In the finest of West Coast blues harmonica tradition, Andy Just has been thrilling audiences with his explosive performances not only as a member of Robben Ford Band but also with his own group. He is recognized for introducing jazz and rock in his large repertoire of songs, while staying true to his blues roots. With his band, The Shapes, his versatility is what makes his performances truly enjoyable.
Andy Just is widely known in the blues harmonica world as a true master of his craft, and for his signature tone - which many harmonica players have tried to duplicate without success. In 1981, he recorded his first solo album for Patrick Ford's Blue Rock'It label. Surprisingly enough, 'AJ & The Shapes' is only his third solo album containing the well-known, "Just-mix" of easy-going west coast blues-rock, and harmonica artistry. Fred James from Nashville is also on board. Without a doubt, Andy is the most powerful harp player to come along since James Cotton. Although he can emulate Sonny Boy Williamson one minute, and Charlie Parker the next.
