B. B. King plays tribute to his influences

In this video from 1972 B. B. King speaks and plays tribute to many of his guitar heroes; Blind Lemon Jefferson‘s flaminco-esque solo work, the clean touch of Lonnie Johnson, the dominant 9th chords of T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian‘s diminished chords, and Django Reinhardt‘s clarity.

Best wishes to the king.
