TEXAS JAKE has been performing on the""underground""blues circuit both solo[on resonator guitar]and with electric-slide guitar[Les Paul]with his band the""Houserockers""for many years.His burning passion for blues started at an early age.At 13 years old he was already on the road traveling with his thumb and his guitar through the Mississippi Delta,Texas,Oklahoma,Alabama,Louisanna,Arkansas,Missouri,and as far away as California.Picking up gigs and makeing a lot of friends.He moved to Northern California during the 60's ,and was part of the San Francisco music scene,working for Al King Productions[Sly Stone's agent]and Bill Graham at the Filmore West.Through the years there have been a lot of bass-players,drummers,keyboardist,horn-players etc.but the central theme has always been the same.....play from your heart and make the music the best it can be!I have personally known and jammed with many greats over the years includeing........Freddy King,Rossand Roland Kirk,Janis Joplin,Peter Greene,Taj Mahal,Jerry Garcia,Dusty Hill,Country Joe McDonnald,Sam Hopkins,Bukka White,Johnny Winter,Berry Melton,Boz Scaggs,Steve Miller,Tracy Nelson,Powell St.John,Elvin Bishop,Mike Bloomfield,and many,many more.Jake made 2 L.P.'s[now out of print collector items]the first being named ""Im Blue""on the now defunct American music label.The secand was a limited pressing called ""Texas Jake and White Lightning""on the Mercury label.He also worked for Mercury Records[S.F.] as a studio musician.This is his first C-D ,featureing all original songs.Jake is eager to play his slide-guitar blues for you,and hopes you will enjoy it and become one of his friends!8/2004 Arthur Dill Producer.
