John and the Sisters - John and the SistersAs in Toronto blues belter John Dickie and the Sisters Euclid, the instrumental outfit led by guitarist Kevin Breit. A versatile musician (Folk Alarm, Supergenerous), Breit hit paydirt playing on Norah Jones’ two albums (she performs his song “Humble Me” on her latest). This live-off-the-floor album is a spasmodic affair, lurching from Tom Waits-style junkyard noise on “Gun” to the Band-inspired “A Better Way.” But it does include one genuine gem: the stirring ballad “Faithful,” a nod to Little Feat’s Lowell George.
