The legendary bluesman John Lee Hooker brought his boogie style blend of rhythm & blues to deliver two blistering performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1983.

Joined by The Coast-to-Coast Blues Band they cover an impressive set of hits from across his career including ‘Boom Boom”, “Crawlin’ King Snake” and his very first single “Boogie Chillen’”.​

Four-time Grammy® Award winner and Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award recipient John Lee Hooker will forever be hailed as a legend of the blues genre. His storied career continues its impact on modern music even today – with fans spanning generations and transcending borders. Hooker was responsible for molding the blues into a sound that was entirely his own, dispensing with 12-bar blues in favor of an intensely deep, funky groove. “John Lee Hooker sent a unique strand of DNA coursing through the gene pool of countless rockers and blues artists … both his guitar playing and, his vocals, in their chanting cadence, could reach the transcendence of devotional singing” (The Guardian)

Known to music fans around the world as the “King of the Boogie,” John Lee Hooker endures as one of the true superstars of the blues genre: the ultimate beholder of cool. His work is widely recognized for its impact on modern music –his simple, yet deeply effective songs transcend borders and languages around the globe. Each decade of Hooker’s long career brought a new generation of fans and fresh opportunities for the ever-evolving artist. He never slowed down either: As John Lee Hooker entered his 70s, he suddenly found himself in the most successful era of his career –reinvented yet again, and energized as ever, touring and recording up until his passing in 2001.
