This is one of BB King's best ever guitar solos, in my opinion. A live performance of Nobody Loves Me But My Mother from a concert in Sweden, 1986. As always, BB King makes the guitar sing and weep with his incredible touch, tone, feel and dynamics. Enjoy! #BBKing #Guitar #Solo

B.B.King was a regular guest at the North Sea Jazz Festival in the Netherlands. This outstanding almost 2 hour long concert with his Blues Band was recorded live on 10th July 1987. Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer, electric guitarist, songwriter, and record producer. King introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending and shimmering vibrato that influenced many later electric blues guitarists like Eric Clapton and Keith Richards. King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and is considered one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname "The King of the Blues". This recording was made by AVRO Television in the Congresgebouw, the Hague, The Netherlands on 10 July 1987. It features Leon Warren on guitar. Watch more World of Jazz videos ► 🤍 Join us.

🤍 B.B. King Live In Africa '74 is a rare - extremely rare - intimate view of B.B. King in concert. At age 49, having "crossed over" to wide popularity with his show at the Fillmore West in 1968 and secured his fame with the 1970 hit "The Thrill Is Gone," B.B. stands onstage before Muhammad Ali and a crowd of 80,000 on the continent his ancestors left in chains and gives one of the most thrilling performances of his life. "The King of the Blues" (B.B.), "Soul Brother #1" (James Brown) and other African-American artists on the bill reveled in the return to their cultural motherland for a gala affair that was attended by fans and journalists from all over the world. The backstory around this perfonnance is rich. Behind B.B. is a large orchestra, made up of core members ofB.B.'s touring band - pianist Ron Levy, drummer Sonny Freeman and saxophonist Bobby Forte - plus studio musicians recruited (mostly) from New York, including renowned session guitarist Larry Carlton. Directed by Hampton Reese, B.B.'s longtime friend and musical tutor (you'll see him in his plaid sport coat conducting the band), this collection of musicians achieved their amazing performance after a single rehearsal in Kinshasa. Hampton wrote the charts for all the songs in the set, and every musician was playing from those charts. Of the musicians who played that concert from B.B.'s 1974 touring band, only Ron Levy is still living. Here are some of his recollections of the unforgettable trip to Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) and their historic performance there: To perform in Africa - the land of his ancestors, at this stadium event before 80,000 - plus crazed, hot, sweaty, dancing and bouncing heads and soulfully pained hearts must have had a very special personal significance for B.B., as it did for us all. We all realized this was not just another gig. It was history, good history. We were all very proud to be a part of it. As far as the set went, we performed 8.B.'s most famous hits. I have to say, this was probably the first lime this crowd ever heard - or heard of - B.B. King. but as usual he left them wanting more, as well as an indelible memory of his sincere personal passion and deep-felt blues. He definitely connected with them like the beloved king he is. If you're a B.B. King fan, you are in for a rare treat with B.B, King Live in Africa '74. If this is your introduction to the King of the Blues, you'll understand why he is so loved the world over. -Charles Sawyer Charles Sawyer is the author of the first biography of B.B. King.
