Product Description

Product Description

Based in Jacksonville, Florida, JJ Grey & Mofro (formerly just Mofro) are creators of a singular musical mix they like to call "front porch soul". JJ Grey is a gifted singer/songwriter whose distinctly Southern lyrics play out over Mofro's dazzling display of fire-breathing R&B, swampy blues, aching soul and funky, Dixie-fried rock. He is wildly popular in his native state and throughout the Southeast USA, with additional key fan bases in New York, Boston, Chicago, Indianapolis, Denver, Seattle and San Francisco. Despite being released on a relatively low-profile indie, his two previous releases (credited as Mofro) have sold impressively, with 2001's 'Blackwater' at nearly 22'000 scans and 2004's 'Lochloosa' over 24'000 (USA Only). JJ Grey's mushrooming audience is based in large part on a stellar live show that has earned him a strong national touring base, routinely playing 500-1500 seat venues in the above-mentioned markets. The group averages 120 dates a year at clubs, theatres and festivals across the USA. Although presently an unknown quantity in the UK, this new release is set to start spreading Grey & Mofro's reputation across the Atlantic.

Amazon.co.uk

Within the soul-drenched music of northern Florida's JJ Grey and band, the roots run as deep as the influences are indelible. "War" and "By My Side" sound like Southern-fried Sly and the Family Stone. "Turpentine" recalls the swamp funk of Tony Joe White. Both "A Woman" and "The Sun Is Shining Down" suggest long-lost Otis Redding sessions in Muscle Shoals, while "Mississippi" takes Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" on a trip down to the delta. From the harmonica-laced country blues of the title track to the gospel piano and choir of "On Palestine," Grey's music compensates with conviction for what it lacks in originality. --Don McLeese

How to best describe this album...? Bluesy, rootsy, groovy, funky, soulful, thoughtful.. These would all be good words. JJ Grey's vocal's are superb throughout, equally adept at slower soulful numbers and low down and dirty numbers. His harp playing, guitar playing and keyboard playing are also great and the band are just knockout - with perhaps a special mention to Adam Score on Hammond Organ. There are a number of stand-out tracks on this album - although "By My Side" just edges it in my opinion. Production is a bit smoother than the previous albums "Lochloosa" and "Blackwater", and I would argue the songs are slightly better-crafted. Fans of the earlier stuff need not worry though, there's plenty of good stuff to enjoy on this album. One of my picks of 2007 without a doubt.

My first experience of Mofro - I heard 'A Woman' and fell in love with it so thought I'd give the album a try. Each track brings something different so it's hard to categorise the style of music (maybe blues rock?) but it's great to drive or cook to, or just to have in the background (it's not too intrusive) but when you do 'listen' to it, it's really good!
