Clapton was inspired by Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, and the three Kings-Freddie, . In the mid 1950s, King was under the spell of T-Bone Walker, who blended jazz, R&B, and jump blues into a refined, modern hybrid. Blues lick 1, a hip turnaround lick, shows the kind of jazzy lines that were part of King’s Walker-inspired vocabulary at the time. Recorded in 1964, the album captures King holding court at Chicago’s Regal Theater, backed by a tight, six-man ensemble.
