Title: Professional Slacker
Artist: The Jimmy Griswold Band
Label: Grizzo Records, 2005
Reviewed by: Tim Richards - June, 2005

This Connecticut native who now calls Tampa his home is one of those artists begging to burst onto the blues scene. Backed by the rock solid band that consists of Tim Heding (keyboards), Bryan Austin (drums) and bassist extraordinaire Robert "Freighttrain" Parker, Griswold adds Ronnie Dee on sax and Scott Myers on trombone. The opening track, Wrapped Up in His Ego is a funky, syncopated song lamenting the dreaded "Fat Head" syndrome suffered by some of today's artists. Dirt Nap is an uptempo borderline rocker. Never one to stay in the same vein for long, the following track is a laid-back little ditty filled with Griswold's wry sense of humor. While not well known outside of Florida, hopefully this CD will help change that.

The Jimmy Griswold Band
Superb musicianship and impressive vocals. Songs are very entertaining and intelligently performed. Recording quality is very well done and strong.
