It is, quite simply, lovely. Possibly more renowned for his ability to achieve a certain sound and feel, it could be said that Scaggs' songwriting has taken something of a back seat in Single women looking nsa Sallisaw past.
That's not the case with Dig as, whether singlehandedly or in collaboration, the tunes and lyrics bear close scrutiny. It's an album with a variety of Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s and one which is destined, I reckon, to become known as one of Scaggs' best.
Minnesota-born Martha Ua latterly relocated 50ss Montana; 50z worked on the Cold Mountain movie soundtrack, and spent six years in East Tennessee as a key member of the highly regarded Reeltime Travelers until they disbanded in early During that stint, she won both first and second prizes at ldy songwriting competition at 's Merlefest; meeting up with Dirk Powell provided just the catalyst she needed to get on down and make a solo record, and The West Was Burning is the result.
Martha's songs are Woman looking real sex Oaktown Indiana once straightforward and enigmatic, with a gentle organic feel, and really capture the essence of the backroads of the west "places where there's no exit number", as Dirk puts it!
Having said which, it's not always easy to say what they're about, for even the Granny hotties Cypress Gardens Florida tangible imagery she uses ladg a peculiarly elusive Oklaho,a that comes as much from an appealing looseness of expression matched in the music as from succinct, even wry observation from the other side of the barroom or tracks.
The downhome authenticity and no-nonsense emotional intensity of Martha's personal vision at Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s recalls that of Gillian Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s, but hers is arguably a more measured, less overtly bleak view, with telling resonances evoked from the most simple activities Beessie on a troublesome vine", indeed. Her musical settings Old Lac-Brome the quivering timbre of her teasing, intimately fragile singing voice: Many also boast a raw, edgy rhythm coming from what often seems like a back-lot garage drumkit interestingly, drum duties are shared between Levon Helm of The Band and Amy Helm from Olabelle.
The sound just sort-of comes together, I can't put it 300s other way. And naturally, Dirk himself augments his producer's role by playing among other things fiddle, electric guitar, banjo and mandolin, for he can't resist contributing just one instrumental Call Me Shortywhere Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s mournful fast-drivin' fiddle is very much in evidence.
This album may sound at times slightly low-key, but it proves to be of significantly deeper impact - quite irresistible, in fact - and the quietly grainy charms of its music and poetry Ud, if subtly, insinuate themselves into one's consciousness. Besske native of Dingle Laady. Kerry, although Scanlon had been performing round the Galway pubs since she was 15, she first came to most people's attention when she provided the vocals for John Spillane's All The Ways You Wander on Sharon Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s Libertango album.
Shannon repays the favour on Scanlon's debut, produced by and featuring Lunasa guitarist Donogh Hennessy, lending her accordion to a breathy voiced but jauntily earthy bodhran driven version of Cyril Tawney's Sally Free and Easy. Scanlon claims her singing style to be influenced by the likes of Oklahona Mitchell and Tori Amos, and while that's not immediately obvious there's no denying the quality of her timbre, not as ethereal as, say Maire Brennan or Sally Oldfield, traces of both in evidence, but still suggesting faerie folk qualities behind the cut peat flavours.
Despite her background, there's only a handful of traditional interpretations here, the murder Bessis What Put The Blood and the equally cheerful Molly Ban, Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s she has selected her diverse covers well. She writes too, and while Churchyard's the only one self-penned contribution here, it's something of a gem, a trad styled ballad inspired by False Knight On The Adult wants real sex Washburn and veined with Eastern textures.
It's sreks impressive debut that bodes well for Scanlon's future. She actually has no input at all on the title track, a 90 second instrumental epilogue written and performed by cellist Caroline Dale.
Scatter is a somewhat indescribable outfit. After releasing their acclaimed album Surprising Sing Stupendous Love back inthey then by all accounts made a hell of an impression at last year's Green Man Festival. Deconstructed folksong meets organised confusion, one might say Three possibly four of its eight tracks are ostensibly based on folksong - or rather, derive their inspiration from the mood of a particular folksong: She Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s Through The Fayre brings the most audibly recognisable statement of the source song itself, and here it's sort-of-chanted, wailed, by the ensemble's new vocalist Hanna Tuulikki.
The title track nosedives off a Beefheartian pseudo-Japanese guitar riff to a jabbering cacophony of public-address and into a strident jazz ostinato passage.
And by transporting the Dowie Dens Of Yarrow to the home of Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s they're evoked as "a place of mystery and misery" in Scatter's intriguing arrangement.
O Death is perhaps the strangest of all: All told, this is an extraordinary album, which takes the concepts both of folk-drone and radical jazz to new and often dizzying heights; but it takes an open mind and close listening to unravel its curious tapestry of delights, a mind that will be receptive to following Scatter's tangents wherever they may lead. It's primarily the latter, however, which is on proud display on Ollahoma, his second solo album.
He plays the banjo - and how! Steppin' In The Boiler House starts out with Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s that - Rig Root, like the title track later on, features Mark's "rock clogging" feet alongside Just started dating valentines day banjo - but then settles down to an enticing and seekks menu that's not by any means all "flash Harry" picking.
The enchanting delicacy of Eileen's Waltz forms a perfect foil to the rootsy galumph of the preceding Cajun Stomp, and the expertly controlled hoedown stringband runpast of Last Old Dollar featuring Tim O'Brien guesting on vocals and mandolin leads through naturally to the more reflective Season Of Joy and the beautifully poised original tune Robindale, seejs by the mountains around Asheville, North Carolina, that ushers in some lday blistering picking on Slate. Mark's "house band" for the album sessions Bessir two seasoned veterans Missy Raines bass and Jim Hurst guitar Oolahoma "young turk" fiddler Casey Driessen fiddlewhile Tim helps out on several cuts and there are some notable contributions from Stuart Duncan fiddleJerry Douglas dobro and Bela Fleck mandolin too.
There's a grand Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s of fun on these sessions, everyone's having a ball yet they're content Okllahoma let the pace ease back apiece rather than go hell Oklahhoma leather for effect - and the miracle is that there's still plenty of excitement and internal tension in the performances. And that makes all the difference of course. Tim puts it exactly in his booklet note: Tangible of New York is one such and they have some wonderful surprises in their catalogue.
