Big James and the Chicago Playboys : The Big Payback

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

High energy soul powered blues recorded live at the legendary Lionel Hampton Jazz Club in Paris. In addition to three of James's blues-tinged original tunes, the program ranges from the killer James Brown groove of the title cut to the soul classic "Trying To Live My Life Without You," George Clinton’s "I’ll Stay," to the set closing instrumental version of "Smoke On The Water." 

 

The Big Payback is a joyous celebration of the great tradition of horn-based blues ensembles that leaves the listener – much like the Parisian audience – wanting more.

Eddie C. Campbell : Spider Eating Preacher

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spider Eating Preacher is the new album by Chicago blues legend Eddie C. Campbell and it's a family affair. Eddie & Barbara's musical partnership is in full blossom as Barbara plays bass on six songs. Barbara learned the authentic Chicago blues bass "bump" from Eddie! Spider Eating Preacher features 12 new original compositions, including the title track, a song about Barbara's blindness. Their son, David, plays violin on two songs. Eddie is Lurrie Bell's godfather. This is the first time they've recorded together since the teenaged Lurrie played bass on the title track on Eddie's classic 1977 album King of the Jungle. Eddie and Lurrie both play guitar & harp here. Spider Eating Preacher is Eddie's follow-up to Tear This World Up (Delmark 799) which was a finalist for Album of the Year in the 2010 Blues Music Awards.

Bob Margolin with Mike Sponza Band : Blues Around The World

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 “I found new Italian musical brothers touring with the Mike Sponza Band in Central Europe in April, 2011. The fire we started onstage burns in this studio recording too.” – Bob Margolin

 

American Bluesman Bob Margolin has played “Blues around the world” since the 1970s. After spending seven years as a key player in the Muddy Waters Blues Band, Bob continued touring as a leader of his own band and as sideman and musical director for Blues legends like Pinetop Perkins, Nappy Brown, Hubert Sumlin, and many others. He has been a keeper of the flame of the Blues, a living bridge to the fast-disappearing older generation of Bluesmen, and a support and inspiration to the next generation on their way up. Over the years Bob has recorded many albums of his own and played on countless others, and has also become known as a producer, an author, and a founding partner of the artist-centered VizzTone label group.

 

Meanwhile, across the ocean… A longtime Bob Margolin fan, Italian Blues musician Mike Sponza was tearing it up with his own band when he reached out to Bob to join them for a tour of Central Europe. They did ten shows in six European countries, and the combination was so magical, the music so strong that by the end of the tour it was clear they needed to go into the studio to make a record together. Blues Around the World captures that magic with original songs by Bob and by Mike as well as a couple audience favorites, and as a bonus track, Bob’s acoustic take on the classic “Love In Vain.”

King Biscuit, Highway 61 Blues Festival - unprecedented partnership

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An unprecedented partnership between the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Arkansas, and the Highway 61 Blues Festival in Leland, Mississippi, offers an opportunity for blues enthusiasts worldwide to plan September 29-October 6 for a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the Delta Blues.

 

Announced March 7, 2012 at the Arkansas Governor's Conference on Tourism, this pairing will enrich the experience for the thousands of blues fans expected to attend the festivals this fall.

 

The King Biscuit Blues Festival, held on Columbus Day weekend for 27 years, is named for Helena's renowned live blues radio program, "King Biscuit Time." It celebrates the heritage of the town where blues greats like Sonny Boy Williamson and Pinetop Perkins once played every night of the week.

 

Featuring authentic Delta blues musicians and headliners that have included B.B. King and Keb' Mo', the King Biscuit festival draws visitors from all over the U.S. and many European countries.

 

"They come because they love our music, and while they're here, they want to soak up as much blues and as many other aspects of Delta culture as they can, " said Munnie Jordan, Executive Director of the King Biscuit Festival. "Pairing of these two festivals and reaching across state lines is an unprecedented venture. It is a partnership that is built on our love of the music and our blues fans who return every year."

 

The Highway 61 Blues Festival will kick off the two-state celebration Saturday, September 29, in Leland, at the historic musicians' corner beside the legendary blues highway for which the festival is named. Like Helena, Leland was once an entertainment hotbed, frequented by musicians who included guitarists Eugene Powell (Sonny Boy Nelson) and Charlie Booker. Sunday, September 30, the celebration continues at the Holly Ridge Jam, site of the final home of the "founder of the Delta Blues, " Charley Patton. Fans will have the opportunity to visit the graves of Patton and blues singers Willie James Foster and Asie Payton.

