CD Review: Mo' Mojo 

Finally

(sonicbids.com/momojo)

Mo' Mojo have been around for 15 years, but the appropriately titled Finally! is the zydeco jam band's first album. Turns out it was worth the wait. The up-tempo party album includes a couple of covers of songs made popular by zydeco legend Boozoo Chavis. They also run through Prince's "Kiss" and Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love," capping off the latter with a riff from the Meters' classic "Cissy Strut." The original songs don't quite reach the same heights, but they maintain Finally!'s festive mood. Singer Jen Maurer's supple voice rivals her ear for melody, fueling the group's infectious energy levels throughout. — Jeff Niesel

Mo' Mojo. 9:30 p.m. Friday, January 21. Brothers Lounge.

Tickets: $5; call 216-226-2767 or go to brotherslounge.com.
