'Low Society Blues' - Lowell Fulson

Lowell Fulson was a highly influential bluesman, who was widely known for being a major force in West Coast style blues, but also for writing several standards such as '3 O'Clock Blues' and 'Reconsider Baby'. He died in 1999.

In 1949, he released this instrumental called 'Low Society Blues', which clearly shows the style and influences of jazz and jump blues. It features Ray Charles' sax player Stanley Turrentine.
