Mulligan Stew February 14th 2015-Colin James Interview

COLIN JAMES – HEARTS ON FIRE

 

colin james-hearts on fireFor his 16th studio album, Hearts On Fire, Colin James wanted to try something different.

“Making this record with my good friend Colin Linden and such a fantastic veteran rhythm section was an amazing experience,” “I loved working with the team that Colin Linden assembled for me in Nashville,” says James. “George Receli is the longtime drummer from Bob Dylan’s road band and Willie Weeks, the legendary bass player, who’s playing with Donny Hathaway I loved and Reese Wynans, the B3 and piano man of countless sessions.”

 

Colin and I talk about his long time friendship with Colin Linden.  (James was 13. Linden 16)

Colin also talks about why he wanted this release to have more down tempo/heartfelt songs..exactly the kind of song he loves live on stage.

Also reveals the lp should have perhaps been released before the 25 Live release.

Many of the songs co-written with Tom Wilson from Blackie and the Rodeo Kings

Colin James is an inductee in the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame. He has won six Juno Awards including “Male Vocalist of the Year” and the “Best Producer” award for his efforts with The Little Big Band.  He is the recipient of 17 Maple Blues Awards having most recently been honored in 2013 with “Entertainer of the Year”.
