With his 83rd birthday right around the corner, B.B. King released his latest album, One Kind Favor. It debuted at No. 11 on Billboard's list of best-selling albums and Rolling Stone called it one of the finest works of his long career. In addition to his vocals, he has an awesome back-up band for the album: Jim Keltner (John Lennon, Mick Jagger) on drums, Nathan East (Clapton) on stand-up bass and Dr. John on piano. T-Bone Burnett produced the album.
"We were trying to get back to the real roots," King said. "We tend to get away from it a little bit, do things that sound like jazz or rock-'n-roll-ish. With this we're trying to do nothing but play the roots of the blues."
