"I'm A Jockey"
guitarist Jimmy Johnson didn't release his first full domestic
album until he was 50 years old. He's determinedly made up
for lost time ever since, establishing himself as one of the
Windy City's premier blues artists with a twisting, unpredictable
guitar style and a soaring, soul-dripping vocal delivery that
stand out from the pack."
Efter svår bilolycka 1988 kom så småningom
albumet "Im A Jockey": “It shouldn't have
taken Johnson a full decade to find his way back into a studio,
but such are the injustices of the record business. The wait
was worth it, though -- backed by his touring trio of the
timeframe, Johnson mixes blues and soul, originals (a heartfelt
"Black & White Wall" and the soaring ballad
"My Ring") and covers (his takes on McKinley Mitchell's
"End of a Rainbow" and Wilson Pickett's "Engine
Number 9" hit home), in decidedly solid contemporary
Andersen: "The Dreamer"
everybody, I'm Chris "Kid" Andersen, known for playing
lead guitar in Charlie Musselwhite's band and for other blues
luminaries and I also have my own, charmingly obscure solocarreer."
"As of May 2008, I am now officially the guitar player
with Rick Estrin and the NIghtcats, filling the shoes of the
legendary Little Charlie Baty. Good thing I'm a size 14."
"I'm done with the new record "The Dreamer",
out in Norway on Blue Mood/Grappa December 3rd, followed by
a Norwegian Tour. It turned out to be everything i promised
and more, with guest spots by Charlie Musselwhite, Rick Estrin,
Terry Hanck and others. It is guaranteed to blow your mind!!!!"
