Really the Blues by Mez Mezzrow

This is the story of a white boy who fell in love with black culture, learning the clarinet in the clubs frequented by Al Capone, accompanying Bessie Smith in her heyday - a white Jew exploring the world of jazz. It is a searching autobiography, written in the 1940s but with the directness and power of today's most streetwise language.

At some point-in-time, they all go back. Back to the roots. Back to the Blues. Also, Oliver Mally is no exception, although he has never really moved far from the Blues. The Blues mean stories, atmosphere, "the true facts of life", as Willie Dixon once put it. These true facts have always manifested themselves in the songs of the "Sir". The ideal-typical composition here is "(She Was) Brave Enough".

A very little known group from Venice, but their only album, released in a very limited pressing, is among the rarest of the Italian 70's rock. Not really a progressive rock album, this is surely a progressive work, starting from its odd jute sack cover. It was also one of the first (or possibly the first) LP's by an Italian blues band, as the blues was considered in Italy as a music only reserved to foreign musicians during the 60's. The band's leader, guitarist Claes Cornelius, was in fact a foreigner, from Denmark, that had moved to Italy in the mid-60's and soon played an important role in the beat era and afterwards. He had founded with sound engineer Ermanno Velludo the Suono Recording Studio…

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A standout set from Shorty – tightly arranged numbers performed by a quartet that includes Jimmy Giuffre, Pete Jolly, Curtis Counce, and Shelly Manne – all working with Shorty in perfect west coast form! Despite the length of the tunes, the overall feel is similar to Rogers' excellent Wherever The Five Winds Blow album for RCA – and makes the record a great set, done without any gimmicks or tricks – and enough of the modern touch still left from Rogers' first few years on record. Titles include "Martians Go Home", "Trickleydidlier", "Not Really The Blues", and "Michele's Meditation".

Aaron “Professor Louie” Hurwitz first came to prominence for his production and keyboard work with The Band (post Robbie Robertson) and separately with Rick Danko’s bands. In fact, it was Danko that dubbed him “Professor Louie,” a name that stuck immediately and has carried Louie and his band, The Crowmatix, through 13 studio albums.

The mid-to-late Sixties was a strange and difficult time for many Blues men - most were without contracts, forgotten and under-appreciated. Then the Blues boom happened (particularly in the UK) and many had their careers kick-started all over again. Freddie King was no exception. His last album had been for Federal in 1964, but with a new lease of life on the mighty Atlantic label, he produced two much revered LPs in rapid succession. The first was "Freddie King Is A Blues Master" released in 1969 on SD 9004 - and then this peach - "My Feeling For The Blues" on Cotillion SD 9016 released in early 1970.

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Overdrive Live! from The Blues Overdrive and it's really solid. Recorded at one of Denmark's biggest and most prestigious festivals, Smukfest, TBD opens with Death On The Highway with it's laid back JJ Cale or Eric Clapton style country blues rocker feel. Martin Olsen fronts the band on lead vocal and guitar with Brother Birck on bass, Louisian Boltner on drums and Andreas Andersen on lead guitar. On shuffle track, Three Time Lover, the band gets a cool groove going with extended soloing by Andersen. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Ball & Chain (not Big Mama's) but with a strong San Francisco sound, lush ringing chords and interesting guitar work by Andersen under Olsen's vocals. Very nice.
