Get Your Back Into It! [CD]

Nick Moss Band featuring Dennis Gruenling

Get Your Back Into It! [CD]

Modern day Chicago blues warriors present 14 original songs inspired by the electrifying blues sounds of 1940s through 1960s, and performed with taste, sly humor and pure joy. From locomotive shuffles to deep, slow blues, Moss shines with a Willie Dixon-like ability to write and sing the blues’ honest truth.  “An incendiary brew...fiery fretwork and wailing harmonica...soulful, playful and exuberant.” —Living Blues
