RONNIE WOOD & MICK TAYLOR
A Tribute to Jimmy Reed 2013 [no label, 1CD]
Live at The Cutting Room, New York City, NY; November 7, 2013 (first night of three). Good to very good audience recording.
From November 7 to 9, 2013, Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor paid tribute to bluesman Jimmy Reed at The Cutting Room in New York.
Brad Tolinksi of Guitar World magazine on the November 9 show:
During most of the evening, Wood and Taylor locked in on rhythm parts that were different, but complimentary, as they snaked and slithered around each other, avoiding lengthy solos in favor of tasty fills and sharp statements that would’ve made the economical Reed proud.
More often than not, the comically animated Wood, who sang and stood center stage, let his array of harmonicas do the majority of the soloing as he demonstrated his surprisingly fluid chops on the blues harp.
Patrick Doyle of Rolling Stone magazine wrote:
Wood and Taylor’s show last night at the tiny venue was a loose blast as they played the blues they grew up on – the setlist included no Rolling Stones songs and mostly explored Mississippi electric blues pioneer Jimmy Reed… While the pairing may seem surprising, the duo go way back: Wood was a huge fan of Taylor’s in England in the Sixties. He would even fill in for Taylor when he was stricken by stage fright in his band the Gods. “He used to be too nervous even to go on, and he’d say ‘Ronnie, play my bit for me,” Wood recalled in According to the Rolling Stones. “Mick Taylor always underestimated his talent”…
That dynamic was still evident last night, with Wood relishing the role of frontman – mugging in exaggerated poses while howling away on classics… They both harmonized on Reeds’ “Bright Lights Big City,” and traded raucous slide licks during an extended take on Reed’s “Going to New York.” The show recalled what those nights must have been like, or something you might see at a late night jam at Woody’s on the Beach, Woods’ ill-fated Miami nightclub – and proved the duo don’t need the Stones touring machine t0 put on a mindblowing show.
