About Bill "Jazz" Gillum

Bill "Jazz" Gillum was an Early Blues harmonica player best known for his work with Big Bill Broonzy. He played in a Pre-War, pre-Sonny Boy(s) Williamson style largely constructed by himself -- a high-ended, keening wail and he worked as a sideman on countless records of the era. Upon his return from WWII, his sound was out of vogue, resulting in almost no recorded material dating from the last 20 years of his life.
