Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Seventy-two-year-old Helfer found blues while an undergrad at Tulane in New Orleans, studying classical piano. Back in Chicago fate would lead him to the wife of boogie-woogie pioneer, Jimmy Yancey; he served as her accompanist until her passing in '86. From there Helfer launched his own record label, Red Beans, and embarked on world tours. (Gavin Paul)
