Jimmy Burns presents the complete package of commercially appealing, blues-faithful tunes, mostly self-written. His guitar playing is economical but not sparse, tinged with excitable phrases but never over the top, the perfect cool, burning balance.Burns also has a fine band whose taste and supportive nature is the perfect foil for the leader.This is a bluesman who has a style all his own, free of clichés and influences, with a controlled feeling for the blues that bubbles over when called upon. He could be the premier blues exponent of today, one who the public better be paying close attention to.

Line up:

Jimmy Burns (vocals, guitar, harmonica),
Michael Dotson (guitar),
Michael Jackson (tenor saxophone),
Allen Batts (piano),
Sho Komiya (bass),
Kenny Smith (drums).

Jimmy Burns Band- Back To The Delta(2003)

Jimmy Burns - Back To The Delta (2003)

Modern blues fans shouldn’t be turned off by the title of Jimmy Burns’ third Delmark release, Back to the Delta. The electric guitar slung over Burns’ back on the cover should be a definite tip-off that this is not a recreation of authentic Delta blues. Burns, who is from the Delta, took his inspiration for this session from blues guitar forefathers of the territory, alongside modern pioneers Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and John Lee Hooker.

Line up:

Jimmy Burns: vocals, guitar,
Kevin Shanahan: Guitar,
Roosevelt Purifoy: piano,
Ron Lasken, Nick Charles: Bass,
Greg Haar, Larry Taylor: Drums.

USA FlagRelease Date: August 21, 2015
Genre: Blues, Modern Electric Blues, Contemporary Blue, Soul Blues.
Label: Delmark
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

Singer, guitarist, and songwriter, Jimmy Burns is a contemporary bluesman who combines his Delta roots with R&B and soul to come up with a sound uniquely his own. Burns is a charismatic performer with an expressive, soulful, voice and a melodic guitar style to match. « It Ain’t Right » is Jimmy Burns’ first studio set in a long time – 12 years, to be precise, a belated sequel to 2003’s Back to the Delta. « It Ain’t Right » doesn’t make any pretenses about returning to Burns’ Mississippi roots but rather settles into a wonderfully textured soulful groove, something relaxed and elastic, a sound that gives plenty of space to both his clean, hopping guitar and robust vocals.

Line up:

Jimmy Burns – vocal, guitar
Anthony Palmer – guitar
Greg McDaniel – bass
Bryant « T » Parker – drums
Sumito « Ariyo » Ariyoshi – piano
Roosevelt Purifoy – organ
Marques Carroll – trumpet
Chris Neal – tenor sax
Aaron Getsug – baritone sax

Genre: Blues, Contemporary Blues/Soul
Label: Silent Pocket Records
UK (Yorkshire)

Kit Holmes is that welcome curiosity, a young composer and singer-songwriter with all the makings of a new British guitar heroine and a style that skips cheerfully across boundaries. She mostly plays acoustic guitar but she’s certainly no folk singer; her songs are far too pop-influenced.Impressive, and she’ll baffle those in the music industry who like everything to fit into neat, marketable categories.

Keb' Mo' - Bluesamericana (2014)

USA FlagOriginal Release Date: April 22, 2014
Genre: Blues, Contemporary Blues, Blues Rock
Label: Kind Of Blue Music
USA (Nashville, TN)

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

Guitarist/vocalist Keb’ Mo’ draws heavily on the old-fashioned country blues style of Robert Johnson while keeping his sound contemporary with touches of soul and folksy storytelling. A skilled frontman as well as an accomplished sideman, he writes much of his own material and has applied his acoustic, electric, and slide guitar skills to jazz- and rock-oriented bands.At its core, the album is about love and understanding. Those qualities are expressed in some of the most poignant and joyfully melodic numbers Keb has ever recorded.Acoustic guitars do feature prominently in these arrangements, which boast plenty of textural flesh via electric and resonator slide guitars, mandolin, percussion, keyboards, reeds and horns, but still reveal the gorgeously chiseled architecture of their bare bones origins.

Mr Bo Weavil is the direct heir to Bo Weavil, once hailed as the best blues band in France by no less than Ben Harper. Matthieu Fromont has chosen to continue his musical voyage solo this time, writing all of the tracks of this new album. Matthieu also illustrates his instrumental proficiency on this As a Striving Lonesome Bull, playing guitar, bass, percussion, banjo, Jew’s harp, flute and drum loops. A gifted alchemist, he throws into his blues mix a touch of rock, a pinch of rap, and a few drops of African gris-gris. A total success!

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

The man who made french blues popular, discovered the music when he was still a teenager with an album of the Chicago Blues entitled « The best of Little Walter » From there on he heads off to the United States to listen to his mentors.Born in Paris in 1946, Benoît Blue Boy soon shared his study time at the design school of Les Beaux Arts with two lifetime companions: blues and harmonica. As an author and a composer, he learned his trade on stage, introducing the french audience to this new sound from over the ocean: blues. In 1970, he moved to Los Angeles where he stayed for the next two years and met Stevie Wonder, Carol King, James Taylor and Albert King. In 1972, Zachary Richard introduced him to Louisiana cajun music. Both musicians, singing french lyrics, acknowledge a mutual influence.

Genre: Blues, Conotemporary Blues
Label: Little Roy Gene Blues Band
USA (Arkansas)

7aa7ef57cc2210ad39e6e9b35ae6df4f

Little Roy Gene’s music was born in Arkansas, cut it’s teeth in Texas, went through it’s adolescent rebellion stage in Nashville, grew up on the road, learned it’s lesson in juke joints and honky tonks, was tempered by club fires, and reached maturity in the hearts and souls of it’s listeners. This music is like a mirror reflecting back the authentic nature of the true blues music lover. This is the Real Deal. Spanning over a half a century of songwriting and over forty years of performing, Little Roy Gene’s music resurrects the life of blues music as it should be. As a listener you have the best seat, not the front row of a concert venue, but the front table at a real American Icon performance.

John Lee Hooker Jr. – All Hooked Up

Release: 18/09/2012
Genre: Blues, Contemporary Blues, R&B
Label: Steppin’ Stone Records

John Lee Hooker Jr.’s fifth CD, and first for his own label, is quite remarkable. He may not be the greatest blues singer—his baritone voice has drawn comparison to Lou Rawls’, but his range is somewhat limited—but he sure writes terrific tunes and puts them across with punch. And he doesn’t sound much like his famous father, although he does borrow his dad’s trademark “how how” for the bouncing Mardi Gras–like number Listen to the Music, following it with the line “make a dog wanna bow wow.”

Shemekia COPELAND 33 1/3

 

Release: 25/09/2012
Genre: Blues, Contemporary Blues Vocals, Blues Soul
Label: Telarc

In a span of less than two decades, Shemekia Copeland has evolved from teenage upstart to one of the most prominent voices in the blues. She’s currently the most feted woman in the blues world and actually had a coronation where she was crowned and declared Queen of the Blues at the Chicago Blues Festival in 2011.She’s played all the major festivals and concert dates from Europe to Iraq to a memorable performance at the White House in front of an audience that included the President of the United States, sharing the bill with Buddy Guy, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, B.B. King and other greats.Early in 2012, Shemekia participated in two tribute concerts celebrating recently departed great Hubert Sumlin and Robert Johnson’s centennial, both at New York s Apollo Theater in Harlem, not far from the neighborhood where Shemekia spent her childhood. Those nights she was a featured attraction along with Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Derek Trucks, Elvis Costello and Taj Mahal. Clearly, she’s risen to the top of the field and that reckoning is underscored with the album release of 33 1/3.
