Description

No longer one of the young guns of the scene and not yet old enough to be an 'old master', Joe Louis Walker today stands in a transition period. So what better time to check out his roots with a new album that is a raw, blast-out-the-blues set. This is an album that was recorded in the old fashioned way - the musicians working together live in a Paris studio (where Sidney Bechet recorded a lot of his French exile recordings in the 1940s, incidentally), Joe's amp turned up loud and the groove and 'feel' being the most important thing. Joe himself overdubbed a few minimal things - some extra guitar, funky piano and a little harmonica. Get a few people from the 'blues business' together and talk soon turns to who is going to be the next top name after B.B. King and Buddy Guy. Joe is one of the first names that always crops up and rightly so. Here's an album to show why. Joe Louis Walker (vocals, guitar, piano, harmonica), Jimmy Oz (bass guitar), Asmus Jensen (drums).
