Larry Taylor: Chicago West Side Blues Heritage
Larry Hill Taylor, legendary blues singer and drummer, is the oldest in the musical family of the late singer Vera Hill Taylor and master guitarist Eddie “Playboy” Taylor—VeeJay recording artist, Jimmy Reed's music partner, who powered Chicago blues with the boogie and "lump."
Today Larry’s a legend in his own right. He faithfully carries his Mississippi-born parents' traditions. With his band, the Soul Blues Healers, he brings the rhythm and spirits of his West Side Chicago neighborhood--from Howlin' Wolf to James Brown. The music brings people together.
