J Curve Roots & Blues presents a second offering (see also Triple Stop JCR 8001) of masterful performances by the renowned guitarist Scotty Anderson. Classic Scotty, showcases his legendary virtuosity and versatility with a set of songs from the worlds of rock, pop, country and bluegrass. He is joined by guest vocalists on hits from the 60s and 70s: Bill Wood on ZZ Top’s “LaGrange”; P. Ann Everson-Price on the Animals’ “We Gotta Get Out of This Place”, and Eugene Goss on Stevie Wonder’s “Boogie On Reggae Woman”.
Scotty’s Chet Atkins/Merle Travis style roots are heard on the Beatles’ “All My Loving” and on “Going Down This Road Feeling Bad”; his unparalleled country soul is experienced on the ballads “Cold Cold Heart” and “16 Candles”. Scotty shows his country/swing chops on “Honey Fingers”, gets down with some front porch pickin’ on “Milk Cow Blues” and gets back to his bluegrass roots on the rousing “Ruby Are You Mad At Your Man”.

"… Scotty Anderson ranks among the most impressive pickers I've ever heard. His jaw-dropping double- and triple-stop technique is fused with startling quickness, while his deft phrasing and pure virtuosity keep the music soulful and beautifully listenable…. Scotty Anderson deserves to be heard as much as any guitarist playing today."
Michael Cochran - co-author Chet Atkins - Me and My Guitars; Les Paul - In His Own Words
“This recording (Classic Scotty) is an instant classic with powerful implications for the future, and promises to be the most mind-boggling and satisfying guitar release of the year. Make that, any year.”
Wolf Marshall - founder and original editor-in-chief of Guitar One magazine (www.wolfmarshall.com)
“Pick your superlative –blinding, dizzying, stupifying—Scotty Anderson has heard them all. The 47 year old Cincinnati native has become a bona fide country/jazz legend…”
Rusty Russell – Guitar Player, June 2001
“Like guitar greats Jimmy Bryant, Hank Garland, Joe Maphis, Lenny Breau, Roy Buchanan and Danny Gatton before him, six-string hotshot Scotty Anderson is a little bit country, a little bit jazz and a whole lot mind-boggling.”
Bill Milkowski -- JazzTimes, May 2001
“Anderson possesses a world-class guitar style constructed from listening hard to Jerry Reed, Chet Atkins, Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian, Tal Farlow and other heroes in the country and jazz camps…Anderson’s playing comes packed with delightful ideas.”
Frank-John Hadley – Downbeat, August 2001
