The earliest known TV appearance of the man considered the greatest blues guitarist of all time.



This is from a May 1968 appearance on Ralph Gleason’s “Jazz Casual”, the same ’60s TV show from which I’ve previously featured clips of Dave Brubeck, John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins.

B. B. King on guitar and vocals, Sonny Freeman on drums, James Toney on organ, Mose Thomas on trumpet and Lee Gatling on saxophone.
