Jeff & the Jumptones

Live on Red River

Roll up the rug. The big-city blues sound of Jeff & the Jumptones fairly begs for a live setting, so here's 15 shuffles and a few belly-rubbers for your living room dancing pleasure. Recorded at the Red Eyed Fly, Jeff Hayes keeps the rhythm upbeat and ditches draggy blues solos in favor of rocket-fueled faves like "She's Tuff" and "Sugar Sweet." **
