Album Info

"Big James" got his first taste of the blues when as a young teenager he would stand outside of a club on the southside of Chicago and listen to B.B. "Big Voice" Odum sing with Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues. Eventually, he was allowed to sit in with the band and as the old saying goes, "The rest is history."
At nineteen years old he joined the legendary "Little Milton Band". After playing with Milton for two years, he joined Albert King's Blues Band. After playing with Albert, he returned to the local scene in Chicago and began to play with many blues bands in the area too numerous to mention. But, it was his association with the late Johnny Christian that really changed things for him. "Big James" says, "Little Milton gave me my start, but Johnny really turned me loose. He was such a great singer and a major influence on me that I will always be grateful to him.
In 1996,"Big James" joined the Buddy Guy's Blues Band. He performed all over the world with the master bluesman, with the highlight being the "House of Blues Barnburner Tour" and a performance on the "Tonight Show" featuring Jay Leno. Also in 1996, Big James rocked the main stage of the Chicago Blues Festival.
Big James has also been active in the recording studio having recorded several albums with Johnny Christian, Lee "Shot" Williams, John Primer, L.V. Banks, Vance Kelly and on Chico Banks first solo project entitled "Candy Lickin' Man", on Evidence records. "Big James" is featured on lead vocals and trombone on a sizzling arrangement of Magic Sam's "All of Your Love."
This is Big James' third recording on the independent blues label Jamot Music. The first entitled "Funkin' Blues" received rave reviews from musicians, critics and the general public from all around the globe. The second release entitled "If It Wasn't 4 Da Blues" has proven to follow suit! This third installment should be the one to take this young blues man into the new millenium. "If you don't know now you know!"
