In Session: Great Rhythm & Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
In the wake of Shuggie Otis' rediscovery in 2000, Stardust Records readied In Session, a collection of the artist's session work as a guitarist and bassist.

Granted, there's nothing here as extravagant as Otis' own solo work, and In Session isn't exactly the treasure trove you might like it to be. Stardust never tries to convince you otherwise, though, accurately subtitling this album "Great Rhythm & Blues" and compiling recordings that would otherwise be extremely difficult to find. Taking this into consideration, In Session is a welcome addition to Otis' catalog that collectors, in particular, should savor.
