Black Night Is Falling: Live At The Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club

John Lee Hooker

Black Night Is Falling: Live At The Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club

 Justin Time Records -  [LP] (first time on vinyl, limited to 1000, indie-retail exclusive)

 

Black Night Is Falling finds John Lee Hooker in fine voice and backed by a driving band
composed of John Garcia on guitar, Steve Jones on bass, and Larry ''Wild Man'' Martin
on drums, with the end result being an excellent example of Hooker at his best. Highlights
include impressive romps through Hooker's signature tunes, ''Boom Boom,'' which simply
blazes with raw energy here, and ''One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,'' which is
delivered as a wonderfully paced barroom cautionary tale. This is what the live Hooker
sounded like with a sympathetic band behind him, a band that luckily wasn't afraid to push
him a little. After the first song, Hooker says ''I want to tell you one thing. This is the best
blues club in town'', and from it's opening in 1975, and for more than a decade later, The
Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club brought the best Blues, Jazz, Cajun, and Salsa players
from around the world to Montreal.
