A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: July 25, 2016

13LISA MANN QUEEN OF THE CHART
LIVE MUSIC IS BETTER – AMUSE BOUCHE
DANA ROBBINS PHOTO ALBUM ON SMUGMUG
GUEST CURATOR
MUSIC CITY BLUES KITCHEN – NEW EDITION

Lisa Mann takes the reigns as Queen of the chart this week. Multiple time BMA Winner and dynamic vocalist, bass player, and more gets to bask in the #1 slot this week. Her latest release ‘Hard Times Bad Decisions‘ reads like a road map for the world lately……

Our new addition is Big Harp George, who has a new release out for of us to enjoy, featuring some dynamic harp playing (go figure).

Our Amuse Bouche features a sampling of  the plethora of LIVE recordings that have hit the market of late. I doDennis Jones Last week believe that with the money it costs to produce an in studio release, with the fact that bands have to tour to keep in the public eye, Live recordings have become more important, and better!

So we will feature a bunch of them and hope you can close your eyes and sit in the crowd and listen to these artists play live for you.

This week ends Dennis Jones’ month long stint as Guest Curator for Blues411, be sure to catch his last few episodes and get ready for next month’s host Shaun Murphy starting in August, and more to come as we have booked guest curators ahead for the rest of the year.

During our visit to Nashville we had a chance to MC a fund raising benefit for Dana Robbins. You heard some of the artists last week on ours Amuse Bouche, and we have just put up a photo album that Leslie shot while there. Go check it out and Idlewild South MCBK Logosee much more than what was on Facebook.

Our Nashville based ‘Music City Blues Kitchen‘ has a new show starting today (Monday) at Noon. It will feature our chat with three of the cats from Idlewild South. They are celebrating the 70th birthday of Duane Allman and we will feature why’s and how’s plus some really interesting musical choices that you won’t hear on any other Blues or possibly other genre radio station. The show is brought to you by The Galaxie Agency & Gina Hughes.
