Really the Blues by Mez Mezzrow
English | 13 Dec. 1993 | ISBN: 0006546919 | 416 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

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.

Nina Simone Sings the Blues, issued in 1967, was her RCA label debut, and was a brave departure from the material she had been recording for Phillips. Indeed, her final album for that label, High Priestess of Soul, featured the singer, pianist, and songwriter fronting a virtual orchestra. Here, Simone is backed by a pair of guitarists (Eric Gale and Rudy Stevenson), bassist (Bob Bushnell), drummer (Bernard "Pretty" Purdie), organist (Ernie Hayes), and harmonica player who doubled on saxophone (Buddy Lucas). Simone handled the piano chores. The song selection is key here. Because for all intents and purposes this is perhaps the rawest record Simone ever cut. It opens with the sultry, nocturnal, slow-burning original "Do I Move You," which doesn't beg the question but demands an answer: "Do I move you?/Are you willin'?/Do I groove you?/Is it thrillin'?/Do I soothe you?/Tell the truth now?/Do I move you?/Are you loose now?/The answer better be yeah…It pleases me…." As the guitarists slip and slide around her husky vocal, a harmonica wails in the space between, and Simone's piano is the authority, hard and purposely slow.

My good friend Harpdog Brown has a new CD out. He’s got a smokin’ band playing and he’s singing the real deal, old school blues just like you want to hear it. It’s easy to tell from listening that Harpdog knows what he’s doing and loves what he’s doing. I’m not applauding this CD just because I happen to have the honor of joining Harpdog on a tune…it really is some great smokin’ blues. Every tune is a winner. If you love the blues you won’t go wrong with this wonderful session. I LOVE the killer guitar playing! It’s hard to say what my favorite is but I gotta say I REALLY like Must’ve Been The Devil. I’ve always liked that tune and Harpdog does it great. I love his harp playing on this one especially. Home Is Where The Harp Is has a cool 8-bar blues groove and I love 8-bar blues progression. Fool Like Me, Hayward Boogie, Cloud Full Of Rain, Fine Little Girl, are all fine and For Better or Worse has especially good lyrics.

Label: RCA/Legacy | Tracks: 11 | Rls.date: 1958/2016

After flirting with traditional African-American material in his previous albums, Belafonte, for the first time, devotes an entire album to the blues. However, of the eleven songs, only two could be classified as traditional blues: "In the Evenin' Mama" and "Cotton Fields," the latter given a five minute treatment. Belafonte would take this song on the road as part of his live act for the next decade. Of the other songs, three were covers of Ray Charles standards ("A Fool For You," "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "Mary Ann").

The Blues Overdrive, European Blues Awards 2015 Winners, for the years best blues album, "Clinch". “On this album we have tried to cut to the chase and get the sound as minimalistic as possible. It’s about getting into the core of the songs. We tease other genres and use fragments from tunes of old masters like Lightnin’ Hopkins and Robert Jr. Lockwood. That way we can keep within the blues tradition, but without it becoming a museum act or irrelevant in 2015.” “In blues circles too often there is too much focus on long solos and too little about the overall presentation of the songs! We are trying to avoid this the best we can!“ –Martin Olsen, Blues Overdrive
