On Today’s Playlist: Live In Cook County Jail by B.B. King

Been on a serious blues streak for a while now, rekindling my early love for the sweet sounds of a “crying” electric guitar that first drew me to pick up the instrument many many moons ago.

Live In Cook County Jail I consider to be one of BB’s finest, even though it doesn’t get as much attention as some other live recordings he has done.

From a guitar playing perspective, I find BB one of the hardest players to “copy” – as in, it’s deceptively difficult to transcribe his solos note for note. There is so much subtlety and nuance to his playing, not to mention his impeccable touch and unique feel and phrasing. Still The King after all these years!

Give it spin!
