Corey Harris: Fulton Blues

Read "Fulton Blues" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Sono trascorsi due decenni dal debutto di Corey Harris in Between Midnight and Day, che fece gridare al miracolo catapultando il bluesman sulla scena internazionale. Quelle torride esecuzioni di Delta Blues suscitarono alti consensi e grandi attese (confermate dal successivo Fish Ain't Bitin'), portando il New York Times a paragoni -certo eccessivi-con Robert Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins ...

Corey Harris: Zion Crossroads

Read "Zion Crossroads" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Una ...

Corey Harris, Henry Butler: Vu Du Menz

Read "Vu Du Menz" reviewed by Ed Kopp

Critics and musicians routinely refer to veteran New Orleans pianist Henry Butler as “a genius." An eclectic virtuoso who’s studied everything from avant-garde jazz to opera to New Orleans R&B, Butler plays piano like he has four hands instead of two. As talented as Butler is, I’ve preferred his jazz and R&B albums to his blues ...
