Newtown, Connecticut, blues-rocker Jay Willie does not hide that the greatest impact in his life is the late Johnny Winter.
However in spite of its title, Willie’s new album– Johnny’s Juke Joint– isn’t a tribute cd; it’s far more compared to that.
Although some of Winter season’s influence peaks via sometimes, Johnny’s Juke Joint is a well-conceived collection of covers and originals provided with gusto from a fresh point of view. It includes stellar guest appearances from new-age harmonica master Jason Ricci, that’s shown up on all three of the band’s albums.
