Avis sur l’album

John Lee Hooker, Jr. hasn't shied away from his father's immense legacy, and he always features some of Hooker, Sr.'s signature songs in concert; he included three of them on his debut album, 2004's Blues with a Vengeance, but anyone expecting him to replicate that legacy is mistaken, for Hooker is after something else again, a true synthesis of the old with the new, and his sound is much closer to contemporary urban R&B or funk than his father's raw, Delta-derived blues style.

One gets the sense that Hooker has an even better album in him, and it could well be right around the corner.

At 18, he was a featured vocalist on Hooker, Sr.'s Live at Soledad Prison album and the future looked bright for the young musician, but drug and alcohol problems derailed things for some 25 years until family and friends helped...