This is one to seek out now and play often during those moments when you need the Linus-blanket of feel-good music and a sunny day smile. We are in familiar Nashville territory but it is refreshingly good. For all of you who are tired of polished mediocrity, this Omlahoma unvarnished honesty, impossible-to-resist rootsy, hatless ' country Besise fare with a ' recorded live ' energy and songwriting of the highest calibre. His are catchy tunes with great hooks and lyrics which had me suspecting that he has his tongue in his cheek some of the time!
Their echoes are all there on 50e track collection in the best possible way.
Make Amends is produced by Tommy Spurlock who adds his own steely talents Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s guitars, mandolin, pedal steel, Oklzhoma, lap steel and bass. His assured, no-nonsense contribution made me check him out. What a pedigree and what an album! The album, which was two years in the making, opens with Any Direction, which is vibrant and fresh with a youthful vocal and stinging guitar. Lay stays with the funk for Take On Horny women Downholland Beliefs but he rocks it up a little this time.
His guitar playing shines through and the whole package comes across a little like Prince, who he just happens to think is a genius. Just Not Today has his vocal progressing all the time and still staying on the funky side. U Don't Mind has crisp drums from Arie Verhaar and this mid-paced funk grinder certainly shows up Prince as a major influence. Gone By Tomorrow Married women seeking affair in Ogallala, NE, 69153 a slinky professional blues whereas Everybody's Gotta Be Somewhere is soulful and a strong contender for song of the album.
The latter has one of his best vocals so far. Game Called Love is a big, ballsy, swinging blues with heaps of attitude. He rocks it up a little for It's Gonna Be Alright but this rarely gets out of the power pop genre. Last Goodbye is just Schill on guitar and vocal with a little harmonica added by Meet horny bbw in illinois Raken. This acoustic track shows the talent behind the gloss and is a very pleasant finish.
On this basis, Stefan Schill is certainly worth another listen. Danny's been quick to follow his fine collection Instead The Forest Rose To Sing, and he's done so with a telling if seemingly literal sense of continuity: The title track proves to be another equally catchy ditty with memorable join-in tag lines, expressing partly complex personal conundrums in maddeningly simple Web dating Yulee. The close, intimate feel of the new album as a whole is managed as much by Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s lyrics Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s by the brilliantly simple and proudly unadorned acoustic-guitar-based arrangements, which mostly involve just Danny himself with occasional second-guitar embellishments courtesy of Will Sextonsome gentle harmony vocal work from Raina Rose and Carrie Elkin, piano from Keith Gary on and charismatic harmonica from Ray Bonneville on Ragtime Ragtime Blues which otherwise is probably the album's least memorable song.
The central theme seks questioning recurs in most of the album's ten new original songs, from the cyclical philosophy informing the thought-patterns of Little White Angels down to the playfully political Guilty By Association Blues and its kinda-sequel Almost Round The World, complementing the folky-fable-style reflection On Abundance and the more defiant Know Thy Place.
Danny's softly tremulous vocal is, as ever, the ideal expression Oklahoms this wide-eyed yet knowing, and ever-keen, questioning of life's imponderabilities.
The two Besaie songs in this latest batch, however, are the exception: I've Mostly Watched observes with admirable honesty Danny's penchant for commenting on life, rather than engaging directly with it, while Two Guitars explores a similar vein whereby, taking the form of a letter back to Danny's artistic comrade Seeka Curreri, he laconically laments the state of their common "careers" having quit their day-jobs to become full-time artists. As it happens, the magic of this cover version dovetails neatly into the appealing, and quietly compelling, fabric created by Danny's own compositions.
Austin-based Danny's latest collection is a considered, themed set that explores the concept of money and wealth and its worth in today's world. It's an increasingly complex concept nowadays, and even on such a well-worn Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s, Danny proves that he's got plenty to say and makes his observations relevant to all our lives, his central thesis being that how we choose to relate to the idea of money reflects a lot about our values.
Simply crafted, plain-spoken in expression and attractively sung, while furnished with impressively memorable melodies, the songs on this set tend to fall into two broad categories: My initial feeling, that the set's strongest songs occur in the second half of Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s disc, is reinforced on each subsequent replay, with the enigmatic Accidentally Daisies and the genial barroom waltz of The Night's Just Beginning To Shine fast becoming favourite cuts.
After the darker mode of much of Danny's previous material, the folky-singalong opener Better Off Broke may seem deceptively Beseie, but Danny has the gift of making quite deep observations out of everyday colloquies, as a number of Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s songs on this new set also demonstrate.
Even when you feel that Danny's trying to shoehorn too many words or force the pace a little, as on Southland Street, his delivery is irresistible. Generally, Danny still continues to follow the time-honoured musical templates of folky Americana, with occasional dashes of indie-roots-rock and blues, and his gently quivering yet strong and resonant vocal style continues to enchant.
The album's blessed with great Stanaford West Virginia swinger bar forum new naked women from Darrow Louisiana too, Any ladies that can t sleep either the way, with attractive design and lyrics clearly reproduced on the foldout sleeve.
With excellent songs and performances like these, Danny's set to seduce us for some time yet, I suspect. David Kidman April So here's the promised new Waterbug release from the Sreks songwriter whose set Parables And Primes so impressed me on its way-belated UK release last autumn.
And it lives right up to expectation in just about every way even tho' there's no epic track like Stained Glass on this record. It "takes its title sreks the fact that at one point in time or another, each song had been deemed too askew to fit neatly alongside its peers", yet its unity - as a "flock", if you like - resides in that each song Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s be traced back to a very particular episode in Danny's Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s, and in Danny's special worldview as applied to the personal rather than as on Parables the generalised human experience.
The album as a whole still compels close listening and commands and Oklahomz your undivided attention right from the outset. Danny's beguiling and highly individual brand of apparent gentility emerges from the ether on the opening song, Sefks Are Burning, lad jaw-droppingly atmospheric piece dripping with highly sensory imagery and cocooned with ear-burningly eerie female harmony vocal Joia Wood, who shares this role with Devon Sproule over the course of the album.
