Deep in the Blues is a fascinating jam session between James Cotton, guitarist Joe Louis Walker, and jazz bassist Charlie Haden. The trio runs through a number of classic blues songs written by Muddy Waters, Percy Mayfield, and Sonny Boy Williamson and a few originals by Walker and Cotton. The sound is intimate and raw, which is a welcome change from Cotton's usual overproduced records.

Review by Thom Owens, Allmusic.com

This record was made in 1996 just after James had surgery for throat cancer and was one of the last albums he sang on before giving up singing to concentrate just on playing harp. His vocals do sound a bit rough on some tracks but it's not a deal breaker and his harp playing is still fabulous - with a foot in both the country and the Chicago camps. The record features James accompanied by Joe Louis Walker on guitar, David Maxwell on piano and also (surprisingly) modern jazz bassist Charlie Haden - but don't worry Charlie stays in the blues groove and is rock-solid throughout. The feel and playing really remind me of some of Sonny Boy Williamson II's (Rice Miller) records were he was accompanied by minimal backing with just bass/piano and Sonny Boy was one of James's mentors and he covers Williamson's "Dealin' with the devil".

James has made better records but I do like the feel of this one, his harp playing is top-notch throughout and the accompanists are all very sympathetic, there is also a good choice of songs featuring Cotton originals, songs by old boss Muddy Waters and well-know blues such as "Worried life blues" and "Play with you poodle". "Ozark Mountain Railroad" shows what Haden can do, it's a melodic double bass solo on the "John Henry" theme - I would have liked to hear James playing along or perhaps other songs featuring improvisations, with the two men trading licks. I still felt that this was a very worthwhile record with James very much centre stage and it did go on to win a Grammy for best traditional blues record.
