Jumpin' From Six To Six !




Born in 1923, JimmyWilson recorded for Bob Geddins’ Big Town label, with, among others, Que Martyn on tenor sax, King Solomon on piano and Lafayette « Thing » Thomas on guitar.
Bob Geddins stated that in Dallas he made his last recordings with Jimmy Wilson – Thereafter Clarence Garlow rediscovered Jimmy Wilson and brought him to Eddie Shuler’s Goldband.
Besides the Goldband recordings, Wilson made some recordings for Duke, another Texas label.
But soon after this, he died in Dallas in 1965, killed by the booze.
