JP Blues: Track by track

Your crusty chronicler is an individual who does his own thing. Still, when Examiner asked for support for their then new “List” format, it was nigh impossible not to be open-minded about it. So, with that spirit of unity in mind, your rockin’ reviewer presents this series—“Track by Track” in which we review certain select CDs literally “track by track”.

In this edition of the series we (ahem) examine JP Blues’ latest disc Make Room at the Table. But first, for those not up on their indie artists and bluesmen, a bit of music history. JP Blues, born John Pagano, is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who first picked up a guitar at the age of 8. Soon “schooled” on the blues by bluesman Sam “Bluzman” Taylor, the Pagano grew to become a bluesman himself.

Pagano has since gone on to jam with or open for a number of well-known acts including: Michael Falzarano (Hot Tuna), Pete Sears (Jefferson Starship), Buddy Cage (New Riders), Phil Grande (Joe Cocker), Scott Holt (Buddy Guy), Nathaniel Peterson and Dennis Innessibuw (Robert Plant), Johnny Winter, Robben Ford and Cactus to name a few. On his most recent release, Make Room at the Table, he is occasionally assisted by other artists on each audio offering.
