New Music Release: Jon Cleary and The Absolute Monster Gentlemen: Mo Hippa

Jon Cleary "When You Get Back" Video

Jon Cleary, another blues man who has a birthday of August 11, 1962, is a funk and R&B musician based in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is originally from Cranbrook in Kent, England. I really like his piano playing, his singing and the songs that he writes.

He has performed with many blues heavy weights including Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, B.B. King, Ryan Adams, and Eric Burdon. His compositions have also been recorded by notable musicians including Taj Mahal and Bonnie Raitt.

His current band is Jon Cleary & the Absolute Monster Gentlemen and they have a new live release this month also. Mo Hippa captures the band at its best. On this album you'll get some funky New Orleans-styled barrelhouse blues, which was recorded at The Vanguard club in Sydney, Australia.
