Categories: ,


BB King’s passing left behind an indelible legacy and a hollow spot that will never be filled in the hearts of music lovers everywhere. He did, however, also leave behind The BB King Blues Band, an amazing musical unit that played behind Mr. King for decades. The band is still going strong and has a new release called The Soul of the King. The record is a royal journey through BB’s style and influences and features all-stars including Taj Mahal, Joe Louis Walker, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Mary Griffin, Kenny Neal, and Michael Lee respectfully filling King’s spot in front of the band.

Together, this crew puts down that amazing uptown blues sound BB King was always known for and masterfully applies it to songs new and old. The band always opened shows for King and this gave it an identity and some recognition of its own, which is why the decision to carry on with this release makes perfect sense. The Soul of the King is a superb batch of music from start to finish and gives us all another chance to bask in the glory of King’s catalogue and the unmatchable way he performed it for so long.
