Following the success of our Avid Roots series which includes classic blues names from Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Jimmy Reed, B.B King, Freddie King, Albert King to Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, Lonnie Johnson and John Lee Hooker we thought it was time to add another name to our Roots roster. Mr. Aaron Thibeaux Walker, better known to blues fans as T-Bone Walker. Born in 1910 to musician parents, the young T-Bone Walker stands somewhat apart from what we consider the more traditional blues performers of his era. He was not an itinerant rural blues man travelling restlessly around the country making a living with an acoustic guitar. He does however have a fabulous back story in that he began his musical career at age 15 when he escorted a family friend, none other than the legendary blues man Blind Lemon Jefferson to his gigs, all the while, no doubt, soaking up the blues from this great blues icon. However, his style was never that of the rural acoustic blues singer but instead went down the road of jump and electric blues with a healthy dose of jazz for good measure. In fact it is testament to his unique style that he was posthumously inducted into both the Blues and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame. Walker made many, many fine recordings across the years from the late 1920s to the 1970s. Many of the classic albums we are featuring were put together from these recording sessions and we have tried to provide as accurate a picture of the dates and musicians as possible. The main thing is to just sit back and enjoy the electric blues of the unique and amazing Mr T-Bone Walker.
