Album Review

Delta harmonica man Frank Frost hooked up with longtime friend and drummer Sam Carr (the son of |blues legend Robert Nighthawk) and guitarist Big Jack Johnson in 1962 to form a stripped-down blues trio that came to be known as the Nighthawks.

The recordings collected here are those sessions, and they feature a lean, ragged blues approach that adapts the Chicago sound back into a Delta format. The easy, natural roll of songs like "Big Boss Man," "Jelly Roll King" (essentially "Big Boss Man" in new clothes), "Pocket Full of Shells," and the classic, delightful instrumental "Jack's Jump" form the swampy template that the group would follow in their later incarnation as the Jelly Roll Kings.
