A musical project that was very close to the heart of Jon Lord.
High-quality British blues at its finest.
In 2010, Pete York (Spencer Davis Group, Hardin & York) asked Jon to
join a concert that was named the Rhythm & Blues Allstars. As a result
of having incredibly good time together, the band decided to form the
Jon Lord Blues Project. Six successful musicians, old friends who have
known each other since the 60s and 70s and whose musical past reads
like the "Who's Who" of blues and rock music history: Deep Purple,
Spencer Davis Group, Chris Rea, Whitesnake and many more. Recorded
at the Rottweil Jazz Festival in 2011, Jon Lord, Miller Anderson, Maggie
Bell, Colin Hodgkinson, Zoot Money and Pete York presented classic
blues songs as well as contemporary compositions, such as by Deep
Purple and Tom Waits.
