John Németh

One of the real pleasures I have is hearing a new voice that just blows me away being rooted deep in the blues tradition, yet singing and playing with an authority that would have been at home on a blues recording 40 years ago. Born in Idaho, John Németh has been growing a body of followers including guitarist Junior Watson and Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin and after a couple of CDs has signed with Blind Pig and has a new CD, "Magic Touch," that is a stunning release. He is simply a wonderful singer that to this listener suggests Junior Parker mixed with Bobby Radcliffe and an equally superb harp player. This CD is produced by Anson Funderburgh (who plays on 1 track) with Németh backed by a terrific band that includes great Junior Watson on guitar and Kaz Kazanoff and the Texas Horns. Németh blasts off with a strong reworking of Junior Wells' "Blues Hit Big Town" (great harp along with the vocal) before followed by the funky originals Blue Broadway and the title track, both sporting strong crying vocals and terrific playing from Watson (who gets into a rock and roll vein on the title track). Willie Dixon's "Sit and Cry the Blues", was one of Buddy Guy's earliest recordings and the version here with Watson's evocation of Ike Turner's trebly playing on Guy's original as Németh's convincingly the lyrics in his natural soulful style. "She Did Not Show" sports some harp in a Rice Miller vein on a blues set to the "Sittin' on Top of the World/ Some Cold Rainy Day" melody, while Up to "No Good" evokes Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home," with more exquisite harp playing. "Come On," a polka-blues (yes you read that correctly) closes this album on a fresh, delightful note.

I'm one that grows tired of same old sounds coming out of my "box" at home. I have to say, John Nemeth and his band are a refreshing surprise for me. John's strong vocals and tasteful harmonica remind me there is still exciting new music on the horizon. It's just hard to find it sometimes. He's also smart enough to take a step back and let his band play, and they're tight. All the reviews I've read praise the man and his band. I understand they put on a good show as well. I've had the chance to see him but haven't. I won't make that mistake next time.

He has an excellent voice and the songs are really good! They feel like a mix of traditional blues with a hint of rockabilly. If I had to pick one song as a favorite, one of his original songs, "She Did Not Show" would probably be it. However, his cover of Willie Dixon's "Sit and Cry the Blues" is a close second! The traditional songs feel fresh. Do yourself a favor and buy this disc!

In my opinion, this is the best of John's four releases to date. More straight-ahead blues and R&B than his newer CD (which is also very good). The only disappointment is that is doesn't capture his live-performance energy, which is considerable! Hopefully, he'll release a live CD one of these days.
