The Many Guitars Of Jimmy Wilkerson

I Know The Place
The Many Guitars Of Jimmy Wilkerson
Spur Records SP-3002

From the back cover: This album represents Jimmy's first offering as a solo artist and we think that you will be pleased with the results.

Jimmy is a native of Evansville, Indiana and during his childhood, lived in the same house with one of the finest saxophone players in the country today – Boots Randolph. Jimmy said, that many times when he was practicing the guitar downstairs, as a young man in his teens, he could hear Boots laying down a mean horn in the apartment above. With these two fine musicians, it must have been the "swingingest" house in town. As their individual careers progressed, both went their separate ways, musically, for a few years, and when Boots returned to his native city to entertain in a small supper club, Jimmy soon joined him. Since that time Jimmy has been a permanent member of Boots Randolph's musical group and appears with Boots on all of his national television appearances and concerts.
