HOODOO MAN BLUES to be repackaged with unreleased tracks!!
Junior Wells’ 1965 album is getting a makeover with a new deluxe digipak look with MANY never issued
vintage pictures and A NEVER BEFORE RELEASED SONG. More details next issue!
On an interesting, related sad note - Jack Myers, bassist on this timeless classic recording and many
others (Otis Rush, Big Walter, Charlie Musselwhite) recently passed away in Milwaukee, aged 74. I had no
idea he was still around!! The blues obituary section has been very busy lately with the recent passings of
piano legend Pinetop Perkins (who had just recorded in Delmark’s Riverside studio last year with Willie “Big
Eyes” Smith,) Mississippi juke joint legend Big Jack Johnson, unsung Chicago guitarists/singers Lacy Gibson
(Check out Delmark’s “Crying For My Baby”) & L.V. Banks; famed record men, Harlem’s Bobby Robinson
and Houston’s Huey “The Crazy Cajun” Meaux; along with DJ, the doorman at Rosa’s, who helped to make
it’s billing as “Chicago’s friendliest blues lounge” a true statement.
TWO NEW DELMARK BLUES ALBUMS JUST RECORDED!! Sharon Lewis recorded her Delmark
debut CD in our Riverside Studio on May 23 & 24. She is accompanied by Bruce James, guitar, Roosevelt
Purifoy, piano, Hammond B3 organ and Fender Rhodes; Melvin Smith, bass; Tony Dale, drums. It features
5 brand new original Sharon Lewis songs and her own unique interpretations of covers like Van Morrison's
"Crazy Love". A new exciting young singer/songwriter/guitarist/bandleader on the Chicago blues scene is
Toronzo Cannon. He just recorded his new Delmark debut CD in Riverside Studio also with many new
original songs. Both CDs will be out this year.
We also want to send out our condolences to friends and family of the wildly talented jazz violinist Billy
Bang who passed away too early at the age of 63. Billy recorded 4 Delmark CDs with Kahil El’ Zabar,
including our very first DVD from ‘04, Live at the River East Art Center - DVD 1566) There will be a tribute
to Mr. Bang at the upcoming VISION Fest 16 in NYC in June, where vibraphone star(licker) Jason
Adasiewicz will be also performing in a duo with Peter Brotzmann.
Demetria Taylor, the newest star singer on Chicago’s competitive blues scene celebrated her recording
debut as a leader, Delmark’s Bad Girl, at B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted. The late, great Eddie Taylor, Sr.’s youngest
daughter has a style rooted in the vein of KoKo Taylor, but adds her own unique brand of forward-looking
blues. Special guests Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, Big Time Sarah, and Eddie Taylor, Jr add a ton of feeling
to this much anticipated new release!
Also be on the look-out for CD release parties for blues/soul singer/guitarist Quintus McCormick’s new
one, Put it On Me, and jazz flutist supreme Nicole Mitchell’s quartet, Awakening. Quintus’ follow-up to his
hit Delmark debut, Hey Jodie, is even better- you’re gonna be blown away by his diverse songwriting and
singing. We just heard the “great for her, not good for us” news that Nicole Mitchell is getting married and
moving to Southern California. Congrats Nicole, we will miss you and your immense talent and your kind and
generous spirit!
Special upcoming Delmark related shows- Chicago Blues Fest is coming! Dave Specter’s popular club
in Evanston, S.P.A.C.E is putting on 3 killer Blues Fest shows - Wed June 8th will be Dave Specter’s
Adventures in Guitar with Rockin’ Johnny Burgin, two of the most tasteful guitarists ever! Opening act will
be Rick Simcox & the ToneQuesters, who just recorded at Delmark’s Riverside Studio. The next night will
be a triple billing of West Side Blues Guitar legends Jimmy Dawkins, Jody Williams, and Billy Flynn called
BLISTERSTRING, named after the famed Dawkins’ Delmark CD from the mid ‘70’s (which also happened to
be the last session recorded at the famed Chess studio). The Sat night show will be a Pinetop Perkins tribute
with Howlin’ Wolf’s guitarist, Hubert Sumlin and more.
