Alligator Records has set a June 26 release date for MOMENT OF TRUTH, the blistering new CD from guitarist/ vocalist/ songwriter Tinsley Ellis. Tinsley’s hometown paper, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, calls his music, “a potent, amazing trip through electric blues-rock.” Rolling Stone said, “feral blues guitar…non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor’s edge…his eloquence dazzles…he achieves pyrotechnics that rival Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton.” MOMENT OF TRUTH is Ellis’ lyrically deepest, most guitar driven and aggressive album of his career.

Produced by Ellis, MOMENT OF TRUTH captures all the power and energy of his legendary live performances. His vocals reach new heights of soulfulness and expressiveness; his guitar playing is ferocious and relentless, but, when the mood calls for it, gentle and moving. But what really sets the album apart is the depth of Ellis’ songwriting. The material deals in matters both personal and universal and runs the gamut of human emotions. MOMENT OF TRUTH is Ellis’ most wide-ranging and inspired recording.

Born in Atlanta in 1957, Ellis grew up in southern Florida and first played guitar at age eight. He found the blues through the backdoor of the British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, The Animals, Cream, and The Rolling Stones. He especially loved the Kings – Freddie, B.B. and Albert – and spent hours immersing himself in their music. His love for the blues solidified when he was 14. At a B.B. King performance, Tinsley sat mesmerized in the front row. When B.B. broke a string on Lucille, he changed it without missing a beat, and handed the broken string to Ellis. After the show, B.B. came out and talked with fans, further impressing Tinsley with his warmth and down-to-earth attitude. By now Tinsley’s fate was sealed; he had to become a blues guitarist. And yes, he still has that string.

Already an accomplished teenaged musician, Ellis left Florida and returned to Atlanta in 1975. He soon joined the Alley Cats, a gritty blues band that included Preston Hubbard (of Fabulous Thunderbirds fame). In 1981, along with veteran blues singer and harpist Chicago Bob Nelson, Tinsley formed The Heartfixers, a group that would become Atlanta’s top-drawing blues band. After cutting Cool On It and Tore Up with The Heartfixers, Ellis was ready to head out on his own. He sent a copy of the master tape for his solo debut to Bruce Iglauer at Alligator Records. “I had heard Cool On It," recalls Iglauer, “and I was amazed. I hadn't heard Tinsley before, but he played like the guys with huge international reputations. It wasn't just his raw power; it was his taste and maturity that got to me. It had the power of rock but felt like the blues. I knew I wanted to hear more of this guy.”

GEORGIA BLUE, Tinsley’s first Alligator release, hit an unprepared public by surprise in 1988. Critics and fans quickly agreed that a new and original guitar hero had emerged. Before long, Alligator arranged to reissue COOL ON IT and TORE UP, thus exposing Tinsley’s blistering earlier music to a growing fan base. Tinsley’s next releases, 1989’s FANNING THE FLAMES, 1992’s TROUBLE TIME, 1994’s STORM WARNING and 1997’s FIRE IT UP  (produced by the legendary Tom Dowd), solidified Ellis’ reputation as a guitar hero with depth and substance.

Ellis’ 2005 return to Alligator (after short stints with Capricorn and Telarc Records), the searing guitar-fueled LIVE-HIGHWAYMAN, was the live recording his fans had been demanding for years. Recorded at a packed club just outside Chicago, the CD takes Ellis’ extended soloing and heartfelt vocals to staggering heights. The Chicago Tribune said, “Incendiary live performances, inspired, original and funky.” 

Averaging over 150 live shows a year, Ellis has played in all 50 states, as well as Canada, Europe, Australia and South America. Whether he’s out with his own band or sharing stages with The Allman Brothers, Robert Cray, Koko Taylor or Widespread Panic, he spreads his jaw-dropping licks, thunderous axe work and intense vocals everywhere he goes. With the massive touring supporting MOMENT OF TRUTH, Ellis will bring his high-energy, guitar-drenched performances to people all over the world. Tinsley Ellis’ time has come. For him and his growing legion of fans, the moment of truth is now.

Einige 100 Meter Multicore wurden verlegt und 8 verschiedene Räume damit verkabelt.1000 m2 Wohnfläche wurden uns von unserem Freund Mag.Wall,  für die Aufnahmen zu Verfügung gestellt. Das Indoor-Pool gab den Hall. Hans Theessink selbst spielte im Raum neben der uralten Weinpresse.

Zweytick´sche Bergweine aus Ratsch an der Weinstraße sind heute im In- und Ausland weit bekannt.  Inspiriert von Hans Theessink seiner Musik wurde der Slow Train Wein komponiert.

