This is another great collaboration between Mojo Blues Band and American blues musicians. And again the release has a great booklet which explains the goal of this release. We also get to know the artists involved. I have borrowed some of the photos from the booklet just to let you know it's all about.

"...I'm sure you will agree that this ambitious project by Mojo Blues Band is again a full artistic success. This is no longer merely the case of a European band searching out the roots of their music and hiring black blues stars to raise their own visibility or credibility. The recordings on this CD are proof that Mojo Blues Band has reached a level of musicianship and originality that puts it on the forefront of traditional blues and rhythm & blues bands anywhere in the world today. And the featured musicians regarded them as peers, not pupils: You can hear the fun they had together, live and/or in the studio". (Klaus Kilian)
