Mr. Lucky refines the strategy of The Healer, from 1989, which paired Hooker with a variety of rootsy rockers who had been touched by his rhythmic mojo. While there’s nothing here quite as stunning as Hooker’s saucy, Grammy-winning duet with Bonnie Raitt on “I’m in the Mood,” Mr. Lucky is all around a sharper fit. The players on this outing aren’t rock stars paying tribute to a legend, but superb sidemen for a great bluesman.
Slight crack on case, sealed.
