Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Little Walter Jacobs receives a sparkling tribute on this live recording that brings together five of the blues scene’s greatest harmonica players: Charlie Musselwhite, Billy Boy Arnold, Mark Hummel, James Harman and Sugar Ray Norcia.

Little Walter’s influence on the Chicago blues scene in the ‘fifties and ‘sixties is recognised by Keith Richards, who calls him "one of the best singers of the blues and a blues harp player par excellence."

Musselwhite and Arnold both knew and played with Little Walter. Producer Mark Hummel has toured and recorded with Lowell Fulson, Eddie Taylor, Charles Brown, Brownie McGhee, Jimmy Rogers and many others. James Harman has been a mainstay on the scene for forty years, having played with everyone from Canned Heat to ZZ Top. Sugar Ray Norcia is best known for his lengthy tenure with the acclaimed Roomful of Blues and with the Bluetones - a band he started thirty years ago with guitarist Ronnie Earl.

On Remembering Little Walter, each artist performs two tracks from Little Walter’s discography, then they collaborate on a balls-out, jamming finale of Walter’s signature tune, "My Babe."