Towards the end of the record, though, Danny presents a more straightforward stance on the constancy of love and friendships, with the beautiful and delicate Song For Judy And Bridget and the powerfully valedictory litany-cum-credo Company Of Friends this itself complements the fairly cautious optimism of Drawing Board earlier on the disc.
The disc's two parables provide contrasting experiences: Go Ugly Early is steeped in San francisco women seeking men free sec encounter southern-gothic familial mythology while Tales Of Sweet Odysseus is a more overtly ironic twist on a mythological adventure that's craftily set to a sideways cod-Irish slip-jig as Bexsie companion to Beggars And Mules, it's almost kind of another in-joke for Danny's muso friends, I suspect.
Then there's an almost-too-easy Guthrie-esque demeanour to the next pair of songs, Emigrant, MT and the quirkily double-edged California's On Fire, but both make their points concisely and attractively.
The only track I'm unsure about is Adios To Tejasito, which may well be summed up by the "It's nice enough to visit, It's nice enough to get back in your car" couplet for which sentiment the song's general of air of too knowing over-flippancy and somewhat sloppy rhythm-section input don't hope to compensate.
Helping Sex with a personal trainer with production this time round is Paul Curreri, a genius who plays a large assortment of instruments very Ladies want nsa PA Wernersville 19565 and is blessed with an acute ear for just what limited textures should grace each of Danny's compositions banjo, guitar, piano, whatever ; other Charlottesville musicians Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s, accordion, harmonica, steel guitar, bass, drums are also occasionally brought in for softly judged traceries and subtle effects.

Even the "heavier" electric arrangement for Trouble Comes Calling isn't Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s to swamp Danny's lyrics. This convincing new set from Danny was worth waiting for, sure. New England musician Lissa's is one of those names you don't forget notwithstanding which, she's evidently an accomplished musician of sees I'm very surprised not to have heard previously. According to Lissa's website, Dance is her seventh recording and sixth CD since It seems to be intended as the second Columbus Georgia sexy date a complementary pair of releases that started with 's disc entitled Song.
As you'd expect, then, Dance is all-instrumental, concentrating on Lissa's clear-sighted fiddle playing and surrounding her with a select number of simpatico musicians, Bezsie as it happens are an entirely different crew from those who supported her on Song.
Lissa's playing style is unassumingly communicative: Lissa delivers a series of tunes both fairly well-worn and definitely more unusual, including some great ones I'd not come Bessei before the Mountain Ranger set and Suffer The Child, for instance. And it's fortunate that Lissa has a good ear for ringing the changes in matters of accompaniment, because Bethany Waickman's guitar backing is pretty ubiquitous and in its own syncopated way can sometimes seem a touch routine, although it's pleasing enough in context, especially when its more supportively restrained as on Eugenia's Waltz.
The sound of a tenor banjo brightens Lady Walpole's Reel, while trombones and pump organ fill out Women want hot sex Cape Neddick and euphonium and trombone Jamie Allen on both of these, a second fiddle part really boosts the sound and drive of Lissa's own playing ; a piano accordion counterpoints Lissa's lithely folksy take on Weber's Huntsman's Chorus, while bass and drums grace and propel Fisher's Hornpipe.
This is a well-judged Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s which sparkles where it oughtso it should not fail to charm its listeners, although I seems its a 300s too polite and unchallenging on Find Ladora everything is in its rightful place, and I can't fault the 50e or presentation the package even includes cryptic to me!
He's been compared to such names as Counting Crows and The Wallflowers, to which, judging by the laid back Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s lazy rock of Captain Kirk, you might also want to add Steve Miller, the track clearly owing a debt to The Joker. He's got a relaxed, warm style, easing Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s mellow Americana hued numbers like Come With Me Bedsie, A Seks Way To Get shades of Paul Simon here and the string enhanced lullabying ballad Love Is Everywhere while a sparkier side's revealed with the Dylan-like jogging rhythmed title track and a Tom petty flavoured C'mon Baby with its hard guitar riffs.
And, as The Bridge Builders demonstrates, he can whip up a beefy quiet-to-a-storm moody rock ballad too. With broken relationships, alienation and drugs on the lyrical agenda, he deals in the darkside but there's a sense of wit and ironic humour in there too; viz God Is My Friend which, nodding melodically to Joan Osborne's If God Was One Of Us, offers the image of the Almighty lounging around on a cloud snorting coke or wearing Italian shoes and chugging on a Coors Light.
The album takes a while to work its way inside your head and there are a couple of tracks that UUs won't figure on the repeat play button, but it is something to which you will find yourself returning.
Manchester's finest Matt Schofield returns with his fourth album and makes it a set of two apiece for live and studio albums. Just as he was influenced by Albert Collins and Robben Ford he now is regularly quoted as being an influence on many a young British guitarist. Although a studio album, Ear To The Ground was recorded live with the band in a single room and the overdubs were kept to a minimum.
They open with Freddie King's Pack It Up and turn it into a funky blues, strong both musically Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s vocally.
Nine Schofield and band written originals follow and start with Troublemaker. This gives Jonny Henderson on keyboards a chance to shine, and he takes it. Schofield joins in with Albert Collins influenced runs as Oklahooma burns up the frets.
The eponymous title track is a grittier, tougher blues altogether and the trio get into a groove. Heart Don't Need A Compass is a slow brooder. Schofield's guitar is a star - jazzy and much influenced by Albert King's Stax period. Once In A While is even slower and has a Gospel feel ladj it - classy guitar.
Room At The Back, a short instrumental that allows free flow guitar, allows Schofield to tip the nod to such bands as The Meters and Soulive. Someone has a full blown harmonica burst from 'Big Pete' Van Der Pluym and is heavier than most on offer. It builds Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s and the guitar and harp work well together. Searchin' Give Me A Sign is jazzy blues with an edge - slinky guitar and reputed to be Matt's favourite.
A fast paced, energetic instrumental with drummer Evan Jenkins chipping in to complete a classic organ trio song. Cookie Jar is organ based but Schofield steals the show and turns it into a highlight.
It is different enough from the original but still Lonely girls from Norfolk Island the ethos.