 

Highway 61 Blues Festival Chairman Bill Johnson foresees many benefits in the back-to-back events. "Partnering with King Biscuit is a win-win for the festivals and the fans, " he said. "Fans will have two weekends of music to count on with a week of blues activities—across the Delta in both Arkansas and Mississippi delta—in between."

 

"We know our annual international blues visitors stay in the Delta for 7 to 10 days, " noted Wesley Smith, Executive Director, Greenville-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Why not give them more to do while they're here and more reasons to come back next year? We will be able attract more blues artists and keep them in the region longer; smaller communities gain the opportunity to schedule extra performances. We're on the path to providing the every day experience blues fans expect when they visit the Delta, " Smith said.

 

The 2012 King Biscuit Blues Festival will be held Thursday through Saturday, October 4-6, with the "over-the-top" headliner and line-up to be announced May 9, according to Jordan. She and Smith predict the partnership will boost visits to other tourist spots in both states, from Native American burial mounds to Civil War sites to attractions along the Mississippi River.

 

"Fans may come here for the blues, but they always fall in love with the Delta." Smith said.

Letter: Lake Tahoe Music Festival Ceasing Operations

 

 

(sierrasun.com) LAKE TAHOE — The floundering economy's impact on Truckee and Lake Tahoe has led to the cessation of programming events by the Lake Tahoe Music Festival, according to a letter sent Monday to donors.

 

The letter, signed by festival board president Sally Lyon, points to the region's “severe economic downturn” as a reason for ceasing the event, coupled by the rise of a pair of local classical organizations — Toccata and Lake Tahoe SummerFest — leading to competition for donor dollars.

 

The festival has drawn major acts the past few summers, including Michael Bolton and Blues Traveler, who performed in 2011 at Northstar California. It would have celebrated its 30th birthday in 2012.

 

Here is the letter:

 

It is with great sadness that we announce cessation of programming events by the Lake Tahoe Music Festival.The Festival was formed almost 30 years ago to bring classical music to the mountains, after which it expanded its mission “from Bach to Blues and Beyond.” It filled a cultural void in our North Tahoe Region, but that mission is no longer unique with the proliferation of musical events, many of which are no cost to the patron. Additionally, two very formidable classical organizations have moved into the local scene: Tocatta-Tahoe Symphony Orchestra (www.tocattatahoe.com) and the Lake Tahoe SummerFest (www.tahoesummerfest.org ). We urge you to learn more about them as we believe they both warrant your support.

 

While we had hoped to continue with the very popular Orchestra Academy, the costs became prohibitive and the intense competition for your financial support became increasingly more difficult during this severe economic downturn.

 

Proudly we close this chapter of our operation with no debt, thanks to the collaboration of many sponsors. At least through the remainder of this year, there are sufficient funds to continue the Truckee Tahoe Youth Music Program (TTYMP), where high school students instruct grammar school youngsters with beginning musical training. We are hopeful that this program will be undertaken by another music or education organization.

 

Serving this community has been a warm and enriching opportunity for all of us, and we thank you for your many years of support. It's the end of a beautiful run — time to take the Star off the Door.

 

Most sincerely,Sally Lyon, President…. and each member of The Board of Directors

 


 

 

 

 

 

Robert Plant To Play Sunflower River Blues And Gospel Festival

 

 

(ultimate-guitar.com) Blues music has always been important to Robert Plant, and the same can be said of Clarksdale, Mississippi. Not only has Plant been there more than once to explore its deep blues history, he and fellow Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page honored the city by naming their 1998 joint studio effort "Walking Into Clarksdale".

 

Clarksdale is where Plant will be in August when he headlines the 25th anniversary edition of the Sunflower River Blues And Gospel Festival.

 

"This is spectacular news," longtime festival co-chairman Melville Tillis said recently. "We have been in dialogue with Robert Plant for several months, and are thrilled he will be here."

 

According to a March 3 press release, the singer's list of backing musicians for the Sunflower River Blues festival includes guitarist Justin Adams. He's a confirmed member of the Sensational Space Shifters, Plant's new group, which will make its public debut in late July at the Womad festival in the United Kingdom.

 

The lineup for this year's Sunflower River Blues And Gospel Festival, scheduled for Aug. 10-12, also includes harmonica great Charlie Musselwhite, who can be heard on George Thorogood's "2120 South Michigan Ave" album.

