Allaboutjazz has an interview with James "Blood" Ulmer entitled James Blood Ulmer: "There is Another Place to Go". Please note, there are some mistakes in the introduction to the interview, but the interview itself is quite interesting.

The blues, see, people don’t want to look at it right. They don’t realize that blues is an ingredient. And it’s in everything. You can put it in all music, all kind of music. Blues is in everything. So that ingredient is there, and you can make it stand alone, it’ll stand alone, too. But it’s in other things, and I’ve been doing that forever. I don’t have to make it stand alone just to prove that I am bluesy.
