People have a tendency to overuse the word "eclectic", these days, because it's a buzz word that makes them look more sophisticated than they really are. This episode of the Juke Joint, however, is a genuinely eclectic set of tunes, styles and artists. You'll hear from the star of TV's "House", Hugh Laurie, teaming up with New Orleans' legendary Irma Thomas. Also from New Orleans, Peter Novelli does Slim Harpo's "Baby, Scratch My Back" with guests Dr. John and Raful Neal. Arnold McCuller channels Jackie Wilson. You'll find a rare recording of Taj Mahal, John Lee Hooker, and Miles Davis collaborating for a truly unique performance, Baton Rouge Bluesmen Lazy Lester and Larry Garner, and recordings from Tiny Bradshaw, Little Millet & His Creoles, and songs from two different Blues giants that went by the name "Son" - Son House and Son Seals, just to name a few. Summer just keeps getting hotter, but this special "Blue Sun" edition of the Juke Joint will set the house on fire!
