An influential blues pianist, singer, and composer with roots in the Mississippi Delta, Albert “Sunnyland Slim” Luandrew was a beloved patriarch of the postwar Chicago blues scene, performing and recording with nearly every important artist of the period. The first of 20 albums, Slim’s Shout (1961) is one of his finest, with definitive versions of “Shake It” and “The Devil Is A Busy Man.” Praised as one of America’s great traditional artists, the pianist, born in Vance, Miss., was awarded a City of Chicago Medal of Merit and a National Heritage Fellowship.
