Jimmy Warren
"Live At Last"

Reviews and Info

Over the years Jimmy Warren has played with and has had his style compared to some of the best in Blues Biz and after listening to Jimmy's Debut Album, "Live At Last", it is certainly not hard to understand why. 

From the opening track of "Live At Last", Jimmy takes full control of his Blues Axe and the audience he is playing for, with constant clapping, whisltin', and cheering throughout, especially when he lets his guitar do the talking.

Beyond being a superb Blues Guitarist, Jimmy also has the vocals necessary to give us the full package, which I have found sometimes lacking in other performers I have not heard of before. With vocals rich and clear and a Guitar long ago tamed, with constant study, Jimmy brings us a live album that is complex, full, and polished, one which allows us to fully feel what it would be like to be there in person.

"Live At Last" is sure to please all blues fans whom like blues done in the styles of Joe Bonamassa, Joe Satriani, and Eric Clapton. 

Much more should be heard in the future for Jimmy. Looking forward to his next release.
