|JAZZPAR Artists - Cornell Dupree|
| Cornell Dupree (US), b. 1942, performed with
Steen Vig and his Bluesicians - Ole "Fessor" Lindgreen (tb,
arr), Gene "Mighty Flea" Conners (tb, voc), Steen Vig (ts, ss),
Søren Kristiansen (p), Hugo Rasmussen (b), Thorkild Møller
(d) - at the JAZZPAR Event 1993.
Cornell Dupree fuses the glowing Texas R&B funk
and the New York City jazz. As an autodidactic the guitarist started his
career at 16 in his home town, but was soon called to New York to play
with King Curtis - and for a while shared the guitar spot with some other
newcomer called James Hendrix (!).
