Remembering The Life Of James Cotton, The Pioneering Blues Harmonica Player

first_imgJames Cotton, the prolific Grammy Award-winning blues harmonica player, died yesterday of pneumonia at the age of 81. Affectionately nicknamed “Mr. Superharp,” Cotton was a pioneering force for the blues, with his career starting as a teenager in the early 1950s with the release of his first single, “Straighten Up Baby.” Over the next six decades, Cotton’s fame grew, playing and recording with the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Steve Miller, Led Zeppelin, B.B. King, as well as taking on the role of Muddy Waters’ sideman for a time.Cotton was a decorated and celebrated musician who was close to the pulse of the ever-evolving blues scene throughout his life. In addition to the Grammies he won for Hard Again in 1977 and Deep In The Blues in 1997 and the nomination for 2013’s Cotton Mouth Man, the harmonica virtuoso also received ten Blues Music Awards, six Living Blues Awards, and the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal’s prestigious B.B.
