The Soul of John Black

[FUNKY BLUES] John Bigham has been around the block. The guitarist and singer worked with Miles Davis toward the end of the jazz giant’s life, then did a stint in genre-destroying cult faves Fishbone before transitioning into a career as an ace session player. In the last decade, though, Bigham has focused his talent on the Soul of John Black, a group reflective of the many genres the Chicago-born musician has absorbed and mastered over the years. In most cases, when a career sideman tries to prove himself as a songwriter, the result is a tangled mess of ideas, but over the course of the four albums Bigham has released under the John Black name, he has wisely kept it simple, displaying his dexterity in soul, blues, rock and funk without being too showy about it. It’s uncomplicated but deeply effective.
