Albert "Sunnyland Slim" Luandrew was an American blues pianist born in the Mississippi Delta. He later moved to Chicago to contribute to that city's post-war scene as a center for blues music. Chicago's broadcaster and writer, Studs Terkel, said Sunnyland Slim was "a living piece of our folk history, gallantly and eloquently carrying on in the old tradition." His stage name came from a song he composed about the Sunnyland train that ran between Memphis and St. Louis.
