His father was from the Belgian Congo and his mother was part African American and Cherokee.

Album · 1970 · 6 Songs. More By Champion Jack Dupree. See All. Two Classic Albums Plus 40s & 50s Singles (Blues From The Gutter, Natural & Soulful Blues) (Digitally Remastered).

Arranged By – Champion Jack Dupree, King Curtis. Recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Montreux, Switzerland on June 17, 1971.

This live set from the 1971 Montreux Jazz Festival was co-led by tenor saxophonist King Curtis (who tragically would be killed three months later) and veteran blues pianist/vocalist Champion Jack Dupree. With guitarist Cornell Dupree (in excellent form), bassist Jerry Jemmott and drummer Oliver Jackson laying down the foundation, Curtis and Dupree find a great deal of common musical ground. Dupree has quite a few witty vocals (particularly the near-classic "Junker's Blues") while taking choruses of irregular length that keep his sidemen continually guessing.
