Taking inspiration from Charlie Christian and Lonnie Johnson, T-Bone Walker plays with an exceptionally elegant and relaxed style, the perfect foil for Charles Brown's piano. An innovator of this caliber could only spark emulation. T-Bone Walker's influence can be heard in B.B. King, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown or Buddy Guy. Even Jimi Hendrix confessed his indebtedness. Today guitarists, like Duke Robillard, Pete Mayes or Otis Grand, still perpetuate his legacy. In 1962 he toured with the very first American Folk Blues Festival (with John Lee Hooker). T-Bone Walker subsequently performed in Europe on a regular basis, with a marked preference for France. In November 1968, Black & Blue took advantage of one of his tours to have him record the album "Feelin’ The Blues," rightly considered to be one of the best he made at the end of his career. We thought it appropriate to add a few titles from his sessions with Jay McShann and Eddie Vinson, recorded a few months later while T-Bone was doing a stint at the Trois Mailletz club in Paris. T-Bone Walker is surely the most jazzy blues musician, while McShann and Vinson are among the most bluesy jazz musicians! It was impossible for this confrontation to produce anything but success.

This amazing ex-Robert Plant axeman at last on a UK label and playing the Blues. He appeared on a sell-out stage at the 2006 Great British R&B Festival where he amazed the audience with his wonderful and emotive playing. A superb album full of Innes exciting and innovative guitar playing at its best with the songs recorded "live" without much overdubbing. His playing is really varied from some head up blistering solos as in So Tired of Living, to the jazzy Desert Rain, there's a funky Natural High, even an acoustic track on Midlife Crisis. Innes Sibun is a British blues singer, songwriter and guitarist. He has released eleven albums to date.

In 1981 the Climax Blues Band was located in Los Angeles, recording yet another album to meet the heavy demand for their musical aspirations. Lucky For Some featured, once again, the tightly knit line up of Peter Haycock on guitar and vocals, Colin Cooper on vocals and saxophone, Derek Holt on vocals, bass guitar and keyboards and John Cuffley on drums. By now, the band had been on the road for a decade or more and played with a telepathic sense of communication on these nine superb original LP tracks, including four Haycock originals. But the guys were also helped out in the studio by some distinguished guests, notably the late session keyboard player Nicky Hopkins and vocalist Glenn Hughes. Complete with a saucy album cover design, Lucky For Some has some hot performances like Peter's Shake It Lucy and Derek Holt's Breakdown , plus a bonus track Darlin (single version).

By age 18 she was working full time as a professional keyboard player and lead singer/songwriter. Throughout her 30+ years in the music business she performed throughout 11 western states and Alaska working with a variety of acts from solo piano/vocals to full bands. As a true "on the road" musician playing 300 dates a year, she made her sole-living working in many styles of bands and acts. This crazy life lead her to write her humorous memoir: I’m Not a Groupie! I’m IN the Band! Which can be purchased at online retailers everywhere.
