ROCKIN' JOHNNY BAND: Man's Temptation

(1998/99 'Delmark') (65:41/14) Die Band verfolgt ihren eigenwilligen Weg, eine Mischung aus hinlänglich bekannten Chicagoer Blueselementen und eigenen Ideen, konsequent und letztlich überaus spannend / the band's got a unique approach to the blues idiom, traditional and inventive at the same time. Mostly originals giving the guys room to stretch out, instrumentally. ROCKIN' JOHNNY BURGIN - gtr/voc, MARTIN LANG - hca, RICK KREHER - gtr, SHO KOMIYA - bass, KENNY SMITH - drums.

 The Rockin' Johnny Band have mastered the sound and feel of post-war Chicago blues. They've done it by putting in time with the best Chicago blues musicians still working the taverns and clubs on the west side. And they did it on record with their '98 CD Straight Out Of Chicago (Delmark 720) as well as accompanying other Delmark artists like Jimmy Burns, Jimmie Lee Robinson, Golden "Big" Wheeler and Little Arthur Duncan on their Delmark albums. Everywhere they go the Rockin' Johnny Band wows crowds--and other musicians--Johnny with his creative and enthusiastic guitar work, and the band with its tight ensemble discipline and anything-can-happen reflexes. Take a listen. Give in to the temptation.

Rockin' Johnny

In mid-1990s Chicago, musical worlds burgeoned, collided and cohered. Young jazz players crafted their own take on different traditions. Rockers turned toward country. A few became rock stars. Through it all, blues singer/ guitarist Rockin' Johnny Burgin set his own pace. Back then, and today, a slew of disciples of this city's 12-bar traditions turned their tributes into overwrought clichés. Rockin' Johnny stood apart from all of that. He absorbed the right lesson from West and South Side mentors.

That was: economy should be a blues musician's ally. Pack a world into a few sharp notes and let the spaces sing for themselves. At the same time, Johnny stayed hungry enough to book his own groups throughout large cities and small towns, and tells that story in the song Shoe Leather And Tire Rubber. Meanwhile, he sharpened his skills when he served as a sideman for such legends as Tail Dragger, Jimmy Burns, Sam Lay, Pinetop Perkins, Billy Boy Arnold, Little Arthur Duncan and Jimmy Lee Robinson. Some outside gigs added fuel for his originality—like a memorable night at Beat Kitchen working alongside perverse R&B singer Andre Williams.

But when that decade ended, Johnny walked away from music. Johnny's early and, ultimately, brief time away from the stage echoed Wes Montgomery's decision in the early 1950s to hold factory jobs: the jazz guitarist had a a family to support, and remarked, "What I wanted to do didn't matter as much as what I had to do." A couple years ago, Johnny got back into performing and released NOW'S THE TIME in 2010.
