"His Trippy R&B Jams are equal to Marvin Gaye's and Curtis Mayfield's, but somehow more contemporary sounding - closer to D'Angelo meets DJ Shadow" - David Byrne, Talking Heads.
Shuggie Otiswas compared, at the age of 15, withJimi Hendrixand the great Kings of blues guitar (B.B. King, Albert King). Shuggie went on to make two expansive, genre-defying, deeply curious albums, 1971's "Freedom Flight" and 1974's "Inspiration Information". The records, essentially crafted as a one-man band, flooredSly Stone, gaveThe Brothers Johnsontheir most enduring hit ("Strawberry Letter 23") and predated the stylistic synthesistPrinceby half a decade.
Shuggie Otis, son of the rhythm and blues bandleaderJohnny Otis, was a guitar prodigy, cutting sessions withFrank ZappaandAl Kooperwhilst still a teenager. AGMP are proud to present the legendaryShuggie Otisin concert with his full USA band.
