Not traditional blues but bluesy

Your chance to write big-time blues reviews. Only two rules: First, if you're connected to the band or artist, go to Shameless Promotion; Second, don't write a book -- keep it relatively short and simple, no 1,000+ word epics.

Oh .. and make it fun.

Not traditional blues but bluesy

We saw Americana songwriter James McMurtry last night at the Chicago Old Towne School of Folk Music (great venue). McMurtry is a fine lyricist with a rock blues attitude. He plaid about 6 guitars. Lost of searing, high treble lead guitar, mixed with quiter Jumbo Guild solo stuff. At one point he just stopped playin' but kept singin' and more or less let the lyrics carry themselves.

Special guest was Cameron McGIll, who is sort of country folk with a keyboard and a string quartet.
