This 3rd RJ album redefines their diverse American roots R&B from a solid blues core, collaborating with Johnnie Johnson on seven cuts (writer of three), including the sublime moodiness of “Johnnie’s Idea” and the classic stroll of “Slow Drag”. It also features a cameo by east coast R&B diva, Rahni Raines, and the full New Orleans-style horn section that the band features at their Mardi Gras Mambofest performances: Rob Sudduth (tenor sax - from Huey Lewis, Amos Garrett), Ed Early (trombone - Albert King), and Michael Peloquin (bari sax).With six other originals mostly by lead vocalist/bassist Tim Eschliman (Commander Cody, Etta James), an Irma Thomas classic, a New Orleans brass band romp, and a Pinetop Smith Boogie Woogie, a full pallette of top shelf rhythm & blues is delivered on this CD - topped off by drummer Jimmy Sanchez’s crazed full-bore second line deviation,“Mighty Fine Day.”
Rhythmtown-Jive - “this American roots combo is comprised of talented San Francisco Bay Area musicians who know how to raise the energy level on the dance floor....some jump blues, a boogie woogie, and a hefty dose of New Orleans style music, with refreshing, not rehashed, arrangements”...“a group to be reck- oned with, polished sidemen all around...” having also back such greats as Bo Diddley, Earl King, Lee Allen, and Big Joe Turner. Johnnie Johnson, best known as Chuck Berry’s piano player for four decades, has finally been credited with much of that music and is known as “the baddest left-hand in the land...the father of Rock & Roll piano.” The RJs and Johnnie, having worked many west coast blues festivals and nightclubs together, stretch out here and deliver an album that captures the down-home elegance of the spawning place of Rock & Roll.
