Les CHALIMONS & Friends Feat John Primer & Detroit Jr. - Chicago, New York Blues Session 2003
The behind the scenes creation of this board has already said it all Leszek Chalimoniuk originator in the interview, which appears in this issue of TB. I must admit that knowing about these efforts Leszek eagerly waiting for this CD - what to say about it - outstanding. None of the Polish musicians so far failed to gather in the studio musicians such weight and leave the studio with such recordings.
A set of musicians on this CD is a set - the dream of John Primer, Detroit Junior, Haguy King Biscuit Miller.
Les Chalimon (Leszek Chalimoniuk) started playing the blues in his native Poland. He played extensively across Europe and recorded with The John Porter Band. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1980 where he has played with just about everyone in the New York and Chicago blues scene.
Let me tell you, man, what an unforgettable experience! laing down these tracks with some of the legendary Chicago bluesmen John Primer, Detroit Junior, David 'Buscuit' Miller, bass player for Lonnie brooks Band and talented young guitarist Haguy F. King of the Willie Kent Band.
I love the blues, to me this musical form is the purest reflection of the soul, exemplified by such artists as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Junior Wells, Otis Rush, Buddy Guy ... and so many others.
