  • Memphis guitarist Preston Shannon's debut as a bandleader, Break the Ice is a showcase not only for the singer/guitarist's considerable talents, but for his influences as well. Heavily influenced by the Kings, Albert and B.B., Shannon puts down a blazing version of the former's "Crosscut Saw," as well as covering two songs by Jimmy McCracklin (the songwriter who gave B.B. "The Thrill Is Gone"). Truly one of the strongest talents on the modern day Memphis blues scene, Shannon and his band do much to transcend their influences and add an original sound on the 12 songs collected here. ~ Steve Kurutz
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (11/94, p.66) - 4 Stars - Very Good - "...There's tons of soul in Shannon's raspy, Otis-inspired vocals and a decided B.B. King influence in his guitar playing..."
