Another beautiful week in sunny South Carolina, but that’s about to change. We are soon headed to Boulder, CO for Otis Taylor’s Trance Blues Festival. This is one thing we have wanted to be part of ever since it’s inception. This years it is on a good weekend for us so we are headed West on November 7th, and we will let ya know just how cool it really was.
I am so thrilled to say that Ladee Bianca sits at the top of our Baker’s Dozen Blues chart. This lady has a voice and style that is universal and real. The release is just that, ‘Real People Music‘ and BTW when you are in Memphis for the IBC’s be sure to see her perform in the solo/duo category.
We have one new debut, and it’s about time it got here. ‘Memphis Grease’ from John Nemeth. John is always so soulful and great sounding and this release is no let down at all, check it out. WE did just see John and his killer band at the Daytona Blues Festival and for photos see our smug mug site.
Our ‘Amuse Bouche’ feature was inspired by none other than Ms. Teeny Tucker. She wrote me a lil’ note and asked about playing some women in blues, and I am happy and proud, to say that I heeded her message and this week we will hear current women in the blues. Lots to choose from and all good so hope you diggin’ them as much as I do. Thanks Teeny, love ya.
Just a reminder that our new radio program is spinning on MojoWax Radio…Classic Blues, just head over to station (links below) and look for our air times.