 


 

 

Guitar Maker Fender Files For Initial Public Offering

 

 

 

(W.J. Hennigan/latimes.com)  Fender Musical Instruments Corp., the iconic company that has been making guitars in California since its inception in 1946, is seeking to raise $200 million in an initial public stock offering.

 

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday, Fender said it intends to use the money to help pay down $246.2 million in debt and to acquire other businesses.

Although its corporate headquarters are now in Scottsdale, Ariz., the company was founded in Fullerton and makes its American Standard Stratocaster and Telecaster guitars at a 3-acre manufacturing plant in Corona. The last step in Fender's quality-control process involves an experienced musician playing every note on a finished guitar before the instrument is sent to a dealer.

 

The California connection goes back to the company’s late founder, Clarence Leonidas Fender, who opened a Fullerton radio shop during the Depression and tinkered with amps and electric guitars on the side. And the company makes most of its amplifiers and entry-level Fender-brand guitars in Ensenada.

 

Fender said in its SEC filing that it is the country's biggest seller of electric, acoustic and bass guitars. Prices run from a couple hundred dollars for a basic model to thousands of dollars for high-end custom versions.

 

In the filing the company said, “We believe that the musical instruments industry generally, and the fretted instruments market in particular, benefits from the continuing popularity of guitar-based music and bands, as well as the visibility of guitars in other areas of popular culture such as video games, television shows and movies.”

 

Fender guitars have long been identified with the California car and surf culture, and were played by bands such as the Surfaris and the Beach Boys. At Woodstock in 1969, when Jimi Hendrix broke into his haunting rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner," it was a white Stratocaster at his fingertips.

Last year the company had a net income of $3.2 million, up from a loss of $17.3 million in 2010. Sales were up 13% to $700.6 million, from $617.8 million.

 

Fender said it now sells its products in 85 countries. The company hopes to expand its international footprint in emerging markets such as China and India.

 

The company plans to trade the shares on the Nasdaq exchange under the ticker symbol "FNDR." Fender did not disclose how many shares would be sold or estimate their price, nor did it say when the stock sale would take place.

 

 


 

 

Author Honors ‘Dirtdobber Blues' Man With Novel 

 

 

 

(Deborah Wheeler/The Walton Sun)  Butch Hornsby was one of those artists whose success was always buoyed by his talent but stamped down by his alcoholism, says longtime friend Cyril Vetter.

 

Vetter, a part-time South Walton resident, describes Hornsby as a “fiery good ole Southern boy rocker with a rolling thunder voice akin to Jerry Lee Lewis.” The two became fast friends in the 1960s at college at LSU and remained close until Hornsby’s death in 2004.

 

Vetter has published a fictionalized account of his friend’s life in the recently released book “Dirtdobber Blues,” the title of a song written by Hornsby.

 

Vetter is quick to point out that the book is not a biography but a novel.

 

“After so many years, my memory is not the best,” he explains of his decision. As for the book’s accuracy, Vetter says, “Some is true and actually happened as I was there. I wanted to combine some accounts that happened and add scenes that I felt helped the flow of the story as opposed to a true biography.”

 

Vetter produced Hornsby’s first album in the late 1970s and over time produced 20 to 24 songs for the singer. “He was one of those people you either loved or hated,” Vetter said. “He was not prudent with money. He once brought one of his advance checks to me and asked me to help him set up an account. He then broke into my house that night and stole the money and went to a bar and bought everyone a drink. Any measure of success he achieved, he sabotaged.” That is, until he was diagnosed with leukemia in his late 40s and had to quit drinking, Vetter said. That was 10 years before he died. During those last 10 years, he created art collages with found objects and wrote some good works, Vetter said. Regardless of Hornsby’s handful of regional successes, “Judy in Disguise” was his only real hit. Locally, Duke Bardwell, who is also a Louisiana native, still performs Hornsby’s music.

 

“We were like twin brothers from different mothers,” said Bardwell. “We hung out starting in high school in the ’60s. … I used one of his songs on my ‘Angels Wings’ album and I was recorded singing ‘Dirtdobber Blues’ in Birmingham and have performed it in New Orleans.”

 

Vetter’s “Dirtdobber Blues” is a multimedia project that includes a CD. The music is embedded in the text so the reader can either listen to the music while they read or listen independently. There are also pages of Hornsby’s lyrics, sheet music, and photographs of his artwork. All music and lyrics in the book were written by Hornsby.

 

The book’s chapters are loosely themed with the songs on the CD as Vetter weaves a tale of Hornsby’s wild ride of driving creative forces, free love, triumphs and addiction.