SLOW TRAIN – Press Quotes
SLOW TRAIN in der Top 10 der Euro Americana chart (Mai 200/)
Mit einem solchen  Soundtrack im Gepäck  steigt man freiwillig gerne in jeden noch so langsamen Bummelzug ein! (Jazz Podium (D) Mai 2007)
Stimmig, erdig, ehrlich, engagiert, mitunter auch politisch – Hans Theessink macht auf „Slow Train“ erneut aus seinem Herzen keine Mördergrube. Er sagt, was er denkt. Und er setzt es musikalisch in feinsten Arrangements um, deren Spektrum weit über den Blues hinausreichen. (Reinhold Gruber, OÖ Nachrichten, A, april 07)
Der Wienerischste aller Holländer hat schon oft genug bewiesen, dass er das Mississippi Delta nicht nur vom Hörensagen kennt. (Kleine Zeitung (A), TSC, 04.07)
This is one of those 'wow' albums! 'Slow Train' by Hans Theessink is an absolutely  stunning album that combines "blues, roots rock, Americana, worldmusic, folk, and gospel" and more... an enjoyable outing full of originality and fascinating performances. (Peter J Brown, toxic pete, UK, 04.07)
The variety of influences that have been brought to this album make it a terrific listen and if it isn’t in the top ten for the year I will be very surprised. (Andy Snipper/ blues matters, UK)
Ein ganz Großer seines Fachs, nämlich der Bluesmusiker Hans Theessink hat –  wie soll man es anders bezeichnen? – ein wunderschönes Album eingespielt. (Sound & Media (A)
Die Reise mit seinem „Slow Train“ durch die Blueslandschaft bringt Theessinks hervorragende Songwriter-Qualitäten zum Ausdruck. Mit seiner unvergleichlichen Stimme singt Theessink über die alten Bluesthemen wie Love, Job und Travelling, und macht uns die Zugfahrt spannend und angenehm. (Jazzzeit, A, bak, 04.07)

quote form the review in BACK TO THE ROOTS (Benelux):
"In 2005 noemde ik Billy Jones een vernieuwer van de blues. Deze cd bevestigt dat. Sterker nog. Jones gaat nog iets breder in het etaleren van schrijverskunsten en vertolkerscapaciteiten. Dit is uitstekende soulvolle blues met actuele lyrische thema's  en onderwerpen."

RELEASE DATE: June 5, 2007
"(Eli) Cook doesn't just play exceptionally well for someone his age. He plays exceptionally well for someone of any age, in any age. He's a prodigy with enough soul in him now to match someone with years of experience, and the chops to flaunt it." ~The Hook, Charlottesville, VA


1. Terraplane Blues
2. Don’t Ride My Pony
3. Anything You Say
4. Irene
5. Miss Blues’es Child
6. Grinnin’ in Your Face
7. Goin’ Down South
8. Baby What You Want Me To Do
9. Highway Song
10. Poor Black Maddie
11. Trick Bag
12. Fixin’ to Die

Charlottesville, Virginia's best kept secret Eli Cook is about to leave home with his June 5 debut release of Miss Blues'es Child on Valley Entertainment. Paying homage to traditional delta blues and heroes such as Mississippi John Hurt and Robert Johnson, the new disc features little more than Cook's impressive guitar playing and gritty vocals. Listeners will take a double take at the CD cover when they hit the play button. The blues just aren't played like this anymore.

“I avoided a lot of twelve bar blues and went straight for the old-school, one-chord stuff, says Cook. “That's actually some of my favorite stuff, the eerie dark tunes by R.L. Burnside and Fred McDowell.” Big names to be throwing around for a twenty year old from Charlottesville, Virginia who has rarely played outside of hometown city limits.

Cook mixes up his own material with the old, down in the Delta-blues tracks. The title track sounds as if it could be a recently discovered venerable tune from a long ago era, but with a slightly updated quality. However, he's not just playing the same licks as his mentors, but adding his signature sound and style to a nearly lost art of the blues.

In addition to playing the dive bars and church revivals in his home area, Cook has graduated to opening for B.B. King and performing with African percussionist Darrell Rose at DC's Kennedy Center Millennium Stage.

Photo ctsy Baby Gramps

Biscuits & Blues is proud to present ragtime bluesman Baby Gramps on Saturday, May 19th at 8pm and 10pm at the club, 401 Mason Street, San Francisco. Opening both shows will be English singer-songwriter Kyla Brox.

