Jimmie Vaughan – Plays Blues, Ballads & Favorites
aaamusic | On 04, Jun 2010
One of the most talented blues players alive, Jimmie Vaughan returns with an album of covers. That’s right, covers, but of the finest songs you can think of, the ones he loves. The result is 15 breathtaking reinterpretations of classics such as The Pleasure’s All Mine, Comin’ & Goin’, Lonely Weekends, Send Me Some Lovin’ among the others.
The album outshines Vaughan abilities and legacy as blues musician, with splendid arrangements and mesmerizing duets with Lou Ann Barton on Come Love, I’m Leaving It Up To You and Wheel of Fortune.
There is little point in explaining why Vaughan is one of the best musicians around, the album speaks for him. A man who can add sparkle and beauty to songs which were already close to perfection has to be revered as a Godlike genius, and he definitely is one.
Do yourself a favour, get the album, sit down and relax.
