A pioneer of both jazz and single-note blues guitar styles and one of the most prolific of all blues recording artists, Alonzo Johnson (1889-1970) had retired from music when Bluesville producer Chris Albertson coaxed him back into the studio in 1960. Johnson's sweetly ringing tenor voice and deceptively simple instrumental virtuosity had, fortunately, lost none of their cutting edge. Recorded without accompaniment in 1962, this gem was the New Orleans born master's fifth and final album for the label and the first to focus entirely on his highly personalized blues repertoire.
