The first impression made here is surprisingly not from the master's guitar, but from his vocal, the song itself more of a doo wop ballad than a gutbucket blues. The only kind of T-Bone still savored by European blues fans since the mad cow disease scare barely plays guitar at all as the song begins to unfold, casually wrapping his lips around the lines like a saloon singer with a couple of shots under his belt. But when the instrumental section starts and he begins playing guitar, that's when the listener knows for sure this isn't a Johnny Hartman record. I Want a Little Girl was originally recorded in the late '60s for release on another label, and is in some ways like some of the sides Hartman created for Impulse with small combos backing him, sometimes even featuring guitarists, although never with the edge exhibited by Walker. That is not to say that the knives and swords brandished by the king of the Texas guitarists here are his sharpest and deadliest. The fact is, this is a relatively laid-back session to the point where the comparison to a smooth crooner such as Hartman becomes no joke, as the second side cuddles in with a version of "Gee Baby, Ain't I Good to You" that is probably more delightful than what Hartman himself might have made of the number. The band is tight yet laid-back and never pushy, with a tenor saxophonist and pianist who like to get adventurous in their solos, referencing various jazz points of departure. Tenorman Hal Singer serves something of a full-course meal on his "Feeling the Blues" break. The first musician one notices will inevitably be the drummer, S.P. Leary, whose ability to set the proper rhythmic tone as well as control the group's dynamics is evident from the first moments of the title track. He plays superbly throughout the entire record. Bassist Jackie Samson works perfectly with both the drummer and the pianist, while the leader himself seems to assume the role of a kind benefactor. It is an image that might work at odds with the notion of a bandleader in sharp control of the happenings. T-Bone Walker is just that, however. The notion is enforced every time he lays down the law with the sudden entrance of chopped chordal patterns, or sets a new number up with a riff that will later become the essence of his guitar solo. The tone of his instrument itself has been better and fans of the guitarist may even rate parts of his work here as chopped steak in comparison with other T-Bones that have been served. ---Eugene Chadbourne, AllMusic Review

T-Bone Walker, who died on March 16, 1975, may be forgotten by the wider public, but he remains one of the most innovative and influential musicians of the 20th century.

He was the first person to play blues on an electric guitar and led the way for the late blues maestro BB King, who said: “When I heard T-Bone Walker play the electric guitar I had to have one.”

As well as being a remarkable musician, Walker was one of the great showmen. Even in the Forties, he would perform stage acrobatics such as the splits. Walker did almost everything that Jimi Hendrix did later, from exploiting feedback to playing the guitar behind his back to playing his guitar with his teeth. No one of Walker's era would have set a precious guitar on fire, however, so Hendrix must have learned that one from someone else.

Chuck Berry was another musician who learned his stagecraft from Walker. "All the things people see me do on the stage I got from T-Bone Walker,” says Berry, the master of the stage duck walk.

But he should be remembered for more than just being an insatiable showman. Aaron Thibeaux Walker, who was born on May 28 1910, in Linden, Texas, was a major innovator of Texas Blues, Chicago Blues, Jump Blues, and West Coast Blues. He was a splendid singer and songwriter, too, who was equally adept at playing the piano, banjo, ukulele, violin and mandolin.

Walker was of African-American and Cherokee descent. His parents, Movelia Jimerson and Rance Walker, were both musicians and his nickname was given to him by an aunt (he had originally been called T-Bow). Walker was playing music from the age of five and was inspired in his early teenage years by the blues singers Ida Cox and Leroy Carr, Lonnie Johnson and Bessie Smith. "Bessie Smith is my favourite girl blues singer," Walker recalled in a 1947 interview. "Ma Rainey could sing the blues, but she couldn't sing the blues like Bessie. They had different styles. Bessie was the queen for everybody, better than Ethel Waters."

His golden period was between 1946 and 1950. Walker played regularly at the Rhumboogie club in Chicago and when it closed, at the end of the Second World War, the owner started Rhumboogie Records. Walker was one of the first artists to record for the label. The 10 songs he cut for that label got him noticed and in 1946 he signed to the more powerful Black And White Records.

Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just as Bad) was recorded in September 1947. This was to become the most famous of Walker's songs and has been covered by numerous musicians including Bobby Bland and The Allman Brothers. In this same period Walker recorded Inspiration Blues, T-Bone Shuffle, Go Back To The One You Love, Bobby Sox Blues, I’m Still In Love With You and West Side Baby.

Listen afresh and you will hear Walker had a sound and playing style all his own; unique phrasing with smooth and melodic staccato runs. He played solos that brought the guitar out of its role as an accompanying, rhythm-oriented instrument. He was one of the first musicians who proved that a guitar could go head-to-head with brass, pianos and woodwinds as a legitimate solo instrument.

Although his success back home in the Sixties was limited, he delighted audiences wherever he played and toured Europe regularly. Walker visited England several times during the decade (playing at big venues such at the Hammersmith Odeon and small ones such as the Wyvern Ale House in Leicester).

Walker had one last triumph up sleeve, when his album Good Feelin′ won a Grammy Award for Best Ethnic or Traditional Folk Recording in 1971.

Walker had a stroke in 1974 and died, aged 64, of bronchial pneumonia following another stroke in March 1975. He remains a man who changed the face of music and is still celebrated in Texas every year with the T Bone Walker Blues Festival. As he said himself, a quote used in the original Telegraph obituary (printed below): "I played sweet blues." --- Martin Chilton,

A six-CD boxed set -- an education in the lineage of urban blues. It appears that T-Bone Walker had a greater influence on urban blues players than any other single talent. His guitar, vocals, song selection, and sheer style live on today in nearly every blues performer. He is the master. --- Michael Erlewine, Rovi

T-Bone Walker is best known for composing "Stormy Monday," but the late guitarist's impact extended far beyond writing one of the enduring classics of the blues.

Walker, who died in 1975 at 64, played a pivotal role in shaping the modern blues sound. He pioneered the electric guitar in the late 1930s and established it as a lead instrument playing single string solo lines rather than just rhythm chords.

His acrobatic performing style--including splits, flips and playing guitar behind his neck--reportedly was a major influence on Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley.

Though Walker was initiated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, none of the early recordings that made him famous had been available on an American album for 15 years. That changed with the recent release of "The Complete Recordings of T-Bone Walker, 1940-1954."

And a rock fan listening to Walker's guitar on 1947's "On Your Way Blues" or 1950's "Strollin' With Bone" might easily identify it as Chuck Berry. "The Natural Blues" has the kind of classic guitar solo and arrangement that Texas bluesmen and rockabilly cats have been going to school onfor decades. And the package provides the first opportunity for today's fans to hear the original version of "Stormy Monday."

Aaron Walker was born in Linden, Tex., in 1911, and his family moved to Dallas when he was 4. Walker was Blind Lemon Jefferson's "guide boy" as a youth, leading the influential singer-guitarist around Dallas. Walker later played guitar in traveling shows featuring the great early blues singers Ida Cox and Ma Rainey.

Walker moved to Los Angeles in 1935 and cut the first song on the Mosaic package in 1940 with the Les Hite Orchestra. After World War II ended, he hit his stride. His first postwar recordings were for Chicago's Rhumboogie label, but he found his niche when he signed with the Los Angeles-based Black & White label in 1946.

"Stormy Monday" the following year was one of nine R&B hits he accumulated for that label, its subsidiary Comet, and Capitol, which bought Walker's master tapes from Black & White in 1949. He moved to Imperial Records in 1950 but failed to match his earlier chart success.

After the '50s rock 'n' roll onslaught, Walker retained his popularity better than many other blues artists. In 1962, he was one of the featured artists on the first American Folk Blues Festival tour, which opened up the European market for touring blues musicians and inspired the British blues-rock bands that triggered the late '60s American blues revival.

Walker continued performing and occasionally recording with diminishing success until he died of complications stemming from a stroke in 1975.

