2007 saw Jimi release ‘Blue Mandolin’, his first album of mandolin-based tunes. Jimi’s unique stlye of ‘blues mando’ made an instant impact on the local scene, with Jimi performing mandolin tunes in a number of guises: solo, trio, ensemble, even as a part of his electric blues shows! See the Video page for a clip of ‘Skinny White Boy’, a song considered by many to be Jimi’s signature tune, and visit YouTube for heaps of live bootleg videos by fans.
