SAMOA WILSON with the Jim Kweskin Band/I Just Want to Be Horizontal: It took awhile to find a thrush that could handle the old timey stuff as well as Maria Muldaur but Kweskin finally put the jug down and focused on the music pulling the strings in all the right directions. An enjoyable nostalgia set because it doesn’t feel like it’s being nostalgic or ironic, this is a just a bunch of skilled off the clock cats playing music they love and doing it right. Fun stuff throughout from an old master and worthy new charge.
