For Delta Crossroads, Robert Lockwood Jr., a former student of Robert Johnson, returns to his Delta blues roots. This 16-track album features Lockwood with only his 12-string acoustic guitar. It is rather strange hearing old Delta blues sung by one of its originals on a modern recording. All of the notes from the guitar are clear. Plus, his voice isn't scuffed up by the scratches and pop of the vinyl recording. Lockwood plays a mix of Robert Johnson tunes, a few of his own, and some blues standards including "C.C. Rider." With its high production quality and Lockwood's unique and possibly near-extinct style of singing, Delta Crossroads is a strong testament to the endurance of a Delta blues original.
Didier Lockwood signs, for his great phonographic return, an electroacoustic program of rare freedom. Coming from an unprecedented artistic collaboration, this record, which was recorded in a direct record, is above all the fruit of a collegiate experiment, in which the violinist crosses his bow with the indispensable tandem Charlier / Sourisse and Philippe Balatier, the Nojazz beatmaker. Spontaneous creation, collective musical emulation gives improvisation all its creative capacity in situ. Real space opera, the album that listens without pause, embarks the listener in an initiatory voyage in zero gravity, whose concept would be: to lose oneself to better find oneself.
