Sunnyland Slim - Sad And Lonesome
This set, titled Sad And Lonesome¸ originally issued on Jewel label in 1972, demonstrates usual high class piano playing by the master but more accent is made on Sunnyland Slim’s singing – powerful, deep down, and overwhelming. Already an acclaimed Blues piano player by the time of recording this set, Mr. Slim focuses on band work getting helping hand and inducing soloing and leading by Big Walter Horton on harmonica and Eddie Shaw on saxophone.
