Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons
Posted on Sunday February 17, 2019

Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons

This is a medley of “We Will Go Down”, Good Sunday”, and “Love Train” delivered live with guests. Jerry Joseph salutes both Bob Dylan and Van Morrison in his lyrics. Appropriately enough I find this live recording to be on par with “Astral Weeks” and “Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands”. The best of the best.

Here’s the link to the whole concert on the Live Music Archive.

Roger "Hurricane" Wilson & The Hurricane Homeboys "Live At Madlife"
Posted on Friday February 15, 2019

Roger “Hurricane” Wilson & The Hurricane Homeboys “Live At Madlife” Woodstock, Georgia Blue Storm Records By Peter “Blewzzman” Lauro © February 2019

Roger “Hurricane” Wilson and I have crossed paths many times over the years and although many of those paths were business related, a long and wonderful friendship has blossomed from them.  I’ve had the pleasure of emceeing a few of his concerts, we’ve also co-emceed a few blues festivals and when Roger did a blues in the schools presentation in my neck of the woods, I had the honor of watching him capture the hearts, minds and souls of a class full of what could have easily been a bunch of unattentive and unruly children.  He’s also been a big part of the Mary4Music family by having had us review several of his releases and placing songs on our compilation albums.

Normally, when doing reviews, I’d say something like “Live At Madlife” is Roger “Hurricane” Wilson’s  #  release but while at his website, I lost count at “a lot”, so we’ll just leave it at that.  "Live At Madlife", of course, was recorded live at Madlife - a recording studio that just happens to be a place where you can enjoy fine dining and drink tasty cocktails all while being entertained by a band who just happens to be recording their music.

For this session, Roger “Hurricane” Wilson - on guitar and vocals - is joined by Marvelous Marvin Mahanay on bass and Billy Jeansonne on drums.  The disc’s twelve tracks include ten covers and two Roger Wilson originals.

The disc opens with a smokin’ rendition of Freddie Kings “San Ho Zay”. The instrumental, which showcased the bands’ amazing musical talents, was a perfect song to open with. With Marvin and Billy pounding out a blistering rhythm, Roger puts on a virtual rock/blues guitar lesson.   From casually playing rhythm to throwing out some relentless slide, to scorching and note bending licks, and everything in between - he’s all over ALL of it.  

Not much changes on the following track, one of Roger’s originals titled “Why I Do What I Do”. With Roger and the guys still going at it full throttle, Roger shares with us the reasons why he writes, sings and plays music and all of those reasons have to do with how good it makes him feel when he does it.  That said, I’m taking the liberty of adding another one…..he does what he does because he’s damn good at it!

Just like Eddie Boyd did when he recorded Willie Dixon’s “Third Degree” Roger absolutely crushes this version.  I’m going to take this opportunity to give Roger a personal message by telling him right here and now that the next time I see him play he has got to do this song for me.  I may have very well just heard some of the best guitar work I’ve heard in a very long time.
On another of his originals, like all of us, Roger seems to be baffled about the things taking place in “This Crazy World”. He doesn’t know how it happened but when he was a kid - as one would be - what they do now, as he did then, they call it ADD.  He also doesn’t know how it happened but when he was just a schoolboy he did arithmetic in his head and now you need a calculator to buy a loaf of bread……and there is a whole lot more that he doesn’t know how happened.  Oh yeah, musically, the guys are once again killing it.

Perhaps the best-known version of J. Throckmortion’s “The Way I Am” is the one done by Merle Haggard.  However, Roger does one heck of a job with this country song as well.  It’s the only song of the lot with the music being a bit laid back and as a result, the listener gets to appreciate Roger’s soulful and tender vocals.  Nicely done guys.

So who thinks it makes sense for a three-piece band that consists of a guitarist, a drummer and a bassist to do a song by a pianist with a very unique style?  Roger Marvin and Billy, that’s who.  I’ve got to tell you, their version of Floyd Cramer’s  "Last Date" is absolutely masterful…..even without a piano.

Other tracks on “Life At Madlife” include: “Help Me” (S. Williamson), “You Don’t Love Me” (W. Cobbs), “Hurricane Blues” (A. Janoulis), “If This Is Love” (M. Mahaney), “You Never Know” (Lyerly/Zack) and “All Along The Watchtower” (B. Zimmerman). 


For more - and I mean a whole lot more - on this singer, songwriter, Radio and TV personality, author and educator, just go to www.HurricaneWilson.com.  BTW, this time you don’t even need to tell him the Blewzzman sent you ‘cause he’s just gonna know.

Jeff Denson
Posted on Friday February 01, 2019

Jeff Denson:

“I have known Jeff Denson for several years now, and had the great pleasure to perform and record with him throughout Europe, the USA and Canada as a member of my quartet. Jeff is an exceptional musician who is a creative force on the double bass and has an original approach and voice on the instrument. He brings a fantastic sense of composition to his improvisations that allow him to transcend the role of the bass and make many unexpected choices. From his hard driving quarter note swing, to cello-like bowed melodies and interactive counterpoint, he is always surprising and inspiring! Jeff is also an outstanding composer who has written music for jazz and classical ensembles. He is always thinking outside the box and bringing his musicality and lyricism to all of his work.”

— Lee Konitz
