Aron Burton – Good Blues To You
Delmark DE 727 (1999)
Aron has been one of the top bass players of Chicago blues since Freddy King gave him his first bass in the late ’50s. He did long stretches with Junior Wells and Fenton Robinson until one fateful evening in 1978 when Albert Collins heard his band. Collins hired them to play on his classic album Ice Pickin’ and took them on tour, calling them the Icebreakers. Aron later went back out on his own and has had good success as leader in Chicago and abroad, and for this album, Aron’s fellow Icebreaker and brother, Larry Burton is back on board– Good Blues To You!
