Spend part of an evening with the Stones' rhythm section, Mick Jagger, freak-boogie pianist Nicky "Edward" Hopkins and Americana slide guitarist Ry Cooder. No matter what, this is the real Rolling Stones "loose" album. The five improvised themes are attributed to Hopkins, Cooder and Charlie Watts just because they are paying the most attention. The jam also conjures up "It Hurts Me Too" (Elmore James). I would not call any of Jammin' With Edward inspired, but it is comfortable and intimate. An extemporaneous footnote to the Let It Bleed sessions. ~ Tom Schulte