Delmark performing stars at the Chicago Blues Fest are Rockin’ Johnny (with Smiley Tillman and Mary
Lane,) Nora Jean Bruso (featured on the recently released Jimmy Dawkins’ Leric Story,) Willie Buck (with
Gorgeous George Stancell,) Dave Specter with the ageless funky blues master Jimmy Johnson, Carl
Weathersby (of Mississippi Heat), Jimmy Burns, and more!

supreme entertainers didn’t perform or win. Tail Dragger will be making new lifelong fans in November at the
prestigious Lucerne Blues Fest in Switzerland with Bob Corritore and also at the upcoming Waterfront 4th of
July Blues Fest in Portland, along with Demetria Taylor, Zora Young, and Gloria Thompson-Rodgers in
a Chicago blues package put together by Bay Area Blues Man Ronnie Stewart.

who recently celebrated with performances at the Jazz Showcase.

Liner Notes for Quintus McCormick Blues Band Put It On Me!
Quintus McCormick’s acclaimed Delmark debut from 2009 Hey Jodie!
was one of the best soul-blues albums of the new millennium’s first decade.
Put It on Me! is an apt title for this diverse collection of 14 fresh Quintus
originals. Fans rightfully expect, at the least, an equivalent follow up to a
successful debut. But Quintus has exceeded the promise of Hey Jodie! in
every facet - singing, playing, and writing - not an easy thing to do,
especially in less than two years, even for a college trained musician like
Quintus who scored his first hit at age 51. With impeccably supple support
by his working band - John Chorney - a keyboard star in the making - and
the eloquent, elastic rhythm section of bassist Vic Jackson and drummer
Jeremiah Thomas who provide the indispensable versatility for Quintus’
musical palate, Quintus put it on himself to surpass his auspicious debut.
The clarity of purpose demonstrated by Quintus and his musical cohorts
exudes all that is genuine in the best music: passion, poise, and panache.
Except for some gospel-fueled transcendence with the gently swaying
“Hallelujah” that closes the set on a note of gratitude, the album’s twin
streams of inspiration are tough urban blues and silky, ebullient Windy City
soul. Quintus examines the vicissitudes of modern romance from a variety
of angles. On the blues side there’s the bracing irony of the hard rocking
Jimmy Reed-like “You Just Using Me” (“ I’m using you”), a blues-bump
of reassurance reminiscent of Z.Z. Hill with “I Got It Babe”; more irony with
the smoldering “The Blues Has Been Good to Me,” an epiphany recognizing
that, in the end, all experience is positive; a jagged boogie grinder of postbreak-up confusion and emotional paralysis, “Don’t Know What to Do”; a
sinewy shuffle in praise of a special lady, “Sadie”; the funky title track that
extols his determination and resolve in romantic matters; and two deep slow
blues: “How Quick We Forget,” evocative of Ray Charles’ “Drown in My Own
Tears” but with the added touch of Quintus’ snarling, aggressive stringbending, his fiercest of the set, and a plaintive all points bulletin on a MIA

Chicago Blues Guitar Summit with Jimmy Dawkins,
Jody Williams, & Billy Flynn
Thurs June 9 at S.P.A.C.E. in Evanston
3 world-renowned Chicago Blues guitarists in one night. Jody Williams and
Jimmy Dawkins are two of the main architects and masters of the famed,
Chicago West Side sound that features that wild and eerie, minor key guitar
that has influenced so many. Billy Flynn is the torchbearer of that sound and
is the glue to countless blues bands today and has an encyclopedic blues mind
and diverse repertoire. He has been backing Jody and Jimmy for years, and
knows their unique styles like no other.
