Robert Lockwood, Jr., also known as Robert Junior Lockwood, (March 27, 1915 – November 21, 2006) was an American blues guitarist who recorded for Chess Records among other Chicago labels in the 1950s and 1960s. He is best known as a longtime collaborator with Sonny Boy Williamson II, and for his work in the mid 1950s with Little Walter Jacobs.
Little Buddy Doyle
Born probably 20 march 1911 Forest City, AR, USA
Diminutive Memphis (Beale)street-singer and guitarist. He recorded eight sides there in 1939 with the young Walter Horton as the probable harmonica player.
Despite a relatively prolific recording career which yielded upwards of 40 solo sides in addition to a series of celebrated collaborations with vocalist Lucille Bogan, pianist/singer Walter Roland remains one of the blues' most elusive and mysterious figures.
Lazy Bill Lucas (May 29, 1918 - December 11, 1982) was an American blues musician, who was part of the birth of the Chicago blues scene during the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s, before taking his talents to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and becoming an important part of that city's blues history until his death.
An obscure Delta blues player from Mississippi, Willie "Poor Boy" Lofton falls loosely into the Charley Patton/Tommy Johnson blues camp. His voice was eerily similar to Johnson's, and his most striking song was a version of Johnson's "Big Road Blues," called "Dark Road Blues," which featured Lofton's staccato guitar style, which again appears to have been drawn at least partially from Johnson.
Morris Pejoe brought a Louisianna Cajun influence to 1950s Chicago Blues guitar, along with a bit of Texas. His band included the great Blues pianist Otis Spann (who later joined Muddy Water's band). He liked the use of horns in his rather raw sounding Blues band and later in his career the group sounded more like a big-band than a Chicago Blues combo.
