    Jack Dupree was an American Blues pianist and singer who's nickname, "Champion Jack", originated from his time as a professional boxer in the 1930s. By the 1940s, he was a fully fledged recording artist and, in the late 1950s moved to Europe. He played at various British Blues clubs in the 1960s, with, among others, Eric Clapton and John Mayall. Since his death, there has been a revival for Dupree's music, particularly on the British vintage dance scene.
