hippies played rock in the late 1960's. But Burton s field was actually jazz, and
he is probably responsible for a large audience of listeners today who would never
have listened to jazz under normal circumstances in their formative music-listening
years. Besides that, his original group featured one of the fastest guitar players
of the time, Coryell, who has since built a large jazz audience around himself as a
soloist. A1bums: The Time Machine, 1966; Tennessee Firebird, 1967; Dister, 1967;

Born December 17th, 1942 in Chicago
Considered to be the best blues harmonica player of his generation, Butterfield learnt
his craft in Chicago's many blues bars listening to the greats like Junior Wells and
By the mid sixties he had gone through a number of loose band line-ups before forming
the finest American blues band of the sixties, The Paul Butterfield Blues band. It was
the launch pad for many fine musicians who went on to succesful solo careers. By the
early seventies, however, Butterfield tired of trying to extend the blues, (he had
fused it with a variety of styles from jazz to raga), and returned to his Chicago
blues roots with a new band, Better Days.
While he had epitomised American music in the mid sixties, the seventies saw him
struggle for a meaningful place in the music scene.
In 1975 he took the plunge into a solo career and the life of a session vocalist and

After hanging out with other blues players like Barry Goldberg and Harvey Mandel, Paul
Butterfield decided to form a real blues band in 1965. His work can be likened in many
ways to Alexis Korner or John Mayall, providing a training ground for America's new
wave of blues players.
The band became a focal point for electric blues throughout the sixties but by the
early seventies, Butterfield was looking once more to his Chicago roots. He dissolved
the Blues band in 1972, moving on to Better Days which lasted a further three
