It is still hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact that this talented and oh so young man is dead. Blows my mind. He obviously loved music and loved playing as his frequent releasing of albums attests to. He played jazz, rock and blues and put his heart and soul in them all.
That being said this is his first blues album in eight years. This live recording from gigs in Toronto and London gives you an example of the best of Jeff Healey. He is onstage playing his guitar like very few others could. The songs are all covers, but he does them all justice and then some. His unique style of playing the guitar really brings out some interesting sounds from his Fender.
Jeff Healey died just before the album was released and it is a shame that he was not around to hear people praise it and feel the enjoyment he was bringing to music fans worldwide.
