Jonathon Long: Jonathon Long Review

You might be tempted to think that this self-titled album from Louisiana’s Jonathon Long is his debut. But you’d be wrong, because he’s recorded a few LPs already, under the moniker Jonathon ‘Boogie’ Long. This album represents something of a reinvention then, as Long joins the same management team as Samantha Fish, who has produced this outing and on whose own Wild Heart Records it’s released. And from what I’ve heard of Long’s previous work, it also marks a slight shift in musical direction. As Long himself puts it, “There was a time I played a lot of shuffles, but now I’m in a different blues genre. I’ve been Boogie since I was two years old, and now it’s time to be just Jonathon Long.”

Sean Chambers: Welcome to My Blues Review

I’m a huge Stevie Ray Vaughan fan, and as such, I’m sensitive to any artist I feel is borrowing too heavily from his work. But when I say Sean Chambers’ latest, Welcome to My Blues is Vaughan-influnced, I mean it as a compliment. Chambers’ seventh album features funky rhythms, incendiary blues runs, and just the right touch of Jimi Hendrix fuzz and mania, all of which will delight fans of the late Vaughan, without pilfering from Vaughan’s legacy.

MC50: Portland, Oregon Gig Review

The MC5 (Motor City 5) were a badass hippie band from Detroit, Michigan who played rebellious hard rock inspired by the Yippies at the riotous 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago that had the police cracking heads and tear gassing peaceful protesters. Two months after the brutal experience provided by Mayor Richard Daly the band recorded its debut album, Kick Out the Jams, at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit, Michigan on October 30 & 31. The raw intensity of their performance was captured and distributed to the masses as guerilla rock & roll. Their music was influenced by blues, jazz and rock as they mixed it with politics and formed a coalition with the “White Panther Party” through their manager, John Sinclair.
