west coast blues/RnB ~ 1965

Pianist, vocalist, songwriter, Jimmy McCracklin started recording around 1945, releasing about 75 singles from the early 50s to about 1970.
I like the fact that his records/recordings are elite in the sense that they crisscross musically from R&B to Blues to Soul so easily, but still remain pure in their sound.

At 90, he is now primarily a blues performer and is still recording and performing.
