Dancing with the Devil
Jr.Johnny does it again with what he calls his best release to date. Vocally, he captures the mood of each of these originals, while his harmonica soars and pierces the blues then reaches back and cuddles it. For harp lovers all over the world, this should be considered essential listening. Students of the instrument would be well-adviced to pay attention to these tracks too. Excellent guitar production also graces this package thanks to the efforts of Peter Corrigan and Russ Aldrich. The rhythm section (featuring Steve Minnich on bass and Mike Cairo on drums) is rock solid and Hymer Morgan is simply incredible at the piano and Hammond B-3 organ. It's always good to find original blues that floursih in the present, yet are firmly rooted in the tradition that make the blues enduring and such a truly great American art form.
