Overthe years he’s worked with Albert Collins, Keb Mo', Coco Montoya, Roy Brown, Chaka Khan, Ricky Lee Jones, Jan & Dean,Mitch Michell (Jimi Hendrix's drummer)and Tommy Castro,to name just a few.

Seen live, Armstrong has a confident stage presence that combines gracewith grit. Few blues artists know how to play the crowd as James can,shifting dynamics from a whisper to a growl. Wherever he travels,from Lebanon to Alaska, from Hong-Kong to Norway, hismagnetism continues to hush a noisy rabble or entice acrowdto follow him out into the street or down thelength of a beach. Little wonder he’s been dubbed“The Ambassador of the Blues.”
