    BB King By The Hudson

    About two weeks ago, I saw BB King live performing at the Hudson River Music Festival. While I have been listening to BB King's records for years, this was my first time seeing the great blues master live.  Since he's 87 years old, I figured I'd better stop my procrastinating...

    A Big Bad Moma

    Etta James can tear up a song. She has a rear combination of power and grace in her singing.  I became aware of her because of the Hail Hail Rock n Roll movie.  Ever time I hear her doing this number, I've got to stop and listen.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhrO-aX7AA4...

    Muddy Waters Invented Electricity

    Muddy Waters was the key transitional figure from the old single guitar country blues into the urban Chicago blues. Fortunately we have the early Library of Congress recordings by Alan Lomax to be able to hear Muddy playing down home before he had a record contract.  It was just...

    Blues Lady

    Women were practitioners of the blues from the beginning. Their story has largely been ignored and wiped from history for the myth of the Lonely black man traveling the back roads of the deep South. This may be due to the fact that this romantic image was seized upon by the young...

    I've Got The Blues For You

    It was groups like the Stone, Led Zepp, and Eric Clapton who guided me into the blues. It sad that Americans have to find out about this music from the British.  I took me a while to get into Robert Johnson.   I wasn't ready for a guy, alone just playing an acoustic guitar...

    When I First Met The Blues ....

    At it's heart, blues music seeps into secular music....everyday music that follows the same chord structures and tempos..... Funny that it's been around for around 100 years now but feels as familiar as an old shoe, an old friend, a favourite meal.. Blues music hit me subtly...

    New Kids On The Block

    There are a couple new Blues players who are carrying on the tradition. Derek Trucks and Joe Bossamassa.  Trucks, in my opinion is the better tradition player.  Now that Bossamassa has teamed up with Beth Hart, they are the new Ike and Tina.  Oh did I mention Gary Clark Jr...

    Alexis Korner With Steve Marriott

    We have two things to thank Alexis Korner for. He was one of the leaders of the early London blues scene, and he gave a young singer named Mick Jagger his first break by letting him sing a few numbers with his band.  On occasion he would reluctantly tolerate a guitar player...
