Blues legend Jack Dupree and bluesrock guitar superstar TS McPhee - awesome
William Thomas "Champion Jack" Dupree (July 23, 1909 or July 4, 1910 - January 21, 1992) was an American blues and boogie-woogie pianist and singer. His nickname was derived from his early career as a boxer. Dupree was a New Orleans blues and boogie-woogie pianist, a barrelhouse "professor". His father was from the Belgian Congo and his mother was part African American and Cherokee. Dupree's playing was almost all straight blues and boogie-woogie. He was not a sophisticated musician or singer, but he had a wry and clever way with words: In later years Dupree recorded with John Mayall, Mick Taylor, Eric Clapton and The Band. Although best known as a singer and pianist in the New Orleans style, Dupree occasionally pursued more musically adventurous projects, including Dupree 'n' McPhee, a collaboration with the English guitarist Tony McPhee, recorded for Blue Horizon Records.
