  • The Bullfrog Blues Club - The Albert Bar South Parade Pier - Thursday April 18th 2002

The younger and, many would say, more talented brother of Mick, Chris is an accomplished songwriter, musician and bandleader in his own right. This Jagger outfit play what might be called Country & Tavern: an English version of that crossroads where Louisiana folk meets London R&B. The band give a storming live set featuring original material alongside funky re-workings of classics such as Freddie King's `Big Leg Woman', which ends with a high powered zydeco meltdown.

Chris Jagger is never so happy as when getting the best out of his band and is no slouch when backing himself on guitar or winding up the rhythm section on washboard.

"If The Faces or The Pogues had been from Louisiana, they would sound exactly like this.....Jagger is a sly, sharp songwriter whose lyrics often recall the likes of Sammy Kahn more than any rock star" ... Tony Parsons, The Daily Telegraph.
