CORNELL DUPREE picture
A veteran of over 2,500 recording sessions, guitarist Cornell Dupree worked most prolifically in R&B and blues, but he was equally at home in jazz, particularly funky fusion and soul-jazz. Dupree was born in Fort Worth, TX, in 1942, and by the age of 20 was playing in King Curtis' R&B group. He became a session musician soon after, playing on Brook Benton's "Rainy Night in Georgia," as well as records by stars like Lou Rawls, Paul Simon, Barbra Streisand, Harry Belafonte, Lena Horne, Roberta Flack, Joe Cocker, Michael Bolton, Mariah Carey, and countless others. Dupree was also a member of Aretha Franklin's touring band from 1967-1976, and during that time also became a presence on many jazz-funk recordings, the sort that would find favor with rare groove and acid jazz fans in the years to come. Dupree's first jazz session as a leader was 1974's Teasin', which was followed read more...

Call it Blues, Jazz, or RandB, this terrific album could be the crown jewel in Cornell Dupree's solo career. Bluesy and funky, this treat seems to hit it's mark square in the bullseye - parts King Curtis, parts Booker T, parts Kenny Burrell, parts Albert Collins - Cornell Dupree is a polished vet who unearthed the rarest gem in the twilight of an outstanding career - a career spanning effort boiled down to eleven songs. I hope fans don't have to wait 13 years for another album, because Dupree could have a renaissance like Booker T, Andre Williams, Loretta Lynn, and Dr. John. I don't know who anybody in the band is but they simmer when they should simmer and boil when they should boil. Props to Dialtone records for ringing this one
