Note Music recording artist

The classic recordings made by Blue Note and Chess in the 50’s & 60’s inspire this album. Recorded over three days ‘live’ in the studio, it pays tribute to the spirit of those pioneers.

Roger Cotton has been playing Blues and Soul all his life and has the scars to prove it! He has toured the world with “Peter Green’s Splinter Group” and worked with James Carr, Larry Garner and Eric Bibb.

Alan Glen is acknowledged as one of the UK’s finest harmonica players. He, like Roger, has toured the world as a member of “The Yardbirds”. He has also recorded with “Nine Below Zero”, “Little Axe”, and his own band “The Barcodes”.

This project is a chance for them to display their considerable talents as performers of their own original material. - BJP
