[5-Minute Dance Party] Juke









The best thing about the Chicago Blues sound is that you can hear them railroad engines

switching tracks on the Belt Railway to keep on drivin’, drivin’, drivin’ late into the night.




Blues harmonica player Little Walters says he picked up the blues harmonica “out of habit,” but this storied sideman set the standard awfully high for all blues harmonica players who came after him.

This clip is actually from the American Legends of Folk Blues series (Vol. 1967). I love seeing the blues greats play live, and I especially thought you would love seeing Little Walters strut his magnificent stuff.

It took some serious doing to track down the name of this instrumental because this clip was wrongly titled as Little Walters’ Jump. It’s actually a version of his hit single Juke.
