The Collection: 20 Blues Greats.
Atlantic took some chances with Walker, dispatching him to Chicago for a 1955 date with Junior Wells and Jimmy Rogers that produced "Why Not" and "Papa Ain't Salty. Even better were the 1956-1957 . dates that produced the scalding instrumental "Two Bones and a Pick" (which finds Walker dueling it out with nephew . Rankin and jazzman Barney Kessel).
Album · 1959 · 15 Songs. It's hard to think of a single occasion that wouldn't be improved by a few licks from electric blues master T-Bone Walker, and these mid-'50s recordings find him at the top of his game. His Gibson ES-250 is stingingly sharp as he combines with Junior Wells and Jimmy Rogers on the sexy slow blues "Why Not" and slyly salacious "Papa Ain't Salty. His collaboration with jazz guitarist Barney Kessel on the swinging "Two Bones and a Pick" is nothing short of an explosive, tag-team blowout. T-Bone Blues T-Bone Walker.
T-Bone Walker's masterpiece T-Bone Blues is often cited as not only one his finest achievements, but also one of the blues genre's most important crowned jewels. This 1959 LP showcases this late blues master's legendary handling of the electric guitar & his unequalled ability to powerfully sing some of the most revered classics in modern blues history. This recording features the artist's greatest tunes like "T-Bone Shuffle," "Papa Ain't Salty No More" and of course the iconic "Stormy Monday Blues. T-Bone Walker wrote the book on electric blues guitar. Any fan of blues or American roots music should have some T-Bone in their collection and this particular CD is outstanding.
