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.

The blues is in good hands!
“Mikey Likes It” leaves no doubt, the blues is in good hands! Classic numbers here sound fresh with “Back Door Man” being one of my favorite tracks and Mikey Jr.’s original material is rock-solid, coming from an artist who respects the legacy of the blues but is all about here and now, no copying here! Being a fan of harmonica his style of playing really impressed me by mixing this classic punchy sound of Chicago blues with jazzy sophistication, quite unique. But the real strength of this album lays in ensemble playing – no showing off here, on the contrary, fabulous musicians including one of the best piano guys around, Bill Heid and young but very promising Dave Gross on guitar playing like a band should! From Mikey’s powerful vocal delivery, through his imaginative harp playing, to the band as tight as anybody could ask for, it is an album to enjoy again and again. If you already know this artist you know that this new CD is worth every penny. If, on the other hand, you are new to his talent, buy it and have fun!

Well before other publications gave Mikey Jr an appreciative nod, we knew there were big things in his future. We recognized his talent. This, his latest, gives support to this. While In My Pocket, his previous CD, demonstrated Mikey Jr's real knack for song construction, with well written, inventive lyrics, and superlative playing, Mikey Likes It gives a nod to the legacy of the past, while imbuing each of these covers with a welcomed, reviving freshness. His harmonica work sizzles as he leads a top notched group of musicians. Grab this CD, keep your eye on Mikey Jr, and catch him as he takes the stage May 3rd, at the Ground Zero Blues Club, Clarksdale, MS, at Delta Groove's 3rd Annual All Star Blues Revue and Outdoor Jam.
