Vasti Jackson - Taurus effects to the Blues!

Guitarist, songwriter and producer Vasti Jackson may well be the busiest musician in Mississippi. In the last several years, the Hattiesburg resident has appeared in several feature films, a documentary and a TV show, co-produced a Grammy-nominated album, and worked as a session man and road musician for numerous artists. Jackson also performs with his own band and as a solo acoustic act, and recently stepped up front with a new CD, "No Border to the Blues", that might be seen as a distillation of all the work he's accomplished to date. "I love collaborating, but this CD is me putting the music out there from my own personal inspiration", Jackson explains. "There's music that's more traditional blues, acoustic, electrified and more rocking, but at the core of it is a compelling Mississippi attitude."
"Vasti Jackson is the real deal! He plays the blues, he sings the blues, he writes the blues, he produces the blues, and yes, he feels the blues. When you understand the blues, the blues like Vasti has had since his Mississippi childhood, you know that there are no boundaries to the music. It permeates every experience in life. Vasti has proven it with his expansive look at the future of the blues." - Art Tipaldi (Blues Revue Magazine)

Felton Crews - "That's what I need for my Bass!"

Felton Crews is using Taurus effects!

In 1980 he was picked up by legendary Miles Davis. Miles called on Felton to do his Man with the Horn album. This affiliation continued for several years. During this time Felton composed songs for several different projects with Miles. In 1986, Felton toured worldwide with Miles on the Warner Brothers Tutu tour. This tour led him to share the stage with such greats as George Duke, David Sanborn, Mike Stern, Robben Ford, and Carlos Santana. Felton appeared with Miles on many TV shows such as Dick Cavett, Crime Story, Amnesty International, and also various European and South American programs.
At the same time that Felton was working with Miles he was also working with other well known artists. He recorded with Ramsey Lewis, Randy Hall, Robert Irving, and the Dells. He was also performing with Otis Clay, Otis Rush, Sun Seals, Junior Wells, Billy Branch and a host of others.