Jody Williams - Jody’s impressive guitar can be heard on many ‘50’s/’60’s
Chess recordings with Bo Diddley, Billy Boy Arnold, Howlin’ Wolf, including his
own instrumental masterpieces, “Lucky Lou!” & “Moaning For Molasses”.
Jimmy Dawkins - Dawkins has one of the most distinctive guitar sounds of all
- a heavy, dark, slashing sound that is like no other. He has many influential
recordings in his long career, including the killer late ‘60/early ‘70 albums on
Delmark Records: Fast Fingers, All For Business (with Otis Rush,) and
Billy Flynn - Flynn has led his own band since the 80’s in Wisconsin and
Chicago and can be found making so many bands better. He currently is the
lead guitarist with countless bands, including Kim Wilson of the Fabulous
Thunderbirds, the Cash Box Kings, and the Special 20’s. He was the guitarist
creating the famous Chess sound in the popular recent movie on Chess
Records, Cadillac Records. He can also break out a mean blues mandolin,
harp, and sitar!!
- Kevin Johnson
lover, “Lady Blue,” with flickering fills and jazzy chords
suggestive of T-Bone Walker. The disparity in his playing on
these two tracks is indicative of Quintus’ broadly evolving style.
The languorous “Change” may be the album’s most powerful
slow tune - a five year chronicle of inertia, ennui, and despair
infused with weary vocals and trenchant licks - an engrossing
dirge that has more than one possible interpretation. Before his
move to Chicago in the late ’70s, Quintus lived in Detroit.
Although he was initially enamored of rock, the influence of
Motown had to have been pervasive while growing up in
Detroit; however, Quintus’ dual muses of soul are Earth, Wind,
and Fire’s infectious amalgam of funk, jazz, and adult pop
(“Say Lover” and “Talk Baby”) and the bright and brassy
sophisticated soul of Tyrone Davis (“Loveland” and “Same Old
Feeling”). Such an expanse of styles requires a skilled vocalist
and Quintus is up to the task with his distinctively fluid range
that smoothly goes from a warm, sonorous croon to a cathartic
wail to gritty testifying. Quintus is a beacon of hope for the
future and a major player on the durable soul-blues scene
which traces its origins back to the 1960s when prominent
Chicago artists like Junior Wells, Magic Sam, and James
Cotton added soul to their live repertoires even though in the
years to come a number of notable soul-blues albums would
sadly slip through the cracks. With only two albums to his
credit, Quintus McCormick’s maturity, confidence, conviction,
and triple-threat talent make him one of contemporary
Chicago’s brightest stars.

“Dawkins and his band, featuring Jimmy Johnson on second

-Viintage Guitar Magazine
“Dawkins sings with as much passion here as on any recording
he ever made, and the band is as good as he ever had with
plenty of space for Dawkins’ gritty, trebly guitar.” -Jazz & Blues
“Blisterstring is just that. If the world were a just place, Dawkins
would be a star. Instead, he remains well-respected but outside
the limelight of say a Buddy Guy or Luther Allison. What makes
Dawkins special is his guitar work. Dawkins is one of the
grittiest blues guitarists around. His rough, raw style helped
define the West Side Chicago
sound. Dawkins also is a
strong songwriter. Blistertring
is best when Dawkins is
playing originals such as “She
Got the Blues Too,” “Sea of
Luv” and the outstanding
“Welfare Line.”...Blisterstring

Liner Notes for Demetria Taylor Bad Girl
Everything I do, I do for my mom and my dad.”
Demetria Taylor is sitting at a table in Blue Chicago, the downtown
club where in about an hour she and her band will be firing out her
unique brand of Chicago-bred, forward-looking blues –“blues with a
Millennium sound,” as she describes it– for a Wednesday night crowd.
Many of the people who’ll be dancing and partying to Demetria’s music
tonight probably know the Taylor name largely because of Demetria’s
late father, the fabled guitarist Eddie Taylor, who helped craft the Jimmy
Reed sound in the ‘50s and ‘60s and also recorded several now-classic
sides of his own. And, in fact, she has recast one of her father’s songs,
“Bad Boy,” in her own image, to serve as the title track for her debut CD
on Delmark.
