Howlin’ Wolf featuring Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bill Wyman & Charlie Watts – The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions (2006)

 

Release Date:July 26, 1989
Original released Date: 1971
Genre: Blues, Chicago Blues
Label:Chess/MCA Records
USA

 

For the casual blues fan with a scant knowledge of the Wolf, this 1971 pairing, with Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts from the Rolling Stones, Ringo Starr, and other British superstars, appears on the surface to be one hell of a super session. But those lofty notions are quickly dispelled once you put this disc on the player and hit play. While it’s nowhere near as awful as some blues purists make it out to be, the disparity of energy levels between the Wolf and his U.K. acolytes is not only palpable but downright depressing. Wolf was a very sick man at this juncture and Norman Dayron’s non-production idea of just doing remakes of earlier Chess classics is wrongheaded in the extreme. The rehearsal snippet of Wolf trying to teach the band how to play Willie Dixon’s « Little Red Rooster » shows just how far off the mark the whole concept of this rock superstar melange truly is. Even Eric Clapton, who usually welcomes any chance to play with one of his idols, has criticized this album repeatedly in interviews, which speaks volumes in and of itself.

Line up:

Howlin’ Wolf – Vocals, Acoustic Guitar (tracks: 9), Harmonica (tracks: 4,8)
Eric Clapton – Lead Guitar
Hubert Sumlin – Rhythm Guitar
Bill Wyman – Bass Guitar, Cowbell, Shaker

Otis Rush – Any Place I’m Going (1998)

 

Release Date: August 11, 1998
Genre: Blues, Electric Chicago Blues
Label: House Of Blues
USA

 

Like fellow hot-shot Chicago blues guitarist Buddy Guy, Otis Rush has slowly made a comeback in the ’90s after influencing musicians from Eric Clapton and Peter Green to Led Zeppelin.This album on the House of Blues label is a bit smoother and more slickly produced than Rush’s classic, rough-edged Chess recordings, but there’s still plenty here to like. With a solid horn section backing him on most cuts, Rush gets ample room to show off his razor-sharp guitar chops. And his distinctive, emotionally charged voice remains a true blues treasure. Squeezing off vibrato-filled chords, it’s easy to hear how his style found its way into Slowhand’s bluesier moments. In addition to his own no-nonsense originals, Rush draws on some familiar tunes from classic soul and blues performers like Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Nappy Brown, and Little Milton.

Line up:

Otis Rush: vocals, guitar
Lestes Snell: piano, organ
Thomas Bingham: rhythm guitar
Leroy Hodges: bass
Steve Potts: drums
James Mitchell: baritone sax
Scott Thompson: trumpet
Jim Spikes: tenor sax
Jack Hale: trombone

Big Apple Blues – Brooklyn Blues (2010)

Genre: Blues, Chicago Blues
Label: Big Apple Blues / CD Baby
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

Brooklyn Blues is the culmination of a few blues musicians walking into a recording studio with their gear, plugging in and rolling tape. That of course, is an over-simplification of the recording process, but it’s all the listener really needs to concern themselves with.Big Apple Blues is not a homage, but a continuation to the ‘living record’ of the Chicago-style electric blues of mid-century Middle America. The sound of this record didn’t have to be manufactured, it emanated from the hands and lungs of the musicians performing the essential American art form. The Big Apple Blues (formerly Stone Tone Blues Band) band walked into Excello Recording – a Brooklyn recording studio thick with vibe and history, past hallways stacked to the ceiling with vintage amplifiers – and made a record.

Line up:

Zach Zunis: guitar (Fender Strat, going into a 1956 tweed and 1965 black-faced Fender Deluxe’s),
Anthony Kane: harmonica,
Jeff McErlain: guitar,
Hugh Pool: guitar, harmonica, slide guitar, vocals,

Stackhouse is a swinging harp-led band from the Netherlands and plays traditional blues in the classic Chicago tradition. The inspiration for the band’s name came from bluesman Houston Stackhouse who influenced many blues players that later moved on to Chicago. Despite a pretty big age difference between band members, their seemingly effortless ensemble performance does not suggest any age gap.

Tomato’s « Dust My Broom » collects some of the last recordings of Elmore James’ career, including « Baby Please Set a Date, » « The Sky Is Crying, » « Done Somebody Wrong, » and « Shake Your Moneymaker. » As is expected, James’ incendiary slide guitar cuts through every track. « Rollin’ and Tumblin’, » « Anna Lee, » « Fine Little Mama, » and « One Way Out » are some of the other highlights of this collection, which may not be as definitive as Rhino’s The Sky Is Crying, but still offers enough essential songs and performances to make it worthwhile.

Chicago has always had a reputation as a ”wide open town” with a high tolerance for gangsters, illegal liquor, and crooked politicians. It has also been the home for countless black musicians and the birthplace of a distinctly urban blues – more sophisticated, cynical, and street-smart than the anguished songs of the Mississippi delta a music called the Chicago blues. This is the history of that music and the dozens of black artists who congregated on the South and Near West Sides.

Jimmy Burns – Live at B.L.U.E.S (2007)

folder

 

USA FlagRelease Date: February 27, 2007
Genre: Blues, Delta, Chicago Blues, Moder Electric Blues
Label: Delmark
USA

 

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

Born in Dublin, Mississippi in 1943, Jimmy Burns derived his earliest inspiration from the records of Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and others. After Jimmy moved to Chicago in the mid-’50s he discovered a scene that was perfect for the meld of traditional blues, churchy emotionalism, and forward-looking pop/R&B sophistication that by then comprised his musical aesthetic. Live at B.L.U.E.S. captures perfectly the indelible combination of joyful spirits, warm-hearted intimacy, and sharp-witted intelligence that characterizes Jimmy Burns, as both a musician and a man. With special guest vocalist Jesse Fortune.

Line up:

Jimmy Burns – vocals, guitar, harmonica
James Carter – drums
Greg McDaniel – bass instrument
Jesse Fortune – vocals
Tony Palmer – guitar.

Jimmy Burns – Leaving Here Walking (1996)

folder

 

USA FlagRelease Date: November 26, 1996
Genre: Blues, Chicago Blues, Delta Blues,  Modern Electric Blues
Label: Deklmark
USA

 

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

Jimmy Burns, Born in 1943 near the Delta town of Dublin, Mississippi, embodies that increasingly rare combination of blues roots deep enough to tap into ‘the real thing’, while still possessing the youth and vitality to present his music with plenty of life and real excitement. He honed his vocal skills singing with vocal groups in the ’50s, and over the years has perfected an appeallingly melodic, vocal-inflected contemorar guitar style to complement the down-home picking he’d learned in his youth.In the studio Jimmy and his regular band played off one another with a musical empathy that comes only from countless nights of proving themselves on the bandstand. With Leaving Here Walking, Jimmy pays tribute to his earliest musicla inspirations, revisits the era of classic R&B, and presents well-crafted originals covering all the facets of his long and varied life in music.

Line up:

Jimmy Burns: guitar, vocals,
Rockin’ Johnny Burgin: guitar (tracks: 1, 2, 4 to 8, 10 to 12, 14)
Sho Komiya: bass,
Kelly Littleton: drums,
Martin Lange: harmonica.
