Lynwood Slim followed the well-trodden path of many of the bluesmen of his generation: early interest in another instrument (in his case, trumpet), before having his head spun around by the sounds of Little Walter, Jimmy Reed, and other Chicago-based blues legends while in his early teens. His long and winding blues road has included lengthy stays in Minneapolis and Chicago, where he soaked up the true blues sounds and established a name for himself as a double threat on both vocals and harmonica.

First-hand experience and apprenticeship under veteran blues masters, such as multi-instrumentalist Leonard “Baby Doo” Caston and harmonica giant Big Walter Horton, served Slim well as he mastered the subtleties of tone and phrasing, and developed his own distinctive voice in the blues.

Slim’s mastery of blues harmonica – both the “little harp” and the more difficult chromatic – is second to none. He is also one of the finest blues vocalists of his generation. Spanning well over two decades and dozens of releases, Slim’s recording career as a band leader and featured front man include more ‘guest appearances’ on the releases of others than can easily be tallied. Couple his many years of performing and recording experience with a life that’s seen more ups and downs and ins and outs than the next three bluesmen of his generation combined, and you’ve got one of the most complete and appealing bluesmen in the business today: Lynwood Slim.

“Last Call” is Lynwood Slim’s fifth release and his finest to date! The album exhibits Slim’s knack for writing strong and catchy original lyrics and his deep love of swinging jazz. Slim is a widely respected and in-demand musician that has been a featured artist on recordings by Junior Watson, Kid Ramos, Dave Specter, R.L. Burnside, Nick Moss & the Flip Tops, Alex Schultz and more…

“Lynwood Slim’s kinetically charged harmonica playing…proved that he learned his trade well, studying under Walter Horton and Charlie Musselwhite, touring with James Cotton, Roy Buchanan, and Bo Diddley… he’s got an awful lot of rhythm, soul, and personality.” – Bluesreviews.com

“…Lynwood sparkles…” – Bad Dog Blues

“Lynwood Slim embodies the best of the “West Coast” blues sound; at turns, gritty and smooth, and swinging like a gate.”

“Powerhouse vocals & dynamic blues harp, Lynwood is the complete package.”
