Being a great public speaker can put you on the pathway to success, whether you're looking to teach, inform, persuade, or defend an idea. Yet many of us live in fear of public speaking.

Chicago Blues: A Living History is a tribute to the past, present and future of the Chicago Blues. It pays homage to its creators, its rich history, its current practitioners, and its singular place in the (r)evolution of 20th century American music. This is not an anthology or a compilation of what came before. With this CD, history is being made at the same time it is being presented. It is not a retro recording, rather it is intended to be the opposite. This recording, on two discs, allows the listener to hear the evolution of the Chicago Blues sound in chronological order from the 1940s to the present as interpreted by four Chicago bluesmen that have inherited this tradition. Billy Boy Arnold, John Primer, Billy Branch and Lurrie Bell are the bridge between the originators of the genre and the Chicago Blues of today–each of them has a foot in a generation of Chicago Blues history right up to present day; through them the Chicago Blues remains a living tradition.
