I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Leon "Mr.Blues"Estelle

Born January 10, 1929, Leon Estelle was given The Mr.Blues of Kansas City Award by The Mayor of Kansas City! In 1958 Leon was Awarded The Best Blues Guitarist in The 5 State area.After spending a few years in Chicago hanging out with musicians such as Elmore James and others he returned to Kansas City.And it seemed like people came out of the woodwork to pick up on what he was laying down.This is a great example of some of the people that would want to see what Leon and his friends/family were up to.K.C.Kelsey and D.C.Belamy and others stop in. Glenn Patrik traveled from California to lay down some guitar work.Other musicians I recognize would be Duck Warner-trumpet,Chris Baker -sax Henry Hart -harp,Jessie "Spoon" Wilson percussion,Steve Shoemaker -trombone to name a few.One thing I would like to mention,Leon adopted 2 young guitar players and I'm proud to say I adopted him as my second Dad as well!The other is Glenn Patrik who he called Mr.Blues Jr.which he titled one of his albums so keep an eye out for my Mr. Blues III that I plan to record in the near future.And as Leon would say at the end of a phone conversation"in a minute"!
