Jesse Anderson was born in Paris, AR and as a child moved to Muskogee, OK. At the age of 19, he joined with hometown Muskogee musicians and traveled to Chicago in 1960 to make their first vinyl for Federal Records. After releasing several records, the group disbanded and Jesse returned to Chicago working his way thru the windy city with such artists as Earl Hooker, Pinetop Perkins, Otis Rush, Jimmy Johnson and Syl Johnson to name a few. He became a recording artist under the production of "Daddy" Gene Barge, writing several hits together and recording for Chess Records, Thomas Records and Outta Sight Records.

He co-wrote 'Somebody Loan Me a Dime' which was recorded by Boz Scaggs and The Blues Brothers. Buddy Guy covered his 'I Got a Problem" and Tyrone Davis did "Let Me Back In'. Jesse is an accomplished funky saxophonist and was frontman on several recordings. He also plays guitar (filing in for Earl Hooker on several occasions).

When rap music came into the scene, it affected many blues artists in the 70's. Radio stations wanted to get with the new sound, deserting the blues and funk. During this time, Jesse took a sabbatical. He is now 69 years old, in good health, and has released a compilation of some of his songs - an album titled Funk n Blues.

He would like for the younger generation to hear the old funky blues sound - and may even record some new funkity funk soon. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
