No man has ever looked happier singing and playing the blues than B.B. King, or given audiences such joy with songs riddled with such pain. The 87-year-old guitarist and singer adores being onstage, and has released more live albums than he has children. (Almost.) His most recent studio effort, however, is 2008's T. Bone Burnett-produced One Kind Favor, an acoustic-shaded late-career peak that doesn't blanch at confronting his mortality. King has retained strong ties to Houston since the Duke/Peacock days, and we may yet see him again this year, because he's already signed on for three weeks of Peter Frampton's "Guitar Circus" summer tour.