Tickets are $15, the show is all-ages and reservations can be made by phone at (415) 292-BLUES or online at

A combination of busker, poet and bluesman, Baby Gramps has recently gained national attention and a spotlight on the David Letterman Show for his collaboration on a collection of pirate songs produced by Johnny Depp called "Rogue's Gallery" (Anti), a two-disc set of sea chanteys. Gramps' original track "Mermaids" opens the album and that's saying a lot: among the other contributors are Sting, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Bono, a gravel-voiced Bryan Ferry, a midnight-voiced Nick Cave, a twee Van Dyke Parks and Bill Frisell with a beautiful guitar track. See and hear Gramps at

Recent press paints Baby Gramps as a Seattle artist who interprets songs with the impatient philosophy of a deranged chef hastily preparing an unthawed game hen: as long as the meat's there, everyone should be happy at the table. His no-frills, knee-jerk attack, mixed with a staunch refusal to perform a song the same way twice, ensures the beautiful spontaneity that slips through the cracks in a Baby Gramps show. Hacking away at a National steel guitar, he performs a stylistic combination of jazz, blues, folk and sea chanteys with an unconventional singing style defined as much by what is overlooked (timbre, resonance) as what is doted on (throat singing, strange gurglings). Nobody knows exactly how old Baby Gramps is, but everyone who has seen him perform has never forgotten the experience. (North BayBohemian)

Baby Gramps performed on The Late Show with David Letterman Aug. 28, 2006 backed up by Tony Garnier (Bob Dylan's band leader and bass player), The Akron Family, and Jason Krekel from "The Mad Tea Party". He was promoting the "Rogues Gallery; Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys" CD that was produced by Johnny Depp, Gore Verbinski, and Hal Willner in connection with the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. He has two songs on the CD, the very first song, and the only original. On the CD he is backed up by Bill Frisell, Phillip Morgan from The Cutters, and The Akron Family. Some of the other performers on the CD are Bono, Sting, Bob Neuwirth, Bryan Ferry, Bill Frisell, Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson, Nick Cave, Loudon Wainwright III, Rufus Wainwright & Kate McGarrigle, Lucinda Williams, Three Pruned Men, and Lou Reed.

NPR (National Public Radio) All Things Considered interviewed Hal Willner Sept. 19th about "Rogues Gallery" They talked about Baby Gramps and played part of his recording of "Cape Cod Girls". You can hear itat  There is also a link on the Baby Gramps website.

This past summer he was filmed for a documentary about the history of busking produced by John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band). Other performers filmed for the movie include Dylan, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Dave Matthews, Steve Martin, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Ani DiFranco.

OCTAVIA, Photo ctsy Bert Harte
Harpplayer gibt es wie Sand am Meer. Aber keine wie Octavia. Diese außergewöhnliche Künstlerin kommt vom 17.09. – 30.09.2007 auf Tour nach Europa. Vor einigen Jahren war sie bereits 2 Jahre auf Dauertour durch Großbritannien unterwegs.


Wann war das letzte Mal das Sie gemeine Harmonika mit ungewöhnlich langen Tönen gehört haben, emotionsgeladenen powervollen Gesang und Gitarre mit flinken Fingern statt Plektron gespielt und das alles von einer Frau?

Geboren und aufgewachsen in Philadelphia PA. fing
Octavia im Alter von fünf Jahren an Gitarre zu lernen und 1966 kam dann die Harmonika dazu. Octavia machte ihren Abschluß als Maler und Bildhauer an der Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Bo Diddley Health Update: This just in from the Associated Press, 7:30 pm Thursday, May 17, 2007: OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Four days after suffering a stroke, Bo Diddley walked around the intensive-care unit at Creighton University Medical Center, and doctors were encouraged that the singer-song writer-guitarist would be able to perform again, his manager said. The 78-year-old Diddley told his audience that he wasn't feeling well during a show in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Saturday night. Diddley's manager, Margo Lewis, said she had the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer taken to the hospital by ambulance when he appeared disoriented at the Omaha airport on Sunday. Though Diddley's speech is impaired, he's made significant progress.

