Album Notes
Jim La Forte(58) has been a presence on the Kansas City music scene since 1961. He started out at age thirteen, singing at school dances and sock hops. By the time he was fifteen, he was working local night clubs. At 21 he hit the road, playing all over the U.S., as well as Canada and Mexico.

Jim has shared billing with jazz legend Kevin Mahogny, Bloodstone, Wayne Cochran and Albert King. He was also in one of the featured acts for the Grand Re-opening of Kansas City’s historic 18th and Vine District in 1999. Members of Jim’s bands have gone on to play with Bill Chase, Fleetwood Mac, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Al Stewart and Ray Manzarek of the Doors.
These days he again makes his home in K.C. Jim plays in several venues each week and several charties each year, including those for battered women and children and healthcare for the indigent. The Kansas City Blues Society’s BLUES NEWS describes him as KC’s “Powerful Blues Shouter.”


Along with Jim, you will hear 26 of Kansas City’s finest musicians and singers. All are old friends. Some are Kansas City Legends. All are cream of the crop. Co-Producers are Jim and keyboardist and actor(Mr. and Mrs. Bridge, Truman) Allen Monroe.

Kansas City Blues News

Mr Blues Great energy and delivery
With the exception of KC Cats the songs are all covers. But they are not covers that have been done to death. House of the Rising Sun opens with the haunting sound of Mo Pauls harp, then takes off in a faster, funkier fashion then the slow, dirgelike way that most artists perfor this song. This is a solid blues album. Theres not a dud in the bunch.
