Since Taj Mahal, Little Walter, Junior Wells (and a few others), are currently on heavy rotation in my ipod, I can’t help but produce this set below…which is LONG overdue, if you ask me.

“The Blues is the roots, everything else is the fruits.” Willie Dixon

Meet Lexington Croch, bassist; Mingus Muddmaker, guitarist extraordinaire.

Here is Earl Bixby Jr, pianist; Buzz “Bumble Bee” Benton (who earned the apt nickname after being able to play “The Flight of the Bumblebees” on his trumpet in its entirety in under 20 seconds) and Waylon LeRoy, who has put many a ladies under the soulful spell of his tenor sax.

Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to pop in “Señor Blues” and chill out for a while.
