Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think)

by Jim Kweskin

Jim Kweskin is probably best known as a singer and bandleader, but he also created one of the bedrock guitar styles of the folk revival, adapting the ragtime-blues fingerpicking of artists like Blind Boy Fuller to the more complex chords of pop and jazz.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On National Public Radio’s Fresh Air, rock historian Ed Ward listed, among the most important bands of the early 60’s, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Byrds, “and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band.” Ward added: “I’m not kidding.”

Listening to the music here, you’ll understand why he wasn’t kidding. Jim Kweskin continues to perform his vast repertoire of folk, blues, swing, jug band and early standards with his own brand of infectious personal interpretations. His guitar finger picking of songs like Some of These Days and Exactly Like You is recognized by his peers and fans as some of the best there is. His selection of songs is vividly evocative of his many diverse influences such as Louis Jordan, Clancy Hayes, Fats Wallter, Milton Brown, Duke Ellington, Bing Crosby and Pete Seeger.

Backed by the Jim Kweskin Band, a group of extraordinary musicians, this album features four tracks taken from Jim’s Now And Again album and three tracks from Samoa Wilson’s Live The Life album.

We feel confident that when you listen to this wonderful collection of songs you will certainly “enjoy yourself.”
