Cleveland bluesman Wallace Coleman says the 10 years he spent touring with the late blues legend Robert Jr. Lockwood were the most exciting of his life. On his new album, 'Blues in the Wind (Remembering Robert Jr. Lockwood),' Coleman returns the favor.

Singer and harp player Wallace Coleman first met Robert Lockwood Jr. in 1985. They became fast friends, with Coleman playing in the local bluesman's band for a decade.

On 'Robert Jr.,' Coleman fondly recalls how Lockwood once pulled him off a stage and told him he didn't care for harmonica players. Lockwood liked Coleman and gave him a chance, though. Coleman shows why on the album's 10 songs.

Coleman and his band rumble through 'Little Joint Way ‘Cross Town,' a song Coleman penned. They slink through 'Blues in the Wind,' another original. But whether the songs are fast or slow, Coleman's harp is always smooth. So, for that matter, are his vocals.

This CD is full of soulful, swingin' and downhome blues. Wallace is simply an artist at his peak with sweet majestical tones and lines, emanating from his soulful vocals and beautiful harmonica.
