Some say Lowell Fulson is the second most important figure in West Coast Blues after T-Bone Walker. I feel strongly about the great T-Bone so maybe it carries some weight that I’d say Fulson is not number two, but a co-equal number one.

Was Blues and Swing Jazz singer Jimmy Rushing fat? Well, it might be impolite to say so, but Harry James did have a hit with his song about Rushing titled “Mr. Five by Five.”
