Album Review

The son of blues guitarist and singer James Peterson, Lucky Peterson was born to the blues. He was a child prodigy Hammond B-3 organ player and, mentored by one of his father's friends, the great songwriter, bassist, arranger, and producer Willie Dixon, Peterson was still only five when he scored an R&B hit with the Dixon-produced "1-2-3-4," the novelty of it all landing him appearances on The Tonight Show, The Ed Sullivan Show, and others, and his debut album appeared in 1969. But then Peterson discovered the electric guitar, and by the time his Bob Greenlee-produced Lucky Strikes! album appeared in 1989, he was a triple-threat multi-instrumentalist who managed to fuse R&B, jazz, gospel, funk, and rock with the blues. This set, released in 2011 by JSP Records, is a fine example of Peterson's joyous fusion approach to the blues, and features plenty of his beautiful and emotionally searing guitar leads, as well as some pretty good piano and organ, too.

So many other similar stories did not end well, and most do not have this stake in the ground later in their careers.

And BTW, "prince of the blues" can be taken many ways, not the least of which is the unbelievable musicianship that Lucky and the "artist-formerly-known-as" share!

Child prodigy status is sometimes difficult to overcome upon reaching maturity. Not so for Lucky Peterson; he grew bigger (in more ways than one) on the contemporary blues circuit than he was at the precocious age of six, when he scored a national R&B hit with the Willie Dixon-produced "1-2-3-4." Little Lucky Peterson was lucky to be born into a musical family. His dad, James Peterson, owned the Governor's Inn, a popular Buffalo, New York nightclub that booked the big names of the blues: Jimmy Reed,...
