Jimmy Burns

Live At B.L.U.E.S.

Delmark DVD 1789 / CD DE 789

Born in Dublin, Mississippi in 1943, Jimmy Burns derived his earliest inspiration from the records of Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and others. After Jimmy moved to Chicago in the mid-'50s he discovered a scene that was perfect for the meld of traditional blues, churchy emotionalism, and forward-looking pop/R&B sophistication that by then comprised his musical aesthetic. Live at B.L.U.E.S. captures perfectly the indelible combination of ebullient good spirits, warm-hearted intimacy, and sharp-witted intelligence that characterizes Jimmy Burns, as both a musician and a man. DVD contains 12 songs, two bonus tracks and an audio interview/commentary special feature. Also available: Leaving Here Walking (Delmark 694), Night Time Again (730) and Back To The Delta (770).
