The set opens in great style with 'In The Darkest Hour', a churning 50's styled blues number replete with brooding vocals, moaning harp, shimmering chords and a menacing Magic Sam styled guitar. Backed by his band The Blue Jays, vocalist/harmonica player Doug Jay presents this varied set of blues. With the exception of 2 Otis Spann covers (plus a Floyd Dixon tune), Doug and the band have written all of the material. They cover a whole lot of ground, from laid-back swamp blues to the deep sounds of Chicago, from guitar-driven blues to jump and swing in the finest West Coast tradition.
