A remarkably illuminating exploration of a largely uncharted blues way of life, love, and loss. Helen Dance lets the lives and the music breathe naturally.--Nat Hentoff T-Bone Walker's induction into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame came as no surprise, for his influence, and his guitar expertise, had a lasting effect on the blues and the bluesmen who succeeded him.--George Benson When he died in 1975, Aaron "T-Bone'' Walker was widely regarded as the father of modern guitar blues, whose sound influenced much of today's popular music. A proficient pianist and guitarist, a talented singer of great personal magnetism, a composer of blues and shuffles, Walker was also at home with jazz and proud of his association with Louis Armstrong, Lester Young, Dizzy Gillespie and other major jazz musicians. In a book that well may become a basic cultural document, Dance, who produces concerts and records and has written for jazz magazines, has organized interviews with Walker, his family, friends and associates into a smooth-flowing narrative account of this important musical innovator, who also happened to be a wild-living, hard-drinking, compulsive gambler--Publishers Weekly Helen Oakley Dance's close professional and very intimate and relaxed personal contact with the special world of blues musicians over the years has served her well. Stormy Monday is a lively and showbiz-wise profile that may well be the standard book on T-Bone Walker for some time to come.--Albert Murray
