Colin James and the Little Big Band II: Colin James and the Little Big Band II

The second jump-blues album of Canadian guitarist Colin James and his nine-piece “little big band” roar through 14 songs, many originally recorded by legends of the past. Four horns and organ propel Ray Charles’ “Mary Anne”, Willie Dixon’s “You Know My Love,” Cab Calloway’s “C’mon With the C’mon”, Jimmy Wilson’s “Jumpin’ From Six to Six” and Memphis Slim’s “I’m Lost Without You”. Two originals continue the big, bold, swinging mode.
