• The Blues Harmonica of Big Walter HORTON - In Session, 1951-1956

The latest volume in our 'In Session' series is devoted to one of the most influential but possibly least known blues harmonica players of all time, Big Walter Horton.

Once again, we feature all of Walter's own recordings plus examples of the session work, he undertook in Memphis and Chicago.

The five-year period from 1951 to 1956 that this collection covers features his work with such notable blues stars as Otis Rush, Jimmy Rogers, Johnny Shines, Tampa Red and Sunnyland Slim.

Willie Dixon who also features on his own Jasmine CD (JASMCD3116) was often quoted as saying that in his opinion 'Walter Horton is the best harmonica player I ever heard'.

After listening to these 28 examples of his work you may well agree.

Fully detailed liner notes.
