Where is Joe?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Don't Explain (Audio CD)
There is no doubt that this is a very interesting and laid back compilation of cover versions and has great merit if you are looking to simply chill out. Beth Hart's voice is excellent and I will certainly be listening to more of her material so I suppose that it was worth buying the CD even for the introduction.
However, where is Joe?
Yes, there is a very decent guitarist accompanying Beth.........but not any better than some session musicians could. The Bonamassa uniqueness is not apparent and if I didn't know that it was Joe, well......
Still, overall, glad I bought.

Couldn't agree with you more but it's obviously not the done thing to voice any criticism of JB. He sounds even more average on the more or less live follow up. Improvisation does not appear to be his strong point, unlike the really great blues players. Maybe he's just releasing too much material too soon ?

Improvisation not his strong point? You're joking right?
