One of the great pioneers of European blues harmonica. Born in Paris in 1950, this veteran artist succumbed to Dylan's early folk, to the Stones' shameless instinct of "Not Fade Away," to The Beatles' "Love Me Do," and later to the British blues origins of Ciryl Davis. and John Mayall. But nothing was the same in his life after listening to Sonny Terry, the blues had found him and the harmonica took over all his time. From there, Milteau has been step by step discovering where he had gotten himself, Big Bill Broonzy, Big Joe Williams, Jazz Gillum and Leadbelly. Then ultimately shaped his future as a harmonica player some harmonica blues heroes such as John Lee Curtis (Sonny Boy Williamson), Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Walter Horton, Junior Wells and James Cotton. Nothing could fail, and destiny wrote where JJ's path would go. His record debut was in 1973 with the release of "Special Instrumental" and to date almost thirty more albums have followed, in which he has surrounded himself not only with the best French musicians but also with American and African bluesmen, among them which highlights his two albums with Eric Bibb. Throughout his career, Miletau has understood that the indispensable complement to the harmonica language is the voice, granting singers a priority role in most of his recordings, Mighty Mo Rogers, Mighty Sam McClain, Gil-Scott Heron, Terry Calier or Demi Evans have put their vocal power into their recordings. In this latest album, Milteau addresses an exquisite selection of covers that will undoubtedly they have occupied an important part in his suitcase throughout his incredible career.
