Jimmy Burns – Back To The Delta
Delmark DG 770 (2003)
“Chicago’s Jimmy Burns accompanies his soulful, countrified voice with unstoppable rhythms and sure-handed solos. His vibrant, heartfelt blues and boogies echo the Mississippi Delta, where he was born and raised.” —Guitar Player in a review of Leaving Here Walking (Delmark 694)
Back To The Delta reflects those same influences with 13 new original songs including “Juke, Juke, Juked”, “Stranded In Clarksdale”, and “Country Boy In The City.” The title track “Back To The Delta” is about Jimmy’s hometown just up the road from Tutwiler, where the blues was born.
