Guitarist Kenny Brown is known primarily as the “right hand man” for legendary bluesman R.L Burnside, but with the release of this solo album, that definition will be in for a revision. Brown has absorbed much in his 20 year tenure with Burnside, knowing when to play it raw, and when it slide it sweet. Drawing on traditional material such as a stirring “You Don’t Know My Mind” or “Cocaine Bill,” Brown seems at home with either amped up electric blues or a more delicate (but still driven) folk style. Backed by Takeeshi Imura on bass and the hard-hitting Cedric Burnside on drums, Brown deserves further attention on his own merits. This is delta blues, 2003. Long may it reign.
