Jeff & the Jumptones

Jeff Hayes doesn't aim to carve any new niches in the blues, except his own. With this self-titled CD, he and his Jumptones turn on the beat nonstop – classic, modern, and original. Such Hayes originals as "Tragedy" and "Juke Joint Jenny" neatly find their place with Freddie King's "Sugar Sweet" and a couple of Luther Allison songs, plus offerings from Darrell Nulisch and Tab Benoit. Serve hot with barbecue and Cajun food.
