   “Jay Gordon is a guitarist on the scene with big steps. He’s a blues rock guitarist by definition, full of explosiveness and individualism. He can definitely be counted among those who will put his stamp on the future of blues and rock. His name is spoken with respect from all top guitar players and fans alike. With his unique feelings and killer vocals, Jay Gordon represents a musician for whom there are no boundaries in his musical conquest. Blues Venom – No Cure, shows the whole story.”   – Vasja Ivanovski (BLUES IN BRITAIN)

“Jay Gordon and his band are one of our favorite ways to rock the blues!”

   Jay Gordon continues to shake the planet with his onslaught of Electric Voodoo Blues. When you listen to this CD you will see how Gordon has moved the blues forward into the 21st Century, infusing the music with the fire and power of rock while carving out his own place in the music world.

  “Blues Venom – No Cure” features songs like “Dockery’s Plantation” (for Robert Johnson), “World Blues,” “Slow Burn/Biker Mama,” “Red-Hot Tempered Woman” and more. There’s also a bonus track in honor of the late, great Phillip Walker, “Whisky Women And Fast Cars.” Gordon and Walker had previously collaborated on a 1994 CD together entitled Jaywalkin.

   Joining Gordon on this CD is Sharon Butcher (bass-vocals); Rich Gordon Lambert (drums); Harlen Spector (Hammond B3 and piano); Mario Ramirez (younger brother of the great Ritchie Valens) on harmonica; and Rich Wenzel (also on Hammond B3). “Blues Venom – No Cure” was created for all Blues-Rock fans everywhere. This may just be one of the most explosive Blues-Rock CDs ever recorded.
