If you are a true Southern Blues fan, Jimmy Hall’s name will resonate with you. If you are a true Southern Blues fan, “Rendezvous With The Blues” is a must have in your collection as one of the most definitive records of the genre.
Jimmy Hall, former lead vocalist and harmonica player for Wet Willie, has a long and varied background as a performer, working with Capricorn Records from its early days in the 1970s.
Born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, Hall co-founded Wet Willie in 1970. Over the next ten years, Hall and the group toured with Aerosmith, the Allman Brothers Band, Grand Funk Railroad, and The Grateful Dead. Hall was later nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best Male Rock Vocalist” for Jeff Beck’s 1985 “Flash” album.
After Wet Willie’s break-up, Hall moved to Nashville to work on a solo project for Epic Records, and has remained there since. In Nashville, Hall found a healthy blues scene in a city best known for its country music. On his 1996 effort, “Rendezvous With The Blues”, Hall is back by artists such as Clayton Ivey on piano, former Capricorn session drummer, Bill Stewart, and Dr. Dan Matrazzo on Hammond B-3 organ. The album also features Johnny Sandlin, the same producer who sat behind the console on Wet Willie’s 1973 live album “Drippin’ Wet”.
In recent years, Hall joined Hank Williams Jr.’s touring band playing sax and harmonica. Hall also performs nationwide to audiences who truly appreciate Southern Blues.
