Biography

Jim Mullen (born November 26, 1945) is a Glasgow-born jazz guitarist with a distinctive style, like Wes Montgomery before him, picking with the thumb rather than a plectrum.

Having played with Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express, appearing on the band’s first three albums together with future Average White Band drummer Robbie MacIntosh, Mullen then joined Kokomo and later toured with the Average White Band.

It was while both musicians were touring the U.S. with AWB in the mid-70s that Mullen met up with tenor saxophone player Dick Morrissey, and throughout the 1980s, he found considerable critical, if not commercial, acclaim as joint leader of the pioneering British jazz funk band Morrissey - Mullen.

Mullen has also played and recorded with, among others, Pete Brown & Piblokto!, Mose Allison, Hamish Stuart (ex-Average White Band), Tam White, Claire Martin, Mike Carr, Jimmy Witherspoon and Georgie Fame.

He has won many British music awards including “Best Guitar” in the British Telecom Jazz Awards (1994, 1996 and 2000).

Most recently, Jim Mullen has recorded as part of The AllStars a collective of session musicians on their Paul McCartney-produced album All About the Music, alongside special guests Jocelyn Brown, Hamish Stuart and Angelo Starr.
