Jaybird Coleman CD discography Artist/Artist & The Birmingham Jug Band: Artist.
Artist wasn't one of the most distinctive early country-blues harmonica players, but he nevertheless made engaging, entertaining music. All of his recordings -- which only totalled 11 sides -- are collected on Document's 1927-1930. For fans of the genre, there are some cuts of interest here, but the music doesn't have enough weight to be of interest to anyone but country-blues fanatics. ~ Thom Owens
