Hubert Sumlin was one of thirteen children born on a farm near Greenwood, Mississippi on November 16, 1931. He learned to play drums and guitar as a small child and was playing at parties and local jukes by the time he was twelve years old. Sumlin's warped style of blues, which has been called "wicked" and "bent", went on to influence everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Frank Zappa. The raw tone in his guitar bites deep when he plays the jump style, ice-cold blues from Chicago. Whether he's playing one of his old guitars or a brand new model, Sumlin runs it through his old Fender amp and really makes it talk. Hubert Sumlin's return to the recording studio is very special because it includes a reunion with his old friend James Cotton. Heart & Soul is a tribute to the many influences and inspirations that make Hubert Sumlin one of the premier blues artists of his time.
