Lauded by Peter Marks of The New York Times as "powerfully enormously moving play," Side Man is the comic and tender story of Clifford, a young man who looks back on his family life; prior to leaving home, Clifford reconciles the role that he has long played as parent to his parents. Smoothly gliding between present and past, the play tells the story of a time before the Beatles and Elvis, when jazzmen were heroic like ballplayers and there was no shortage of Saturday-night gigs. Side Man is both a tribute to the men whose lives were their music and a sober look at a family drama left in the wake of that passion.

For more than fifty years, Chicago drummer Jimmi Mayes served as a sideman behind some of the greatest musicians and musical groups in history. He began his career playing the blues in the juke joints of Mississippi, sharpened his trade under the mentorship of drum legends Sam Lay and Fred Below in the steamy nightclubs of south Chicago, and hit it big in New York City behind such music legends as Tommy Hunt from the Flamingos, Marvin Gaye, and James Brown. Mayes played his drums behind blues giants Little Walter Jacobs, Jimmy Reed, Robert Junior Lockwood, Earl Hooker, Junior Wells, Pinetop Perkins, and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. He lived for a while with Motown sensation Martha Reeves and her family and traveled with the Shirelles and the Motown Review. Jimi Hendrix was one of Mayes’s best friends, and they traveled together with Joey Dee and the Starliters in the mid-1960s. Mayes lived through racial segregation, the civil rights movement of the 1960s, the integration of rock bands, and the emergence of Motown. He personally experienced the sexual and moral revolutions of the sixties, was robbed of his musical royalties, and survived a musical drought. He’s been a pimp and a drug pusher—and lived to tell the tale when so many musicians have not. This sideman to the stars witnessed music history from the best seat in the house—behind the drum set.

  • Publisher: Trafford Publishing

Sidemen-professional musicians hired to perform with groups of which they are not regular members-are essential to bands and orchestras, but most remain anonymous for their entire lives. A few music aficionados might know their names, and sometimes a sideman becomes a star for compositions or for exceptional performances. Even so, few ever achieve fame or an identity separate from the organizations with whom they perform. "My Best to You ..." captures a glimpse of Kasper "Stranger" Malone, a musician struggling to survive in the early days of recorded music. In his own words, Malone documents, names, places, and personalities of that era. He played in every musical genre, from early recorded country music with Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers to silent movie orchestras, from live radio to jazz recordings with Benny Goodman, Pee Wee Hunt, and Jack Teagarden. He played with symphony orchestras in San Francisco, Denver, Tucson, and Rome, Georgia, finally ending his long career full circle playing folk and bluegrass in North Georgia. With a Founder's Award from the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame, a Guinness World Records acknowledgement of his unprecedented seventy-seven year recording history, and a recently released documentary of his life, in his old age he found he had achieved an uncomfortable fame. Presented here is his history and biography, edited by his daughter, Patricia Poos and filled with fascinating details of a long and historic career.
