Fire and passion are the best words to describe the guitar virtuosity of James Mann, add to that extensive playing experience and you have a powerful combination perfectly suited in bringing you the music of one of the greatest guitar players in the world... “Stevie Ray Vaughan”.
Jimi recalls... “The first time I heard Stevie Ray, I said... Hey, I sound like that guy”. We have such similar playing styles and musical personalities that Stevie’s music feels like my own, and I love playing it. It’s so natural for me. I hope I can help, in some small way, in keeping Stevie’s music and spirit alive. He was just awsome and everything he did was real and straight from the soul.
