David Dee was born in the belly of the blues, Mississippi, but moved from there to East St. Louis when he was an infant. Some things, however, stick with you.

When he turned 16, Dee moved to Chicago where the blues are ubiquitous. After serving in the military, he moved back to East St. Louis, where he formed a band and began to play the music he seems born to play. A multi-instrumentalist, playing keyboards, saxoph writing essay one and bass, he finally settled on guitar, which he plays like B.B. King, one heartbreaking note at a time.

For this Live at KDHX session, Dee plays his blues standard, "Goin Fishin," a song that seems to be more about sex than fishing. For "Work This Dream Overtime," Dee slows things down and the sound of the Beale Street Blues Boy overflows, reminiscent of "The Thrill is Gone." For "Workin Blues Man," Dee brings in horns and the sound moves from the delta to the city.

No doubt about it, David Dee's got the blues.
