Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

JON ZEEMAN

Down On My Luck

2014-03-28

We live in a great age for the blues. There are plenty of mighty good blues guitarists out there, and mighty good blues singers, too. Jon Zeeman is both. Zeeman is a well-seasoned musician and earned his chops with professional work dating back into the 80s. He's got touring and recording credits with Susan Tedeschi, Janis Ian, and The Allman Brothers band. He cites Johnny Winter, B. B. King, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton as early influences. Zeeman breaks no new ground on Down on My Luck. You won't hear anything that would be out of place in an electric blues performance in a high-quality club. He delivers a skilled and entertaining set of music, and that's just fine.
