This Time Tomorrow - a blues album

Accomplished musician, composer and producer, Jessie Allen Cooper, pays homage to his roots in blues music with his new CD, This Time Tomorrow, a blues album. The harmonica, known as a traditional blues instrument, was the first instrument he learned to play, which makes it all the more fitting that Cooper solely plays the harmonica on this album.

Cooper's American roots date back seven generations. His ancestors were on the Mayflower, making him a "son of the revolution". He is also a descendant of one of America's most beloved founding fathers, the great inventor and statesman, Benjamin Franklin. In the mid 1800s, Jessie's family was among one of the first to settle Everett, Washington where he was born.

Growing up in Everett, Jessie remembers hanging around the train tracks with his friends. The album cover artwork harkens back to those days inspired by Jessie's memories of hopping the trains passing through Everett and playing his harmonica in empty boxcars and tunnels.

Jessie listened to all types of music, but when he heard John Mayall play his blues harmonica at a concert, that was a defining moment for him. Soon after, he began studying blues harmonica players like Sonny Boyd Williamson, Little Walter and Paul Butterfield. This Time Tomorrow pays tribute to these and other blues legends such as Big Bill Broonzy and T-Bone Walker whose songs "Done Got Wise", "Your Funeral and My Trial", "Just a Dream" and "Stormy Monday" are all featured on this album.

Cooper was working on his Let's Connect CD in 2007 when he received a call from Paula Samonte letting him know that she was in LA. "She told me that she and Ed Reinhart were playing downtown and we agreed to meet."

They met and decided to record a blues jam session that would feature Jessie on harp, Ed on piano and vocals and Paula on vocals. Steve Reid would play the cajón and bongos, run the board and record all at the same time. Jessie and his blues band recorded songs such as "Let the Good Time Roll" by Louis Jordan along with original music by Paula and Ed, "Too Hot Blues," and by Jessie and Ed, "Jessie's Blue" and title track, "This Time Tomorrow".

After 36 years of recording music, ironically This Time Tomorrow, is the first blues album by a blues-man at heart. Jessie considers the blues to be a major part of his music foundation and yet he has never dedicated an entire album to it - until now.

"I am very proud of being part of this American tradition. Blues music has brought people together from all over the world. My hope is that This Time Tomorrow brings smiles to faces, while grooving on the blues."