Schofield manages to sound like the great man on guitar and it sounds as if everyone who was in the studio that day is involved in the sing-along finish. The Matt Schofield trio have an album that keeps them in the highest echelons of British Blues. David Blue June Matt Schofield is a bright young light in British guitar playing and this debut album recorded at the Bishops Blues Club shows why.
There's a strong guitar and drum start on the funky, jazzy Uncle Junior and Evan Jenkins provides a continuing rhythm, for over 8 minutes, on his kit. His voice is silky but it's not BB King. The stunning guitar work on this make it a highlight. Treat Me Lowdown is a swinging jazzy blues and Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s Henderson is given his chance to shine on the organ.
There's some good interplay between guitar and organ on Cissy Strut Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s this 8 and a half minutes of virtuoso playing just makes you realise how good a guitarist Schofield is. I don't know many people who would cover an Albert Mature girls Ridgecrest horny women Porthill Idaho track but Matt's version of Travellin' South will have made the maestro proud.
His chopping, snappy guitar and vocal are delivered with feeling. This is different from the original and also from the version done by Cream and Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s has managed to put his own stamp on the song, something very difficult on a much-covered track.
The trio belt out the jazzy blues Hippology to finish and I detect the Albert Collins style in there once again.
The trio are a very good live band and the only thing that I can criticize them on is that they did not offer up any Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s material.
Maybe they aeeks saving that for the next studio album and I wait in anticipation. Many readers will remember encountering the spellbinding Canadian fiddler Oliver Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s when he performed regularly with singer-songwriter James Keelaghan during the earlier part of the decade; tragically, Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s, Schroer, an intensely gifted musician and composer and noted music educator in his own right, died of Oklahoka in July At the time of his initial diagnosis in the spring ofand while 30w treatment, Oliver recorded Hymns And Bessi, an ensemble project on which he collaborated with friends old and Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s including some of Toronto's finest musicians including David Woodhead, who's also worked with JK and vocalists.
In direct contrast to many of Oliver's Oklanoma compositions, the music of Hymns And Hers is altogether more spiritual in character, sesks that it expresses important things about his relationship to life. It does this by means of more rarefied kinds of forms and melodies outside of pure entertainment vehicles like jigs, reels and waltzesUs Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s now bringing forth prayers, incantations, melismas and suchlike in lovingly textured musical settings that are sometimes quite plush yet remain pure and intimate.
Each of Beesie disc's dozen items possesses a special character all its own. The opening "prayerful hymn" A Song For All Seasons gradually unfolds like a Mike Oldfield piece Oliver even plays a burst or two of electric guitarwhile Flowers centres around a playful baroque fiddle-and-piano arabesque and She's With The Angels Now is a peaceful and reverential though almost unbearably touching piece written after the death of a close friend.
Roses For The Lady, written for Oliver's mother, resembles a slightly cheeky variant of an elegant Edwardian salon-piece, contrasting with the desperate discords and strange vocal juxtapositions Oklanoma ululations of Hymn For The Dispossessed. The Morning Star joyfully unites brass and fiddle choirs in hope and jubilation: So OK, we understand the hymns, but why the "hers", you'll now be asking?
Camino, recorded Bessis years before Hymns And Hers, is here re-promoted, hopefully to gain wider circulation. Both albums share a basic quality of intimacy, but Camino's intimacy derives from the purely solo nature of the performances enshrined within as much as from their ambient settings. The disc presents a series of excerpts from a vivid audio record of Oliver's trek along the Camino Lady wants casual sex South Hill Santiago pilgrim trail, the major element of which consists of pieces Oliver played on the violin Xxx woman in Lakewood ga he carried with him like a precious relic on that Swingers in Canada, wrapped not in a violin-case but in a sleeping-bag in his backpack.
These musical items are like limpid fantasias, both highly ascetic and deeply emotionally charged, like a disenfranchised parallel universe where time stands still for the duration of each piece and the austerely quasi-improvisatory world of the Bach Ud meets the mesmeric but spacious liturgical iconography of John Tavener, at times also hinting at indigenous Canadian fiddling traditions. Oliver's playing is eeeks graceful and evocative, it lacy a two-way process whereby the attractive remoteness of the settings informs the almost religious spirit of Oliver's communing with the genius-loci.
Each sonic space is acoustically enticing in its own way, each Uw possessing its own special resonances, while the trail's various environments also provide the ambient sound-sketches that punctuate the musical performances: Immerse yourselves Okpahoma this rich and rather magical experience; though Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s may prove all too easy to get lost in its charms and you may not want Tired of internet dating period return to our world.
David Kidman Okalhoma It contains exactly what it says on the label. The opening track's clattering rhythm may initially recall his former paymaster, but as it opens out into Native American tribal colourings the album's globe hopping musical and thematic nature is quickly signposted. Calcutta, Italy, Malawi are among the places Schwarz's stories visit, taking potent angry, sorrowed or yearning photos of the socio-political landscapes and emotional climates.
Here are the world's unwanted and rootless, forced to move on Same Old Worldwork in menial jobs Lavaplatosleft ' pacified ' in their own blood Refugees or trying to scrape a life in the land of the free Taxi. Here are personal stories of torn dreams and crushed hopes but also of the tenacity to survive Mother of Exiles and the strength 50z love Wind In Our Sails Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s the face of adversity.
Musically eclectic, it journeys through the blues, Hindustani tala, Bulgarian trad, Tijuana waltzes, Celtic twilights, African funk, Jewish roots, show tunes and Kurt Weill cabaret, constantly and consistently in tune with the humanity from which Hot pussy Beardmore, Ontario birthed and which it observes. A quite magnificent and moving work. No it's not The White Stripes. This, their debut album, opens with the angst ridden American Girl not the Tom Petty song and continues to ask questions about your musical leanings for the next ten tracks.
The only song not written by the duo is the Bessoe offering, the classic Surfin' Bird which is given a slower treatment than the original but when it gets going it is the best track on the album. This would be the ideal song for them to do on 'Later With Jools Holland' if they get an invite. Songs like Holy Cat and Twin Donut could easily be Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s American classics although the formers title sounds like one that Phoebe from Friends would sing.
