WILLIE BUCK & Lil’ Ed @ Rosa’s Lounge, Chicago
Willie Buck’s career as a blues singer began slowly after he arrived in the “Windy City,” Chicago, in the 1950s. He quickly got into the circles by exploring, through a relative, Muddy Waters at his standard gig venue, the renowned Sylvio’s Club in West Side. Muddy Waters is a name to which he has often been stylistically compared, but Willie has created his own career and song respecting traditions.

Willie Buck has been leading his own bands for over 40 years. He’s been on the scene since his arrival in Chicago as a teenager in the midst of the heyday of Chicago blues in 1953. He put out his only album in the early 80s which became a collector’s item over the years and was re-issued in 2010 as The Life I Love (Delmark 805). At that time it was decided Willie would create a new album for Delmark but it wasn’t until Rockin’ Johnny stepped forward that the project got off the ground. Cell Phone Man features 16 songs with a heavy dose of Muddy Waters Chicago Blues. Rockin’ Johnny Band is Rockin’ Johnny, Rick Kreher, guitar; Barrelhouse Chuck, piano; John Sefner, bass; Steve Bass, drums and special guest Bharath Rajakumar, harmonica.
