BLUES IN CHICAGO

Today we feature a previously unheard take of “Evalena” with a typically fine Tampa vocal (but no stinging slide), a barking amplified harmonica break by Big Walter Horton, and fabulous rollicking piano by the great Little Johnny Jones. Couldn’t be better.


Tampa Red • Evalena [take A] • 1953


Tampa Red, vocal/guitar; Little Johnny Jones, piano; Walter Horton, harmonica; Willie Lacey, guitar; Ransom Knowling, bass; Odie Payne, drums. Chicago, 4 December 1953
