  • Dussault and Dyson, back in the day

Sad news on the local blues front. Colin Dussault tells us that James "Jimi" Dyson, a fixture on the Cleveland blues scene throughout the '80s, passed away in his East Cleveland home over the weekend.

Dyson played frequently at Brother's Lounge, Fat Fish Blue, and the Main Street Cafe.

He stopped playing in the mid '90s due to health reasons.

Dussault says a memorial jam session is in the works. We'll keep you posted on details. —Michael Gallucci
