Artist Biography by

Guitarist Big Gilson and pianist Alan Ghreen are acoustic bluesmen from Brazil, members of the Brazilian band Big Allanbik who also record on their own. A trip to America to research blues figures (from Professor Longhair to Lightnin' Hopkins to Jerry Lee Lewis) caused them to go back to Rio de Janeiro with a renewed sense of purpose and record a blues album in a more relaxed setting. The results, Yellow Mojo Blues, appeared on TopCat in 1998.