But as her band sets up on the bandstand and vintage Muddy Waters
begins to blast out from the house speakers, Demetria makes it clear
that although she reveres the Chicago blues tradition, she is an
independent-minded woman determined to forge her own sound in a
field too often associated with “moldy-fig” purism. Her father and her
mother, vocalist Lee Vera Taylor, groomed her to be both true to her roots
and unwavering in her ambitions. “I’m out here right now because of my
mom and dad,” she affirms again. “There’s never a time I get on stage
when I don’t talk to God and say, ‘Well, this is for you, Mom and Dad.’
Because I feel like they’re the ones who left this legacy for
all of us. My mom always told me, ‘It’s in you, but you got
to find it. You got to find yourself. You can sing; you just
gotta bring it out.’”
“But I want to keep going,” she continues. “I want to take
my father and everything else I know, and take it and do it
my way. “
Her attitude is the result of growing up in an environment
where music from multiple generations and genres
coexisted in joyful harmony. She lent her own voice to that
harmony early on. “I always have loved to sing,” she says.
“I used to be a little girl running around the house: ‘We
gonna pitch a Wang Dang Doodle all night long!’ I used to
see [my father] on album covers and see him on videos
and different stuff. I remember [blues legends] Eddie
Shaw, Floyd Jones, Little Wolf, Johnny Littlejohn,
Sunnyland Slim, people like that coming around the house;
my father used to sit around and tell stories of when he was
coming up. When he passed away [on Christmas Day,
1985] I was a little girl, but I can remember bits and pieces
of things.
“I was into jazz and blues: people like Koko Taylor, Bessie
Smith, Big Mama Thornton, Eddie Shaw, Howlin’ Wolf, just a lot of
musicians I grew up listening to. Lena Horne, Dionne Warwick
sometimes, Anita Baker. And a little bit of rock – Jimi Hendrix. Michael
Jackson, Janet Jackson. As I got older, I just felt like that stuff started
getting tired, boring to me. I just wanted to do something different, so I
started coming to the blues clubs.”
By this time, Demetria’s older brothers, Tim and Larry, had
established themselves as drummers on Chicago’s West Side circuit.
Demetria herself played drums for quite a few years, but after being
slowed down by carpal tunnel syndrome in her hands, she started to
focus more on singing. Her sister Edna, who now sings gospel, also
performed on occasion, and her brother Eddie Taylor Jr. was honing a
guitar style modeled closely on that of his world-famous father. “Every
last one of my mom’s kids can do something,” says Demetria with pride.
“All my mom’s kids are very creative, and bright and smart.”
Larry and Eddie Jr. have since recorded well-received CDs of their
own; Tim travels the world laying down the rhythm for veteran
saxophonist and ex-Howlin’ Wolf sideman Eddie Shaw. Their success
has encouraged Demetria (“I wanted to do it, too, to let everybody know
what I can do”); however, she also knew that she needed to affirm her
own musical identity by striking a balance between roots and innovation.
In that spirit, she has crafted a CD that both pays homage and serves
as a declaration of independence. “Every song I’ve done,” she avers,
“I’ve done it in honor of the people I was raised up on. I dedicate my first
CD to all of them. I love the traditional blues. But I want to go other
places with my blues. I want to do the Chicago sound, but I want to do
it in my own way.”
Thus she plants her stamp on tributes to Koko Taylor (“Voodoo
Woman” and the anthemic “Wang Dang Doodle,” featuring a guest
appearance by veteran Chicago blues chanteuse Big Time Sarah, who
also weighs in on the Willie Dixon/Howlin’ Wolf perennial “Little Red
Rooster”) and Magic Sam (“All Your Love”); “When You Leave, Don’t
Take Nothing” (in honor of Chicago vocalist Artie “Blues Boy” White); the
title song, a remake of her father’s 1955 recording “Bad Boy,” which
Demetria says moved her so deeply that she cried as she recorded it;
Luther Allison’s deep-blues ballad “Cherry Red Wine;” and “Big Boss
Man,” originally recorded by her father’s legendary partner Jimmy Reed.
