Overall Comments

If you're like me, you love the blues as much as you love the banjo. I have heard banjo blues before, but not like this, and certainly not with a line-up like this. Otis Taylor, great bluesman in his own right, teams up with other greats like Keb Mo, Alvin Youngblood-Hart, Corey Harris, and a bunch of other amazing talents, and they all head into a thrilling exploration of the banjo's traditional roots. They mix in some modern twists using electricity, but this album puts a new/old spin on the blues, and showcases not only the artist's talent, but the erstwhile banjo's versatility.

Overall Rating: 10
