Song of the Day – “Give Me the Flowers While I’m Living” – Champion Jack Dupree

Champion Jack Dupree was a blues pianist that made his greatest recorded impression during the early 1950s – like this number. He was brought up in the New Orleans’ Colored Waifs’ Home for Boys, just like Louis Armstrong (though he came along a few years after Satchmo had left for Chicago).
