Sens dubte un dels cantants que mes van influir a Little Richard en els seus inicis. Nascut a ATLANTA 1932/1991 Apareix en la compilació de Future Noise Music Ltd. -Fantastic Voyage- que amb data 2010 va treure una col-lecció dedicada als diferents estils de Blues segons tendencies localitzades a ciutats americanes ,així podem trobar , Chicago, New York , Memphis, etc. En aquest cas us parlem de la que ens presenten musics d´ATLANTA .

THE HOKUM BOYS

Imatge
Georgia Tom Dorsey and Banjo Ikey Robinson as The Hokum Boys

Biography  by arwulf arwulf


The word "hokum" is believed to have descended from the English term "hokey-pokey," denoting both ridicule and the ridiculous; for more than a century "hokey-pokey" has also been used, on both sides of the Atlantic, to describe low-grade ice cream sold on the streets. Hokum can mean flattery, insincerity, derision, deception, nonsense, cheapness, or any sort of stage gimmickry used to elicit a response from jaded audiences. Musically, hokum conveys and deserves most if not all of these meanings. Between the years 1929 and 1937 several different Chicago-based blues/jazz ensembles made records as the Hokum Boys or the Famous Hokum Boys. During the summer of 1929 pianist Alex Hill and guitarists Dan Roberts and Alex Robinson made records for the Paramount label under the name of the Hokum Boys. By early autumn the group consisted of pianist Jimmy Blythe, guitarist Bob Al…

BLIND LEMON JEFFERSON

Imatge
El grupo estadounidense de culto en la década de los 70´s JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, se pondría este nombre como homenaje al que fuera uno de sus referentes,  BLIND LEMON JEFFERSON , que lo fué para numerosos artistas entre los cuales B.B.King  Trabajador incansable a pesar de su ceguera , no dudaba en estar siempre moviéndose de un lado para otro del territorio ( ver ntro. post. Leadbelly 1976,  de 19-01-2013 donde estan perfectamente reflejadas sus " hazañas" junto a su colega Huddie Leadbetter ) en la excelente película de GORDON PARKS sobre un libro de Ernest Kinoy , y que a pesar de que solamente existe una sola fotografía en la cual aparece Blind Lemon , ciertamente lo retrata ( (suponemos ) tal y como era de irónico y sarcástico.  Traemos a colación una vez más a Blind Lemon Jefferson porque el otro día hojeando el libro BARRELHOUSE WORDS . A Blues Dialect Dictionary , de Stephen Calt, Jefferson aparece como el que mas reseñas acumula precisamente por su originalidad en…

HOT TUNA

Jorma Kaukonen , ( Washington 23-12-40)  guitarrista de los Jefferson Airplane formó en paralelo el grupo HOT TUNA , junto con el bajista Jack Casady y el cantante Marty Balin, básicamente en principio se limitaban a actuar en los periodos en que Jefferson Airplane no tenía actividad. Despues de numerosos cambios en el seno del grupo se les uniría el violinista Papa John Creach antes de pasar definitivamente a formar parte de Jefferson Airplane , juntos llegaron a grabar varios LP´s a principios de los setenta ,hicieron una música básicamente influenciada por el Blues .El guitarrista Jorma Kaukonen ( sigue en activo ) se inclina principalmente por la guitarra acústica sin desdechar en ningún momento la eléctrica, como en este tema de  Jimmy Reed , Baby what you want me to do.

After playing in Atlantic City, Jackson moved to New York City in 1923, where he played with Lionel Howard's Musical Aces in 1924 and recorded with Bob Fuller and Elmer Snowden. He led his own ensemble, the Krazy Kats, for recordings in 1930, and following this group's dissolution he played extensively as a solo pianist in nightclubs in New York. During this time he also accompanied singers such as Viola McCoy, Lena Wilson, Sara Martin, and Clara Smith. He recorded with Sidney Bechet in 1940-41 and recorded as a soloist or leader in 1944-45, 1961, and 1969.

