His musical endeavors were set in motion by Blues Brother (and fellow Saturday Night Live alum) Dan Aykroyd when Aykroyd was looking to re-form the act he began with John Belushi in the late '70s. Aykroyd approached Jim to take on the role of Zee Blues, and, even though Belushi had no real musical credentials, he took the job. To hone his chops, Belushi began to practice with the House of Blues house band, the Sacred Hearts. The collaboration worked, and Jim joined as a permanent frontman. Jim Belushi & the Sacred Hearts (as they were now called) worked the benefits circuit, as well as playing for corporations and casinos. Their debut album together, 36-22-36, was released in 1998. He also recorded an album with Dan Aykroyd, Have Love Will Travel, which was released in 2003. ~ Chris True, Rovi
