"As I approached the club, walking down Bourbon Street, it was obvious something BIG was happening. People were milling around on the sidewalk, huge recording trucks blocked the street and technicians scurried about. Security was tight, all entrances were secured, and no one was being let in.
Once inside the electricity was incredible. The room was dark, smokey, and packed to the rafters, record executives and management buzzed around the stage. Frank Marino's rig was ominous on the stage, and a buzz was around me as rumours that Kenny Wayne Shepherd and James Cotton were going to sit it, but they didn't belive it.
When I pointed James out sitting on a back bench in the corner wearing a big smile and equally big overalls, excitement shivered through the room again. There's a unique bristling energy that builds at a big rock happening in a small heavily secured club. I found Bryan before he went on in a back hallway behind the front bar and he was pumped up, and ready to go!
Then all hell broke loose.
Get this recording and play it loud, Loud, LOUD! It's not only the best rockin' blues night you can have, but with its special guests and inspired solos it's an entire blues festival crammed into one CD box! Like Rocky always used to say "There's a party in my pants and it's dying to get out!"
In addition to the fantastic playing on "Bryan Lee Live...", a big hand has to be given to the Justin Time folks for the recording, mix and sound. Part of what makes this a truly great music package is the technical delivery. Every instrument is separated and clear, the mix is perfect!
And a good thing, because Victor Spancowski on drums never misses a single beat and Al Arthur on bass never plays a note ouside the pocket. Over this bottom Bryan just cuts loose. His monster guitar presence is both wild and totally under control. Equally important in this recording is the emergence of Bryan's fantastic vocals and razor sharp personality; the real deal with a sense of humor to match.
Bryan's guitar power live sometimes obscures his singing, but listen to Five Long Years. Bryan Lee is a mature powerful Blues singer, and it comes through loud and clear.
The song list is truly a hall of fame lineup. So are the performances.
When James Cotton takes the stage for I Ain't Doing Too Bad and Five Long Years he doesn't just sit in, he's totally into it and Bryan draws him into a furious interchange. His work on Five Long Years is as good as it gets. Everyone is on maximum burn, and when Mark Adams, the monster keyboard force in the Jumpstreet 5 for years, tears into his B-3 solo at the the head of Going Down to bring on Kenny Wayne, the groove is on full overdrive.
The excitement of the evening has been been realized. Kenny Wayne wails at both ends of the spectrum: slow blues and hot licks. Frank Marino (formerly of Mahogany Rush) checks in with his guitar to throw another log onto the bonfire. "Cadillac" Pete Rahn on harmonica is brilliant throughout. Listen to his Little Walter sound on The Sky Is Crying and his high burn wail on going down. John Banks' piano work throughout the set is great and Jody Golick adds tenor licks on Walking Cane.
But the night belongs to Bryan Lee.
I'll say it again, have a Blues festival in your house tonight, have a serious party, play it way loud. Bryan Lee Live At The Old Absinthe House is as good as live powerhouse Blues can get! Plug in and take a wild ride."
