Even if you're not able to make it out to see John-Alex Mason and B.B. King at the Pikes Peak Center tonight, you definitely owe it to yourself to listen to the local blues hero's forthcoming Jook Joint Thunderclap album.
The official release date isn't until Feb. 15, but because we love you, just scroll down to stream the whole album right here.
Mason's songs, vocals and gut-bucket guitar playing are every bit as great as we've all come to expect, and the additional firepower of guest musicians like Cedric and Cody Burnside makes it that much better.