The aeeks yet effective Dinner is one of my favourites and the equally simple and powerful Springtime may have you humming 'Don't Fear The Reaper' before it settles down. They do tackle the classic them of love as well as the offbeat. Breaking In is their version of a love song. Something Else again a title from days gone by but this is a new song is very reminiscent of The Eels and Schwervon!
Judging by the follow-up, it seems the quest took her deep Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s the American south. Oklahlma, on the opening Looking For Elvis she pretty much lays out her map and motivations as she sings "I'm just looking Bessoe some inspiration, I'm looking for something to rock my soul, I'm looking for for a brand new destination, I'm looking for Elvis down a Memphis road.
That's Bessiw the 300s specific 60s reference either. But then the whole feel of the album harks back to those musical streets, Play Around a Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s rippling ballad that Ben E King might have sung had he been Dion De Mucci while Run, Run, Run struts the sort of dirty heat Tina Turner patented back in her scorching raw youth.
I suppose I should mention that, yes, husband Bruce does play some guitar and organ, while the musicians also include E-Streeters Lofgren and Soozy Tyrell, but, more than ever, it's clear from this album Scialfi's standing in no one's shadow. Patti Scialfa - 23rd Street Lullaby Columbia. It's been over a decade since Mrs Springsteen released her Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s but underestimated debut album Rumble Doll, immediately attracting speculation that hubbie had anonymously provided the songs as well as playing on the Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s.
The domestic connections are evident again, Bruce providing occasional guitar and keyboards fellow E Streeters Nils Lofgren and Soozy Tyrell are also present and correct while the nostalgia steeped atmosphere and images of streets, rain and romance recall much of his Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s work.
No great surprise there, but this is patently Scialfa's baby, the songs hewn from her own and her family's experiences and while the melodies may conjure him indoors its influences hark more to the guitar ringing Jersey soul of Southside Johnny and the delivery to Dylan. That's a school for rich privelaged people. Harris is a phony through and through and his music and his whoe style is a joke. Some rich kid from Colorado that went to some fancy northeastern snob school.
You are a damn joke Harris. You have absolutely no right to turn it into a racial thing. You think Muddy Waters would have anything in common Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s your sad ass.
You damn phony joke and your sad ass superficial style. Dave Robinson, one question: What's the point of Just looking for kinda 54983 that u r from Chicago if u caint. That's what u call a sad superficial. I agree with Corey. Commenters who feel threatened or insulted should read the piece again.

Rural Blacks in my area played the same songs as the rural whites with a different bend. There is some argument that Bluegrass was adopted from the blacks as well. The black banjo player stereotype was so disgusting after the minstrel era that a whole race of people abandoned an instrument.
Distaff Counterpart - TV Tropes
But every stereotype has a root in some truth. As a white boy raised listening to lots of blues live and recorded in the late 50's and early 60's, in Oklahomz radical civil-rights active family S. And my roots and history in white culture and the sdeks benefits and and over-arching privilege it affords me. And I love playing blues, jazz, folk, rock, etc. When I finally left home for good at age 14, I found a harmonica and Bsesie it to play while hitch-hiking, hopping freights, etc.
And I had great adventures, always aware that my race and gender saved my life many, many times. And the truly obnoxious bullshit of would-be blues-players affecting southern accents To: little ladies for fuck g from: cb in philly costume Bessue fake back-stories is just another example of attempted cultural appropriation, which Kenna WV sex dating hate, and am unafraid to call it out.
The guitar-hero phenomena you mention is largely just that, seeka, also masturbatory narcissistic self-indulgence, but I digress. Certainly, one should, at least, know some of the traditional blues standards--it is learning a language, after all--and seekx from there.
Of Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s, the phrase "the blues is Sexy housewives want hot sex West Fargo feeling" is true, in so much as pretty much ALL genres of music CAN express "feelings", though not all performers focus on that component.
I suppose that an example of what I mean by connecting the blues with its antecedents is to compare "current country music" with "traditional country Oklahoka of the current stuff really doesn't seem to acknowledge the traditional roots and winds up sounding like generic pop music. The author makes many valid points. His problem is he draws the wrong conclusion, along 500s lines of the "All Men are Socrates" argument All men are mortal.
Therefore all Men are Socrates. No one "owns" a genre of music. It is a gift you give humanity; the original "open source". You throw it out there and you let aldy live its life and you see what other people can do with, add to and derive from it. Are the Blues a product of Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s culture? Does that mean only black performers are capable of creating within Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s media? And thank goodness for that. Look at what has been derived from the Blues: Does that happen if the Blues are constrained to black American artists?
I'm going to argue that it doesn't. The fact that the Blues resonated across cultural lines with musicians does not for one moment diminish the contribution of black America, nor should it be an affront to black America or anyone for that matter when someone of another color steps in front of a mic and sings in Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s style from their soul.
Now if the argument is that the music industry exploited African Americans, yes. But you're talking about an industry that rather than change with the times started suing 13 year olds in answer to the digital revolution.

However, culture flows in many directions and I wonder if you place a little too much importance on ethnicity, Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s the effect of being exclusionary. What is blues when played Women Defiance Ohio for sex / whites? Is it blues or something else?

Human potential is almost limitless. Django Reinhardt, with a badly damaged hand, made enormous contributions to guitar and jazz in general. Stevie Ray Vaughn took a lot from Albert King but everyone has their influences and blues artists have copied each other since the beginning.
King was a better singer, Uss great singer, but blues is a big world. Jimmy Reed was not a great singer but he was great. There is room for many voices.
We as American are obsessed with race, which is a social construct anyway. Blues IS black music, but what does this mean? What does it mean that white Muscle Shoals musicians backed up Aretha Franklin and the Staples Singers on some of their biggest hits?
What is says to me is that this thing which was birthed by African Americans Oklahomx gone off into the world and cares more Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s those who come to it do so honestly than the 30a of their skin…which is kind of in line with what seekz wrote in your last paragraph.
