Music: In Your Darkest Hour

The first time I heard Charlie Musselwhite was on KSDS 88.3, San Diego’s jazz radio station and one for the finest jazz & blues stations I know.

I was driving, it was late night and raining, and I was dead tired; the perfect setting for some blues. They played Musselwhite’s jumpy “Both Sides of the Fence” from his album Rough News. Charlie’s dominant harp, strong voice and rhythm captivated me. I bought the CD the next day.

This is another song from that album, performed here by Charlie and his daughter Layla.
