James Matthews

Written by  546163 comments

James Edward Matthews was born in 1943.

James insatiable thirst for music began at an early age of 4.

It all began with James grandmother giving him permission to cross the streets to listen to the Marching band in the school yard at St. Malachy where he attended Kindergarten.

Born in Gloster, MS near Camp Van Dorn where his father was drafted in the military. It’s no question why the love for music was in James’s DNA as James’ mother built a house in Greenville, MS., she also opened a Night Club called “Club Desire” where Milton Campbell, “Little Milton” & Oliver Sain’s father were house band members.

James would later meet Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters and Ike & Tina Turner.

James journey involved him being around some of the great musicians early in life.

When James was about 15 years old his mom became the babysitter for Ike & Tina’s children

(Craig, Ronnie Boo & Ike Jr.) She also baby sat Tina’s sister child Jackie.

 James studied at Chicago’s Cosmopolitan School of Music after high school.

Then after college he moved to San Francisco, California.

James later released his first of two singles ‘Crossing the Baha’.

 His last single followed shortly after ‘Ironstein’ under the name James Matthews Quartet.

After returning to St. Louis James worked as a touring musician for

Albert “Blue Boy” King, Eddie Fisher, Percy James & Albert St. James of Quartet Tre’s Bien.

James notoriety put him in position to meet some of the legends like John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Grover Washington Jr. just to name a few.

Later Holland-Dozier-Holland out of Detroit, MI offered James a recording contract, but the contract was turned down due to James choosing to fulfil a spiritual path.

The authors write that recent studies have confirmed “that all- cause mortality benefits of statins in the primary prevention setting are clinically and statistically significant.” The new study, they say, gives “supporting evidence for initiating statin therapy in individuals who are at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.” However, they acknowledge that “expanding the limits of statin therapy to a wider population of individuals may have important safety implications. Although rare, adverse events associated with statin therapy range from mild to moderate, and appear to increase with treatment intensity.”

At one time the sight of migrant cranes on genuine passage to and from unknown territories seemed to echo larger human mysteries. In Asia, the birds became a symbol of the ultimate journey. They were said to carry the souls of the departed on their ascent to heaven. Yet alongside these transcendent notions, cranes retain a genuine capacity to illuminate some of the most important political issues of our age. There is no finer example than the story – one is almost tempted to call it the parable – of whooping cranes in North America. At one time this magnificent species was hounded towards extinction until, by the 1940s, the world population stood at 29 birds. Today, the concerted efforts to save it are still ongoing and it has become a central emblem for all North American conservation.