WALTER DAVIS

Imatge
Walter Davis (March 1, 1912 – October 22, 1963) was an African American blues singer and pianist. Davis had a rich singing voice that was as expressive as the best of the Delta blues vocalists. His best-known recording, a version of the train blues standard "Sunnyland Blues", which he released in 1931, is more notable for the warmth and poignancy of his singing than for his piano playing. Two more of his best known songs were "Ashes In My Whiskey" and "Blue Blues". He was also billed as 'Hooker Joe'.
Davis was born on a farm in Grenada, Mississippi, United States and ran away from home at about 13 years of age, landing in St. Louis, Missouri. During the period from the late 1920s through the early 1950s he played club dates in the South and the lower Midwest, often with guitarist Henry Townsend and fellow pianist Peetie Wheatstraw, and recorded prolifically. Roosevelt Sykes accompanied him on his first records (1930–33); thereafter he had the abi…

HARMONICA FRANK FLOYD

 " CURIOSA " la manera de tocar la armónica de Mr. Frank Floyd :             









Harmonica Frank (October 11, 1908, Toccopola, Mississippi - August 7, 1984, Blanchester, Ohio) was an American blues singer, guitarist and harmonicist.


Early life, performing technique Frank Floyd was the son of itinerant parents who separated without giving him a name. He was raised by his sharecropping grandparents, who died while he was a teenager. He taught himself to play harmonica when he was 10 years old, and he eventually learned guitar. He gave himself the name Frank Floyd and began performing in the 1920s for traveling carnivals and medicine shows. He learned many types of folk music and became a mimic, effortlessly switching from humorous hillbilly ballads to deep country blues. With his self-taught harmonica technique, he was a one-man band, able to play the instrument without his hands or the need for a neck brace. While also playing guitar, he perfected a technique of manipulating the…

George Thorogood is an American icon. Together with his band The Destroyers he has become as much a part of American culture as the 4th of July, Moms apple pie or Rock n Roll itself.
2003 is the bands thirtieth anniversary and sees them in sparkling form. The new album, their first for Eagle Records, includes Thorogoods signature guitar licks and trademark vocals, ably backed by the Destroyers who play with passion and intensity. The title track is written by John Lee Hooker and there are also covers of tracks by Bo Diddley (You Dont Love Me, You Dont Care), Chuck Berry (Move It) and Eddie Cochran (My Way) alongside Thorogood originals. The album has been produced by Jim Gaines, who produced Santanas mu…

Concierto conmemorativo del 70 aniversario de John     
       Mayall /2003 







Con algunas interrupciones, the Bluesbreakers han seguido en gira y sacando discos (50 hasta la fecha), aunque no han vuelto a alcanzar las criticas ni la aclamación del publico de sus primeros discos. En 2003, Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor y Chris Barber se unieron con la banda para el concierto de 70 cumpleaños de John Mayall en Liverpool — dicho concierto fue editado más tarde en CD y DVD. En 2004, con Buddy Whittington, Joe Yuele, Hank Van Sickle y Tom Canning, la banda estuvo de gira por el Reino Unido con Mick Taylor como artista invitado. En noviembre de 2008 John Mayall anuncio en su web que abandonaba a los Bluesbreakers debido a su gran carga de trabajo y para darse a sí mismo la libertad de tocar con otros músicos.

SHAKEY JAKE

Imatge
Shakey Jake Harris (April 12, 1921 – March 2, 1990) was an American Chicago blues singer, harmonicist and songwriter. Harris released five albums over a period of almost 25 years, and he was often musically associated with his nephew, Magic Sam.

James D. Harris was born in Earle, Arkansas, but relocated with his family to Chicago, Illinois, at the age of seven. He played in several Chicago blues ensembles in the late 1940s. He also worked as a mechanic, and a professional gambler (from whence his nickname came - "Shake 'em"). His debut recording did not take place until 1958. His single, "Call Me If You Need Me" / "Roll Your Moneymaker", was released by Artistic Records, featured Magic Sam and Syl Johnson on guitar, and was produced by Willie Dixon. Harris was not paid for the session, but won $700 shooting craps with label owner Eli Toscano. In 1960, Bluesville Records teamed Harris with the jazz musicians Jack McDuff and Bill Jennings, for the album…

Según su propia descripción . . . . . . . .



EL GRUPO En algún lugar entre la Creedence, Mink de Ville, Chris Isaak, los Flaming Groovies, JJ Cale, Ben Vaughn y el inabarcable universo del blues, vamos buscándonos un hueco.

En el idioma de Cervantes, para que se nos entienda, o que se sepa que no se nos entiende.


Sin más meta que defender unas canciones que merecen la pena, pasar un buen rato e irnos a la cama satisfechos, aunque sea solos y sobrios.


Siempre tuyos,
