ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a young boy growing up in New Jersey J.Geils was exposed to jazz by his father who had a great collection of classic jazz albums. Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Good man with guitarist Charlie Christian and Louis Armstrong were just a few of the musical giants Jay was exposed to growing up. He played trumpet and drums in his high schools jazz and marching band and even attended jazz band camp. Upon going to college in Boston he traded the trumpet in for a guitar and never looked back. He became part of the then happening" Boston music scene" and formed the J.Geils Blues Band and backed famous blues musicians coming through Boston like Buddy Guy,Junior Wells, Muddy Waters and blues guitar icon Mike Bloomfield. When the band signed with Atlantic Records they dropped the" Blues Band" moniker and became what would become the greatest" live rock and roll" band in the world, the "J.Geils Band". The rest is part of Rock and Roll history. When the J.Geils Band broke up Jay was burned out on the music business and spent the next years restoring classic Italian sports cars. He didn't even own a guitar. His old band mate Magic Dick got Jay back into the music business when they formed the band Bluestime and made two well received Cd's for Rounder Records and played sold out shows around the country. in 1992 Jay met jazz guitarist Gerry Beaudoin and started coming to his gigs to sit in playing jazz. The two guitarists hit it off and enjoyed playing together and Jay's third career as a jazz guitarist began. Back in the woodshed Jay returned to his first musical love classic American jazz. Gerry and Jay have since their first gigs together produced six jazz Cd's together and one DVD and have toured the USA and Canada together. Toe Tapping Jazz is his latest and is a tribute to the music Jay grew up listening to. For this special CD Jay assembled a cast of the best musicians in Boston. Please enjoy it.
