Albert King, Oakland, California


Bluesman Albert King (1923-1992) performing at Estuary Park, Oakland California. The guitar work of Albert King lives on in the playing of literally thousands of blues, rock, and jazz guitarists. Picking with his bare fingers and the volume turned WAY up, Albert created perhaps the most cutting and immediately identifiable electric blues guitar style ever. Absolutely one of the most powerful, articulate, and soulful string benders ever. (subtext borrowed from John Morgan)
