Johnny Copeland's eclectic nature is on display on Jungle Swing, an ambitious collaboration with jazz pianist Randy Weston. Weston brings a selection of African rhythms and melodic textures to the table, which are incorporated subtly into the rhythmic underpinnings of each song. In no sense is Jungle Swing a worldbeat experiment - it's just a small, affectionate tribute. Even so, the African flourishes don't dominate the sound of the record. Like always, Copeland takes center stage with his clean, precise licks.

John Clyde Copeland (March 27, 1937 – July 3, 1997) was an American Texas blues guitarist and singer. In 1983 he was named Blues Entertainer of the Year by the Blues Foundation. He is the father of blues singer Shemekia Copeland. In 2017, Copeland was posthumously inducted in to the Blues Hall of Fame. Copeland was born in Haynesville, Louisiana.

Exclusive Prime pricing. Amazing album! If you know anything about the blues you will truly enjoy this album. Johnny brought Stevie Ray up through the ranks and taught him the ropes, Stevie later returning the favor and playing on Johnny's "Texas Twister" album right after he blew up and made a guest appearance on David Bowie's smash "Let's Dance. This marks Johnny's last and probably best album. Johnny's entire personnel spanning his entire career make an appearance. From Bobby Kyle and Joel Perry to Johnny himself, you are in blues guitar heaven.
