 Lonnie Johnson, Victoria Spivey & Roosevelt Sykes 

                       GATEWAY , St. LOUIS BLUES  Jean-Claude Legros 


Saint.Louis, la ville des pianistes rois, du rag et du boogie, révèle au milieu des années 20 le guitariste le plus influent du siècle. C'est à cette époque que Lonnie Johnson transpose sur une guitare les lignes mélodiques suggestives dont son violon régalait déjà les passagers enthousiastes des vapeurs en goguette sur le Mississippi. Dès 1926, il enregistre pour Okeh les fondements de la guitare contemporaine avec un toucher et un timbre que le blues et le jazz font aussitôt leur. C'est dans la ville des pionniers, ou rayonnent la pétillante Victoria Spivey et le bouillonnant Roosevelt Sykes, que Lonnie Johnson ouvre la voie d'un territoire inédit en libérant ces notes soutenues, vibrantes et aériennes qu'il est le premier, avec le grand Louis Armstrong, à faire flotter en essaim au dessus de la nouvelle pulsation des musiques populaires.

BLIND CONNIE WILLIAMS

Imatge
Cantante callejero como se puede ver en la imagen. Nacido en .1915, Florida, EE.UU.. Williams grabó por primera vez en 1961 en Filadelfia, después de haber sido encontrado por folclorista cazatalentos de  espirituales de canto mientras se hacía acompañar por su acordeón . Demostró  tener un repertorio de los blues más conocidos, y ser un consumado guitarrista. Como resultado de haber estudiado en la Escuela de San Petersburgo para Ciegos, Acreditaba una comprensión sofisticada de la armonía, y utiliza muchas notas de paso y los acordes alterados. La técnica de Williams  la completó  por una asociación con el King  Gary Davis en Nueva York (aunque su datación de la misma a los 30 años de edad es confuso, ya que Davis no se movió a Nueva York hasta 1944). Williams también fue un cantante de cuarteto, aunque no dejó nada registrado como tal. En 1974 seguía en activo aunque cada vez se prodigaba menos en las calles. 











Blind Connie Williams (born c. 1915) was an American blues guitarist who …

BIG GEORGE BROCK

Imatge
Mississippi Blues Project info : 
Big George Brock is a native of Grenada MS, who grew up near Clarksdale, doing the hard field work that was the only employment opportunity for many residents of this agricultural area. In the 2006 film “Hard Times” he visits plantations where he worked and describes how hard picking cotton was.
Big George BrockBrock started playing harmonica as a child, and in his teens started to perfrom on weekends. The area was a place where, Brock says, “The blues grew like grass out of the ground.” Those are the kinds of places where musicians acquire the magical ability to sing the blues — and where they leave for better opportunities of any other sort.
Brock moved to St. Louis as a young man, and operated several blues clubs. He fronted a band that held down a regular gig for many years at a club called Climmie’s Western Inn. He has played with many of the “names” in blues, like Muddy Waters, Albert King, Little Milton, and Jimmy Reed, but his own bands have been…
