Also known as ‘Fingers’ or ‘The Groovemaster’, Jerry Jemmott has played bass for some of the greatest blues, soul and jazz artists of all time. Folk of the caliber of Freddie King, Nina Simone, Wilson Pickett, Herbie Hancock and George Benson, to name but a handful.
You can also hear Jerry adding his trademark groove to BB King’s legendary take on The Thrill Is Gone, featured on his 1969 album Completely Well. Incidentally, Jemmott co-wrote the album’s opening track, So Excited, with King. While his CV is clearly bulging with barely contained greatness, some of Jerry’s finest grooves are to be found on the recordings he made with The Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Prepare yourself for an epic performance...
