Kim Wilson - Smokin' Joint

Your Price:

CD Information

Kim Wilson and company cover a rather broad range of blues styles including Texas style shuffles, jump-band swing, classic slow blues, hard-driving Chicago style, and some Memphis soul influenced tracks. Four of the thirteen songs are originals, while the rest are from a variety of sources, including Willie Dixon and Jimmy Reed. Wilson is in fine form on both of the gigs represented on this CD. There's something about a live blues performance, especially with a sympathetic band, that can sometimes transcend even the best studio recordings. “Smokin' Joint” captures a live ambience well, with little touches like the sound of the band getting ready to play each tune. With both lineups in excellent form, the CD is a highlight of Wilson's recording career.
