Music City Blues Society Newsletter
"Milk And Cookies"....conjures up a hybrid brew of in your face blues, old-school soul, and funk that is a definite crowd-pleaser. Sheryl and Don Crow

Blues In The South
"My Baby's Place" is a wonderful straight blues that should win "Blues Song of the Year". Norman Darwen

LIVING BLUES
“Alvin Jett himself proves to be a potent singer and guitarist in the post-Albert King style… Give credit to Jett and his band for giving their blues a fresh sound.” Jim DeKoster

Bio

A native of East St. Louis, Alvin Jett has been entertaining audiences throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area for over twenty-five years. Jett came from a musical family. His father, Robert Jett, played drums with the likes of Little Milton, Albert King, and Benny Sharp.

After a brief stint in the navy, Alvin returned to St. Louis and began to seriously focus on playing the guitar, something he had dabbled with as a child. He joined Tommy Bankhead & the Blues Eldorados, a popular local group, where he honed his skills playing throughout the St. Louis area for several years. He went on to lead various bands in the area before forming Alvin Jett & the Phat noiZ, his current group, in the year 2003.

The Phat noiZ is Jett’s means for delivering his fiery brand of in-your-face, hard driving blues music. The band’s original material reveals roots in rock, funk, R&B, soul, and at times, hints of gospel and rockabilly. The band has worked hard to craft a signature sound that transforms easily from high-energy rock to soulful blues ballads.

When not on the road performing at one of their 200+ annual shows, Alvin Jett & the Phat noiZ reside in St. Louis, Missouri. The band is a veteran of the International Blues Challenge (IBC), and in 2007, received the Independent Music Award for Best Blues Song with their composition “Angels Sing the Blues” from Milk & Cookies, their 2006 release. Alvin Jett & the Phat noiZ were also finalists in the 2006 IBC, and their 2005 release, Wet My Beak, was in the final four for Best Self-Released CD.

The band’s latest CD, How Long (2008), is their first album released outside of the United States. Compiled and released by Belgian record label Blues Boulevard, the recording features songs from the band’s first two albums along with new artwork and liner notes. It is currently available throughout Europe and the U.S.
