ORANGE BLOSSOMS is a masterpiece of soul shaking music, as JJ's deep Southern roots and skill as a storyteller shine through, whether he's rocking with gospel-tent fervor or slowly winding his raspy voice around a lyric of heartbreak and loss. It's an aggressively groove-driven record fueled by JJ's gritty, smoldering vocals and funk-infused guitar playing.

Reviews:

I accidentally discovered this album through an attempted act of kindness gone wrong. Well, gone selfish, anyway. I had a promotional copy of this CD and was planning on giving it to a friend of mine who’s really (I mean, REALLY) into blues. With it being on Alligator Records and all, I was sure it would be more up his alley than mine. I decided at the last minute to check it out before I just handed it over to him. There’s where the act of kindness went awry. That sucker has barely left my CD player since. Soulful, rockin’, passionate, guitar-laden are a few words that come to mind. The title track has a hook that just won’t quit, and practically begs you to sing along. Which I do. Repeatedly. At the top of my lungs. Other faves include “Everything Good Is Bad” and “Higher You Climb,” but the whole dang thing is good.
