The Jon Spear Band
“Hot Sauce”
Self Released
Publicity: Betsie Brown, Blind Raccoon
By Peter “Blewzzman” Lauro © August 2017

Because they are located all over the world, I don’t get to see too many of the bands whose CDs I review.  That said, at the Blind Raccoon Showcase hosted by Betsie Brown during IBC week, I did have the pleasure of catching the Jon Spear Band live and I now envy those of you who can do so on a regular basis.  That, combined with having reviewed their debut release, had me looking very forward to working with “Hot Sauce” - the band’s newest CD.

“Hot Sauce” consists of twelve original tracks with various members of the band putting their pens to work.  And since there’s no reason to fix anything that’s not broke, the band has stayed intact for all of its three releases.  They are: Jon Spear on rhythm and lead guitar and vocals; Dara James on lead guitar, harp and vocals; Andy Burdetsky on bass and backing vocals; and John Stubblefield on drums and backing vocals.  Additional artists include: Ron Holloway on sax; Nate Brown on congas; Butch Taylor on keyboards; Matty Metcalfe on accordion; and Nathaniel Star and Yolanda Jones on backing vocals.    

If you are so sick of the crap that’s going on around you and you’re feeling like you just gotta get the hell out of this place before you explode, then you just might need a “Geographical Cure”.  Just as an apple a day is said to keep the doctor away, there’s also nothing like a change of scenery every once in a while.  If you allow it, along with its lyrics, the island beat on this one can be transcending.  As a matter of fact, I myself am already feeling better.

This one’s called “It Was A Really Great Gig” but it’s the next line - “At least that’s how it started out” - that really tells the story.  You see, the lead singer and a pretty girl were flirting from the stage.  This girl just happened to be the girlfriend of the local gang leader who saw it all go down.  As the punk grabbed the singers leg, he whacked him in the head with the mic stand.  Oh yeah, it gets worse but you’ll have to hear the rest for yourself.  Musically, like the story, it’s a feisty one.  The exuberant rhythm and rollicking guitars are the perfect accompaniment to the raucous tale.

I once asked another artist how his “Stop that grinnin’, drop some denim, let’s get it on” pick up line went, now here I am wondering how “Could you be my ‘Hot Sauce’ tonight?” worked for Jon Spear?  Although the song does mention several varieties of chili peppers, it’s the music causing the real heat.  Along with some very soulful vocals, Dara’s laying down some of the discs more fiery guitar licks; Andy and John pounding out some burning rhythm and guest star Ron is blowing flames out of that sax of his.  As the title track should be, this is one of the disc’s best.  

“Hello!”  Hello?“  "Hello, are you there?”  Helloooooooo, I hear you in the background.“  "Damn it, 'Butt-Dial Kyle’ is it again.  Yep, I’m sure all of us know, and/or have been, a Kyle ourselves at many times.  Clever and very humorous lyrics about a very common situation.  Along with the usual great rhythm and guitar leads, this one features several organ and piano highlights from Butch.  

Being a veteran myself, like Jon and the guys, I also have the "Blues For A Soldier”.  This one pays homage to all of the brave American’s - and their families - who sacrifice so much of their lives in order to keep the rest of us out of harm’s way.  Like the lyrics, and the way they’re being sung by Dara, the music is compelling as well.  Simply said, this is a very powerfully presented powerful message.  Thanks!

Now the smell of “Cheap Whisky And Stale Cigarettes” may remind you of some of the juke joints you frequent, but the song is actually about putting a bad situation behind you.  Another very well written and well done track that features strong vocals from Jon and sharp harp blowin’ by Dara.

Other tracks on “Hot Sauce” include: “Bottom Of The Bottle”, “Noah’s Blues”, “Pierre Jourdan”, “Hit The Quarter”, “Wintertime” and “Natchez Burning”.

You can find The Jon Spear Band simply by going to www.jonspearband.com
or liking their FB page by searching “Jon Spear Band”.  Once you do, please tell them the Blewzzman sent you.

fingeringtrinkets-blog:

“Lonesome Day Blues” was recorded by Blind Willie McTell (as Hot Shot Willie) with his wife, Kate McTell, on February 22, 1932 in Atlanta. “Rollin’ Mama Blues,” “Mama Let Me Scoop For You,” and “Searching the Desert for the Blues,” also collaborations with Kate, were recorded in the same session. pretty much my favorites of Blind Willie McTell, if not the genre.

Andy Cohen Live!

By Robert B. Rubenstein

As it is said, “And a great time was had by all.”

This is certainly true for the evening of February 4 when a group of congregants and guests were entertained by Mr. Andy Cohen, singer, guitarist, and music historian, currently living in Memphis, Tennessee.
