Birdlegg - Birdlegg

CD Information

While practically every other blues harmonica player of his generation fell under the spell of Little Walter, Birdlegg is, and always was, different. Instead, he was captivated by the generation before Jacobs; the one that inspired the virtuoso to completely redefine postwar blues harmonica in the early 1950s. Going back to a style reminiscent of two of the greatest early postwar and country blues harmonica players, Sonny Boy Williamson and Sonny Terry, Birdlegg's expressive, full-tilt playing and singing also brings a fresh and distinctive approach to traditional gutbucket blues - something that has become all too rare these days.

Artist Video

Birdlegg Blues Jam at the Bay View Boat Club (08:47)
I videotaped this at the Bay View Boat Club. Mike Dingle hosts 3rd Thursdays and all kinds of great musicians show up to play. One of the highlights of the night is Birdlegg and Steve Gannon and some members of the Tight Fit Blues Band. Mark Bode plays piano on this. The band plays every Saturday night at Everett & Jones in Oakland.
