Warren Haynes: "Man In Motion"

"Warren Haynes is a generation-spanning guitar hero; he wasn't out of grade school when some of his best-known collaborators were at the peak of their fame, but he's earned a powerful reputation for his fiery guitar work, steeped in blues and Southern rock traditions, and has distinguished himself as a songwriter, bandleader, and solo artist as well as a gifted sideman."

"In 2011, Haynes looked back at his roots in Southern soul with his album Man in Motion, recorded for the reactivated Stax label and featuring accompaniment from Ian McLagan, Ivan Neville, and George Porter Jr." ~ www.allmusic.com

Lucky Peterson: "Every Second A Fool Is Born"
"Child prodigy status is sometimes difficult to overcome upon reaching maturity. Not so for Lucky Peterson -- he's far bigger (in more ways than one) on the contemporary blues circuit than he was at the precocious age of six, when he scored a national R&B hit with the Willie Dixon-produced "1-2-3-4." ~ www.allmusic.com

"Lucky Peterson opens “Love Me” with a bluesy scat. Then he settles into a funky groove that smolders with intensity and cools with sweetness. That combination sets Peterson apart from many of his blues contemporaries and is certain to draw comparisons to Robert Cray." ~ www.cahlsjukejoint.com
