Guitarist Jimmy McIntosh spins an all-star line-up of talents into an equally impressive recording.  On Jimmy McIntosh and… the Las Vegas based talent gets by with a little help from some notable musical friends. Sometimes such assemblages don’t live up to the billing, this is not one of those times. The music here is as bluesy and smoking as a Memphis barbecue joint. The song list is weighted towards the lead’s own compositions, with some nice takes on compositions by Duke Ellington and Keith Richards. McIntosh is joined by fellow guitarists John Scofield, Mike Stern and Ronnie Wood (of The Rolling Stones), each on various tracks. Ivan Neville (of the Neville Brothers, The Meters and others) plays organ. Drummer Toss Panos along with bassists Keith Hubacher, John Humphrey and Dan Lutz round out the outstanding roster of musicians. When an artist can gather an array of talents of this much heft, it generally is a statement of their own musical acumen, and that clearly is the case here..
