Eddie Shaw's Wolf Gang is one of Chicago's hardest working blues
outfits, with the deepest of roots. Frontman Eddie Shaw and pianist
Detroit Junior were members of blues icon Howling Wolf's band, and
the guitarist and drummer are both second generation bluesmen: Vaan
Shaw is the son of Eddie, and Tim Taylor the son of guitar great
Eddie Taylor. The Wolf Gang's Delmark debut showcases their patented
one-foot-in-the-tradition, one-in-the-future sound.
Personnel: Eddie Shaw, vocals & tenor sax; Eddie Vaan Shaw, Jr., guitar; Detroit Junior, piano; Lafayette "Shorty" Gilbert, bass; Tim Taylor, drums.
