#LISSEN.  Souled Out #3

Newport Jazz Festival 1956. Charles ‘Chuck’ Berry appears at the jazz festival. Chuck performed with an amplified guitar (kinda novel at the time) and backed by a pick up group of veteran jazz musicians made up from some of the various jazz bands at the fest.

Chuck actually did his now well known ‘duck walk’ right across the stage while playing. The looks on the faces of the veteran musicians playing behind ‘duck walk’ Chuck seem to say it all. “Who does this guy think he is?”. Times were a’changing. Within a few months, Chuck Berry was known world wide but hardly anybody could remember the names of any of the guys in the pick up band.