The opening medley is a dual tribute to Willie Dixon and –yet again–
Demetria’s idol, the late Queen Koko.
But these tracks, Demetria emphasizes, are merely the beginning of
her musical journey. “When I do my next CD,” she enthuses, “I want to
do all originals. I want to let people know that I got different styles, I’m
just not just a lump-de-lump girl, and try to develop something that
people can know me for who I am. I’m here, I’m ready. I’m ready to go
out there and just let the world know what I can do.”

In honor of Clean Feed’s 10-year anniversary, many of their
Chicago-centric titles are on sale for $10.99 (Unless otherwise marked, thru 7/31/11)
Portugal’s Clean Feed label is celebrating their tenth anniversary this year; quite the milestone for any label, let alone one dedicated to releasing contemporary jazz. Since its
inception, Clean Feed has become synonymous with quality, not only in music but in packaging, something of a rarity these days as music has become yet another disposable
commodity. Like our own venerable independent jazz record label, Clean Feed can count many Chicagoans among their roster of international talent. Living legend Anthony
Braxton’s Duets 1995 (CF079) finds the saxophonist in a duo with bassist Joe Fonda playing original compositions as well as some standards, showcasing Braxton's truly
unique take on the tradition. Chicago institution Ken Vandermark has released two trio records on Clean Feed, Rebus (CF083) with guitarist Joe Morris and Luther Gray on
drums and Triple Play (019) featuring the stellar rhythm section of Nate McBride (bass) and Curt Newton (drums). This rhythm section is reprised on Free Advice (CF098) and
joined by the exceptional keyboardist Pandelis Karayorgis. In addition to known players on the modern jazz/improvised music scene, Clean Feed has the proud distinction of
putting out many titles by emerging talents. The Flatlands Collective's "Maatjes" (CF127), a project of Amsterdam's Jorrit Dijkstra, features many Chicago luminaries including
Jason Roebke, Frank Rosaly, James Falzone, Fred Longberg-Holm and Jeb Bishop. Bishop can also be heard on Pluto Junkyard (CF141) a collective of New Orleans and
Chicago improvisers (known as the Lucky 7s), and on Lucky 7 tenorman Keefe Jackson’s debut as a leader, Seeing You See (CF176). Matt Bauder’s 2010 release A Day In
Pictures (CF210) was an artistic and critical high point from a saxophonist of exceptional skill and promise. Labels like Clean Feed are an invaluable part of a thriving music
community and now, perhaps more than ever, it’s essential to support independent labels as they continue to support independent music.

t the turn of the last century, the Maxwell Street
Market was not only the largest open-air market
in the country, it was an immigrant gateway and
economic hub for those looking to make deals and
find bargains on clothing, tools, produce, cars or anything needed for everyday life. In the 1930s and 40s,
the Maxwell Street Market became a mecca for country blues musicians from Mississippi being heard
playing street corners by vast crowds of multi-cultural shoppers. Because the high volume of street noise
made it difficult for the musician to be heard on their
acoustic instruments, they started “plugging in”. The
electric urban sounds combined with the deep-rooted
acoustic Delta traditions helped make Maxwell Street
the “Birthplace of Electric Chicago Blues”. Among
those who contributed to these new amplified sounds
were Little Walter, Robert Nighthawk, Blind Arvella
Gray, Muddy Waters, Jimmie Rogers, Johnny Young,
John Wrencher, Honeyboy Edwards, and Jimmie Lee
Robinson. By the 1960s, younger musicians like harpist Paul Butterfield and guitarist Michael Bloomfield
could be found playing on Maxwell Street. Butterfield
and Bloomfield would later go on to form the electrifying Blues / Rock unit, The Paul Butterfield Blues
Band. An abundance of amazingly talented musicians
came out of Maxwell Street in its heyday. Their recordings leave a rich document of one of the most exciting times in Blues history.

