Jake's Blues is Brim's first step back in the studio in six years. At 78 years young, Brim brings over 60 years of blues experience into this recording...And with his road band backing him, delivers some of the hardest hitting traditional blues on the scene today
...It is, thus far, my favorite blues release of this year and I cannot imagine hearing anything to take it's place.
Music Director KVMR Nevada City CA
...Some of the strongest, most vital blues I've ever heard... I didn't know that music like that was being made anymore.
The Once and Future Blues
...firmly rooted in the classic Chicago Blues sound of the 50's... a no nonsense set of Chicago Blues played the same way as when
he first started out.
Bad Dog Blues
...Brim's voice... like a classic malt it still has that mellow wallop I urge all lovers of postwar Chicago blues to buy this CD, this kinda session is all too rare nowadays.
