I’m going to wrap up the playlist’s “giants week” today with a dose of some blues.

To be honest, there’ve been way too many great blues musicians to single out as being the greatest.  That goes back to the days of the “Father of the Blues,” W.C. Handy.

Like Louis Armstrong with jazz, though, there has been one blues artist who has served as an ambassador to the world when it comes to the blues for a lot of years, one who’s influenced blues musicians who’d come after him with his style on the blues guitar.

That guitar has a name:  “Lucille.”  It’s played by the king:  B.B. King.
