Music Around Town

The Nick Moss Band/David Loy and the Ramrods

When: Sat., Aug. 1, 8:30 p.m. 2015

With a robust career always broadening, Nick Moss keeps on trucking. His latest album, Time Ain’t Free, kicks around the high-octane Chicago blues that’s baked into his music for years. Among the notable highlights in his work are the screaming guitar solos he churns into his songs. Album opener “She Wants It” merges the tail end of one of those solos with a gospel-style verse and a bridge back into the song’s heavy chorus. Masterful licks abound, and it’s clear that Moss is a terrific songwriter. The latest album closes out with “(Big Mike’s) Sweet Potato Pie,” a funk-laden stew complete with psychedelic leads from both the keys and the guitar. It’s an incredible finale. (Sandy)
