Overview

Jon Cleary, the New Orleans-based multi-instrumentalist and singer, cooks up a batch of funky music on his first Basin Street release. Backed by a small core band and a smattering of guests (including Bonnie Raitt on slide guitar), Cleary delivers hard-hitting urban blues and soul that can bring to mind Tower of Power, Bill Withers, and even a little Steely Dan. His singing can be a bit generic, but his organ and Wurlitzer flourishes are quite tasty, as is the dead-on rhythm guitar of Derwin "Big D" Perkins and the bass-and-drum lock-up of Cornell Williams and Jeffrey "Jellybean" Alexander.

I saw Jon Cleary open for Bonnie Raitte at a concert and he was amazing. This cd capsures his incredible talent for singing the blues with his great energy. Buy it, buy it, buy it!! If you didn't think blues could be fun, listen to this cd. It will prove you wrong!!
