Hubert Sumlin Raises the Dead

On Sunday, Jan. 6th, I made it out to the Jazz Standard to catch the last night "Howlin' for Hubert" show with, you guessed it, Hubert Sumlin, the Wolf's longtime lead guitarist. Ex-Dolls, Ex - Poindexter David Johansen puffed himself up admirably to fill in for the Wolf on vocals and harp. For the second half of the set James 'Blood' Ulmer joined the group and brought the sound to an astonishing sonic cacophony with his signature oblique but powerful inside/outside statements. They whole group chugged along nicely.
