Scott Morgan

(Alive Naturalsound) Michigan R&B/rock howler Scott Morgan (whom Fred "Sonic" Smith rendezvoused with to form the Sonic Rendezvous Band 35 years ago) does exactly what a bluesy rocker should do as he enters his hearty September years: he made a dignified, kick ass, solid blues record, with gritty production, great playing, and some tight originals thrown in with the Motown gold. Singing a couple songs about the South shows where his heart is with this, and his tune "Lucy May" will fool you into thinking it's a cover of a blues standard (it pays tribute, but trims seven months and 30 days off of Muddy's "She's 19 Years Old"...which is still legal). This is great, Scott!
