LUELLA MILLER

Imatge
Artist Biography by arwulf arwulf in allmusic 


Precious little is known about the life of blues vocalist Luella Miller. She is largely remembered for having collaborated with guitarist and violinist Lonnie Johnson. Some say she was born in Texas, others believe she came up in St. Louis or thereabouts. Discovered by a Vocalion talent scout, she made her first records in St. Louis on July 7, 1926. Her next recording date occurred in New York City on January 28, 1927. Between April 26, 1927, and August 1, 1928, she sang on five more recording sessions, all of which took place in Chicago, where her career briefly peaked. Her name appeared in advertisements published in the Chicago Defender, North America's most influential Afro-American weekly, on nine occasions between November 1926 and November 1928.
Like her personal life, Luella Miller's 78-rpm discography is peppered with question marks. Was it Dewey Jackson or Andrew "Big Babe" Webb on cornet? Was the pianist on her …

WALTER BARNES AND HIS ROYAL CREOLIANS

Imatge
Walter Barnes (July 8, 1905 – April 23, 1940) was an American jazz clarinetist, saxophonist and bandleader.
Barnes was born in Vicksburg, Mississippi, but grew up in Chicago and studied under Franz Schoepp in addition to attending the Chicago Musical College and the American Conservatory of Music. He led his own bands from the early 1920s in addition to playing with Detroit Shannon and his Royal Creolians. After Shannon's retinue became dissatisfied with his leadership, Barnes took control of this group as well. He played mostly in Chicago, though the band did hold a residency at the Savoy Ballroom in New York City as well. His band recorded in 1928-29 for Brunswick Records.
He toured the American South in the 1930s to considerable success, touring there yearly; by 1938 his ensemble included 16 members. Around this time, Barnes also worked as a columnist for the Chicago Defender newspaper, a periodical popular with African-American audiences, and used his position to advertise his o…

FESTIVAL DE BLUES DE RUBI * IV EDICIÓ ! *

Imatge
Hola a tothom!
Ja tenim el nostre IV Festival de Blues de Rubí.
No us cansarem de nou dient-vos tot el que ens costa fer aquest Festival amb els pocs recursos del que disposem, però si que volem agrair immensament a tots els patrocinadors privats el seu esforç.
Aquestes empreses patrocinadores en la majoria dels casos no tindrà un rendiment econòmic i és evident que dintre del seu esforç hi ha un sentiment cultural i de Ciutat. Si us plau valorem-les.
La SBR fa 5 anys i en el moment del seu naixement ja vam apostar per una projecció exterior de la nostra Ciutat acord amb la realitat. Creiem que això ho hem aconseguit i amb una despesa ínfima per part del Ciutadà.
Amb el nostre cartell, com cada any hem assolit un nivell de Festival de Blues de primera divisió Estatal. En aquesta ocasió i com en altres edicions anteriors hem buscat apostar per bandes joves emergents i per projectes pioners amb tota l'experiència, també hem aconseguit Bandes amb projecció internacional que segur que ens …

D.C. BELLAMY

Imatge
Artist Biography by Richard Skelly In allmusic 

After many years as a sideman to singers like Betty Everett, Donny Hathaway, Gene "Duke of Earl" Chandler, Brook Benton, and many other prominent classic R&B singers, guitarist and singer/songwriter D.C. Bellamy released his debut album for the Rooster Blues label, Water to Wine, with America's Most Wanted, in the fall of 2000.
Gregory "D.C." Bellamy was born on Chicago's West Side in March 1949. He grew up in a household surrounded by musical talent, as his half brother was the late Curtis Mayfield, who would often hold rehearsals for his group, the Impressions, in the family's living room. Bellamy's grandmother purchased a piano for the family to use, and the children were all encouraged to play it. At age nine, Bellamy got his first guitar as a Christmas gift, and he began playing by ear and singing and playing along with Elvis Presley recordings. Even though he was raised in Chicago, a home for t…

LONNIE SHIELDS

Imatge
Nacido en West Helena ( Arkansas ) , Lonnie Shields aprendió a tocar basándose en gran número de guitarristas , desde Jimmy Reed, pasando por Frank Frost  ( con el que llegó a tocar) hasta B.B.KING y Z.Z.HILL dos de sus grandes ídolos personales. Shields estuvo durante algún tiempo tocando en el grupo del batería Sam Carr , el hijo de Robert Nighthawk , quien le enseñó mucho acerca del sentimiento del Blues. Destaca principalmente como un gran acompañante y durante cierto tiempo las expectativas del género se depositaron en él , si bien por el  momento , a pesar de disponer en el mercado de varios álbumes con buenos temas , todavía se espera más de él, según comenta Gérard Herzhaft en La Gran Enciclopedia del Blues.













Lonnie Shields (born April 17, 1956) is an American electric blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist. His primary influence was B.B. King.[2] He has released six albums to date, and one publication described his music as "bewitching, funk-influenced variations on the o…

SONNY BOY WILLIAMSON II TRIBUTE : From Catalònia , Full Video !

Imatge
Harmonica community, I'm so glad to share a special event we had a few moons ago. A Rice Miller aka Sonny Boy Williamson II tribute made for the first time ever in Barcelona, Spain. It was absolutely a unique event. Almost every harp player located in Barcelona was there. And not only that! Even the backing band played some harp too. Blas Picón were on drums (one of the greatest blues drummers here). Jordi Abad slapping the bass like nobody and myslef on piano. Special mention to Oscar Rabadán on guitar who not only didn't kill anybody after backing more than ten blowers. He also played some harp for the first time... By VICTOR PUERTAS

OSCAR LINARES TRIO & VIRGINIA RUBIO at HONKY TONK BLUES BAR

Imatge
Me resulta complicado reflejar en unas pocas palabras lo vivido ayer en el HONKY TONK BLUES BAR de Barcelona, Me resulta complicado porqué no sé muy bien como hacer que el sentimiento aflorado pueda convertirse en palabras ,  en palabras creíbles y capaces de hacer que la persona que lo lea pueda hacerce cargo de cuanto explico, seré breve y diré que ayer se vivió una tarde-noche emotiva para los amantes del Blues en estado puro. Oscar Linares , Miquel Grifell, Victor Barceló y Virginia Rubio nos dieron una Master class de Blues auténtico, sin concesiones , del de verdad, del crecido partiendo de los sentimientos de cada autor hacia la inmortalidad que perdura aún en nuestros días sin perder un ápice de su valor poético y dramático. Culminó la velada con sendos " a capella " protagonizados primero por Victor Barceló ( demostrando sus dotes de actor ) y de Virgina Rubio seguidamente , que dejaron sin respiración al respetable. Como muestra del acontecimiento os dejamos con un…
