Spring Jazz Series: James MontgomeryMay 20, 2016
When blues legend James Montgomery plays the harmonica, he "brings it on home." Whether he’s recording with Kid Rock, sitting in with Gregg Allman, or fronting his hot band of 30 years, he always plays with genuine authority.
While growing up in Detroit, he learned first-hand from the masters - James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells – at the legendary "Chessmate." Over the years, he's carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene. Montgomery has toured with many major artists, including Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, the Allman Brothers, and Steve Miller, and has jammed on stage with B.B.King, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Jr. Wells, and Peter Wolf among others, including an impromptu session with Mick Jagger at New York's "Trax".
This concert is part of New England Arts & Entertainment's Spring Jazz Series in the Poli Club. Seating is general admission.
