For Hubert (click to listen, right click and “Save As” to download)
The recent passing of the great Hubert Sumlin hit me hard. I didn’t know Hubert very well; I played two or three songs with him once and met him three or four other times over the years, but I knew him just well enough to understand what a gentle, amazing man he was. Even before I dreamed of meeting him, he was a hero of mine, and his influence on my playing and musical worldview cannot be overstated. There’s nothing to say about this song, really, other than that I had to play something for the man. My heart still hurts, you know? I hope you enjoy it.
