Erwin Helfer

Erwin Helfer was introduced to piano blues as a young teenager growing up in Chicago in the early '50s, the heyday of the city's blues clubs and the fortunes of labels such as Chess Records. A native of Chicago's south side, he haunted the clubs as a boy, but he also took the time to attend school and completed college with a degree in music, which he followed by spending three years in New Orleans in the late '50s, where he played jazz. Among the musicians who influenced him most were Jimmy Yancey, Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson, and Speckled Red, and Helfer counted himself a good friend of guitarist Big Joe Williams. Helfer became a performer and teacher, touring Europe as a blues pianist and also training college students in Chicago throughout the 1970s. His style is equally adaptable to blues and jazz. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

he did not just teach College students in the 70's...he was a teacher for many regardless of age. He an Sunny Land Slim are blues legends on piano. He played with both Mama and Papa Yancey. He mixed in classical and jazz in a way that is unique and lyrical. Erwin is legend.

This man is a living treasure to all things boogie and blues. But where are his other albums?? He has many more to offer. C'mon, Pandora, his best is still out there - your audience needs to hear them!!
