“There are cool cats and there are cool Memphis cats but no one, not
Elvis, not Jerry Lee, not even the Wolf came close to epitomizing Memphis
and cool like Jim Dickinson did. He was the Top Cat Daddy, an
inspiration, a mentor and my friend.

If you knew his music and understood his role as one of the links between
black and white culture and between blues and rock and roll, you know what
I'm talking about. If he is unfamiliar to you, now's as good time as any
to get to know him, even though he's checked out of the motel.”

NMA's website's news of Luther's Grammy Nomination

We are proud to announce that Luther Dickinson received
a Grammy nomination last night in the 'Best Folk Album' 
category for his solo instrumental album Hambone's

Released last May through NMA's label Songs of the South
Records, Hambone's Meditations was born out of Luther's
passion for the acoustic folk and blues music of the 
American South that surrounded him growing up. Drawing
inspiration from acoustic heroes John Fahey and, more 
recently, Jack Rose, Hambone's Meditation features five 
original compositions and a reworking of a gospel medley. 
The result
is 6 powerful tracks from the heart and soul of Luther
