Like Kenny Wayne Shep­herd, Jonny Lang emerged in the 90s as a fire­brand blues prodigy, but even way back on 1997’s Lie To Me his soul­ful side was ap­par­ent – both in his play­ing and voice. What’s show­cased here is a ma­tured com­pelling song­writer who com­mits to ev­ery track with a pas­sion and au­then­tic­ity that can reach out to both fans of edgier and groovier mod­ern fuzz blues from the Auerbach and Gary Clark Jnr schools, and also ap­pre­ci­a­tors of clas­sic rock and soul. So Make A Move is more Ste­vie Won­der than Ste­vie Ray but the feel some play­ing touch on Wis­dom and Signs get closer to the Delta source than most right now. David Hands Down­load Wis­dom