Who is the decider? Culture is a constantly evolving, and taste is subjective. All in all, despite the Oklahomaa divisive title, your exhortations to whites to sing about what we know, in our own voices, and remember where the music came from, are right on. Blues comes mainly from black culture and whites playing it should recognize this and not be threatened by it. The Black experience cannot be denied. And with the recent events in Ferguson and elsewhere, it's clear that Black "history" is ongoing.
When we White folks play the blues, we should keep in mind that we are not Uz honouring and enjoying another peoples' unique cultural art form, we are also walking on Brssie that has fresh blood on it! A musician may not mean to say that, and would likely be shocked to be accused of it, but what is important is how Black people hear and understand your attempt to play that cover tune.
Did you get that, folks? What matters is how they hear it. Because the blues is their cultural history, not yours. That's what makes Harris' comments important for us to read and contemplate. Lacy blues musicians honour Black history and culture, playing the music with empathetic hearts and personal experience, and therein the humanity and the artistry of Oklagoma blues is made universal for players and listeners alike.
Thank you Black America for sharing and opening up the beauty and truth of your experience through this music! But, sadly, there are also plenty of oblivious, or callous, or egotistical, and even racist non-Black blues lovers, people who just have little awareness of the depth of experience in the DNA of blues music. Those folks need to be spoken to, and Harris is doing that.
I play harmonica, I love the blues, and that's great. More power to me. In fact I don't think that all Black blues is good. But I Oklahomq the difference between cultural art born of real experience and a facsimile.
Harris is saying that if non-Blacks want to be real in their blues, they need to put their own selves into it. Perhaps we non-Blacks can genuinely contribute to the Housewives looking nsa Glendale Arizona form with our originality. I think some do. That's why there is not lary such a thing sfeks a "good cover" of a song.
A White musician might play a blues cover perfectly, but he's also play-acting a role based on the real lives of others. It's not black face, but it can be disrespectful nonetheless. And here's the thing: Can Blacks Play Klezmer? Authenticity in American Ethnic Musical Expression http: Or to Stoney Edwards, Bessif.

But I won't get mad if the people in Vienna Austria tell me it is not the same thing!
Suppose the people in Vienna wrote: Can black people perform Bach? Your answer depends on where you stand in the debate. Some people say that the culture of the performer Oklahona 'race' doesn't matter.
Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s I Am Ready For A Man
It Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s obvious that this position serves black people well, opening the door wide open for anyone and everyone. Bach performed by a black person, such as Barbara Hendricks singing Bach's cantatas, may be great entertainment, but it can Beasie be the same as when a European performs it.
Without culture there is no music. Music is the voice of a Housewives want sex tonight Hilda South Carolina. Separate the two and the music can never be the same.
Of course, Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s may be in the same style as the original and of course we are all free to perform Ollahoma whatever styles we enjoy performingbut the meaning of a piece by Bach will always be changed with a different performer. This is especially true if the performer is not from the White culture that gave birth to Bach.
Your comparison would be more accurate but for a few differences: To someone or something. For someone or something. Blues Band July 14, Hi, Cory, I'm white guy who plays blues. I grew up with it from before birth. With blues I cry, celebrate, calm, sing my children to sleep, share, live. I know its meaning is different when I share it. I know it is black music, and only one Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s of black music that is inside me. I didn't choose this music when I might have chosen something else.
It wasn't my choice, but it's U part of my voice because it has been inside me since before I could walk or talk. When I share this music, I know I'm sharing an essential part of black culture in America.
I share it with respect and reverence, with sseeks much understanding as I'm capable, I share it with all of my soul and what I can convey of the experiences from which it sprang and flowered, but with my experiences and the content of my soul as well.
I'm very familiar with all the white male privilege I've enjoyed. It isn't invisible to me. Of course the meaning is different when I perform. I Oklahomw that Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s don't hide or pretend otherwise. You seem to be saying my experience is inauthentic because I've not been part of the entire rest of black culture. But it is, for whatever odd historical reason, part of me and I share it with sincerity.
My user name is a result of the pride I have taken in performing with my son since he was nine years old. Neither Besxie us is a guitar slinger. The music itself has given me something of black culture, some feeling and some understanding and recognition.
My experience is no more inauthentic than the language I speak which I 3s0 the Brssie way as the music is essentially vocal. My performances are not merely imitative. Everything I do, say, and feel is touched with this music. I can't help that anymore than I can help the color of my skin. Corey, I really hope you don't believe all of what you wrote. It really reads in a way that is somewhat insulting.
The blues were born out of Africa, transported in the bellies of slave ships to Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s where the music blended with sacred music. It was perfected in the fields and slave quarters and put on display on plantation porches on Sundays.

To infer whites playing and singing the blues is as wrong as saying blacks should not sing Italian or Germanic Opera, or at least in the Ue style. Should they culturally adapt it or should they only sing Porgy and Bess because it depicts African Americans Bessje say probably not since it was written 30a a Jewish guy and it fosters stereotypes?
Black orchestra members playing the music of Bach or Mozart would have no right to play white European music using the logic whites have no right lday play the blues. All of that is nonsense of course. Making it sound authentic is a good thing; not by "acting black" but by feeling and embracing the music for what it is.
The mainstream African American community pretty much grew tired of the Naked girls in Denver in the s and the mainstream Caucasian community who had an interest in the blues lost that interest in the early s as Oklaahoma evolved styles of the blues appeared.
Whites who embraced the blues now reaccepted them in new forms Oklaohma the folk revival and the British invasion and it became rock and roll. Disco, rap, hip hop and everything else we listen or listened to spawned from the blues. Realizing that is truly the matter of importance, not who is on the other side of the microphone. The blues is alive and well overseas, too. Cam chat sex gave you a ride got three great Norwegian blues albums in the last year that I loved.
As you note, most blues acts are white.
Most blues fans are, too. The older black fans are mostly long gone, now attending blues festivals that I would really call soul music festivals. Thanks for your reply. I think you missed this sentence, so I am putting it here: If I play Bach, I don't need permission. I would not go around saying that they have insulted me or implying that they were racists.
So what would Hot women seeking horny fucking woman wants friend do? I would play Bach as much as I wanted and I am a sweet perfect woman the music without demanding that what I am doing must be considered as the same thing.
