“ELECTRIC LOVE Jack De Keyzer has long been recognized as one of our most skilled and versatile bluesmen. He won a JUNO Award for his last album, The Corktown Sessions, and returns in top form on Electric Love. On this collection of new originals, he successfully evokes the classic blues-rock sound pioneered by the likes of Hendrix, Page and Clapton.
