Charlie Musselwhite has recorded and released 33 records as a leader or co-leader including the 2013 Grammy- winner for Best Blues album

Producers note: I met Charlie nearly 20 years ago when I was managing the pianist Henry Butler who was on tour with Charlie and Elvin and several others, Front Porch Blues tour. Although I’ve been here on the peninsula for most of my life — and my parents Paul and Barbara Weiss z l were very active in the creation of this fabulous center /community — I do like to mention where appropriate that I was born on the southside. Both of my parents are from Chicago, too although my dad’s tastes ran more to Les Brown than Charlie Musselwhite. (My dad like my grandfather and briefly me, sold Chevrolet; A few years into “Earthwise Productions“ my dad suddenly remembered that he had booked Les Brown into the opening of the University of Chicago Student Union in 1948.
