Jim Liban and the Joel Paterson Trio
I Say What I Mean (Ventrella)

His harp afire with emotions too true to be anything but loudly brash, Jim uncovers for universal delight a stomping, hand-clapping, shouting-in-earthy-testament Chicago-style blues that bobs its brim and snaps its fingers into hazy wee hours. 

And it's indicative of Jim's guiding hipness, and also of the in-pocket groove worth of this thoroughly solid wax, that he enlisted the Joel Paterson trio, hot-damn crackerjacks of whom no high accolade could be superfluous.

Recommended "I Say What I Mean," "Stop On By," "Cottonweed," "Thank You For the Dance," "Cold Stuff"
