2011 three CD collection from the Blues legend. Without T-Bone's innovatory approach to playing the guitar there would have been no B.B. King, no Buddy Guy, no Freddie King, no Eric Clapton, nor any of the plank-spankers who strut the stage at Blues festivals and club gigs. The line began with T-Bone, who, along with his friend Charlie Christian, invented the vocabulary for the amplified guitar. Throughout the late 1940s, T-Bone cut a sequence of singles for labels like Black & White and Capitol that laid the groundwork for what became the prevailing style of Blues recording. T-Bone transferred to the Imperial label in 1950 but the music continued in an unbroken line of creative superiority, heard in 'The Hustle Is On', 'Strollin' With Bone', 'I Get So Weary' and 'Here In The Dark'. 75 tracks.

Label: Smoke Sessions Records | Release Year: 2017

Jazz great Bobby Watson celebrates some of the vital but less well-known contributions of African-Americans on Made in America, his first recording on Smoke Sessions Records. Saxophonist and composer Watson does his part to call attention to black pioneers in a variety of fields, from politics to pop culture, science to sports. These compositions are inspired by a few names that should be familiar to jazz fans&emdash; Sammy Davis, Jr., and Grant Green&emdash; but also by more obscure historic figures such as Wendell Pruitt, Butterfly McQueen, Major Taylor, Madam C.J. Walker, Isaac Murphy, Bass Reeves, and Dr. Mark Dean. Watson explains, “This project has been a history lesson for me and I hope it will be a history lesson for the listeners.”

This live recording from Norway in 2016 captures the raw soul of Willie Walker. It is as good as any of his studio recordings. This CD features the talents of Kid Andersen and special guest Rick Estrin. Using the Nightcats as the rhythm section and featuring an outstanding Norwegian horn section, the performance crackles with fire and enthusiasm. Producers Kid Andersen and Jim Pugh both are featured and always add the right flavor to the song without overpowering the vocals. Covers of Sam Cooke, The Beatles and Bobby Rush sit alongside updated versions of his 60’s classics and round out this snapshot of this talented singer in his prime.

The legendary T-Bone Walker is playing a fundamental source of modern urban style blues and singing. His single-string solos influenced musicians such as BB King and so important blues rockers like Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. This CD contains one of the most difficult to find albums: The Great Blues Vocals & guitar. It was originally released by Capitol Records end of 1962, and was no longer available for long. The LP consists of a selection of lesser known early recordings, recorded 1946-1947. In addition to the original album, the digitally remastered CD contains 16 bonus tracks, including a number of T-Bone Walker most difficult-to-find pieces, included in the early 1950s. Some of these pieces have been created, accompanied by the excellent Dave Bartholomew and his band, as well as by such great musicians like Maxwell Davis, Marl Young and Billy Hadnott.

This collection contains all but a few of the recordings issued on the much more expensive Capitol set Complete Capitol Black & White Recordings, minus the alternate takes. To my ears, the sound is very good. Comet/Birdland was very wise in their limited use of noise reduction. You hear all of the highs, lows and midrange very clearly with little to no surface noise at all, and no fake reverb.