Gregory Lenoir Allman was born in Nashville,
Tennessee on December 8th, 1947. Gregg was the
youngest of two children from Willis and Geraldine
Allman. In 1949 Willis became a lieutenant in the
army and moved the family to Fort Story, Virginia. On
a visit to Norfolk, the day after Christmas, Willis
Allman was shot and killed while being robbed at gun
point. Geraldine, now a widow, took young Gregg and
his one year older brother Duane, and moved in with
Willis’s parents in Nashville, Tennessee. Geraldine
found work was hard to find, but eventually landed a
job as a secretary in an auto parts shop. Geraldine
realized she would need more money to raise Gregg
and Duane on her own and decided to go to college
to become a CPA. Using Willis’s military benefits,
Geraldine went to college and sent Gregg and Duane
to military school, while getting a break on tuition for
the boys because their father had been killed while in
the army. After graduating from college in 1957,
Geraldine then moved the family to Daytona Beach,
Florida. In 1959, while Gregg and Duane were staying
with their grandparents in Nashville, Gregg befriended a neighbor by the name of Jimmy Banes, who
happened to be playing guitar on his front porch.
Gregg was enthralled by Jimmy and his guitar playing, and asked Jimmy to teach him how to play.
Jimmy taught Gregg everything he knew on the instrument and that’s when Gregg got, “The Fever” as he
says. Gregg, just 11 years of age, saved up enough
money on a paper route to buy his first guitar, a Sears
Silvertone. Gregg took a few lessons and taught himself how to play from a Mel Bay guitar handbook. It
wasn’t long after this that Duane got, “The Fever” himself and wanted to play guitar as well. It was those
summer visits to Nashville that Gregg and Duane
began their musical journey.
The boys’ grandma would take them to the Grand
Ole Opry and Rhythm & Blues Revues. After Gregg
and Duane took up the guitar, it was one show in particular that really stirred their souls. That show was a
R&B Revue that featured Otis Redding, Patti LaBelle,
Jackie Wilson and B.B.King. Soon Gregg and Duane
would become infatuated by the sounds of Howlin’
Wolf, Bobby Bland and Ray Charles to name a few. In
1960 Gregg met Floyd Miles, whom was a singer in a
group called, The Untils and the Houserockers. Duane
also befriended Jim Shepley who also was the guitarist in the Houserockers. In 1962 Geraldine sent
Gregg back to Tennessee for his sophomore year of
high school, due to his love of playing music and his
lack of school interest. Duane had already dropped
out of high school the year before, to focus on play-
ing his guitar. Gregg then returned to Daytona Beach
in 1963. By 1964, Gregg and Duane formed their
own band, The Escorts. By 1965 they were calling
themselves The Allman Joys and were playing all over
the south. Gregg was having second thoughts about
playing music and had thoughts of becoming a dentist after graduating from high school. Gregg now 18
yrs old, had a bigger problem to deal with, the draft.
Duane was exempt from the draft because he was
the oldest son and his father was deceased. To avoid
the draft and going to Vietnam, Duane schemed up a
plan for Gregg to shoot himself in the foot, thus getting a medical exempt from being drafted into the
army. The evening before Gregg’s physical exam,
Gregg and Duane would throw a, “Foot Shootin’
Party”. A few friends came over and Gregg had been
drinking whiskey pretty heavily to get the nerve to pull
the trigger. Gregg called the ambulance, shot more
whiskey, and shot himself in the foot. The ambulance
could be heard coming even before he pulled the
trigger. The plan worked and Gregg avoided the draft.
Soon after, The Allman Joys broke up and Gregg and
Duane formed their new band, The Hour Glass. The
Hour Glass was eventually signed to Liberty Records
out of Los Angeles, California. It wasn’t long before
The Hour Glass became the opening act for various
bands at the Fillmore West and the Whiskey-A-Go-Go.
