JJ's fifth studio album since 2001 opens with a funky, smoky swamp-rock groover that recalls the great Tony Joe White at his most sultry. It's exactly the kind of bluesy jam that will help you understand why Grey and his band Mofro have become such a popular draw throughout the South. Georgia Warhorse also proves Grey's twin abilities as country-soul balladeer ("Gotta Know") and acoustic-flavored singer-songwriter ("King Hummingbird"). The album's top highlight is "The Sweetest Thing," featuring both Toots Hibbert and a horn section that is all about vintage Stax.