Vetter, who divides his time between Baton Rouge and Four Mile Village in South Walton, has published two previous books: “Fonville Winans’ Louisiana: Politics People and Places,” a biography of Winans, the legendary Louisiana photographer, and “The Louisiana Houses of A. Hays Town.”

 

Vetter, a member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, has extensive work in broadcasting and publishing. He is also a U.S. Army veteran who was awarded the Bronze Star.

“Dirtdobber Blues” is available wherever books are sold for $22.50. Ebooks are $9.99.

 

The CD soundtrack of the book is available as an MP3 download on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, and wherever digital music is sold.

Record Label News

Anders Osborne new release set for May 1st

Alligator Records has set a May 1 release date for Black Eye Galaxy (AL 4948), the powerful new album from New Orleans' Anders Osborne.

 

Between the sheer force and potent lyricism of his guitar playing, the riveting depth of his songwriting and the straight-from-the-soul conviction of his vocals, Osborne is among the most original and visionary musicians writing and performing today. 

 

OffBeat magazine recently named Osborne the Crescent City's Best Guitarist for the second straight year, and also awarded him with the Best Roots Rock Artist title.

 

Recorded at the famed Dockside Studio in Maurice, Louisiana, Black Eye Galaxy was produced by Anders along with engineer Warren Riker and Galactic's Stanton Moore. Sounds on the album range from heavy electric mayhem to joyous acoustic melodicism, lyrics move from the darkest depths to the healing power of love.

 

The title is an unambiguous metaphor for Osborne's life as a traveler, a musician, an immigrant, a recovering addict, and as a husband and father. 

 

Black Eye Galaxy is a harrowing but ultimately uplifting cycle of richly detailed songs that are musically and lyrically thought-provoking, exhilarating and completely engaging.

Blind Pig Announces April releases

Blind Pig has announced it will release a new CD from the dynamic performing and songwriting duo of Peter Karp and Sue Foley and CD and LP recordings from the inimitable blues piano icon Pinetop Perkins on April 17, 2012.

 

PETER KARP & SUE FOLEY   "BEYOND THE CROSSROADS"

Beyond the Crossroads marks the newest chapter in the collaboration between these two noted singer-songwriter guitarists.  A high voltage, plank spankin', piano boogyin', slide guitar stompin', blues-rocking CD that showcases twelve brilliantly crafted and unique original compositions.  It's a loud celebration of triumph over tragedy, optimism over despair and faith over hopelessness.

 

It delivers on the promise of Karp and Foley's groundbreaking, critically acclaimed 2010 song-cycle, He Said She Said.  That album hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Blues Chart and was #1 for 6 weeks on the national blues and roots music radio charts.  Says Foley, "Beyond the Crossroads is a natural extension of what we started with He Said She Said in that we're writing songs with themes in mind.  Positivity, renewal, absolution."  Karp added, "These times are trying - in the heart and in the streets. Time to fire up the amps and blow heat."

 

PINETOP PERKINS   "HEAVEN"

If there is a heaven - and God knows there ought to be for those blues musicians of The Delta who endured grievous deprivation and suffered countless indignities yet brought joy to so many - Pinetop Perkins is certainly there.  It is unquestionably a little slice of heaven for us to hear Pinetop once again on this previously unreleased after-hours set of masterful music. 

 

The beloved dean of blues piano players and three time Grammy winner passed away last year, just four months shy of his 98th birthday.  Heaven captures a beautifully intimate 1986 studio performance by Pinetop when he was "only" seventy three, and still at the peak of his powers.  He performs solo on all but four tracks. The self-taught master pianist is in magnificent form, delivering thundering chords and glissandos, rolled chords, trilled notes, complex metrical substitutions, sly musical quotes - and of course his trademark lightly swinging boogie woogie.  His strong, rough-edged voice conveys an authority that is complemented by a subtle playfulness and vulnerability.   On this album, his vocals are supplemented by recently-recorded contributions from Willie Smith on "Sitting On Top of the World" (believed to be Smith's last recording, as he passed away in September 2011) and Otis Clay, who captures the sweet agony of "Since I Fell For You."

 

Blind Pig is also issuing Pinetop's album on a limited-edition 180 gram audiophile LP, the first title the label's  simultaneously released on CD and LP since 1990.  And in Pine's memory, we also urge support of the Pinetop Perkins Foundation (www.pinetopfoundation.org).
