" Jay's voice has the spot on blues attitude to give these tunes authenticity. That carries through to his tough harp skills and his hand picked crop of first rate musicians from the Twin Cities blues scene. If you have a hankering for fresh sounding blues that owes a debt to the masters, you just cant go wrong here."
