James Cotton RIP

Just found out James Cotton has passed away. Man what a life though.
Growing up outside of Chitown got to hear a good bit of his music. Hell of a harmonica player.

Up there jammin' with Junior Wells, Carey Bell, and Little Walter.

Going to listen to at least some of 'Deep in the Blues', a trio album from 1996 with Joe Louis Walker on guitar and Charlie Haden (!) on bass, before I turn in tonight.

The local University of Toledo Student Union Dance hired the James Cotton Blues Band in winter of 68; so as a high schooler I got to see an excellent band from Chicago.
James had Luther tucker on guitar , Bob Anderson on bass , Alberto Gianquinto pounding the 88's ( and I mean pounding ) and maybe Lester Davenport or Francis Clay on drums ? . I'll have to check my JC Verve albums for the drummer .
