groove and plenty of space for soulful riffs by Montgomery Willie. Very nice. High energy, Montgomery Boogie, is a smoking rock fused instrumental featuring Montgomery leading the way and hot accents by Willie on guitar. Johnny Winter's I'm Yours and I'm Hers gets a little bit of rock fused into a great blues track but maintaining the "Winter" slide style. One of my favorite tracks on the release, Willie fires it up and Montgomery fans the flames. Wrapping the release is another Winter track, Mean Town Blues, with that great blues rock pace and strong vocal delivery by Willie. He shows adept slide fluidity running through Winter's riffs and keeping the track ripping. Super closer.
