Guitarist and singer Randy Pavlock hails from the official blues capital of Texas, Navasota. Whatever you think of the Texas Legislature’s having bestowed that honor without consulting any of us, Pavlock has a solid grounding in the blues, having misspent his youth hanging around places such as Neal’s Hideaway, perhaps the last real juke joint in this part of the country. He’s done his homework on record, too, soaking up the music of everybody from Navasota icon Mance Lipscomb to Lightnin’ Hopkins, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix.

Pavlock has also spent a lot of time in Austin, where he found friends and mentors in two unfortunately now-departed drummers and singers, Uncle John Turner and Buddy Miles. Turner, famous for having played with Johnny Winter, played some gigs with Pavlock and showed him around the Austin scene. Miles, whose Band of Gypsys album with Hendrix had a big impact on Pavlock, joined his protégé on a cover of “Hey Joe” on Pavlock’s new CD, Miles to Go.

The Hendrix influence comes through loud and clear, too, on the doomy “Prison Land”. But Pavlock makes it work; this ain’t Blue Cheer. Pavlock does a good job, too, on the T-Bone Walker classic “Cold, Cold Feeling,” the Freddie King instrumental “Side Tracked” and the funky Stax staple “Breaking up Somebody’s Home”. He makes each song his own while staying true to the original. Pavlock’s own songs on the CD run the gamut from shuffles such as “I’m Crazy” to the wistful ballad “All the Things,” about the sad fact of deeds undone and words unsaid. The instrumental title track is downright pretty. “Where I’m Going” rocks along gently with some neat turns of phrase and some nice, understatedly stinging guitar.

Randy Pavlock has found his own voice and continues to grow, as both a performer and a songwriter. (Jay Brakefield)
