    Any fans here?

    I absolutely love his work with the DLO3, as much as with The True Loves:





    But I've recently discovered his version of Foxy Lady which, IMHO, is one of the most convincing I've heard so far:



    He always has such an impeccable and yet soulful timing.

    I’ve seen him with The Organ Trio and he was real good.
    This really makes me see a guy who deserves to be national.

    Love this guy. Been following him for a while. Great feel in all the groups he's with.

    He plays with the DLO3 in Paris next April (it has already been canceled and rescheduled several times upon governmental decision).
    It’s not cheap, so I’m hesitating a lot to buy tickets and risking it’s canceled or postponed again.

    I honestly find his playing inspirational.

    Here's guy playing soulfully and beautifully, and yet at any given time there's always a big thread about Joe Bonamassa and how may tweed amps he owns.

    Watched everything he's been on at KEXP. Love his playing, both as sideman and leader.

    Anyone know his real name? Surely it's not Jimmy James. Seems a little too much of a coincidence being in Seattle and the Hendrix connection to that name.

    Or maybe his birth name has inspired him to pick up a guitar? (in an interview I remember he says he started playing around 12 yo).

    The KEXP shows got me into him (and the bands). He's fantastic.

    Apparently his real name is Jabrille Williams.
