The Blues Foundation presented its inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award Tuesday at the House of Blues, but not to a guitar picker from the Mississippi Delta or a belter from the South Side of Chicago. Instead, the award went to--as record executive Al Bell said in his introduction of honoree Jerry Wexler--"a white Jewish boy from the Bronx." No one in the audience, from industry titans to blues aficionados, argued the choice.
