    That would be Louis doing Wynonie in the time-honored tradition of finding a white guy who can bring it to white audiences.
    Louis was cool, though...his music was, anyway.
    I don't know anything about the man.
    Wynonie, Roy Brown and Louis Jordan are among my MAJOR influences.
    Ever try to play it?
    Just try to capture that vibe.
    Try to even figure out what it is!

    Bluehawk, nice job of listing the earliest influences of rock and roll. It has been my understanding that the term "rock and roll" was coined by radio and TV personality, Allen Freed.

    I have an elderly friend that used to take care of and chauffeur the artists of a then well known club in Kansas City. She took care of Ray Charles, Wynonie Harris, and Roy Brown (just to mention a few) when they were just whippersnappers. She's nearing 90 y/o and was a nurse most of her life and lived in the L.A. area. She moved back to Iowa after she retired. Fascinating lady to talk to. As an aside, she had a son that was murdered. For all the tragedy and triumphs she's been through she's such a sweetheart.

    There's a few modern guys that could bring the Jump blues too. Guys like Junior Watson, Sean Costello, Hollywood Fats and Nick Curran come to my mind. Nick was one of my favorites. I've got a friend in Austin who told be that for fun Nick would use a pointy headstock Kramer and a Fender Blues Deluxe and just destroy guys with their vintage Gibsons and Fenders. That was a good reminder for me. As fun as gear is, it's really all about the hands, heart and soul.

    Here's Nick with a $200 Squier 51...



    BluesHawk, what's up with #39?

    Ran across this and just couldn't resist...the late Nick Curran doing rockabilly with Kim Lenz. Nick mixed early rock and roll, blues and punk into a pretty exciting style I think. His playing behind the beat really adds to the swagger of this tune.
