Jim Dickinson's Legacy Thrives....
From The Memphis Flyer (10.4.12):
North Mississippi Allstars
More than a decade into their run, the North Mississippi Allstars —
brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson, with bassist Chris Chew —
are better and more popular than ever. The trio's most recent album,
Keys to the Kingdom — a tribute to the brothers' late father,
Jim Dickinson — saw the band's command of a sound that
encompasses hill-country boogie, gutbucket blues, New Orleans
soul, and Delta gospel at an all-time high. Touring demands make
their local gigs rare these days, but that also makes them more
special when they come around."
Enjoy Keys to the Kingdom,
Thus does Jim Dickison's legacy continue to thrive. Not only has
NMA been chosen Memphis' best band for the third year in a row,
but Jim's own 2006 live record "I'm Just Dead, I'm Not Gone," is
in the TOP TEN on SiriusXM radio.
"World boogie is coming!"
