Let's open this 20th opus of our "Chicago/ The Blues Yesterday" series with Jo Jo Williams, certainly the most well known artist of this comp. Born in Coahoma on 7th October 1923, Joseph Eginger Williams is the son of a railroad employee. At an early age, he has met Son House and Willie Brown, lived as a teenager in Memphis where, under the influence of the local Beale Street acts, he learned to play the guitar around 1942 and left to Chicago, well determined to make a living out of his music. He formed his own band, The Blues Rockers with which he recorded a handful of singles under his own name, was a staunch member of the Muddy Waters Junior Band, toured the West Coast with Little Walter... During the 1960's Jo Jo went to live to Minneapolis where alongside Lazy Bill Lucas and Mojo Buford he would be a revered figure of the local blues scene. Jo Jo died in Minneapolis 16 June 2010.

Several groups named themselves Chicago All Stars. This one here is the temporary aggregation at the end of the 1940's of Chicago blues and Jazz veterans, namely trumpet player Johnny Morton, saxophonists Oett "Sax" Mallard and Sugarman Penigar as well as the ubiquitous drummer and bandleader Armand "Jump" Jackson.

Clara Morris (c. 1920-2007) is a first rate singer with a strong rural feel who, unfortunately, leaves only one striking 1941 session backed by Lonnie Johnson and Blind John Davis. She will record another session a couple of months later, this time with Big Bill Broonzy, that never was issued. Like many, her career has been cut short by the war and to our knowledge she never recorded again. She married to a Mr Proctor and died at Lake Forest, Illinois.

At last, powerful singer Frank Butler (not to be confused with the jazz drummer of the same name) has been present on the Chicago blues scene during the years 1955-70, recording a handful of 45s for small local labels like Chief, Space Age or Great Scott, the last tracks in a more Soul vein. I unfortunately don't know anything more about his whereabouts and every piece of information would be most welcome. ---Gérard Herzhaft, jukegh.blogspot.com
