Dennis Coffey remains an unsung hero from the halcyon era of Detroit soul, contributing guitar to landmark records issued on the Motown, Ric-Tic, and Revilot labels in addition to cutting a series of efforts under his own name, most notably the cult classic blaxploitation soundtrack Black Belt Jones. Born and raised in the Motor City, Coffey learned to play guitar at age 13 while visiting relatives in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Though a fan of country music throughout adolescence, while attending Detroit's McKenzie High he also immersed himself in rock & roll, jazz, and blues, drawing inspiration from guitarists from Chuck Berry to Scotty Moore to Wes Montgomery. Coffey made his studio debut backing little-known rockabilly cat Vic Gallon on "I'm Gone," issued on the singer's own Gondola label. From there he played in a rockabilly duo with vocalist Durwood Hutto, eventually signing a recording contract with Jackie Wilson's manager, Nat Tarnopol. Through Tarnopol, Coffey met Motown owner Berry Gordy Jr., b ...

That's the joint, That's the jam! – Theme from Black Belt Jones by Dennis Coffey, from
A nugget of wisdom from Lenny Kaye: "A few months ago, I played at a Les Paul tribute with virtuoso guitar players like James Burton and Lonnie Mack, Dennis Coffey, Duane Eddy. And I felt like, 'This is who I am, this is what I do,' and I put myself in that situation and I just let it fly. I figured, 'I'm not them, but hey, they're not me,' and that's a great feeling of accomplishment. And I know whenever I go out I can play something that comes from me, I feel like I have these years to use as kind of an emotional support to do what it is I do, and I feel comfortable with who I am as a musician." - from Feeding Back: Conversations with Alternative Guitarists