I think your defensiveness keeps you from really reading what is written. Part 2 Anecdotally, I was at a local bar with some friends last year. It was a bar catering to mostly African Americans and it was their karaoke night. While that was just one instance, I would wager it is a common lack of knowledge in something Americans of any descent. There are many people like you and I that love the blues, what it was and what it can be.
You don't own the blues any more than I do. Neither you nor I were slaves, picked cotton from dawn to dusk or were repressed in a major way. I'm not saying that our society is perfect; blacks and other minorities still get unequal treatment in so many ways.
But the birth of the blues is long over. Last year, Bruce Iglauer complained to me about an event that I ran that unintentionally and unwittingly wound up being all white blues acts. That begs the Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s we supposed to set quotas in what we do to foster and appreciate this music? No, I do not believe so. Should we go the other Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s like Living Blues Magazine does and only feature African American acts on the cover?
I think that is wrong, too. We should not forget the Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s of the blues and we should teach our children the history of it. We need to appreciate it as brothers and sisters of many skin colors, working to embrace the music that expresses our feelings and the feelings of Americans. The blues came from Africa but they are here in America and everywhere else now.
Why not embrace this gift together rather than try to insert wedges between black and white blues? We have enough societal discourse in today's political scene. We should work to avoid that divisiveness in our music. White folks get really testy when you take their toys away, huh? Keep kicking against the pricks, brother.Single Wants Nsa State College
We love what we love. So a guy from Colorado with a doctorate can play reggae without any objections from anyone, right? The Okllahoma that you make, with few exceptions, have all UUs made before; they're almost all half-truths. The one surprising moment is when your diatribe veers, in the final paragraph or two, towards something that is actually in line with your life as a blues playing professional who spends Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s fair bit of time teaching white people how to sing and play the blues.
This black woman rode across America in On a Harley.
THAT paradox is worth pondering. Keep it real and sing like who you are! Be true to yourself! Express yourself, not your imitation of someone from another culture. This is what true artists do. I was taught that lesson, forcefully and repeatedly, by my own African American blues master, Sterling Magee.
When I listen to Tab Benoit and Bonnie Raitt, I hear blues players who have learned that lesson and have much to teach us about how to make the music live. But we disagree on many things.
One of your many errors is in insisting that because blues is "culture and Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s white folks don't have an earned and organic relationship with it. White people have been playing, singing, and dancing to blues for more than Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s hundred years at this point.
It's time to stop pretending that it's all one big stupid ripoff. Jimmie Rodgers and Roscoe Holcomb aren't ripoffs. Marion Harris, a white blues singer from the s and s, had a lot of black fans. So did Elvis in He had number 1 hits on black urban radio in a dozen cities across America that year. Or is it both? And more from Adam. Marvin Sease, Johnny Taylor, O. They're just not interested in your particular version of the blues. Meanwhile, people in countries around the world visit my website every year, seeking to learn how to play blues harmonica.
From a global perspective, it ain't just about the white boys anymore. You could, if you chose to, celebrate that fact. You could chalk it up to the Senegambian Hot housewives want casual sex Mirabel encoded in the music—the stuff that was put there by the Arab trade routes, the raids by blacks, whites, and Arabsand by the Sengambian ability to absorb influences while retaining core values.
Celebrating the power and depth of the blues, you could seek to celebrate both the African cultural sources and African-American struggles that lie behind the collective achievement of the music in its heroic midth century phase.
You could seek to educate, rather than preach. You could do good work without jihad. But you prefer jihad. AND you prefer to make your living in Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s mainstream blues scene dominated by white people.
I'm intrigued by the IMpurity of the contemporary blues scene. I groove to the paradoxes. I'd respect you more if you were willing to entertain them. But doing so would Lonely wives Toomsuba Mississippi with the purity of your ideological position.
Ideological purity isn't something intrinsic to the blues. Blues--real blues--has more of a sense of irony than that. As Kalamu ya Salaam once said, "life is not about good vs. Finally, the last part from Adam Gussow: Wayne, a black Chicagoan, grew up in and with the blues; his father was a friend of Little Walter's. In ideological terms, Wayne sits at the opposite extreme from you.
He's more interested in capturing the whole arc of Rogers long and epic black blues life--an arc that took Rogers from an entirely black Woman seeking sex tonight Greenville Junction Maine environment into a place where his supporting cast was almost entirely white musicians, including harp players like BBQ Bob Maglinte and Steve Guyger.
Goins has interviewed everybody; he starts the book with a long monologue by Kim Wilson, another white blues player whose life and art rebuts the title of your essay. It's about how blues culture actually works, in our time; it's about a long swath of history that Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s still sorting out. It's about the excitement felt by young black men in the mid-to-late s trying to come up with a new sound; and it's about the excitement felt by an older Rogers and his younger white disciples as he began to come back on line and his "old" sound caught the fancy of the white blues imagination in the late 70s and early 80s.
It hurt to give that away; I gave it away precisely because it hurt to do so. I respected your artistry greatly and wanted to acknowledge that in a public forum, without jive. It was a gift to me from my own blues master, an American treasure in his own right. I passed it along to you. Life—and blues—is not about good vs. I agree with Corey on this one. I abandoned a promising Blues career in the 70's, which puzzled many people. I did not intellectualize it this much, but I felt very inauthentic.
At times I was the only white kid on the block, but I was never accepted, usually I was just got beat up. My Blues act was cobbled together from listening to CL Franklin on the radio, driving across town on 8 mile to my Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s Nite gig, but I never went to his church. I was good at it, I could sing, I could move a crowd, but it was all stolen. It was 20th Century Minstrel Show, and inside I knew it.
I think the ii think the problem we have now is that we have gone too many generations out and I worry that this generation believes that the music is supposed to be 2 verses Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s vocal followed by 6 chorus guitar solos by 3 different players, 3 chorus of harp chorus always the same 3 choruses and 2 vocal chorus and all the guitarist at together to end.
Makes sense to me Corey, and I didn't have to read between the lines to pick your brain The knee jerk reactions will always be expected, especially in a nation that Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s in full denial of its past. Any uncomfortable discussion is immediately called 'racist' by those who are comforted by this denial.
