Maurice John Vaughn
Modern Chicago Blues is often laced with liberal doses of R&B, Funk and rock, and this superb guitarist/multi-instrumentalist's work is no exception. Maurice John Vaughn is a quadruple threat (guitar, sax, keys, vocals) that writes sparkling original material in the best Windy City tavern tradition. Thumping bass lines and a percolating backbeat support fluid guitar licks that fuse blues and jazz. His band includes the irrepressible B.J. Emery on trombone and vocals along with bass and drums, and together they make funky, danceable electric blues that will put an itch in your socks.
