Eric Clapton has called Sonny Landreth one of the most advanced—and underappreciated—guitarists in the world. Landreth spent his formative years in 1950s Louisiana during the golden era of zydeco, blues, jazz, and roots, and was later mentored by zydeco legend Clifton Chenier. His mesmerizing slide guitar technique—changing keys, rhythms and musical styles in a flash—has earned him the moniker “King of the Slydeco.” Landreth’s solo albums span (and often blur) blues, zydeco, folk, country, and jazz, and he’s played with John Hiatt, John Mayall, and Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band among others. With Dave Ranson bass and Brian Brignac drums.
