Ronnie Earl – I Feel Like Goin’ On

front

Guitarist Ronnie Earl recorded the majority of the instrumental release I Feel Like Goin’ On live in the studio with no overdubbing. As one of the best contemporary blues guitarists around, Earl naturally shows off his prowess on these 11 cuts, with sturdy assistance from Dave Limina on piano/organ, Jimmy Mouradian on bass, Lorne Entress on drums, and special guest guitarist Jose Alvares. On the whole, I Feel Like Goin’ On is tight, passionate, and gritty, especially on the soul-blues of “Hey Jose,” “Blues for Otis Rush,” “Howlin’ for My Darlin’,” and “Travelin’ Heavy.” While the majority of the album is uptempo, Earl does slow down the pace on the beautiful ballad “Donna” and the traditional gospel-flavored “Mary Don’t You Weep,” featuring the only vocal appearance on the disc, by the Silver Leaf Gospel Singers.
