    Recorded in December 1983, IN SESSION captures an in-concert jam between Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the latter of whom had become the hot blues guitarist of the year thanks to his debut Texas Flood, as well as his work on David Bowie's hit Let's Dance. Vaughan may have been the new news at the time, but King was not suffering either--he had a world-class supporting band and was playing as well as he ever had. In other words, the stage was set for a fiery, exciting concert and that's exactly what they delivered. Vaughan was clearly influenced by King--there are King licks all over his first two recorded efforts, and it was an influence that stayed with him to the end--and he was unafraid to go toe-to-toe with his idol. King must have been impressed, since IN SESSION never devolves into a mere cutting contest. Instead, each musician spurs the other to greater heights.

  • Critic Reviews
    CMJ (12/20/99, p.23) - "...a timeless piece of blues history."
    Down Beat (p.65) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "White-hot flames rage, subside and rage again as they lob grenade after grenade into impromptu arrangements....Their respect for each other is palpable..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Vaughan adopted much of King's style, both play in fat, lucid, stinging tones. Splitting the set, each flawlessly performs his classics..."
