Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Big Jack goes back even further to his roots with a mostly acoustic outing, which also features fellow M.C. Records artist and 2001 & 2003 Grammy nominee Kim Wilson on harmonica. The Memphis Barbecue Sessions also features legendary blues pianist Pinetop Perkins on two tracks. The Memphis Barbecue Sessions is a tasty mix of Johnson originals and interpretations of some of his blues favorites from Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Little Walter and Elmore James
This laid-back, mostly acoustic session has the vibe of friends gathered on the front porch of a shotgun shack during a hot Delta night. But the playing couldn't get much more deep and fine, especially when guitarist-singer Big Jack Johnson settles into the sweet, sad melody of his Howlin' Wolf-inspired "Humming Blues" with Kim Wilson at his side, conjuring the ghost of Sonny Boy Williamson with his harmonica. Octogenarian Pinetop Perkins adds dirty pearls of roadhouse piano to that number and "Lonesome Road." And Wilson picks up a guitar and sings along on "I'm Going Out Walking"--the first recorded hint of Wilson's considerable six-string abilities. But the disc's brightest moments are Johnson's, as he transforms John Lee Hooker's "Bluebird" into a T-Bone Walker-style workout, puts Muddy Waters licks behind "I'm Going Out Walking," and breaks up his heavy-handed strumming with hummingbird-speed fills, hammer-ons, and other guitar tricks. It's more proof that Johnson--either live on any of the hundreds of dates he plays each year or in the studio--is one of the reigning masters of contemporary Mississippi blues. --Ted Drozdowski