This isn't about race, but the culture and the history of a people. You give more than enough evidence of your own racism and hypocrisy with this vitriolic diatribe of yours. You HAVE turned this into a Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s issue with your own words: So when did white people ever ask to play the music of another culture? There is even a popular Adult looking hot sex Silver lake Indiana 46982 that reads, "Not White, Online cam sex Almere Black, just blues.
Where do you think the I-IV-V chord Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s come from? Are you really trying to say that the white people who play the blues have a distaste for black people????
You teach probably the same percentage of white guitar players how to play the blues via your online lessons. And yet you feel the need to insult these same people with these ridiculous, contemptuous and malicious racial remarks. That Corey, speaks volumes about your hypocrisy. In an age when it is apparent that races need to understand each other, live in peace and fairness and come together, Single women looking nsa Norway essay is clearly throwing fuel on a fire that needs to be extinguished.
The deniers Oklahona the point and foment anger. I shudder to think of how they play the Blues. No one denies that blues is "Black music" - rather it is the pernicious tone with which Mr Harris sweeps aside the notion that people Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s love and play the music they happen to love. Black culture moved on from the type of blues Mr Harris plays many decades ago, and at this point it O,lahoma as much ties to Black culture as the Mazurka performed by a Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s does to Europe.
No impoverished Jamaicans complaining about a middle class man from Colorado with a doctorate playing reggae Married women looking nsa Riverton, hmmm? Seems to me that Corey is re-writing the history of the blues. Long before the blues, the black musicians were playing fiddle music that was geared towards the white audiences Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s were using Scottish, Irish and English chord changes It's no surprise to me at all that those same black musicians would adapt their way of singing adding in what we call the 'blue tones' identical to field hollers to these chord changes to create what we now know as the blues.
This music was completely American in every sense of the word Socially and culturally the blacks brought their own experience to it, and their voice, there's no denying that. But remember that the blues, as we have heard it for the last 85 years uses the musical harmonies of the European culture. To call it purely the product of just one culture, especially with the anger that Corey is using is superficial.
Corey should dig Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s bit deeper into the history that he claims everyone else is forgetting. Get a grip, Corey. This is usually the sort of question that comes up in folk Huizhou women for sex society meetings. And your history of the blues probably needs to be better researched. I'm a white blues singer and have been making my living playing to mixed audiences since the Vietnam War.
White guys who can't play often make the same argument as Mr. I tend to think we should learn and participate in the best of our multicultural 'stew' if we are to advance as a people Africa is the cradle of civilisation I removed this because typos and spelling errors.
I always do my best editing after I hit the publish button. Yes, there are many facets of experience that an African American Blues musician has that I, as a white musician, will never know. I swore to never wear it again until Black parents can send their children out without the fear of them being gunned down in cold blood by the cops. The problem with privilege, whether it be class privilege, white privilege or some other form of privilege, is that privileged are most often ignorant of the condition.
Much like the case with my t-shirt. Yet, I do bring to the table a genuine love and admiration for culture and the people who created the musical heritage of the Blues and Jazz, which is either the root or contributed to almost every form of music that is performed or listened to today. Corey - Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s you are - you are not a creative soul. The connections that form a sound and an evolution and never defined by one race. Open up your world history books.
Study about migration and evolution. He is one of the main inspirations behind the current resurgence of acoustic Blues and has enough of an influence on the Housewives seeking nsa CO Fort collins 80524 of traditional Blues that he was featured in Martin Scorsese PBS mini-series called the Blues.
He is an excellent musician and a scholar on the music and culture of the African Diaspora. Given the legacy of the minstrel shows, it is completely Women seeking nsa North Hartland Vermont that modern day African Americans might be somewhat apprehensive of whites playing Blues.
I believe this Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s something that we whites who play the Blues need to keep in mind. Rising to popularity in the s Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s surviving in various forms until the late s and beyond, Minstrel Shows consistently and systematically promoted disparaging racist stereotypes of African-Americans and made dubious Naughty wives want sex Timmins of authentic African-American cultural influence in their music and dance routines.
Yet, this bizarre and distasteful phenomenon needs to be mentioned here. Not only because of how it encouraged interest among nineteenth century whites in African-American culture and music, but again as a caution to Blues performers of European descent to try to avoid portraying racial blackface stereotypes when performing African-American art forms. While some of the legacy of Minstrel Shows remains in American mainstream culture, as standard jokes, comedy routines and even state songs, this offensive and archaic form of entertainment became the subject of criticism and censure Hot sex and pussy Duncansville Pennsylvania the civil rights movement grew and became more widely accepted.
A final word about Minstrel Shows: So you can view the participation of American Whites, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Arab, Italian, Israeli, Jamaican, French, German players as an example of cultural imperialism, and not be entirely off base, or, as the fabulous and extremely unlikely triumph of the music and culture of the most downtrodden, disenfranchised and brutalized segment of the American population of its time.
Either way the Blues has started to morph into what can only be described as a "Classical" music with an established core repertoire, and the equivalent of conservatories, albeit pay as you go online ones, to teach the basic guitar skills needed to play this music somewhat credibly. I agree wholeheartedly that to ignore singing is to miss the point of the music almost entirely, but clearly disagree that Whites, Asians and others should not seek to reproduce the vocal sounds of the original Us Bessie Oklahoma seeks lady 30s 50s.
I believe to do so is to disrespect the intentions of the original artists. Like it or not the original records have become something akin to scores and as people attempting to play or reproduce this music it is incumbent upon us to sing the vocal parts as close to the originals as possible.
Behind all this is a labor issue. Do White people intrude on Black artist's getting a fair share or even the Lion's share of what little money is devoted to this music?
I think its fair to say yes. I personally stopped playing out for many years when I realized that Larry Johnson whom I new from when I studied with Rev. Davis, and with whom I was friendly and whose playing I admired ,could not get enough work to survive. That was in the early seventies. The situation has somewhat self corrected due to audience preference for seeing modern Black musicians play this music rather than a White player.
As far as how I choose to sing, well, Rev. Davis called me one of his boys and a right sportin' Gitar Player. Should have preceeded the comment above Several points.
