James Blood Ulmer

James Blood Ulmer

Even in an art form that requires all of its practitioners to attain an individual voice, guitarist James “Blood” Ulmer stands out as a revolutionary figure. He possesses a gutsy, soulful, and ferociously gritty sound redolent of the pungent red clay of his childhood in South Carolina. Like many other guitarists, the 70-year-old Ulmer got his start in organ combos, recording his first sessions with Hank Marr and Big John…


James Buckley Trio

In this vibrant local jazz community, there are a lot of bands who are focusing on pushing the boundaries of the genre, presenting exclusively original music and incorporating electronic elements into the jazz vernacular. One could probably say bassist James Buckley has played in about half of these groups at one point or another, and the same could be said of other trio members Bryan Nichols (keyboards) and Chris Hepola…

Fiery saxophonist James Carter leads drummer Leonard King and organist Gerard Gibbs in what the Boston Globe calls “a killer soul jazz outfit.” Although Carter is the front man of the trio of Detroit natives, all three talented musicians shine in the spunky, up-beat grooves that the band seems to effortlessly produce. Ever since he arrived in New York City from his native Detroit at age 21, James Carter’s awesome…

Hunter is coming to town.“ -Chris Isaak James Hunter was born October 2,…
