Super cool bluesy jazz Jay Willie & James Montgomery – Cadillac Walk

Super cool bluesy jazz Jay Willie & James Montgomery – CADILLAC WALK:  A fantastic lineup for one of the ROCKINGEST CD’s you will hear in 2020… Jay Willie – guitar, slide guitar, vocals; James Montgomery – vocals, harmonica; Paul Opalach – bass, lap steel, keys, simulated horns; Bobby T Torello – drums with Lee-Ann Lovelace – vocals and Kyle Mangold – backing vocals… no samples are available yet (it goes live on 10 April, 2020), so you’ll just have to take my word that this is a KILLER release.

The 3:23 “Neighbor Neighbor” warns a nosy neighbor to mind his own bid’ness… James harp on this tune just SMOKES it, folks… the tune length will make this an “instant hit” for DJ’s ’round the world… I can’t help but think about the old Paul Butterfield albums as I listen to this (over & over & OVER again)!

The opener, “Three Cool Cats”, epitomizes “chilly” in jazz… great vocals on this one, and the recording is just excellent… be SURE to listen to this one with your wireless headphones on – ‘coz you’ll be up & dancin’ ROUND the room, fo’ sho’, folks.

The lively pace on “Eatin’ Dry Onions” convinced me that this album (ALL the tracks) had to go on my iPhone player… this is PERFECT for cruisin’ ’round town in my 1966 GTO… it don’t get no BETTER, people!

I lived down ‘Bama way for many years, & when we rocked & rolled all night in the “Chicken Shacks”, we heard stone-cold blues like these folks play on the 5:09 “Detroit Blues”… it’s my absolute favorite of the ten tunes offered up on the album.

I give Jay Willie & James Montgomery and all their players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information on the Zoho Records page for the album.              Rotcod Zzaj
