    3:19

    Paul Butterfield Walter Horton
    Walter Horton, better known as Big Walter Horton or Walter Shakey Horton, (April 6, 1918 – December 8, 1981[1])[2] was an American blues harmonica player. A quiet, unassuming and essentially shy man, Horton is remembered as one of the premier harmonica players in the history of blues.[1] Willie Dixon once called Horton the best harmonica player I ever heard.[1] Born Walter Horton in Horn Lake, Mississippi, he was playing a harmonica by the time he was five years old.[1] In his early teens, he lived in Memphis, Tennessee and claimed that his earliest recordings were done there in the late 1920s with the Memphis Jug Band,[1] although there is no documentation of it, and some blues researchers have stated that this story was most likely fabricated by Horton. (He also claimed to have taught some harmonica to Little Walter and the original Sonny Boy Williamson, although these claims are unsubstantiated, and in the case of the older Williamson, somewhat suspect).
    Paul Vaughn Butterfield (December 17, 1942 – May 4, 1987) was an American blues singer and harmonica player. After early training as a classical flautist, Butterfield developed an interest in blues harmonica. He explored the blues scene in his native Chicago, where he was able to meet Muddy Waters and other blues greats who provided encouragement and a chance to join in the jam sessions. Soon, Butterfield began performing with fellow blues enthusiasts Nick Gravenites and Elvin Bishop.
    In 1963, he formed the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, who recorded several successful albums and were a popular fixture on the late-1960s concert and festival circuit, with performances at the Fillmores, Monterey Pop Festival, and Woodstock. They became known for combining electric Chicago blues with a rock urgency as well as their pioneering jazz fusion performances and recordings. After the breakup of the group in 1971, Butterfield continued to tour and record in a variety of settings, including with Paul Butterfield's Better Days, his mentor Muddy Waters, and members of the roots-rock group the Band.

    While still recording and performing, but in poor health, Butterfield died in 1987 at age 44. Music critics have acknowledged his development of an original approach that places him among the best-known blues harp players. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, and again in 2013, and he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. Both panels noted his harmonica skills as well as his contributions to bringing blues-style music to a younger and broader audience.

    Paul Butterfield (1942 - 1987) was an American blues vocalist and harmonica player who gained international recognition in part as one of the acts performing at the original Woodstock Festival.His band played in the morning hours of Monday, the 18th. The starting time is supposed to be 6.00 am.By the time of Woodstock the Paul Butterfield Blues Band has abandoned its roots of Chicago Blues. The horn section adds a big band touch to the music which reminds of Blood, Sweat & Tears at times. Only the slow number Driftin' and Driftin' shows the virtue of Paul Butterfield's harmonica playing.

This was sent during their third go 'round for entry, and was successful. Paul and his band were inducted in the R&RHOF in 2015. Filmed, produced and edited by Thom Pollard of Eyes Open Productions. This cut is in no way representative of the documentary on the life of Paul and is meant as an historical document of the life of a master musician and band leader.

  • Levon Helm: A Lesson from Paul Butterfield

    4:37

    In May of 1998 I interviewed Levon and his band and created a short documentary on the making of their tenth album Jubilation. After the interview with Levon, Mr. Helm, knowing I loved playing the harp, offered to teach me something he'd been taught by Paul Butterfield. Yes!

    My dear friend and collaborator on the shoot, Gil Ross, had the presence of mind to push the record button on my camera and capture this in between moment. It's Levon the legend mentoring an amateur musician --- giving the gift -- direct from Paul to Levon - to me. And now to you!

    Thanks to our production team, Gil Ross, Tom Leavens and Kevin Devick. And again, eternal thanks to The Band for their gracious acceptance of our film making efforts. It will always be one of my fondest shoots.

    In remembrance and celebration of Mr. Levon Helm we share this humble out-take. A music lesson from Levon.
