Grammy Award winning, world-renowned blues harp icon's first new release in six years. A huge event in the blues world and a treat for harmonica fans everywhere. Cotton has nearly 160,000 career scans, despite the majority of his releases pre-dating Sound-scan. Giant marks his return to Alligator, home of two mid-'80s Cotton classics and the harp super-session Harp Attack!. Rolling Stone calls Cotton, "among the greats of all time. He blazes on harp with brilliant virtuosity." He was recently feted at a 75th birthday tribute at the Lincoln Center in New York.
