Blues and beyond... an ever changing 12-bars affaire...

Blues is an ever changing beast... a snake in always new skin...

I'm always surprised when, after loving listenings to Son House, Robert Johnson, Missisipi John Hurt, Skip James and Muddy Waters, I discover - by chance, while driving, coming from the radio - the likes of Chris Thomas King!

The disk I'm showing is a true gem!

Reminds me the experiments of Robert Johnson's hinted, in-acid blues experiments and electronic filtrations by Leila Adu/Mike Cooper/Fabrizio Spera - Truth in the abstract blues - on Rai Trade label...


Blues is - indeed - more than music... it's a living juice.
