Rollin’ With IT

John McNamara

BMM 2017

Review by David Bowling


It is a long way from Australia to Memphis, Tennessee, but John McNamara seems to have successfully made the journey both physically and musically. The musical result is a solid album of blues titled Rollin’ With It.

McNamara is one of those underappreciated guitar masters, but he also possesses a wonderfully soulful voice. Backed by some of Memphis’ finest backing musicians, complete with a sparkling horn section, he romps through seven original and three cover songs.

If you are looking for some smooth and expressive blues, Rollin’ With It is a good place to start.
