Walter «Wolfman» Washington

Wed, 30. Oct 1991, 7 PM | Blues-Summit
Festsaal, Mustermesse Basel

A whole lotta blues in Basel: The Blues Brothers Band are world-famous thanks to their film and were festival highlights everywhere with Steve Cropper and Duck Dunn. Klaus Doldinger’s Passport and Johnny Copeland had already generated excitement at the Jazzopen Stuttgart. They skilfully combined jazz and jazz-rock and with star guest Johnny Copeland, also the blues. Joining them in Basel was shooting star Walter «Wolfman» Washington with his band. His reputation as having the voice of Ray Charles and the guitar skills of Robert Cray was completely justified.
