"Juke" is a harmonica instrumental recorded by then 22-year-old Chicago bluesman Little Walter Jacobs in 1952. Although Little Walter had been recording sporadically for small Chicago labels over the previous five years, and had appeared on Muddy Waters' records for the Chess label since 1950, Juke was Little Walter's first hit, and it was the most important of his career. Due to the influence of Little Walter on blues harmonica, Juke is now considered a standard.

  • nice..........................
  • Little Walter almost always played with a Chromatic harp made by Hohner which is the biggest harp they make & Little Walter made it SOUND like no one i ever heard & the best harp player I've seen play the harp was Big ( Shakey ) Walter Horton but Horton didn't use the Chromatic harp because he didn't need to because he sure had some big lungs. You can't compare harp great master harp players because they all have their own style but Horton ..............I wish Horton would've made more albums : (
