A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: March 3, 2014

A Baker's Dozen Of Blues

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues

March is upon us, let’s hope that overall the weather treats us a little bit better than it has so far this year.
Lots has been happening, the voting deadline for the Blues Music Awards has come and gone, now it’s time to tally ‘em up – and then convene in Memphis in May for the celebration and coronation of the winners. As we all know everyone who got a nomination is a winner, and if we gonna have a contest and votes someone gotta take home something!
Speaking of taking home the ‘bacon’ this week we got us Chicago Home-boy Tom Holland & The Shuffle Kings, with their release “No Fluff, Just the Stuff” at the #1 spot. Congrats Tom, well deserved.

We also have some new additions to the ‘big chart’  one is an outstanding vocalist and lady Ms. Shaun Murphy, the other is a very cool cat who has the ‘down-low’ wrapped up tight and outta sight, Mudcat!

Our Amuse Bouche features the song ‘All Your Love’ this week. Inspired by Scott Muni from NYC Radio back in the day, and more currently by Bill Wax and his ‘wash cycle’ we are featuring our pu-pu platter of ‘All Your Love’ with versions by 8 artists, hope ya enjoy it. If not we will only run this type of thing once a month so…

One extra special spot is Michissippi  Mick Kolassa and his new release, all proceeds go to the HART Fund and Generation Blues – so give it a listen and buy it and do the right thing. You can find out more about these parts of the Blues Foundation at the above link to their site.

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues: February 24, 2014

A Baker's Dozen Of Blues

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues

As we close out February, just a little reminder that it’s getting close to the end to join the Blues Foundation and cast your vote for the Nominees for the Blues Music Awards.  Yes, your vote does matter, it has equal weight and pull as anyone’s and you CAN make a difference.

Coming off a week of firsts, we have another – Annie Mack’s release ‘Baptized in the Blues’ has claimed the #1 spot. With Bobby Murray hanging on to it for two weeks straight there was considerable rumblings that she would peak at #2 and then give way.  Not this girl!!!  Congratulations.

Debuting on the Baker’s Dozen play chart is Niecie, and Michael Packer,  about as different as you can get. But all good and all blues people. Be sure to checkout who just got listed on the Chef Suggestion portion of our menu, yes indeed!

Our Amuse Bouche section is once again a tribute tot he artists we saw and enjoyed in Memphis. Some of them competed, one won, others just added value to the whole thing. I urge you to check these folks out and buy some music from them.

One extra special spot is Michissippi  Mick Kolassa and his new release, all proceeds go to the HART Fund and Generation Blues – so give it a listen and buy it and do the right thing. You can find out more about these parts of the Blues Foundation at the above link to their site.

A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: February 17, 2014

A Baker's Dozen Of Blues

A Baker’s Dozen Of Blues

We have all survived Valentine’s Day, managed to make the right choice and just maybe take an honest look at the one we love and appreciate them beyond the commercial crap that we always get fed.

Soap box off….on to this weeks Baker’s Dozen of Blues. Well it had to happen at some point, and this is the time! Bobby Murray has held on to the coveted #1 spot on the chart with his release and title track “I’m Stickin’ With You” That’s a pretty good hold with hard pressure from Annie Mack, Tom Holland and new folks like Annika Chambers & Micah Kesserling nudging folks out the way. Congrats Mr. Bobby Murray cos we are indeed “like white on rice, like cool on ice” we are stickin’ with you. Oh yeah thanks for the very cool promo spot, I’m a play that at parties, that a great bit of music. Hey y’all be sure to catch it just before the #1 release is played.

Two very cool and different artists fill out the bottom end of the Dozen. The Ori Naftaly Band out of Israel, and The Blues Doctors from Mississippi. These releases and tracks show us just how different the blues can be, and that’s what keeps it thriving and always evolving.

This week we are featuring one of our Blues Festival Media Partners, The Tampa Bay Music Festival. It has established itself as one of the world’s preeminent blues concerts and was the recipient of the Blues Foundation’s 2011 “Keepin’ the Blues Alive” award for Best U.S. Blues Festival. Over the years their stage has welcomed legends such as Buddy Guy, George Thorogood, Taj Mahal, Robert Cray, Delbert McClinton, Little Feat, Jonny Lang, Los Lobos, Jerry Lee Lewis, Koko Taylor, Jimmie Vaughan, Irma Thomas, Susan Tedeschi, and others, in what has truly become a magnificent celebration of music!

You can purchase a single day or three day VIP package. You will enjoy front stage seating, large VIP shade tents, complimentary beer, foods, and drinks, in a private area on the beautiful shores of Tampa Bay. When you do please mention that Blues411 sent ya! Then send us an email or Facebook private message telling us you brought your VIP pass and we can let ya in on an exclusive reward for our reads only. Trust me you will be thrilled.
