Considered by many to be the world’s greatest blues piano player, Pinetop Perkins has performed with Earl Hooker, Robert Nighthawk, and Muddy Waters; but he is also considered a great star in his own right. In 2005, he received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Pinetop’s warm, charming personality is reflected in his elegant, interactive piano style. Pinetop Perkins and Bob Corritore have collaborated on numerous recording sessions and live performances over the years.
