JIMMY VIVINO & THE BLACK ITALIANS-13 LIVE-“BLENDING THE BLUE EYED BLUES” REVIEW JOHN EMMS

Image It’s impossible to water down music this infectious. Why?

For players like Jimmy Vivino and his band and for the guys who play like they mean it playing music is life and life is playing live.

Sound kind of wacky. Well it won’t when you let this album burn it’s way through you.

Just let vocalist Catherine Russell take one of Vivino’s originals Fool’s Gold and wrap you up in her intense soul drenching and you will know what I mean.

Of course you could always check out the wicked shuffle of Bob Dylan’s From A Buick 6 when harp man Felix Cabrera and Vivino blast away your cobwebs with killer solos.

Check out the groove stick attack from James Wormworth on the Allman Bros ‘vibe’ of Fast Life Rider and the Chuck Berry on steroids rip of Vivino’s Heaven In A Pontiac.

Each member of the Black Italians gets a chance to shine.

Hey, just like a real band

Like the best Mortadella, this is a tasty “live” treat
