ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
American Football is great drama and entertainment for millions of fans in the USA and abroad. It is simple and complex with all its components. Sports writers and Sport Shows talk about it constantly during the season. Who is going to win? Why? How are they going to get it done? Most of them have never played the game and they haven't got a clue. Even ex-players don't know from Sunday to Sunday.

Sixx P's came about when an All-Pro strong safety for the Minnesota Vikings, now an ex-player, asked me to write something to get the fellas up for the game in 1993.
I tossed around some ideas and all the things that I thought were important and came up with a coach's game plan. My friend was cut from the team so I decided to shelf the song. After watching the Giants-Vikings championship game, score 41-0 I knew it was time to release the single.
Sixx P's is a slamming, funky, hip-hop football rap. It's a coach's game plan that leads a team whether Pee wee or pro, to success and winning the Super Bowl.


PhD, a.k.a. José James, was born in Ancon Canal Zone, Panama. In 1973, while studying music theory and classical flute at the Conservatory of Panama, he met Roger Mitchell, a singer/songwriter living in South America. They formed a duo with José playing percussion, sax, flute, and vocals. José and Roger left Panama for San José, Costa Rica, and after touring Central America for two years, they signed a recording contract with Dicesa. While living in Central America, José kept in touch with the music scene in the United States. In an effort to broaden his musical knowledge and experience, and after hearing the album "That's the Way of the World" by Earth Wind and Fire he decided to move to the USA in 1975.

While attending the University of Minnesota, he performed with the Jazz Ensemble and toured with Clark Terry, finishing with a performance at Carnegie Hall in New York City. During this time he also played with Eddie Daniels, Bob Brookmeyer and Art Pepper. In 1978 he joined Willie and the Bees, an R&B band in the Twin Cities led by Willie Murphy. They recorded one of the first digital albums for Sound 80 Records called "Out of the Woods" with José writing "Let Me Be Your Friend" and co-writing "Stone Broke" with Murphy.

After leaving the Bees in 1980, José formed a Jazz Fusion/Dance band called Top Secret. He appeared on shows like Night Stage, Almost Live! / KITN TV, KTWN Live! From Riverplace TV, and performed at Sweeney's until the group disbanded in 1986.
José worked with the Minneapolis-based reggae band Shangoya, writing horn arrangements, playing in the horn section and recording an album called Red Pants Jam. In 1987 he joined Ipso Facto, touring the country with them for the next two years. In 1989 Ipso entered the Yamaha Soundcheck Band competition, winning the Best Band award in the United States. This created the opportunity to represent the U.S. at Band Explosion in Tokyo, Japan, where they competed against 22 bands from 23 countries around the world. They took First Place in Tokyo, winning the Platinum Prize and subsequently signed a recording contract with Sony/Epic Records. Ipso Facto went on to record four CDs and toured with UB40, Tracy Chapman, Third World, Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, Shabba Ranks, The Kinks, The Clash, and Richard Marx.
In 1992 José formed another band under his own name opening shows for artists such as Jimmy Walker, Nipsey Russell, George Wallace, Larry Miller and performing with Paul Williams and Doc Severinsen.
In 1994 José was voted Best Brass/Reed Artist at the Minnesota Music Awards.
In early 1998, he joined Lorie Line & her Pop Chamber Orchestra playing World Percussion and has been touring the United States for the past four years.
José has just released his first CD of electro/acoustic percussion dance music called Jungle to Jungle, and also released a pro football rap single entitled Sixx P's on his label, JNJ Records.
