Big Jack Johnson with Kim Wilson - The Memphis Barbecue Sessions (CD)


Big Jack goes back even further to his roots with a mostly acoustic outing, which also features fellow M.C. Records artist and 2001 & 2003 Grammy nominee Kim Wilson on harmonica. The Memphis Barbecue Sessions also features legendary blues pianist Pinetop Perkins on two tracks. The Memphis Barbecue Sessions is a tasty mix of Johnson originals and interpretations of some of his blues favorites from Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Little Walter and Elmore James.

Johnson informs the music and feel that is at once spontaneous and knowing. The Memphis Commercial Appeal
The playing couldn't get much more deep and fine.
