Do you dig mellow '60s rhythm and blues grooves like Percy Mayfield or T-Bone? If so, Big Joe and his band will be right up your alley. Joe's a natural-born blues singer, as irresistibly laid back as Albert King. The band's got that Hammond organ groove down. The two saxes are raunchy and raw; the electric guitar moans and wails. Stereophile says "...such a cool disc...equal parts barrel-house jump-band and smooth swing...big, big sound." Highly recommended as one of the best-sounding blues/R&B discs ever, according to blues star Bob Margolin.
Joe Maher, vocals, drums; Jeff Sarli, upright bass; Rusty Bogart, electric guitar; Bob Willoughby, piano; Phil Stancil, B-3 organ, piano; Chris Watling, bari sax; Jerry Queene, tenor sax
