Jimmy Rogers Photo Page

Jimmy Rogers was one of greatest of Chicago bluesmen. He was a part of the groundbreaking Muddy Waters Blues Band that also included Little Walter. This band defined the two guitar / harmonica sound that would later become known as the classic 1950s Chicago Blues. Jimmy’s interactive guitar lines set up the perfect counterpoint to Muddy Waters’ slide playing and Little Walter’s tough harmonica licks. Jimmy Rogers also possessed what can be called the sweetest voice of Chicago Blues and that voice earned him a long list of classic hits that to this day are covered by virtually every blues band. Of all the people that Bob has played with over the years it is his association with Jimmy that Bob is proudest of. Bob purchased the Chicago Bound album as a teenager, and went to bed at night dreaming of it’s glorious sounds. Bob would go on to gig and record with Jimmy which as a harmonica player is as good as it gets. Jimmy passed on December 19th, 1997. Here are some photos of this all around great man.
