As surprising and wonderful as it was to have them back a few years ago, this local institution (as New Yawk as the subway) is still among us now and still welcome. Now with another album out as proof that they intend to stay around longer this time (hopefully), they're showing off their more bluesy, laid-back side, which definitely ain't bad. And just so you don't worry that they're getting TOO mellow, they're happy to dig through their raucous back catalog for their shows. With Black Joe Lewis and the Madison Square Gardeners.
