James Blood Ulmer: No Escape From The Blues

For decades, James Blood Ulmer has been known for intense, distinctive guitar playing and singing on the cutting edge of jazz and funk. That changed when Vernon Reid convinced him to make a blues CD, which was nominated for a Grammy last year. His second blues CD is even better: more personal, evocative and filled with Ulmer’s quiet, earthy soulfulness.
