Blues Root (with Curtis Knight)
This is a dirty old blues album with Jan showing that he can play the blues with some scorching solos which would leave Clapton's jaw wide open. Curtis Knight used to record with Jimi Hendrix and met Jan through Dino Walcott (who was in Jan's band some years back). A collection of new songs and some old classics like 'Little Wing' and Robert Johnson's 'Cross Road Blues' as well as a great instrumental track called 'Just Jamming'.

This album sounds like these guys just turned up at the studio and 'went for it' as it sounds raw and live. If you like the blues then you will like this album.


Tracks: Fat back Sue
Daughter of misfortune
How is the time
Driving wheel
Blues root blues
Don't accuse me
Little wing
I would if I could
Just jamming
Cross road blues
