Pieces of Blues
'PIECES OF BLUES' is Bob E. Lee's first recorded documentation of his interpretation of 'the blues' as seen through his eyes. Bob E. Lee is a twenty-year veteran of the Chicago Southside blues scene. His guitar and blues-harp, give voice to the emotion of a life-lived in the shadow of the steel mills. Bob's powerful voice, along with his talent for story-telling, combined to create his own personal experience of the blues. Bob leads the 'Bob E. Lee Blues Band,' a group of talented and diverse group of veteran blues musicians who perform regularly at blues clubs and festivals, etc... throughout Chicago, it's suburb; Joliet and Northwest Indiana. Bob has opened shows for Chicago's own Lonnie Brook's and his well-established son Ronnie Baker Brooks. He has jammed with the likes of Chicago blues guitarist John Primer (of Willie Dixon/Muddy Waters bands), legendary drummer Vernon Rogers (of the late Junior Well's band), Mike Wheeler a.k.a. 'The Chicago Playboys,' and Vino Loudin to name a few popular Chicago blues musicians. He has also shared libations with the late great Hound Dog Taylor. Bob began singing at an early age during the Elvis-era singing songs like 'Hound Dog.' Bob has been singing all of his life and sites the late great Ray Charles and Muddy Waters, Luther Allison as well as modern-day musicians like Johnny Winter, Lyle Lovette and David Bromberg as major influences.
