Fillmore Slim has been playing the blues all his life and has become synonymous with the "playa" lifestyle. He is one of the special lights of the blues world today combining humor, slang, street wisdom, blues idioms and solid songwriting into his special motif. The Legend Of was recorded in Oakland and it brings all the power of Slim's writing and spoken magic to the front. The song "Hey Little Brother" examines the inner city youth/handgun epidemic from many different viewpoints. The combination of rap and blues is once again explored by Fillmore and his son Frank Sticks. This album's line-up includes Frank Goldwasser and Leonard Gil (bass and lead guitar), John Haines (drums), Bobby Webb (sax), Jimmy Pugh (keyboards) and Rick Estrin (harmonica).
