New Orleans musician George Porter, Jr.’s recent posts on a tribute to Earl King prompted this post. I saw King perform twice, once around 1990 at 8×10 and on July 22, 2000, at Artscape, both in Baltimore. He was a great musician with a lengthy career that lasted around 50 years. He is probably best known for “Come On” and Trick Bag”. He wrote “Big Chief” which was recorded by Professor Longhair.
