This father-and-son team has been a reliable part of the Chicago blues scene for decades on end. Eddie Shaw first gained fame as Howlin’ Wolf’s sax player before he started fronting his own band, Eddie Shaw & the Wolf Gang. Vaan Shaw has justifiably gained a rep as a hotshot guitar player. This collaboration is an entirely acoustic affair, which explains the title. Naked features only Vaan’s guitar and Eddie’s sax and harmonica, minus any electric embellishments.
This impressive series continues with its incredibly 6-CD sets, this one yielding 100 masterful guitar performances!

Delta blues is one of the earliest styles of blues music. Created by black musicians who lived and worked on the farms in north Mississippi, these men and women drew on influences from church songs, prison songs, African rhythms, and early American folk traditions to fashion a new form of music. Unbeknownst to them, the music created in this relatively small area that lies between the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers would spread the world over and shape musical history.
John Miller presents this guitar tutorial based on the music of Jackson, Mississippi from 1910 to 1940. The Jackson blues scene was stylistically rich, spanning the gap from the sophisticated pop blues of Bo Carter to the low-down blues of Rube Lacy.
