In 1959 he had formed the Jimmy Wisner Trio with Chick Kinney and Ace Tsome. In 1961, following their first album, 'Blues for Harvey', Wisner recorded 'Asia Minor', which combined a melody from Grieg's Piano Concerto in A Minor with a rock 'n roll beat. After being turned down by numerous labels, Wisner set up his own label, Future Records, with record distributor Harry Chipetz and engineer, Amel Corset
The Blues is the second album by Alex Harvey. The album was released in 1964. Alex Harvey was accompanied by his brother Les on this album. Originally The Blues would have been the third album, but Polydor did not release the second one (20 unreleased songs were put to CD in 1999). Rumour has it that Alex was not happy about this. He fulfilled his contract, but paid them back with a commercial disaster by making this acoustic album.
Wisner was originally trained as a classical musician but, while attending Temple University in Philadelphia, ventured into jazz with the Jimmy Wisner Trio. In 1959, he released his debut jazz album, Blues For Harvey, and followed the next year with Apperception but it was a rock record he recorded under the name Kokomo that brought him his biggest, although hidden behind the pseudonym, success. Taking an old piano and putting shellac on the hammers, he played a boogie woogie version of Grieg's Piano Concerto in A Minor. Wisner shopped the song around to numerous labels but couldn't.
