I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Ever Changin' Emotions - THE SOUL OF JOHN BLACK

The Soul of John Black is an American alternative soul,blues,rock duo formed by John Bigham and Christopher Thomas.
John Bigham was previously a member of the band Fishbone and also worked with Miles Davis and Everlast, while Christopher Thomas had played with Joshua Redman and Betty Carter. Their first release was a self-titled album which was issued in 2002. A different self-titled release arrived in 2003 on the No Mayo label and featured a blend of soul, funk, and hip hop. NPR named the track "Scandalous (No. 9)" one of the best of the year in All Songs Considered. By the release of the follow-up in 2007, Bigham was recording alone and essentially used the group as his own stage name. The sophomore release, The Good Girl Blues, focused on the blues but continued to incorporate elements from jazz, hip hop, rock & roll, and other styles. A third album, Black John, followed in 2009.

The Soul of John Black's "The Good Girl Blues" was nominated for the 7th Annual Independent Music Awards for Blues Album of the year.
