Tigertail presents jazz and blues legend James Blood Ulmer, with an electrifying trio that includes himself, violinist Charles Burnham and drummer Warren Benbow. Ulmer, who earlier in his career played with pioneering jazz-great Ornette Coleman, is an iconoclastic genius who mixes it up with the raw power of the blues, R & B and funk to create an indelible and unique sound. Described by Village Voice music critic Greg Tate as “…the missing link between Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery on one hand, between P-Funk and Mississippi Fred McDowell on the other,” Ulmer’s guitar style has been fed by a wide variety of influences, including the great Wes Montgomery.
