It is basically BB's vocal and Doc's piano until the very end when BB's guitar - unheard until then - contributes to a terrific finish. Perhaps that's what's wrong with the world.
I would, however, urge those who have enjoyed Mon Amour Du Rock N Roll - Various - Rock NRoll In My Bed work of these artists in the past to run out and buy this CD. Very good! One of B. King's best latter-day albums, "Let the Good Times Roll" is a terrific collection of 18 songs usually associated with jump blues master Louis Jordan.
His take on classics like "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" and "Let the Good Times Roll" are less boisterous and more laid-back than Jordan's, but he sings each and every song so well, with impeccable timing and phrasing, and the stellar combo never ever sets a finger wrong. King's take on the sexist and funny "Ain't That Just Like A Woman" is pure delight, a joyously swaggering, swinging rendition which I listened to three or four times in a row the first time I played the CD in my car on my way to work.
You just can't sit still to that one. Jones was 74 at the time of recording, by the way. King was only 73, a regular spring chicken. Get Im Only Shooting Love - Various - Damn! MP3 Top 100 CD. It is one of the best, most mature albums of King's year career.
I listened to Louis Jordan performing many of these same songs just the other day and couldn't wait to hear how BB's new album would compare. Rest assured that BB has captured the spirit and the heart and soul of Jordan's music.

Though King has recently tossed in a few of Jordan's songs in his concerts and albums, it is a rare and unexpected treat to listen to a whole album dedicated to him.
I saw BB in concert in September at his blues festival and can testify to the fact that he is just as good as ever. He seemed to be having more fun than he has ever had, too. This album proves it.
A great album. BB King does a great Illuminata - ceo - White Magic covering 18 sides by one of his top influences.

Please try again later. I consider myself a fan of B. King; I consider myself a bigger fan of Louis Jordan. This project does nothing to add to either of their legacies.

His standard single note guitar solos don't really fit stylistically, and his delivery of the lyrics sound tired and out of pocket.
For Jordan fans, you're better off sticking to the original material. For King fans, it's probably best to skip this project. One person found this helpful.

King, known primarily as a straight blues musician, has impressive range -- and range is needed to do justice to the many different kinds of music Jordan has bequeathed to the world. King's voice is not what it used to be. John aka Mac Rebennack.
