Mike Bloomfield

Mentored as a youthful prodigy by some of Chicago blues’ greats, Mike Bloomfield unleashed the power of the electric guitar to stretch the boundaries of the genre through his groundbreaking solos with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. His breathtaking performance on the  title cut from the East-West album, for example, integrated the blues with world music and other influences in a breathtaking instrumental.  From a wealthy Jewish family on Chicago’s North Side, Bloomfield figured prominently on Bob Dylan’s classic Highway 61 Revisited album and was featured in Dylan's historic plugged-in performance at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.
