Joe Louis Walker – Blues Center Interview #2

Joe Louis Walker sits down with Ric Stewart at 2017 Jazz Fest. The interview has been remastered with footage from his 2017 King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, AR. Joe inspired the name Save The Blues Foundation when he instructed Ric to Save the blues in 2003 while filming a tv show pilot for Raw Music. Topics discussed include pursuing one’s own style, advice from Willie Dixon and working with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Nick Lowe. He praises the minimalism of Muddy Waters and Albert King. He also shares his love for Eric Burdon and War and The Rolling Stones.

This video made possible in part by a Community Partnership grant from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
