On Thursday, you have one more chance to ask if Are Glad to Be in America? That’s when guitarist/singer James Blood Ulmer closes out his two-night stand at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis. Born in South Carolina, Ulmer spent time in Pittsburg and Detroit before settling in New York in the early 1970s where he connected with saxophonist Ornette Coleman. That relationship would produce the album Tales of Captain Black finally released in 1978. Two years later, Ulmer also issued his striking Are You Glad to Be in America?
