Leroy Airmaster always towered over most of the competition. Back in the ’70s and ’80s, when second- and third-rate blues imitators proliferated in the heartland, the Milwaukee band had the edge in musicianship and empathy for the music. Reunited last year, Leroy Airmaster recorded a pair of shows at Turner Hall for their live disc. With drummer Vodie Rhinehart and bassist Kurt Koenig keeping a steady yet elastic groove, guitarist Bill Stone and harmonica king Steve Cohen stand on a solid platform for their emotive solos. Live at Turner Hall mixes a couple of original tunes with a batch of classics by Otis Rush, Percy Mayfield and others.

Leroy Airmaster performs 9:30 p.m. June 19 at Delafield Brewhaus; 6:30 p.m. June 22 at Humboldt Park’s Chill on the Hill; and 6:30 p.m. June 24 at Grant Park.