May 17, 2007

>>>>> Bo Diddley Hospitalized: This just in: Blues and Rock & Roll legend Bo Diddley is in intensive care after suffering a stroke, following a performance in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The AOL entertainment site has this information posted as of this morning:

"Veteran singer and songwriter Bo Diddley is in intensive care after suffering a stroke. The 78-year-old guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was said to be in a "guarded" condition at Creighton University Medical Centre in Omaha, Nebraska, said Susan Clary, a publicist for the musician's management team. Diddley, who has a history of hypertension and diabetes, was taken to hospital on Sunday following a concert in Council Bluffs, Iowa, in which he became disoriented, she said. Tests indicated that the stroke affected the left side of his brain, impairing his speech and speech recognition. Clary said she has no other details on Diddley's condition, or how long he would be in intensive care. Diddley, with his black glasses and low-slung guitar, has been an icon in the music industry since he topped the R&B charts with "Bo Diddley" in 1955. His other hits include "Who Do You Love", "Before You Accuse Me", "Mona" and "I'm a Man". Diddley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and was given a lifetime achievement Grammy in 1998."

Bo Diddley's impact on the world of blues and rock and roll cannot be overstated. Bob Corritore has had a long history with Bo Diddley. Bob regularly organized back-up bands for and performed with Bo when he was coming into Phoenix for concert dates during the 80s and 90s. Bo Diddley also made a guest appearance on Bob Corritore's All-Star Blues Sessions on HighTone Records (a 1999 CD release), where Bo contributed a zesty remake of his classic "Little Girl". Let's hope and pray for a speedy and full recovery for this musical icon whose famous songs are so close to our hearts.

Joe Louis Walker
Multiple Grammy & WC Handy Award winner, Joe Louis Walker is one of the most heralded blues artists of our time. JLW is a true powerhouse guitar virtuoso, unique singer & prolific songwriter who has toured the world religiously throughout his career and earned himself a legion of dedicated fans around the globe. He has recorded with the likes of BB King, James Cotton, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Huey Lewis, Branford Marsalis, Steve Cropper, Shemekia Copeland & Ike Turner, with a discography that counts 18 solo albums, 2 live DVD's, and countless compilations and guest appearances.

Still recording & touring with a vengeance, JLW is already being referred to within the blues world as a "living legend." However, as Walker himself would say, "the best is yet to come!"

Chris Cain
Chris Cain's jazz-tinged, blues soaked guitar and deep, warm vocals have the maturity and authenticity of bluesmen many years his senior. His expressive style is the result of a lifetime of study and the relentless pursuit of music mastery. His passion and intensity are a blend of his mother's Greek ancestry and his father's soulful black heritage.

Through his guitar mastery and remarkable songwriting ability, Chris Cain has established himself as a musical force to be reckoned with. And as San Jose Mercury News music reviewer John Orr writes, "more than anyone else, anywhere, Chris Cain represents the future of the blues."

Shane Dwight Blues Band
In the past 5 years Shane and his band have performed over 1000 shows and has become a Northern California fan favorite. From the MAIN STAGE at the Monterey Blues Festival, to the Main Stage at the Florida "Springing the Blues" Festival, from the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival to the San Diego Blues Festival the band has covered hundreds of festivals. From National television to national radio the bands' CD's have been played on over 220 radio stations worldwide.

The future is bright and the band is excited about the prospects to come!

The Lara Price Band
The Lara Price Band features an All American singer with a sultry stage presence and a voice that demands you're attention - smoky, lonely, sexy, and powerful. It's no wonder her music transcends the blues and crosses a line into music that is unequivocally superb.

The band also features one of the best up & coming guitarist, Ms. Laura Chavez. The band represented the Sacramento Blues Society in the International Blues Challenge held in Memphis, Tennessee this last February.

Strictly For Kicks
Sacramento Blues Society "Band Member" and local favorite, Strictly For Kicks, return for their third appearance at this festival!

Clark Bishop (guitar/vocal/front-man), Jason Haxton (bass), Dirk Van Stralen (lead guitar) and Harry "The Baum" Baumgardner (drums) perform with energy, charisma, talent, and a strong and loyal following.

The Steve Foster Band
The Steve Foster Band is a high energy trio that delivers a top-notch performance every time they take the stage. Mr. Foster sings and plays in a gutsy, fiery style that evokes memories of the best blues/rock stars of days gone by. His honest, no nonsense presentation is a delight to fans of both blues and rock music. Audiences delight in Steve's world class slide guitar skills.

Steve, along with Steve Boutte (bass & vocals) and Skip Murphy (drums) are the host band for the weekly SacBlues Pro Jam at Louie's Lounge in Rancho Cordova.

About Sacramento Blues Society

I just returned from Memphis where I had the pleasure and great honor representing Delmark at the National Blues Music Awards held in May.  Although we didn't return home to Chicago with first place "Handys" in our hands, we had an absolute blast meeting many great blues folk and experiencing a dizzying array of outstanding traditional and contemporary blues from around the country.

