at this unexpected headline show at the Torrington, Jimmy charmed, cajoled, and ultimately won over his new found audience
with a sparkling show. There's nothing remotely new about Jimmy - save for a handful of impressive self pennned blues rock
outings and shuffles. But ultimately it's the man's "joie de vivre" and T Bone Walker style guitar that hits
In a lively two set show, Jimmy threw in his take on ol' T Bone,
added some BB King, threw in the occasional Howlin Wolf and got the whole room dancing with John Fogerty's "Run Through
The Jungle". The fact that Jimmy and the boys were able to blaze their way through a brace of Chuck Berry and Jimi
Hendrix numbers , said more about their innovative arrangements and fine playing than any paucity of material.
Jimmy C & The Blues Dragons take you back to somewhere roundabout
the late 60's, early 70's in a spirited fashion, as if they've just hit on a treasure chest of blues rock songs.
the fine response from the audience, most people in the room were only too happy to undertake the same musical discovery.
