Guitar Man

Speaking of guitar slingers, Tony Janflone Jr. has released his fourth CD, Tony Janflone Jr. Live (YNOT Records) ,recorded at the South Side’s Blues Café.

Janflone’s band puts out a big-town sound, thanks in no small part to the interplay between keyboardist Tom Salyers and saxophonist Curtis Swift. The band is extremely tight, almost to the point of being slick. Janflone is no slouch as a guitarist (sounding a lot like Carlos Santana) or as a vocalist, with a strong, soulful, expressive voice. Bassist George Elliott adds some great harmony vocals. Outstanding disk !
