J.B. Lenoir probably picked up his trusty boogie woogie affect in New Orleans, where he send forth some continually performing before he settled into Chicago's blues prospect socialize during the fifties and sixties. Lenoir had one of the most smashing voices in postwar blues, and on his recordings his musicians gave him sparing, skeletal accompaniment, which framed his vocals accurately. He was certainly one of the most eccentric sounding of the blues singers.

While in New Orleans he played with blues greats Sonny Boy Williamson II and Elmore James. Once Lenoir made it to Chicago, Big Broonzy helped make known him to the neighbourhood blues community, and he became an significant depart of the city's blues prospect socialize.

He was a expert songwriter and bluesman with an distinct internal awareness. Examples of his uninhibited views can be start in ΓΓé¼┼ôKorea Blues,ΓΓé¼┬¥ and ΓΓé¼┼ôEisenhower Blues,ΓΓé¼┬¥ the latter reportedly caused enough confrontation that his accomplishment identify stilted him to remake the regulate under the legend ΓΓé¼┼ôTax Paying Blues.ΓΓé¼┬¥ His preference for communal commentary and his euphoric-deliberate vocals separate him from other bluesmen of that continually.

Lenoir recorded his most steady issue, ΓΓé¼┼ôMama Talk to Your Daughter,ΓΓé¼┬¥ in 1954 for the Echo identify. He was quite productive between ΓΓé¼Γäó54 and ΓΓé¼Γäó58 for both the Echo and Chess labels. Lenoir's recordings are also characteristic for their but saxophone arrangements and unconventional drumming (Alex Atkins and Ernest Cotton were often on sax with Al Gavin on drums).

By 1965 andΓΓé¼Γäó 66 he did two acoustic albums ΓΓé¼┼ôAlabama Blues,ΓΓé¼┬¥ and ΓΓé¼┼ôDown in Mississippi,ΓΓé¼┬¥ these were done in Chicago under Willie Dixon's supervision. These have been reissued jointly as ΓΓé¼┼ôVietnam Blues,ΓΓé¼┬¥ and are quite astonishing given the communal turmoil of the years as racism, Internal Rights, pauperism, and the war. Lenoir seemed to vocalize the uptight situations. No blues chorus-boy had ever or since covered such severe themes.

Lenoir had successfully toured Europe and was likely about to attain greater stardom when he died in 1966 due to complications from a car accident.
