The long-awaited latest installment of Wayne Kahn's documentation of D.C.'s blues and jazz scene. The Blues You Hate to Lose, Volume 2, has just been issued on Right on Rhythm. Like the prior volume, this one collects a number of mostly live performances, although there are some unissued studio tracks. Given that many of these performers have documented recordings, this is not as a valuable release perhaps, but Wayne Kahn's booklet provides a detailed discussion of a slice of DC's music history. And then there is the music. Plenty of first rate stuff to be heard including the opening Be Bop Girl, by Robert Lighthouse, a rocking band performance with Kevin McKendree on keyboards. It is followed by a nice Cathy Ponton King vocal on Tore Up. John Cocuzzi is not an unknown name in jazz circles, and his Wabash Blues with Big Joe, Joe Stanley and Jeff Sarli is a nice jazz blues vocal with Chris Watling adding a strong baritone solo after Stanley's solo ends.

Bruce Ewan displays his chops on the studio cut. Blues in the Dark, showing why he is such a highly regarded harp player, followed by Honey Joe Brown, a new name to me, with his ballad singing on the lament You Don't Know What Love Is. The Nighthawks, Linwood Taylor and Tom Principato are heard on representative cuts, while the version of Okie Dokie Stamp, by Big Joe and the Dynaflows allows guitarist Ivan Appleruth to shine. More top harp is heard on Doug Jay's Slinky, while Artie Sherman on keyboards and Steve Jacobs conjure up Jimmy McGriff and Albert Collins on Left Overs. Other selections feature the J Street Jumpers and Joe Stanley. In all, there is plenty of terrific music here, excellent annotations, and the sound seems better than the earlier edition. Wayne has received plenty of praise for the first volume in this series, and this new one will certainly earn him more well deserved kudos.
