Blind Lemon Jefferson

Featuring “Lemon’s Amazing Feet”

Recorded by Blind Lemon Jefferson (guitar & vocals) in Chicago during June 1927.

Lemon’s amazing feet take center stage for this ragtime dance guitar piece.

The guitarist’s feet tap out intricate poly rhythms in counterpoint to the pulsating sound of his instrument.

This was the type of up-tempo syncopated number that Jefferson would commonly play for house parties and dances.
