A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: July 28, 2014

We are on the road home from another fabulous Pennsylvania Blues Festival. Each of the artists gave us their very best, and the groove was heavy with the blues and love for the extended framily. Great to see friends, and make new ones.

A special shout out to Michael Cloeren and crew for putting it all together for us once again. If you haven’t been to this festival you are surely missing a great one. Put It on the bucket list.

Blues411_200x200We are giving y’all a listen to the artists who provided so much fun and music to us in our Amuse Bouche portion of the show (which occurs in the second hour).

Our new #1 this week is a personal favorite of mine, and many others - Janiva Magness, and her release ‘original’. This release is on her record label Fathead and has done exceedingly well in the blues/roots world and charts. We are proud to be able to bring you, yet, another track from her release this one is called ‘Who Am I’ this is the third track from the release we have featured.

New to the list this week is Carmen Grillo. This young artist worked with legendary funk R&B band Tower of Power for many years. This release shows those influences and more, and I hope you dig the grooves he is putting down.

A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: July 21, 2014

IMG_6034_9458_edited-1It was a sad week once we learned of the death of a true superstar in the blues field, Johnny Winter. There is much to say and not enough time to say it – so suffice it to say that we send condolences to his brother Edgar, his manager and friend Paul Nelson, his family, and all of his fans from over the many years he has graced us with his unique and heartfelt blues playing.

With that in mind we made a decision to pay tribute to Johnny and the music he loved so dearly by saluting him in his various forms of blues. As a solo performer, as part of him and Edgar, his work with blues legends such as Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Willie Dixon and others. Our Amuse Bouche will feature some not so common tracks from his long and hallowed history in the blues, we hope you will enjoy these specially selected tracks and remember him fondly with a smile on your face looking up to heaven. Bless ya brother, play on.

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues

Our new #1 this week is Back Pack Jones, a pretty amazing feat considering we had never heard of them but their music won us over and we hope it has made an impression on you. Another milestone for Jarekus Singleton - he has returned to the Baker’s Dozen chart. Just three weeks after reaching the #1 spot (and holding to it for 2 weeks) he has reappeared on our chart. Never before has this happened. Thanks to all the fans and supporters who contacted us and had his back. He is at #5 this week.

We have two new main course entrees this week – Rip Lee Pryor, son of legendary bluesman Snooky Pryor, and a new band out of NY State Pork Chop Willie, who feature the music of Mississippi Hill Country filtered through the grit and hard edged realities of NYC. We will see Rip this coming weekend, along with Jarekus (and many other fine artists) at the Pennsylvania Blues Fest, hope to see many of you there too. Be sure to come by and say hi!
