Legendary guitar player, James Blood Ulmer, who was a noted disciple of avant-garde deity, Ornette Coleman, has been described as one US critic as the missing link between Jimi Hendrix and Wes Montgomery. On Sunday November 13th, 76-year-old Ulmer brings his own distinct band of envelope-pushing avant-funk to London when he’ll perform the whole of his cult album, ‘Are You Glad To Be In America?‘ – originally released by Rough Trade in 1980 – in a trio setting at the UK capital’s Rich Mix venue.
He’ll be supported by Black Top, where vibes man Orphy Robinson together with effects specialist, Pat Thomas, will be joined by violinist, Mandhira de Saram. It should be a night to remember. Tickets are £17.50.
