EXTRA
JAY JESSE JOHNSON BAND

Down the Hard Road
Strat slinger Johnson
hits all the right notes on
this collection of modern
throwback blues. Whether
sliding or fretting, his deep
tone calls forth the masters,
from SRV to Gibbons, but his
songs are all his own. - MD

record that doesn't stick to
convention. Robert Johnson is an influence, but so
is the grunge music of the
'90s. Cook's great gravel
voice mixes with masterful
picking and slide soloing
to make several covers
and all of his originals
winners. Cook has always
been an artist, and here
he's beginning to settle
into his own skin. - JH

THE CASH BOX KINGS

Royal Mint
A powerhouse blues band
the way it used to be done,
the Kings return with guitar
hotshots Joel Paterson and
Billy Flynn. Their sound and
licks are lovely, backing
the vocals and harp of
frontmen Joe Nosek and
Oscar Wilson. - MD

DAMON KRUKOWSKI

The New Analog: Listening and Reconnecting
in a Digital World
Galaxie 500 drummer
(yes, you read right)
Krukowski muses wise on
melding the best of the
analog and digital worlds for
recording and listening. Full
of ideas and stellar insights,
this should be bedside
reading for everyone
interested in music. - MD

ELI COOK

High-Dollar Gospel
This is a fine blues

ADAM ROGERS

Dice
Rogers covers a lot of
ground with bassist Fima
Ephron and drummer Nate
Smith. There's hard funk,
rock by way of Hendrix,
dissonant mixes of jazz
and rock, blues, and even
a wonderful country-folk
tune and a cover of Patsy
Cline's "Crazy." However
you want to label Rogers, his playing is as
strong as it gets in the
instrumental world. - JH

MARTY FRIEDMAN

Wall Of Sound
Friedman's latest is a
melody-rich note-fest with
face-punishing G-forces.
Sophisticated and flawlessly executed, it makes
the perfect soundtrack
while you evade the police
in a high-speed chase, or
give your daughter away
to the dark lord. Excellent
use of dynamics and the
inclusion of violin and cello
expand the instrumental
metal paradigm. - OJ

January 2018

Rush to Alvin Youngblood Hart,
this is a fun homage. - MD

CHEAP TRICK
JASON RICCI AND
THE BAD KIND

Approved By Snakes
Ricci's a fine harp
player and his band, with
guitarists John Lisi and
Sam Hotchkiss, rev it up
on this record to create a
truly unique sound. Great
interplay, great songs, and
gravelly vocals by Ricci just
to the south of Tom Waits
make this record perfect.
Lyrical content is original and
off-the-beaten path. - JH

We're All Alright
America's last great rock
band does not disappoint. Mixing power-pop and street-fighting heaviness, this latest sticks
to the script, doing what they
do best. Never a slave to commercialism, the album rocks
severely like the old stuff, with
less pop and more unbridled
guitar. Rick Nielsen is fierce and
has never played better. - OJ

JACKIE VENSON
MIGHTY JOE YOUNG

Live From the North
Side of Chicago
Young and his guitar were
huge on the blues scene on
Chicago's South Side for
much of the '70s. Home court
was Wise Fool's Pub, scene
of this '78 show. After almost
a decade in residence, Young
still played like the rent was
on the line. Even cracking
a chestnut like "Stormy
Monday," he makes you
wish you'd been there. - RA

Transcends
Soul-pop sensation Venson
is a blues-based singer/songwriter and guitarist. Here, she
expands her catalog to include
less bluesy characteristics.
She's a talented and spiritually articulate musician with
tasteful rock flourishes and
an ear for harmony. Leaning
harder into the pop end of the
spectrum, this album reconnoiters accessibility without
sacrificing her emotionally
intelligent brand. - OJ

NICK ROSACI
LUTHER DICKINSON,
JIMBO MATHIS, VALERIE
JUNE, AND OTHERS

Red Hot: A Memphis Celebration of Sun Records
Ten tracks only begin to
pay tribute to the whole lot
of earthshaking that went
down at Sun. From "Red
Hot" to "Tough Titty," Bobby

VINTAGE GUITAR

Soul Fingers: The Music &
Life of Donald "Duck" Dunn
Part bio (42 pages packed
with photos), part musical
transcriptions (57 songs in
musical and tab notation),
this oversize book is the ideal
tribute to one of the most soulful bassists ever. And there's
a foreword by none other
than Elwood Blues. - MD