Compared to a Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson or B. B. King, Walker has been overlooked as a pioneering bluesman, but the Mosaic package supports the testimony of popular bluesman Albert King, who recently said, "I used to listen to all types of music, but when T-Bone Walker came out with his style--the singin', sustained notes he played--I said, 'This is it.' " ---Don Snowden,

Let me say from the start that this is my first experience with T-Bone Walker so this price is just about as good as it gets for a brand new disc regardless of the artist. I thought I had a pretty good handle on the blues and then I heard this guy. Talk about jaw This is smooth, silky, laid back blues from a master of the genre. T-Bone's blues comes across in a more subtle and easy going fashion and I found it to be unbelievable pleasant to listen to. I can't accurately speak of this in comparison to other cds from this guitarist, but I can say that for this price, even if you would categorize yourself as a casual blues fan, this is a bargain you simply can not pass up. Put it on, sit on the front porch, sip your beverage, and enjoy! Quite honestly, one of the best blues cds I've ever heard. ---Steve,

Texas blues guitar legend Aaron Thibeault "T-Bone" Walker is the hero of this 14th volume in the Charly Blues Masterworks series. These 16 historic recordings made for the Capitol and Black & White labels during the years 1942-1948 demonstrate exactly how and why T-Bone influenced generations of singers and electric guitarists. Given the fact that his discography is packed to the gills with serviceable retrospectives, Charly's T-Bone sampler is both sensibly selected and pleasantly affordable. Perfect music for chili preparation, barbecues, picnics, and for drinking beer out of long-neck bottles while the car is up on cinder blocks and the engine's all took apart. ---arwulf arwulf, Rovi

Walker held the guitar differently — perpendicular to his body and parallel with the stage floor. He also played it behind his head long before Jimi Hendrix took that stunt mainstream. That wasn't the only Walker influence on rock 'n' roll.

"Chuck Berry just took T-Bone's style and put it to a different beat," says Robillard. "And a lot of the technique and the little T-Bone phrases that define his style, Chuck Berry, when he rearranged the beat, they became rock 'n roll guitar licks. So in essence, T-Bone was not only the first electric blues guitar player, but he was the first electric rock 'n roll guitar player, really."

But it was Walker's "Stormy Monday" blues that became his signature. Robillard says it's a different kind of blues.

"The guitar chord line, it's a little guitar ninth chord figure. That was a unique thing and it became T-Bone's signature. And that chord line seems to have grabbed everybody because everybody plays it with that line in it. And it's almost like a law, that you have to, when you play 'Stormy Monday.'"

T-Bone Walker not only inspired Robillard and B. B. King, but also Freddie and Albert King, Eric Clapton, Duane Allman and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Like B. B. King, Walker was a living link to pre-war blues for the younger generation of players. Walker continued performing almost to the end. But a lifetime of ill health and drinking led to a stroke in 1974. Aaron T-Bone Walker died on March 16, 1975. ---

I've been waiting for this CD release for a long time. Produced by Lieber and Stoller the disc is a who's who of great players from rock, jazz and blues... with luminaries such James Booker, Zoot Sims, Wilton Felder, Joe Sample, Jim Gordon, Dean Parks, Larry Carlton and many more. Terrific arrangements, great production and of course some of the best vocal tracks that T-Bone Walker has recorded. This disc should have been released years ago and should be awarded a Grammy as one of the best Blues/ R&B reissues. --- D. Sidney,

Recorded in Paris during November 1968, Good Feelin' was the album that rekindled public interest in the life and music of Aaron "T-Bone" Walker throughout Europe and even in some portions of the United States of America. The album begins and closes with informal narration spoken by Walker while accompanying himself on the piano. The band behind him on the other ten tracks includes guitarist Slim Pezin, pianist Michel Sardaby and Cameroonian saxophonist Manu Dibango blowing tenor alongside Pierre Holassian on alto, Francis Cournet on baritone, and a trumpeter whose identity remains a mystery. With T-Bone's electric guitar sizzling in its own juice and the horns signifying together over soulful organ grooves and freshly ground basslines, all of this music is rich and powerful. Each track is delicious; a funky instrumental strut entitled "Poontang" is the tastiest of all.
