t-bone walker & ,

What DiMaggio was to baseball, what Lindbergh was to aviation, Aaron (T-Bone) Walker is to the Blues. No orthodox singer, T- Bone has no eyes — never did have — for croon-ing Hit Parade ballads of the moment. His forte is the twelve-bar Blues, which he treats three ways while accompanying himself on a polished electrically amplified guitar. T-Bone's "ways" include (1) fast Blues, (2) slow Blues and (3) slowest Blues, and he wheels 'em and deals 'em. more times than not, in precisely that order.& ,

With Les Hite's California orchestra, then in the 1940s with Freddie Slack, Walker attracted unusual attention as a guitarist and Blues bawler. Finally, as it must to all deserving men, success brought success to T-Bone and his titanic talents. He went out on his own, "just for myself," and recorded a dozen or more best-selling records among his other accomplishments. The best of these are presented between these covers.


& ,The Blues, T-Bone is adamant, can mean most anything lyrically. Happy times, frustrating times, plain bad times. You'll hear these moods— and more — as T-Bone paints pictures in indigo throughout the selections within this package. Onstage ...Center ... Front ...The Great T-Bone and his Guitar!

T-Bone Walker

Who's the father of the electric blues? Very simple: T-Bone Walker. Of course, a handful of blues-based guitarists had already experimented with amplifying their instruments before T-Bone's appearance, but he wrote the vocabulary that everyone who followed him eagerly adopted. In short, T-Bone was the source. The elegant Mean Old World, recorded in Hollywood on July 20, 1942 with pianist Freddie Slack, bassist Jud DeNaut and drummer Dave Coleman as accompanists, was the real starting point for Walker, even though he had made his first record years earlier.

Born on 28 May 1910 in Linden, Texas, Aaron Thibeaux (T-Bone was a corruption of his middle name) Walker learned the blues from his mother, who played the guitar, and a stepfather who plucked the bass in the Dallas String Band. The famous blind Lemon Jefferson was another major influence - as a teenager Walker led him through Dallas, where Jefferson performed as a street musician. Before concentrating on his guitar playing, Walker acquired extraordinary agility as a professional dancer.

Walker made his first recordings at the end of 1929, a 78 for Columbia under the name Oak Cliff T-Bone (Oak Cliff was the district of Dallas where he grew up). At that time, of course, Walker only played acoustic guitar, even when he performed as a duo with another future pioneer of the electric guitar, Charlie Christian. T-Bone moved out to Los Angeles in the mid-1930s, where he continued to dance and concentrate on his full baritone singing - he was only a singer on his next record appearance with bandleader Les Hite in 1940.

Initially inspired by Les Paul, T-Bone began to try out the newly launched electric guitar models at that time. He decided on a Gibson ES-250 and soon developed the unusual technique of holding his guitar flat in front of him like a plate while he pecked grandiose melody single-tone lines and wonderful, voluminous niche chords. Walker's brilliant innovations prepared the field for most of the following, influential guitarists of post-war blues, from Gatemouth Brown and B.B. King to Albert Collins and Johnny Copeland. His acrobatic shows also impressed his fans.

"Man, he did the splits while he was playing the guitar behind his head," Collins raved. "It was incredible!"
