Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Georgia Warhorse ups the ante on JJ's heady mix of Southern rock, blues and swampy soul. Reggae icon Toots Hibbert guests on radio track "Sweetest Thing" and guitar god Derek Trucks guests on another.

Review

...JJ Grey's rich comprehension of the South's learned musical roots and knack to make age-old ideas sound fresh. Grey and Mofro fuse rock with plenty of soul, groove-heavy blues, and dirty, infectious funk. The deep and introspective lyrics are a breath of fresh air. -- Relix

...world-beating blend of Southern rock, blues and Florida swamp soul. -- Billboard

Inspired, deliriously funky, deep-in-the-pocket front porch soul. -- Chicago Sun-Times

Intoxicating North Florida blues-rock, with hints of Memphis, Muscle Shoals and garage-band music. -- USA Today

JJ Grey concocts a vivid blend of blues, Southern rock and funk, complete with richly evocative lyrics and an easygoing sense of blue-collar storytelling...lucid, plainspoken American music. -- National Public Radio

After 2 years (almost to the day) since Mofro's release of Orange Blossoms, they release Georgia Warhorse...and not to disappoint.

To be entirely honest, I'm a huge Mofro fan, and Orange Blossoms didn't really "do" it for me. Country Ghetto was indeed a great album, but was an indication on the band's lack of direction. I expected Country Ghetto to be more of a Blackwater or Lochloosa, but it wasn't. Again, it was good...but different than what I expected. JJ had replaced that deep organ and harmonica sound for a brass section, and it worked for Country Ghetto, but I didn't feel it working for Orange Blossoms. Orange Blossoms was full of the upbeat energy that listeners love to dance to, but it seemed to lack the passion that JJ bellows from his gut. After OB, I was apprehensive that the band was going to pursue this new, semi-overproduced direction. Not to say I still wouldn't have been a Mofro fan, because Pearl Jam did the same thing...and still doing it. I'm still a huge Pearl Jam fan, but prefer their older, early 90's tracks; however, Georgia Warhorse could very well be renamed "Redemption".

Georgia Warhorse may be my favorite album so far. The simplistic nature of Mofro is once again found. You can hear JJ's soul cry in King Hummingbird (the song gives me chills). Gotta Know and Lullaby are extremely moving songs as well. All and The Sweetest Thing are both feel good jams, with styles learned from the previous 2 albums, but didn't neglect the soulful jive. The album is full of that melodic, three-chord artistry that will humble you, making you appreciate every aspect of life. The album breathes a reverence, which makes them unlike any other band.

Basically, Mofro went back to what it knows best...

Stax, Otis, Cocker, Van Morrison, Little Feat...

Georgia Warhorse will empty, evert and cleanse your soul. Then it'll hand it back to you shiny and new.

But unlike, say, Blackwater (so love that drumming!!!), this one had to grow on me. It also needs more Hance, harmonica, luscious keyboard licks... in short, the stuff that elicits groans.

A bit lazy and overly-repetitive in parts (how many Diyo-dayo's and Sweetest Things do we need?... we get it). But in whole, (and in part due to its stomp/boogie cuts) JJ et al. have proffered some of my most joyful moments available lately. As so with all the other works, it is sublime.

Bought this album based on hearing a song on XM radio in a rental car and reviews here. This guy is a hidden gem. His music is a little bit of everything. I just can't believe this guy hasn't blown up yet. He is seriously talented. Based on this album, I went and got his back catalog. I am glad I did. This is coming from a lifelong Hip-Hop fan.

I heard a review of this album on NPR. Since I am always looking for something interesting and have recently discovered this "funky bluesy" genre, I thought that I would give it a chance even though I never heard of the artist before. It was money well spent! Solid lyrics, great melodies and rocking hooks. The title song is the best of a very good bunch. If you are looking for something a bit different than your standard R&B, pop, neo-soul, country or blues, give this one a try; you won't be disappointed.

If I had never heard Black Water, Lochloosa, or Country Ghetto this would be a 5 star. It's a great album, but when compared to the previous albums....it falls a hair short. Still, it's better than 90 percent of the stuff other bands do on their best days. Stand outs are "Georgia Warhorse", "King Hummingbird" and "Slow, Hot and Sweaty". Not quite as bluesy as I like my JJ, and I think that's the only reason it gets 4 because it is very good.

Pardon me for just finding out about this incredible band over 4th of July weekend, but that is how long I have been listening to them! Already have tickets to the Telluride Blues & Brews Fest to see them!

Georgia Warhorse is an all around CLASSIC Album! Already in my top 10 favorite albums! "Georgia Warehorse" and "Lullaby" are great songs! "King Hummingbird" could be the song that puts them into the mainstream but we as fans don't need to that to happen!

All the other fans do not need me to tell them to go get this album, they already have it!! Cannot wait to see these guys live!!!

They never cease to amaze me with the lyrical genius and musicianship. JJ wrote most of the music himself which places him in a most respectable position amongst todays song writers, and has some of the most soulful and heartfelt music this side of the blues. I want to go see them live someday.

I have just recently discovered JJG&M, and wonder how they have slipped under my radar for so long. Although Georgia Warhorse isn't their best effort, it's very much worth listening to...over and over again. They have a different blend of styles from funk to blues to folk to rock, and all of them are performed very well.
