Lynwood Slim - " Last Call "

"Last Call"

Lynwood Slim followed the well-trodden path of many of the bluesmen of his generation: early interest in another instrument (in his case, trumpet), before having his head spun around by the sounds of Little Walter, Jimmy Reed, and other Chicago-based blues legends while in his early teens. His long and winding blues road has included lengthy stays in Minneapolis and Chicago, where he soaked up the true blues sounds and established a name for himself as a double threat on both vocals and harmonica.
First hand experience and apprenticeship under veteran blues masters such as multi-instrumentalist Leonard “Baby Doo” Caston and harmonica giant Big Walter Horton served Slim well as he mastered the subtleties of tone and phrasing, and developed his own distinctive voice in the blues.
His mastery of blues harmonica – both the ‘little harp’ and the more difficult chromatic - is second to none, and he’s also one of the finest blues vocalists of his generation. His recording career as a band leader and featured front man spans well over two decades and dozens of releases, and includes more ‘guest appearances’ on the releases of others than can easily be tallied. Couple his many years of performing and recording experience with a life that’s seen more ups and downs and ins and outs than the next three bluesmen of his generation combined, and add in a knack for writing strong and catchy original lyrics, and a deep love of swinging jazz, and you’ve got one of the most complete and appealing bluesmen in the business today: Lynwood Slim.
