Pinetop Perkins was a three time Grammy Award winner and the dean of blues piano players when he passed away last year, just four months shy of his 98th birthday. Blind Pig is proud to announce the release of "Heaven", an astounding set of solo and small group pieces Perkins recorded in 1986. This is Pine at the peak of his powers, in a delightfully intimate studio setting. Highlights include the masterly solo "Pinetop's Blues" and his beautiful reading of the jazz standard "Since I Fell For You", featuring Otis Clay on vocals.
In memory of the late Pinetop Perkins, we urge you to consider supporting the Pinetop Perkins Foundation (www.pinetopfoundation.org).
