    T-Bone Walker: April 7th - 13th

    Blues guitarist T-Bone Walker is one of the most influential musicians to rise up from the fertile Texas blues scene. The first man to go electric, his impact on blues guitar worldwide was huge. This week, Blue features T-Bone from his days with Capitol Records in the 40’s through to his Grammy Winner in 70’s and - especially - recordings made for Imperial Records during the 1950s.
