Jumpin' Jimmy Taylor or James the "Boogie Man" Taylor played slammin' piano with Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs from 1965-66 and also for Ray Hoff and The Off Beats. He went on to have a distinguished career as a backup musician and even played with rock and roll greats Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry. Jimmy kept playing well into his 60's but sadly passed away over 2 years ago.
Unfortunately Jimmy's fan club site was taken down and there is little information available about him. A follower of this blog, who was fortunate enough to know Jimmy personally and had also worked up a song with him, has asked if anyone out there may have any information they can share or point out where we can find some. Anything would be appreciated. Just leave a message below this post or send through the CONTACT page on this blog.
