Jimmy T-99 Nelson RIP

bad news from the Houston Chronicle. Jimmy T-99 Nelson died on July 30th. A nice history of Jimmy can be read here. Nelson had a couple of hits T-99 Blues, and Meet Me With Your Black Dress On. Another nice story on Nelson can be read here at the Houston Press Blog.

Houston Press also found a video of Nelson on Youtube. It is a very nice version of Piney Brown Blues done at one time by Big Joe Turner. It was about one of the classic bars down on Vine Street in KC, and Piney Brown owned one of the best clubs down their.
