Shortly after departing the popular Washington DC area blues band The Nighthawks, of which he was a founding member, Jimmy Thackery re-emerged with the power trio Jimmy Thackery & The Drivers in order to put the spotlight firmly on his aggressive and distinctive blues rock guitar style. These selections from Thackery‘s Blind Pig years represent what many fans and critics alike consider to be his most vibrant and creative period to date. Special guests include Lonnie Brooks, Duke Robillard, John Mooney and Reba Russell.
This album as you would expect showcases Thackery‘s masterfull guitar work but does expolit a little weaker of a tool in his voice. Still, this music will drive you to drive, so hit the road and don’t forget to pack the Essential Jimmy Thackery on the trip.