Duane eventually became fed up with the west coast
scene and he and Gregg headed back to Daytona
Beach, FL. Gregg soon returned to Los Angeles to
become a solo artist for Liberty Records. Duane went
on to record with Wilson Pickett, Clarence Carter, John
Hammond Jr. and many more R/B artist in Muscle
Shoals, AL. In March of 1969, Gregg had enough of
the California lifestyle and liberty Records. Gregg
headed to Jacksonville, FL. at Duane’s request.
Duane had been telling Gregg about his new band
and wanted Gregg to be lead singer and organist.
Gregg arrived in Jacksonville on March 26th and the
newly formed Allman Brothers Band eventually went
on to become one of the most influential bands in
history. 42 years later and over 30 records to his name,
Gregg has released, Low Country Blues, a twelvesong collection of Blues covers and one new song,
“Just Another Rider” co-written by Warren Haynes. This
CD features deep country Blues to big city style Blues
songs, all sung in the richly passionate and soulful
quality that Gregg is known for delivering. Highlights
include Bobby Bland’s, “Blind Man,” Skip James’
“Devil got my woman” and Muddy Waters, “Cant Be
Satisfied.” Allman also covers songs by Junior Wells,
Magic Sam, Sleepy John Estes, B.B. King, Otis Rush
and a few traditional country Blues numbers. I would
argue that, Low Country Blues is the finest solo record
Gregg has made to date.
Put It On Me! (DELMARK CD 815)
The reviews of Quintus’ first CD, Hey Jodie! (Delmark 801), were stunning. “ studio debut of 2009
and one of the best soul-blues albums of the past decade” —Blues Revue. “McCormick possesses a rich,
soulful voice and an incredible versatility on guitar. At one moment he’s laying down an edgy blues-rock
intro, and the next he’s shifting into funk mode with confidence and swagger” —Living Blues. With such a
great debut CD one might wonder if his second Delmark CD could be as good. It is! Fourteen new original
compositions include “You Just Using Me,” “I Got It Bad,” “Say Lover,” “How Quickly We Forget,” “Don’t Know
What To Do,” “Same Old Feeling,” “Change,” “The Blues Has Been Good To Me,” “Sadie,” “Lady Blue,” and
“I Got It Bad.” With special guest Billy Branch. CD: 0-38153-0815-2-2
$14 .99 each
Bad Girl (DELMARK CD 814)
With Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, Big Time Sarah, Eddie Taylor Jr., Shun Kikuta, Roosevelt Purifoy, Greg
McDaniel and Pookie Styx. Bad Girl is the debut CD by blues singer Demetria Taylor, daughter of the
legendary Eddie Taylor. Best remembered for his work as the rhythm guitarist for Jimmy Reed, Eddie Taylor
also recorded as leader for VJ and had a minor hit with the song “Bad Boy” in 1955. Demetria revisits the
song here as a tribute to her late father. But Demetria is not just riding pops’ coattails. Even though she
just turned 38, Demetria won the B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted Blues Diva Contest 2010, has already performed
three times at the Chicago Blues Festival and guested on two Eddie Taylor CDs. Eleven songs includes the
rousing duet with Big Time Sarah on “Wang Dang Doodle,” “I’m A Woman/Hoochie Coochie Woman,”
“All Your Love,” “Goin’ Back To Mississippi,” “When You Leave,” “Big Boss Man.” CD: 0-38153-0814-2-3

Awakening (DELMARK DE 599)
Awakening features Nicole Mitchell’s unique flute work in an intimate quartet setting, supported and
stimulated by some of Chicago’s finest improvisers: Jeff Parker, guitar; Harrison Bankhead, bass; Avreeayl
Ra, drums. Named 2010 Flutist of the Year in the DownBeat Critic’s Poll, Jazz Journalist Association and Jazz

grooves. Mitchell’s earlier projects involved larger groups; Black Earth Ensemble, Black Unstoppable
(Delmark 575 CD and 1575 DVD) and Black Earth Strings, Renegades (587). This smaller group setting
opens the door for Mitchell to stretch out as a soloist more so than on any of her previous recordings.

