Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band‘s LIVE! In Chicago is a live album that serves multiple masters. It documents guitarist Shepherd and vocalist Noah Hunt, anchored by the well-oiled Double Trouble rhythm section; drummer Chris ‘Whipper’ Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon. They are joined by veteran performers Buddy Flett and Bryan Lee. Lead singer Noah who sounds better than ever, has to take a backseat for much of this album to make room for the guest stars, Chicago legends Hubert Sumlin and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, which turn in fine performances, with Kenny‘s accompanying fat Strat tone searing into the stratosphere! All in all a galaxy of excellent support acts producing a unique and glorious blues event.
