Andy Aledort has been a constant presence in the New York blues/rock scene for the past 25+ years, fronting numerous bands while playing supporting roles in others. He is the Senior Editor of "Guitar World", the largest selling guitar publication in the world. He has jammed with the greatest of the blues/rock artists, made two instructional videos with Double Trouble, written articles for other publications, and is currently working on a series of Jimi Hendrix instructional videos in conjunction with the Jimi Hendrix Estate. So what does he do during all of his idle hours?

Somehow in the midst of all of the above, he has managed to find time to release a very fine CD with his band the Groove Kings. "Put a Sock In It" is a delightful mix of blues and rock blending together nicely both covers and originals. The band opens with a cover of the great Freddie King instrumental "The Stumble" and then moves into several originals, all of which I found enjoyable. My favorites on the CD include the hard blues/rock "Wish", the powerful slide-laced "Piston Drivin' Mama", the Freddie King classic "Someday After A While" (featuring some very hot guitar licks), and another slide monster "Goin' Down the Delta". Throughout the recording, the songs vary in style and tempo, but each is a credible offering.

This recording by Andy Aledort is a splendid effort and should go high up on you wish list of future purchases. You will find him to be an excellent and diverse guitarist, strong singer, good songwriter, and supported by a most capable band. (Bluesrockers)
