Jimmy Johnson
Chicago blues guitarist, who became known to the blues world when he joined Jimmy Dawkins' band in 1974. That same year, he toured Japan with Otis Rush. Says Living Blues co-editor Jim O'Neal, "one of the modern Chicago blues idiom's most impressive singers and guitarist, a progressive stylist who combines technical expertise with soaring, gospel-influenced vocals." A gospelly tenor voice and Magic Sam-influenced guitar style... Among my favorite of his recordings is the instrumental "Take Five" (BMI).
