Willie Dixons Playlist

1 Hoochie Coochie Man

Blues Genius

In the music business, it's not only the stars that make the magic. Special songwriters, groovin' sidemen, and gifted producers propel the music behind the scenes. Willie Dixon was without doubt the ultimate Blues songwriter, sideman, and producer. Special, groovin' and gifted.

Willie Dixon attempted a career in professional boxing.

Dixon wrote many of the definitive Blues standards. Back Door Man, Bring It on Home, Hoochie Coochie Man, and I Just Want to Make Love to You. He is most associated with Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, but he also directed artists like Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson, Eddie Boyd, Bo Diddley, and Chuck Berry.

Willie Dixon was the musical soul of Chess Records.

Dixon played several instruments, but was most effective on the stand-up bass. If you've listened to the Blues, most likely Willie was on bass. After his Chess session days, he managed and toured with the Chicago Blues All-stars and the American Folk Blues Festival. With his songwriting and studio expertise, Dixon was a monster force in post-war Chicago Blues.
