COMPLETE DISCOGRAPHY

LITTLE WALTER FOUNDATION.jpg

The harmonica has been from the origins of blues music, an instrument without which the development of the twelve bars would not have been possible as it has reached to this day. John Lee Williamson, Sony Boy Williamson I, Little Walter, Big Walter Horton, Junior Wells, James Cotton or Carey Bell modernized their use in the 40s and 50s in Chicago and their relief has reached today with musicians such as Sugar Blue, Bob Corritore or this case Billy Branch. This album is more than a tribute to the most transcendent blues harmonica of Chicago, Branch has updated fifteen Walter's classics in a very honest and personal way, without too much protocol and straight to the heart. Modern  Chicago blues in purest form.
