Jeff Healey, arguably one of the most distinctive guitar players of our time, is releasing his first blues/rock album in eight years a bustling, bright collection of tunes he's titled MESS OF BLUES. The album was recorded late last year, with the musicians who regularly accompany the guitarist at Jeff Healey's Roadhouse in Toronto - two tracks, in fact, were recorded at the club, and two more cut at a concert in London, England. This was the last studio album to be recorded by Jeff Healy before his untimely death after an ongoing battle with cancer.

The Jeff Healey Band was formed as a "house band" to accompany guests who sit in when Healey plays at the club that carries his name, and to meet the ongoing international demand for the artist's powerful and unusual guitar work. The guitarist called his group "the best damned bar band in Canada."