The charismatic and lovely Zora Young, up for traditional female artist of the year, put on a powerful and moving performance of her fantastic original song "Toxic!" from "Tore Up From The Floor Up" (DE 784) backed by our talented friends Nick Moss and the Flip Tops with Eddie Taylor, Jr.  Delmark's two highly acclaimed mid '70's live club recordings from Chicago's WXRT UnConcert series, Otis Rush's "Live at Wise Fools Pub" (DE 781) and Junior Wells' "Live at Theresa's" (DE 787) had stiff competition from the John Lee Hooker box set in the historical album of the year category.  Stay tuned for more exciting Delmark releases from this UnConcert series of live Chicago club dates from the seventies!  Two of the legends of that thrilling "Chicago West Side sound" that we all love will make your "soul fixed" by the "master of menacing tone."

Speaking of Chicago blues guitar heroes and the BMA's, a special shout out to our dear friend Lurrie Bell, who was up for guitarist of the year (the outerspace guitar of Hubert Sumlin triumphed.)  Please keep Lurrie in your thoughts and heartfelt prayers in that he has had a devastatingly tough year, losing his long time companion Susan Greenberg and now recently his father, Carey Bell.  Lurrie is doing amazingly well, grateful for his worldwide friends and fans, and especially the music!  Delmark is especially proud and excited about our spankin' new release on DVD and CD from Carey and Lurrie Bell, Getting Up (DVD 1791/DE 791), which was recorded last summer from Rosa's Lounge, Buddy Guy's Legends, and an informal home session at Lurrie's home.  This has got to some of the deepest, most emotional blues you can experience anywhere!  Lurrie pleads "Stand By Me, Lord, help me bear this heavy load"- Amen, Lurrie!

The world renowned Chicago Blues Fest will be happening soon in June with another stellar line up of local and national heavies, including Delmark artists Jimmy Dawkins (June 7, Petrillo), Magic Slim (June 9, Petrillo), Sunnyland Slim tribute with Steve Freund, Bob Stroger, Kenny Smith, Big Time Sarah (June 10, Petrillo), Ken Saydak, Dave Specter with Aron Burton, Aaron Moore , Lurrie Bell, Little Arthur Duncan, Eddie Shaw, and much more!  Make sure you head on over to the clubs after the Fest to catch Little Arthur and the Back Scratchers with special guests, like Little Al Thomas, at Reynold's Lounge at 938 E. 75th on June 9th, as well as Byther Smith, Michael Coleman, Jimmy Johnson, Jimmy Burns, and more at Buddy Guy's Legends!  A special thanks for all of the fantastic airplay and press for the recent Jimmy Burns release, Live at B.L.U.E.S (DE 789/DVD 1789.)

The first ever live release from the Chicago Underground nucleus of Rob Mazurek and Chad Taylor, Chronicle (DVD 1573, DE 573) is Delmark's most ambitious and visually/sonically stimulating DVD yet- "one of the most compelling jazz teams to come from the Chicago scene in the past few decades."- Dusty Groove.  Look for Rob Mazurek to perform at this year's Chicago Jazz Festival where the DVD will also be shown!!  Keefe Jackson's Fast Citizens (Ready Everyday, DE 571) will be performing at the Jazz Fest, as well as Von Freeman, Bill McFarland and the Chicago Horns, Ernest Dawkins (in a salute to Jimmy Ellis), and many more greats.  Make sure you head on over to Fred Anderson's Velvet Lounge to catch the most exciting live jazz in the city.

Kahil El' Zabar's recent release, Ethnic Heritage Ensemble's "Hot 'N' Heavy, Live at the Ascension Loft" is just what the title says and features an all star cast of Corey Wilkes, Ernest Dawkins, and Fareed Haque -"ancient rhythms coupled with forward looking improvisers have made the EHE one of Chicago's jazz treasures for more than a quarter century"- All Music Guide.   Kahil's newest release, Transmigration, (DE 576) is a wild live show with the 39 piece Infinity Orchestra from Bordeaux, France, along with friends, Ernest Dawkins and Joseph Bowie.

Looking ahead to our next DVD/CD recording, we are excited about documenting the Ari Brown Quartet at the world famous Green Mill on June 22, 23. On June 23rd, we will have a very special guest on "electric mud" guitar, Pete Cosey!!  Ari Brown and Pete Cosey are two of the greatest unsung heroes on the Chicago music scene, and we are thrilled about this much anticipated event for a future Delmark release.

