In a recent interview from Media Mikes, Jimmy Carter, a founding member of The Blind Boys of Alabama, mentioned the possibility of working with Ben again. Here's the quote followed by a link to the full interview:
MG (Mike Gencarelli, interviewer from Media Mikes): "You have teamed up with songwriters such as Ben Harper, Eric Clapton and Prince in the past; any more team ups planned next?"
JC (Jimmy Carter from The Blind Boys of Alabama): "I especially enjoyed working with Ben Harper. He is a great writer, a great singer and a great musician. He brought a lot to the table man. I really enjoyed working with him. I think Ben wants to do something else with us. We have to sit down and talk about it but I think he is ready…so we will see."
The Blind Boys of Alabama have a new Christmas album out with another past collaborator of Ben's, Taj Mahal. Here's a link for info on that:
