Album Notes

This album was recorded live at Sweet Rhythm a famous jazz club in New York City on February 1, 2006. It features blues perrenial Michael Packer on guitar and vocals. James Cotton's piano player David Maxwell. Guitarist Jimmy Vivino from the Conan O'Brien show. Lou Marini from the Blues Brothers and Saturday Night live. Cuban born harmonica ace Felix Cabrera. Ed Jackson on bongos. King Bear on bass and Nat Seeley on drums.


If Michael Packer's earthy singing takes a backseat to his musicians, it's testimony to the Staten Island's guitarist's ability to assemble a band. A cast of aces, David Maxwell (piano), Jimmy Vivino (guitar), Felix Cabrera (harp) and Lou Marini (sax) joins the band for the self released Live @ Sweet Rhythm.

Apart from solos all around, Knock Myself Out' contains a dynamite sax/slide guitar duel and Packer's Big Apple based adaptation of 'Born in Chicago' rips. The playlist is mostly limited to standards but it is still entertaining including 'Somebody Have Mercy', 'The Thrill Has Gone' and 'I'm Tore Down. Things get really cooking towards the album's end with Marini and Maxwell hammering out 'Killing Floor'and when 'As the Years Go Passing By' showcases a haunting harmonica lead-in and Cabrera's sensitive vocal.