A very heartfelt thanks goes out to our friends at Illinois Entertainer magazine who featured Delmark recently after spending a day at the Delmark and Riverside studios finding out how this little ol' family run label has stayed busy for almost 55 years documenting talented jazz and blues artists.

Carey Bell RIP 1936-2007

May 15, 2007

>>>>> What a week: After an amazingly busy week filled with travel back and forth to Memphis, the 2007 Blues Music Awards, the Delta Groove Revue, three recording sessions (one with Diunna Greenleaf and the Bob Margolin Band and two with Tomcat Courtney), a photo shoot, a radio interview, and gigs with Bob Margolin with Diunna Greenleaf, Big Pete Pearson, and Tomcat Courtney, we finally can settle down enough to resume the newsletter.

>>>>> Big Joe Duskin passes: Cincinnati Blues pianist and vocalist Big Joe Duskin left us on Sunday, May 8, 2007. We found out about this after we sent out the notice of Carey Bell's passing (Big Joe and Carey passed away on the same day), and we were unable to send out a news blast in a timely fashion, as we were preparing for travel. For a complete bio on Big Joe Duskin, please refer to the Yellow Dog Records web site by clicking here. Bob had the pleasure of sitting next to Big Joe in 2005 at the Hall Of Fame dinner the night before the Handy Awards (now called Blues Music Awards). Click here to see a photo of Big Joe at that event.

>>>>> Last Week's Trip To Memphis: After flying in Tuesday night, Kim and I settled into our room at the Memphis Marriott in preparation of the busy week ahead. We started our activities Wednesday with a lunch at Automatic Slim's with our friend Steve Simon, best known as the person behind the St. John Blues Festival in the Virgin Islands, and also a board member of the Blues Foundation. Afterwards, we stopped in to the Blues Foundation office to say "hi" to Executive Director Jay Sieleman. Then, we headed back to the hotel, where the lobby seemed to be the hangout. That night we attended the Charter Members Dinner, which was also the awards presentation for the Blues Hall Of Fame. As was typical of the entire trip, this was a great reunion of longtime blues friends, and an introduction to some new ones. The event was hosted by blues radio heroes Bob Porter and Bill Wax, who were consummate emcees. The night featured memorable speeches by inductees Bobby Blue Bland, Dave Bartholomew, Dr. John, Dick Waterman, Scott Dirks, Ward Gaines, and Mark Carpentieri. We sat with Bob Auerbach (of HighJohn Records) and Johnny Tucker on one side of us, and Pat Morgan and Pinetop Perkins on the other. It was also great to see Mary Lockwood (Robert Jr.'s widow), who we had not seen since the funeral (though we have kept in touch by phone). It was especially exciting to see our close friend Scott Dirks (along with Ward Gaines) accept the award for Classics of Blues Literature for the Little Walter biography, Blues With A Feeling. Click here for a complete list of all the Blues Hall Of Fame inductees from this year's event.

The next morning began with a photo shoot for the new Dave Riley and Bob Corritore CD, which will be called Travelin' The Dirt Road, and will be out later this year on Blue Witch Records. Dave said he knew a pretty little dirt road just 20 minutes outside of Memphis in Walls, Mississippi (just before Tunica). Jen Taylor and Scott Allen were the photographers, and Dave was cracking us all up with his rowdy humor. From there, we went back to the hotel, where we attended a press conference for this year's nominees. It was especially great to see so many of our close friends up there on the nominees panel (Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Bob Stroger, Janiva Magness, and on and on). Please note that while all this is going on, you could not get from one place to the other without saying hello to at least 20 people (the mark of a great party gathering). Then, Big Pete and I enjoyed a half-hour interview with Charlie Hussey for his radio program called Blues Train in Dublin, Ireland, Then, it was off to the Blues Music Awards, a wild marathon party where people from all parts of the industry gather (artists, promoters, club owners, publicists, labels, radio show hosts, journalists, festivals, managers, producers and, most importantly, fans). The night was filled with award presentations, speeches, live music by every sub-genre in the blues and a memorial section. We sat at the table with Big Pete Pearson, Candye Kane, Bill Stuve, and others which was a blast. Dave Riley was also in attendance. It was great to see all the respect and recognition that Big Pete was shown as a result of his current release I'm Here Baby, on Blue Witch Records In this year's memorial section our fallen heroes were remembered with a slide presentation. It was sad to say goodbye to so many including Floyd Dixon, Robert Lockwood, Jr., Carey Bell, Big Joe Duskin, Homesick James, Henry Townsend, Tina Mayfield, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Ruth Brown, Ahmet Ertegun, Paul deLay, Clifford Antone, H-Bomb Ferguson, and our beloved Chico Chism (who was the final goodbye in the presentation). Among the highlight performances that night. a rowdy, sexy show-stopper by Bobby Rush complete with his big-booty dancing girls, a touching ballad by Irma Thomas backed by Marcia Ball on the piano, a deep country blues performance by John Long, a stompin' set of Chicago Blues by Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials, A tight soul revue led by The Jackie Payne/Steve Edmondson Band with guests Johnny Rawls, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Frankie Lee, and more, a great harmonica romp with Mark Hummel, Kim Wilson, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Johnny Dyer, Mitch Kashmar, and Magic Dick, a great Chicago blues set by Nick Moss & The Fliptops with guests Zora Young, Eddie Taylor Jr., and many more. The big winner of the night was Charlie Musslewhite, who took home four awards. Robert Lockwood, Jr. won Traditional Blues Male Artist Of The Year, and Mary Lockwood was there to receive it. Willie "Big Eyes" Smith got Best Blues Drummer, Eddie Shaw got Best Blues Horn player, Hubert Sumlin got best blues guitar, and Mookie Brill got the Blues Bass award. Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials received the Best Blues Bands award. It was great to see my friend Janiva Magness win Contemporary Blues Female Artist Of the Year for the second year in a row. To see a complete list of winners click here. The 2007 Blues Music Awards was a memorable and historic night. Special thanks to The Blues Foundation's Executive Director Jay Sieleman, and everyone who works behind the scenes to put on this event.

