Artist Biography by

This artist began recording on the Texas blues scene back in the '50s. Credited as both Jimmy Ford and James Ford, he plays both trumpet and trombone and was a session regular for independent labels, including Trumpet. He should not be confused with the Jimmy Ford from Chicago who played trumpet and led a show band in the '60s and '70s.
