Back in April, John Alex Mason took a seat on The Couch.

Sadly, we lost Mr. Mason on October 19, 2011 to complications following an operation.

Tonight, we will rebroadcast that chat in memory of this great bluesman taken from us way too early.

Hailing from southern Colorado and he was a unique artist.

His new album "Jook Joint Thunderclap" is a world boogie collaboration of master players from Chicagoland, Holly Springs, Guinea and Colorado. On this project Mason added djembe, bolofon, fiddle, mandolin, harmonica, bass and flos to his one-man band of kick drums, electric guitars and vocals.

His shows were a celebration and the crowd became a willing participant in the performance.

John Alex and I had a great chat about his life and the things he was looking forward to doing before the tragedy.