The next day was all about the Second Annual Delta Groove All-Star Blues Revue. The event was sub-titled "West Coast Meets Chicago", as it combined the roster of artists from Delta Groove Music with that of Blue Bella Records out of Chicago (run by Nick and Kate Moss). Delta Groove chief Randy Chortkoff and his team put together a well organized, musically amazing showcase that include non-stop great performances from start to finish (all tough, no fluff). The event was co-hosted by Bill Wax, of XM Satellite Radio’s Bluesville Station and Brett Flemming of WEVL 89.9 (Memphis). This was a player's event and Big Pete Pearson and I were honored to be among the great list of featured performers which also included The Mannish Boys (with the all star lineup of Finis Tasby, Johnny Dyer, Kid Ramos, Paris Slim, Bobby Jones, Kirk Fletcher, Tom Leavey, Richard Innes, Leon Blue, and Randy Chortkoff who played some great Jimmy Reed-style harp in the set). Nick Moss & The Fliptops with guests Eddie Taylor Jr. and Bill Lupkin (former Jimmy Rogers harp player), The Hollywood Blue Flames (featuring killer harp by Big Al Blake, the legendary Larry Taylor on bass, and a great unscheduled appearance by Kim Wilson), Mitch Kashmar (playing masterful, definitive West Coast harmonica), Kilborn Alley Blues Band, Johnny Long, and The Jackie Payne/Steve Edmondson Band. So many great harmonica players were in the audience of this event, including Memphis kingpin Billy Gibson, Scott Dirks, Manu from the French blues band Malted Milk, R.J. Mischo, Dave Gonzalez (Chicago Blues Angels), and more. It was also great to see my dear friend Wesley Race at this event. Big Pete and I were given prime time as we ended The Mannish Boys' set, with two well-received numbers, complete with top-notch backing. Thanks to Randy, Frank, Josh, Kate, Nick, and everyone at Delta Groove and Blue Bella for their kindness and generosity in allowing us on this fantastic show. For a look at this event's show poster now up in the photo section of, click here. Photos from the showcase, as well as the Blues Music Awards, will be added to the website soon!

>>>>> Chief Schabuttie Gilliame Health Update: The Chief is still hospitalized, but is slowly recovering. He was transferred from Phoenix Baptist Hospital to the Arizona Heart Institute, where he is getting more specific help and will hopefully be released later this week. Chief Schabuttie Gilliame suffered a heart attack with complications from a respiratory infection a few weeks ago. A thank you goes out to the many musicians and fans, and to organizer Tommy Grills, who participated in a fundraiser for Chief last Sunday at the Rhythm Room.

>>>>> Press Recognition: Thanks to Blues Revue Magazine, whose latest issue (June/July) includes glowing reviews of Big Pete Pearson's I'm Here Baby on Blue Witch Records (by Eric Thom) and Chico Chism's West Side Chicago Blues Party (by Michael Cala), as well as remembering Paul deLay and Chico Chism in their obituary section (by Kenneth Bays). Thanks also to the always supportive Blueswax (a great on-line blues magazine) for numerous mentions. Thanks to Vicente "Harmonica" Zumel, who has been featuring Big Pete on his radio show. Look for a forthcoming interview with Big Pete Pearson in Living Blues Magazine.

