JJ Grey And Mofro Georgia Warhorse (4*)

Saturday 31 December 2011

A mention of a Derek Trucks guest spot in Mojo's review of the album pointed me this way, and an initial listen revealed the presence of Toots Hibbert as well. But regardless of the calibre of the sit-ins, it's the quality of the material and the performance that's important, and Grey's warm vocals and the relaxed southern groove that runs throughout makes for a pleasant listening experience without demanding too much.  Named for a grasshopper, this one mightn't have me racing out in search of the other four albums listed at iTunes, but they're on the shopping list. File under tasteful Southern gently funky Muscle Shoals music.
