T-Bone Walker is born in Linden, Texas, of African and Cherokee origins and is of American nationality. His family moves quickly to the south of Dallas. There he meets Blind Lemon Jefferson who will introduce him to the blues. First tap dancer in the vaudevilles, also pianist, he quickly became a solid guitarist, singer and composer.

His style was encapsulated as early as 1942 on Mean Old World recordings, and I Got a Break with pianist Freddie Slack. You can hear some of the first blues electric guitar solos. Others, like Junior Barnard, had preceded him on this instrument in Bob Wills' western swing band, or Les Paul and Charlie Christian in the jazz field.
