Sims, Frankie Lee
AIM, 2006, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: These are gutsy, down home blues, complete with stories of romance. Frankie is kin to Lightning Hopkins and for sure they share a few similarities in playing the blues. Sims was born in New Orleans and he never strayed too far from home. He performs mainly on the Gulf Coast and in Texas. He is a great storyteller and his ’rough’ guitar style has influenced many blues musicians. Listen to the words of these fourteen songs for an entertaining session.
