With his 19th album, Miles to Go, Colin James is getting back into the blues. Wait a minute, you ask: hasn't Colin James always played the blues? Well, yes, but back when he was signed to his first record deal in 1988, his producer - who'd worked with Ray Charles and Derek and the Dominoes - explicitly told him not to play any blues, because the label expected a pop hit.

So much of Colin James's career has pointed him to this moment: joyfully tangled up in the blues, which, as he notes, "is the only genre where you can maintain a young profile at the age of 53."
