Jazz and Heritage Festival
A rendition of “Don’t Let the Devil Ride” started out a wailing blues number, with the powerful vocals of Cinnamon Jones giving way to a sharp solo duel between the two steel guitars that somehow managed not to cross the line into indulgence The music maintained its shape, with the dual steel attack lending a depth to the sound that’s usually filled in by the Hammond B-3 organ in a gospel setting. Jones sang through the song’s words, then went to the corner of the stage, and broke into frenzied dancing. The crowd wasn’t far behind. As the band launched into “Beyond the Four Walls,” Jones had the crowd at her command, ordering them to lift up their hands, wave them and jump for joy at her choosing.
