2001 Grammy Nominee Brian Auger began his career playing jazz in London in the early '60's just as the rock explosion began. He soon found himself in the middle of the British Invasion whirlwind, play with Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, John McGlaughlin, Rod Stewart, Long John Baldry, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Julie Driscoll. As a true pioneer of early Jazz-Fusion, Brian founded the Oblivion Express which is still creating innovations where jazz, blues, rock, and rhythm meet. He was nominated for a Grammy award in 2001 for his work with Bunny Brunel, Dennis Chambers, and Tony McAlpine.
