American blues guitarist T-Bone Walker, born Aaron Thibeaux Walker, in Linden, Texas first began performing during his teen years playing guitar on the streets of Dallas.

The legendary Blind Lemon Jefferson was a family friend from whom the young musician received his early inspiration to advance and become a blues guitar innovator in his own right.

Walker made his recording debut on Columbia Records, billed as Oak Cliff T-Bone Walker, in 1929 releasing the single "Wichita Falls Blues"/"Trinity River Blues.

By his second album release in 1942 Walker's music had matured greatly from his earlier endeavors his newly developed distinctive sound upon the release of his first single "Mean Old World", on the Capitol Records label.

The song for which he has become best known "Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just as Bad)" was a big hit of 1947.
