|James Hunter cont.
From the 90's onwards James has led his own bands of varying formats, labelled James Hunter And His Band (featuring at least two saxes), The James Hunter Trio - or earlier (my favourite name) James Hunter & The Jokers.
"Very much an artist of today, a British singer / guitarist (previously known as Howlin' Wilf!), Hunter has produced an R&B album on Ace Records called "Believe What I Say". A CD of consummate professionalism, he is one of a rare breed, a British artist who truly understands the R&B form. Lots of self penned material with a few standards thrown in, guest appearances from Van Morrison and Doris Troy (another unsung heroine??) and great arrangements - some might argue it veers towards pastiche but I just say, if that's true, give me more pastiche. If you're a fan of Bobby Bland, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles etc. give this excellent vocalist / guitarist a listen - prevent another unsung hero biting the dust!"
