Eddie Shaw has been playing the blues on tenor saxophone and harmonica for over 50 years. In his teens he played with bluesmen Little Milton and Willie Love, and by age 14 had jammed with Ike Turner's band in Greenville, Mississippi. He got a steady gig with Muddy Waters in Chicago before moving on to work with Howlin' Wolf, eventually becoming his bandleader and manager. After Howlin' Wolf's death, he took over both the band and the 1815 Club, which was their home base in Chicago. As a sideman, he recorded with Freddy King, Otis Rush and Magic Sam, before his recording career as a frontman took off in the mid-1970s. Recent discs include Too Many Highways (1999) on Delmark and Give Me Time (2005) on Wolf Records.
