Lucky Peterson

Child prodigy status is sometimes difficult to overcome upon reaching maturity. Not so for Lucky Peterson -- he's far bigger (in more ways than one) on the contemporary blues circuit than he was at the precocious age of six, when he scored a national R&B hit with the Willie Dixon-produced "1-2-3-4."

Little Lucky Peterson was lucky to be born into a musical family. His dad, James Peterson, owned the Governor's Inn, a popular Buffalo, New York blues nightclub that booked the biggies: Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Bill Doggett. The latter's mighty Hammond B-3 organ fascinated the four-and-a-half-year-old lad, and soon Peterson was on his way under Dixon's tutelage. "1-2-3-4" got Peterson on The Tonight Show and The Ed Sullivan Show, but he didn't rest on his laurels -- he was doubling on guitar at age eight, and at 17, he signed on as Little Milton's keyboardist for three years.

A three-year stint with Bobby Bland preceded Peterson's solo career launch, which took off when he struck up a musical relationship with Florida-based producer Bob Greenlee. Two Greenlee-produced albums for Alligator, 1989's Lucky Strikes! and the following year's Triple Play, remain a pair of his finest recorded offerings. Extensive session work behind everyone from Etta James to Kenny Neal to Otis Rush also commenced during this period.

In 1992, Peterson's first Verve label album, I'm Ready, found him boldly mixing contemporary rock and soul into his simmering blues stew. More high-energy Verve sets followed, making it clear that Peterson's career was in full swing (meanwhile, his father fashioned his own career as a bluesman with albums for Ichiban and Waldoxy and remained an active player in Florida until his death in 2010). Lucky made his debut for new label Blue Thumb with a self-titled effort released in 1999, and Double Dealin' followed in early 2001.

The new millennium found Peterson recording a number of well-received albums for various labels, including Black Midnight Sun (2003, Dreyfus), the father-and-son James and Lucky Peterson duo album If You Can't Fix It (2004, JSP), Heart of Pain (2010, JSP), You Can Always Turn Around (2010, Dreyfus), and Every Second a Fool Is Born (2011, JSP). Peterson self-produced himself for the first time with 2014's The Son of a Bluesman, which appeared on the Jazz Village imprint. ~ Bill Dahl, Rovi

Love seeing how many people found lucky through pandora. Great blues since he was just a boy.
Where have I been?? Lucky Peterson has a super sounding group.
He obvious learned from some of the greats, but reflects his great
personal sound. Hats off to Lucy Peterson from an old time blues lover.

Wow! Fantastastic R&B! Lucky is new for us!!
This is a blues sound I've been looking for!!!!
I have found him. Damn I love his music. And his wife is awesome!!
man i love this, play one man!!!! I am so in the zone!!!!
hell! I feel like I'm in a 1950s underground blues bar and I'm the only white guy there, throwing back drinks and going through three packs of smokes. This guy rocks.

Don't know how Lucky found his way onto my pschedelic 60's channel, but I love it! This kind of blues is where rock came from. All you youngsters listening to what you think is blues, come here gather 'round and learn.

Neither SRV or Lucky or Little Milton, who also recorded Tin Pan Alley, wrote the tune. It was pianist Curtis Jones who included it on his 1962 Delmark LP Lonesome Bedroom Blues.

Love this Blues version of a song I've always associated with Prince. NICE! I'd like to hear more music turnarounds like this.
