ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When the oldest continuously running blues society in the world says you're the "real deal", that has to mean something. When blues forums toss your name around with the likes of harmonica masters like Little Walter and Sonny Boy...that has to mean something.

Of course, there will always be skeptics;
but to the blues fans of the northeast Unites States, there is no doubt that at just 26 years old, Mikey Jr. is chasing the masters at a pace that's frightening.

Growing up on the tough streets of Trenton, New Jersey, Mikey Jr. is a self-taught prodigy. With his impressive collection of vintage tapes, cd's, records, and videos, Mikey spent the better part of his youth immersing himself in the world of blues music. By the time he was twenty-one, he was allready a road-tested player, making even a ardent blues purists, take notice.

Since that time, Mikey Jr. has released an impressive four cd's as well as a documentary DVD. He's been praised by blues societies as wall as players for his origional take on 'old school' styles and his latest release, 'Look Inside My Pocket' is being hailed as a watershed effort by the blues community.

Mikey Jr. never set out to re-write the pages of blues history, but through his true love of the music and his undying dedication to the masters that came before him, it seemsall but certainthat Mikey Jr. will scribe his name in the annals of blues history - right along side the very masters that influence his every performance.

Blues harp fans must have this cd
You would expect a kid from Trenton New Jersey to be more concerned with the latest Kanye West cd than soaking up old school blues, but at just 26, Mikey Jr. impresses with every cut on "Look Inside My Pocket" - his fourth release.

It's clear this kid has done his homework. Every cut shows his respect for the harp masters that have come before him, while combining an aggressive edge that can only come from someone that grew up in the tough streets of Trenton. And he's no one trick pony either: He plays both diatonic and chromatic with equal aplomb. Though the songs on this release may follow the traditional blues phrasing, the strength of his harmonica skills make them stand out from other similar acts. As a vocalist, you can tell Mikey is singing from the heart and feeling every word of it.

Recorded at Severn Studios in Baltimore, Md. the mix is great and extremely well balanced. His band is also top notch and keep a pocket like nobody's business. This is a great cd from a young kid who is destined, in my opinion, to go down in the annals of the blues harp greats. Seriously.

Fantastic Bluz Harp
This cd grabs ya from the first track to the last..a nice tight sounding band that showcases Mikey Jr's talent on the harp. The whole set of music just flows effortlessly and is a great auditory pleasure...
