While John Hammond is best known for keeping alive the legacies of legends like Jimmy Reed, Son House and John Lee Hooker, he’s occasionally shown his own ability to color outside the lines. Hammond has not only managed to transcend all the bar-band twaddle currently being churned out by most contemporary blues players, but found time to spit out an album full of Tom Waits covers (2001’s Wicked Grin) and deigned to cover the likes of The Rolling Stones and Billie Holiday.
