ERWIN HELFER & FRIENDS

Erwin Helfer, a Chicago blues and boogie woogie master, has been forging his own piano music legacy for over forty years. Erwin has the chops, the feel, and the drive of the masters but he also pushes “classic” blues piano music forward in a totally new direction. His music is graceful, spirited, and at times beautifully dissonant. With John Brumback, saxophone, and Katherine Davis, vocals.
