The album consists of ten tracks that include three originals and seven
re-arranged covers. On it, Sammy Eubanks on vocals and guitar, is joined
by: Darren Theriault on bass; Bob Britt and Matt Hauer on guitars; Chris
Kimmerer on drums; and Reese Wynans and Scott Saunders on
On the opening track, one of Sammy’s originals, he tells us
how - as a young boy - he was influenced by the records he heard
his father playing. Artists like: BB King; Elvis; Johnny;
Jerry Lee; Ray Charles; and his father himself, Jesse James
Eubanks. As Sammy says it, “It’s All Blues To Me”.
The guitar worshippers will love this one.
Having experienced most of the sexual revolution as a single man, I
thought I pretty much heard - and even used - some of
the craziest pick up lines of all time. With that said, when it
came to walking up to a woman and saying; “You ought to ‘Stop That
Grinnin’, drop some denim, let’s get it
on”; Sammy, and the late Skeeter Brandon (the songs writer),
obviously had bigger balls than I do. Tell me Sammy,
exactly how did that pan out? Fun, frolicking shuffle with Matt,
Chris and Reese killing it on rhythm.
Sammy’s rendition of “Blues All Morning” is a
cornucopia of musical styles. The vocals are soulful, the rhythm’s
funky, the guitar leads are scorching and the beat will have you on
your feet. The dancers will be all over
"No Excuse For The Blues", is
not only one of the discs best blues tracks but it features several
performers at discs best as well. Using some diverse vocal
range, Sammy’s on top of his game right here; rhythm wise, Chris is
killing it on the drums; Reese is showing you why everybody wants him playing
piano in their band; and although the guitarists are making no
excuse for the blues, they’re certainly cranking it
With country being another one of his favorite music genres,
Sammy does a stellar job on Mark Collie’s top ten hit, “Born To
Love You”. From the songs familiar, sing along lyrics; to
the way they’re being sung; to the outstanding acoustic picking; to the
masterful slide guitar chords; this one is absolutely
Another of Sammy’s originals is a track called “I’m Gonna Leave
You”. It’s a clever track that plays on the “You can’t fire me
because I quit” and “You can’t quit because you’re fired” routine. You
see, Sammy’s woman is threatening to leave him but the way he sees it,
he’s leaving her if she doesn’t come back…..and if he leaves she won’t
be coming back. Confused? Just like two tough guys threatening
back and forth to kick each others butts but no one ever throws a
punch, I don’t think either one of these two really wants to
leave. My advice? Get right to the make up sex and move
Other tracks on “Sugar Me” include: “I Just
Wanna Make Love To You”, “My Baby’s Gone”, “Sugar Me” and
"It’s My Life Baby" .
JazzTimes reprints an excerpt from Benny Golson’s new autobiography Whisper Not. This is a memoir not to be missed. Benny takes an unconventional structural approach to the book (as he often did with musical compositions) and we’re all the better for it. Like Jimmy Heath’s autobiography I Walked With Giants, you can hear the author’s voice talking aloud as you read it. Two gems. Don’t miss these volumes.
On this day in music history: July 22, 1966 - “Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton” by John Mayall & The Blues Breakers is released. Produced by Mike Vernon, it is recorded at Decca Studios in West Hampstead, London, UK in March 1966. The album is initially planned as a live recording, but the recordings are scrapped and the band record in the studio instead. It is released to great acclaim upon its release in the UK, further cementing Eric Clapton’s reputation as a brilliant lead guitarist, and is regarded as one of the quintessential British blues recordings. Clapton uses his newly acquired (and now legendary) 1960 Les Paul during the sessions. The albums now famous cover photo features the band posed together looking at the camera, with Clapton eyes averted reading a “Beano” comic book. In 2006, Universal Music Group releases a double CD Deluxe Edition of “Blues Breakers” featuring a remastered version of the original album with the original stereo and mono mixes, with the second disc featuring live recordings made for and originally broadcast on the BBC radio program “Saturday Club Sessions” as well as the stand alone single “Lonely Years” and its original B-side “Bernard Jenkins”. “Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton” peaks at number six on the UK album chart.
