Review Comments: John Mooney hammers his guitar with an unbridled ferocity in his 2005 Jazz Fest set. The level of virtuosity on display here is so high it should be illegal. Mooney trots out songs from his vast repertoire and even goes so far as to spin out a couple of timeless covers, "Baby, Please Don't Go" and one from his mentor, Son House, "Levee Camp Moan". "Glass House" may well be the finest performance of a single song in the entire festival though it is given a serious run for its money by the always stellar "Sacred Ground".
