    Little Walter, born Marion Walter Jacobs (May 1, 1930 – February 15, 1968), was an American blues harmonica player whose revolutionary approach to his instrument has earned him comparisons to Charlie Parker and Jimi Hendrix[1] for innovation and impact on succeeding generations. His virtuosity and musical innovations fundamentally altered many listeners' expectations of what was possible on blues harmonica.[2] Little Walter's body of work earned him a spot in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008[3][4] making him the only artist ever to be inducted specifically for his work as a harmonica player.

    I love Little Walter.

    I also love how in that last vid it looks there's a Jewish male, a 'tall israeli running this rap-sh_t', word to Mos Def :D

    One,
