1999 Grammy Nominee, "Best Traditional Blues Recording" 1999 Recipient NEA Award for Traditional Artist 1999 Recipient W.C. Handy Award, "Best Piano" Pinetop Perkins admittedly wasn't the originator of the seminal piano piece "Pinetop's Boogie Woogie," but it's a safe bet that more people associate it nowadays with Pinetop Perkins than with the man who devised it in the first place, Clarence "Pinetop" Smith.

STEADY ROLLING BOB MARGOLIN is a veteran of the Muddy Waters band from 1973 through Using the Delta slide guitar style of his mentor, Margolin unleashes his ferocious guitar playing, heartfelt singing and clever songwriting to define his own intense style - a style that is at once contemporary and deeply rooted.
Willie "Big Eyes" Smith Willie played drums with Muddy Waters for fifteen years. His traditional "shuffle" style has been regarded as the heart and soul of the Chicago blues sound, with Willie laying the beat behind many of the blues classics.
Precious Bryant Precious Bryant’s guitar work is brilliant, marked by bottomless bass notes, chiming arpeggios on the high strings and gently driving rhythms, while her singing is simply amazing, full of joy and sly wit.
Blues harmonica legend Carey Bell is one of the very few players today who didn't learn his craft by listening to old records, but by studying directly under the masters. "Little Walter, he showed me a lot of things," says Bell, "but Big Walter, he was crazy. He did all kinds of shit other harp players couldn't do." "Bell has set the mark for the harp kings to beat. Stunningly great, haunting." -- ASSOCIATED PRESS
