ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
He jammed on guitar and keyboard for the pioneering rock-funk-ska band Fishbone for eight years and has toured and recorded with artists as acclaimed and diverse as Miles Davis, Eminem, Dr. Dré, Nikka Costa, Bruce Hornsby and Everlast. His 2003 self-titled debut as a frontman earned raves in the New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, and Rolling Stone.

Now John “JB” Bigham, aka The Soul of John Black, turns his prodigous talents to The Good Girl Blues, a “funky blend of blues, soul, and rock” that merges rootsy, bluesy fundamentals with modern soul, funk, and hip-hop influences.

From “The Hole,” a wailing 21st century re-imagination of a 100-year-old field holler, to the old-school, uptown soul vibe of “I Got Work”, to “Slipin’ and Slidin,’” an instrumental with a mysterious backbeat highlighted by DJ Phizz Ed on turntables, Bigham’s sly, intimate vocals and unique guitar technique on acoustic, electric and slide provide the unforgettable groove.


“All hail one of the new faces of soul… his fusion of soul and blues sounds new, even as it harkens back to the classic feel of past styles.” —Mix

“Smooth soul, swamp blues and hip-hop beats meld, the resulting sound at once sublime and raw, modern and somehow ancient, haunting and transcendent. The album is destined to cause a stir and likely to end up on many critics' best-of-the-year lists.” —Tuscon Weekly

“A testament to the strength of African American music and the undeniable influence of the blues... Bigham’s anguished wail will grab your gut and turn it inside out.” —Esquire

“This is hot Gospel sex moan music... one of the best records I've heard in a LONG time.” —Tastes Like Chicken

JB's Music Speaks For Me
JB Bigham is an artist in the true sense of the word. He's out there writing and recording music without any regard to its commercial viability or whether it fits some marketing niche. Therefore, "The Good Girl Blues" is the pure essence of a man trying to express himself which makes it not only viable (a too-modest goal) but memorable. Somehow, both JB's albums make you think, feel, move, and get your old lady in the mood all at the same time. "The Good Girl Blues" is the latest stop on a musical journey to a place you didn't know you wanted to go to until you got there. Wherever JB Bigham wants to go next musically, I'll take the trip with him.

Great follow up!
This record is probably the perfect follow up to the eponymous debut LP of JB. It's pretty much stripped down to the essentials with as usual great vocals and a permanent blues underlayer. Wholeheartedly recommended !

The Soul of John Black
"Swamp Thang" is my most favorite cut by ANYBODY in a long time. Congratulations. I'm doing my best to spread the word among my hip friends.

Very Very Good....
Great jazzy, funky, bluesy, soulfully smooth sound. What a great follow up to his debut! I'm a DJ on the East Coast in Connecticut and have been playing tracks from the CD.

One Hit
I've heard One Hit a few times on XM and like it. Ordered the CD today. When I hear One Hit, I'm immediately reminded of Brewster & Shipley, One Toke Over the Line. Very similar melodies.
