“One of rock’s most influential blues revivalists — Johnny Winter’s guitar shimmers with confident energy throughout,” says The Wall Street Journal of Winter’s latest album. ”All of the tracks are Saturday night foot-stompers that conjure up the glassy clinks of long necks and ding-dings of barroom pinball machines. Winter shows yet again that wailing the blues effectively demands sizzling focus and a wagonload of knowledge.”
“Songs like his 1969 cover of “Highway 61 Revisited” are astonishing showpieces of his lightning fast thumb-picked electric slide playing,” writes Rolling Stone. “Jimi Hendrix sought him out as a sideman, and Muddy Waters recognized his talent at first glance, becoming a friend and collaborator. The evening at the Westchester County Center also features Edgar Winter, and Leslie West of trailblazing hard rock trio Mountain, along with rock-and-roll Mainstay Rick Derringer and Kim Simmonds of iconic British blues-rock outfit Savoy Brown.
Collectively, these five titans of rock have culled 4 Grammy Awards, 10 Grammy Nominations, 14 Billboard-charting songs, 18 Billboard-charting albums, 10 Gold albums, and 4 Platinum albums. Johnny, Edgar, and Leslie all played the original Woodstock in August of 1969.
