Album Review

Smokin' is a good electric blues album, but it's hard to divorce an assessment of it from the knowledge that singer/guitarist Jonny Lang was a mere 14 years old when he recorded it. Would one consider it such an achievement if the bandleader were twice that age? Probably not. Without Lang's precocity as a draw, the album is a competent work in a hidebound form. The guitar playing is fluid and professional in a style reminiscent of many other players, notably B.B. King. The singing is fine, but unremarkable. The backup band maintains a groove and gives Lang something to play off of. If you saw a band playing like this in a local club, you'd have a good time. And if you could tell that the guitar player was underage, you'd be far more impressed. But then, that's the point, isn't it?

Jonny Lang.....Smokin

Just 14 years old? Just amazing. Love this album.

Great Blues Artist. But...

Why are track 3 Lovin My Baby &
track 5 Nice & Warm the same? Least when I downloaded the album is what I got.
Either way been following Jonny a long time and this album is superb.

Brilliant and Raw First Release

This album features Jonny at age 14 with his original band The Big Bang from Fargo, North Dakota. Listening to this great collection of songs, it is easy to see why Jonny has gone on to such a successful career. He possessed immense talent right from the start. His bandmates on this album were quite young at the time (early twenties) and all Fargo natives. Be sure to search for The Big Bang on iTunes and check out their work since - "Re-Ignited" and "Easy." Great stuff.


Born: January 29, 1981 in Fargo, ND

Genre: Blues

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Modern blues in the '90s had a weird phenomenon of teenage blues guitarists rocketing to popularity with their first album. The entire trend culminated with Jonny Lang, a guitarist from Fargo, North Dakota, who released his solo debut album, Lie to Me, when he was 15. At the age of 12, he had attended a show by the Bad Medicine Blues Band and began playing with the group. Several months later he became the leader, and the newly renamed Kid Jonny Lang & the Big Bang relocated from Fargo to Minneapolis...
