Little Joe Blue (September 23, 1934 — April 22, 1990) was an American blues singer, and guitarist. Born Joseph Valery, Jr. in Vicksburg, Mississippi, his music were heavily influenced by the work of Louis Jordan, Joe Liggins, and B. B. King. He played at the San Francisco Blues Festival in 1974, made later trips to Europe in 1982, and appeared at the Chicago Blues Festival in 1986. He did not turn to music as a profession until the late 1950s, when he was well into his 20s, forming his band the Midnighters in Detroit, Michigan at the end of the decade.