Note that last week's show was pre-recorded in advance to allow the trip to Memphis, so it did not reflect the recent passings. Carey Bell's music as a frontman and a sideman will be included throughout the show, with last hour being completely devoted to highlights of this stunning artist's huge body of recorded work. Also featured will be a tribute to the late Big Joe Duskin, some reflections on the Blues Music Awards, as well as the music of the late Chico Chism, who would have been 80 years old on May 23, 2007 (A musical birthday tribute to Chico happens May 23, 2007 at the Rhythm Room with many special guests).

Hallo Sissy & Fritz,

Bluestrain gibt bekannt, das wir ab sofort mit Markma Music in der Schweiz eine
Zusammenarbeit vereinbart haben.
Markma Booking wird in der Schweiz und Österreich das Booking für die Bluestrain Künstler unterstützen bzw. übernehmen und Bluestrain anderseits wiederum für die Künstler von Markma in Deutschland und Benelux.

Nach der erfolgreichen Tour von Eddie Turner im März diesen Jahres, läuft nunmehr die Planung für die Herbsttour 2007 für diesen aussergewöhnlichen Künstler.
Die vorgesehenen Termine sind von Mitte Oktober bis Mitte November 2007.
Österreich und die Schweiz sind für den Zeitraum vom 05.11. bis 11.11.07 geplant, können aber auf Wunsch auch verlängert bzw. der Beginn um einige Tage nach vorne oder nach hinten verlegt werden.

Herzliche Grüße vom Niederrhein

Crown & Glory“… back at Bluesiana,the hottest Live Music Spot !!!!
Am “Crossroad” die Seele verkauft ?
Im Sound der Band aus L.A. verbindet sich himmlischer Gospel und dämonischer Swamp Rock: Engel links, Teufel rechts. So präsentiert sich Jimmie Wood, Frontman der Band, mit seiner Reibeisenstimme und kann in punkto Coolness es locker mit Willy DeVille aufnehmen. In einer Mischung aus Diva, Groschenluder und Zahnstocher- Charly tänzelt er um das Mikrofon und liefert die beste Live Performance die Sie je gesehen haben. Heiß wie in einer Südstaatenkirchengemeinde, in der er nur noch eine letzte Chance erhalten hat, den verlorenen Seelen das Heil zu predigen!

Mittwoch, 23. Mai 2007, 20.30 Uhr!

Endlich kommt Guy Davis, der Zaubermann an den Saiten, wieder ins Bluesiana. Für Guy war 2006 ein sehr erfolgreiches Jahr. Er wurde zum „Accoustic Blues Artist of the Year 2007“ nominiert und seine aktuelle CD „Skunkmellow“ überall in den Listen der besten Blues Alben des Jahres aufgenommen und für 2007 als „Accoustic Blues Album of the Year“ benannt. Der in New York geborene Guy Davis ist einer der aufregendsten Blues Musiker der Gegenwart. Er ist ein Allround Talent, der auch als Theater Schauspieler Karriere gemacht hat. Sein Name ist Garant für ein fesselndes Live-Konzert mit allerhöchstem Qualitätsanspruch. „Er fasst das Auditorium bei der Hand und nimmt es mit auf einen Trip durch Raum und Zeit. Guy Davis, das ist Blues fernab aller Allüren, Musik, die durch sich selber wirkt. Wahrlich ein Highlight in der neuen Welt!“ Guy Davis: vocals, guitar, Mark Murphy: electric upright Bass,vocals,Roth Nerak Patterson: electric guitar.

Americana/Alternative Country

Bei den Songs der Wiener Americana-band „Lost Compadres“ trifft Hank Williams auf U2 und Johnny Cash wartet auf den letzten Zug Richtung nirgendwo. Letzterem huldigen die Compadres alljährlich im Rahmen der “no cash no hope“ Tributekonzerte quer durch Österreich.
Das Quintett tritt den Beweis an, daß man nicht aus Texas kommen muß, um authentisch zu klingen und daß Country nicht gleich Lagerfeuerromantik bedeutet. Sprödes Singer/Songwritertum liegt den Compadres fern, hier darf gerockt und auch geweint werden – wie einst im schaurigen, traurigen wilden Westen....
Lost Compadres sind: Fünf Herren mit 3 Stimmen, 6 Gitarren, Schlagzeug, Bass und einer Pedal-Steel-Guitar.