Beautiful full
Mississippi: State of Blues is a new coffee-table book that offers, in the words of the authors, “a commentary on the state of the blues in the state of blues.” The 107 color photos by Ken Murphy include
iconic scenes such as Dockery Plantation (the home of Charley Patton) and one of the three gravesites
of Robert Johnson, but as the tile suggests, most are of the contemporary Mississippi blues scene.
Accompanying the photos are a long introductory essay and extensive comments on each plate by
Scott Barretta, the former editor of Living Blues magazine and a writer/researcher for the Mississippi
Blues Trail. The trail now includes 130 markers, including one at the south end of Chicago’s Grant Park
near the former site of the Illinois Central station. For more about the Trail visit
“In creating the book we tried to avoid the stereotypical imagery that you often see of Mississippi, such
as black and white photos of an old bluesman sitting on the porch of a ramshackle shack,” says Barretta.
“You might still find that, but we wanted to show what the contemporary scene actually looks like and that
it’s considerably more complicated than people imagine.
“For one thing, the recent interest in blues tourism has resulted in new festivals, the Blues Trail, and
the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center, which is a multi-million dollar state-of-the-art facility.
“At the same time, though, the blues scene remains funky and resilient, with new venues and artists continually popping up. I think it’s easy for many people to think that the blues is ‘dying’ when older artists pass
on and clubs disappear, but that’s been happening for a hundred years and the blues keeps rollin’ on.’

Wells Street In The ‘60s
One of our customers was asking the other day about the jazz/blues
scene on Wells Street in the 60’s. It got me thinking and remembering so
I took a walk from Division to North avenue (south of Second City) on the
street where a lot of 60’s jazz and blues history happened. The street has
changed so much that the house numbers in this article may be only
approximate. Hopefully they’ll help you understand the scene.
Chicago author David Witter interviewed well-known blues
photographer Peter Amft for an article on the evolution o Chicago’s Old
Town. Of the 60s and 70s, Amft said “Old Town became a destination. I
would see Janis Joplin dragging her guitar case down the street, Mama
Cass on her way to Mother Blues, Mike Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield,
who were from Chicago, were here. It was a bohemian atmosphere where
you would see people with guitars and long hair, a place where you could
fly your freak flag, a carnival that didn’t exist anywhere else.”
Yes, it was a draw for folkies and beatniks, but its vibrant music scene
attracted a much broader spectrum of music afficianados.
The early and brief Wells Street blues scene occurred north of North..
I think the first club I remember was managed by some Roosevelt
University students who were blues fans before that was hip and hired
Curtis Jones to play piano. There was a licensing problem and Jones lost
the gig and decided to move to Paris. That would have been about 1961.
The next development: was a club at 1638 N. Wells that hadn’t done
well with a “Gay 90’s” image. Bob Wetlauffer was the manager there.
He had been previously tending bar at the Gate Of Horn. He featured Big
Joe Williams and his 9-string blues. Charlie Musselwhite had just come to
Chicago, was working at Jazz Record Mart, and would sit in with Joe on
guitar. Then Mike Bloomfield started sitting in so Charlie switched to
harmonica (I hadn’t known he played harp!). Paul Butterfield was the next
sitter-in on harp — a band scene was developing! As he often did without
notice, Joe left town suddenly and Paul was hired to put a band together
at Big John’s. When Howling Wolf toured Europe with the American Folk
Blues Festival in 1964, he left Sam Lay unemployed so he joined Paul’s
band and, as they say, history was made. Butterfield and Co. made
several trips to New York to record for Elektra. Someone told me the
engineers didn’t want to mike the guitar and bass speakers so a third
session was required to get the real Chicago sound.
The first jazz that I noticed on Wells was Eddie Davis’ trad band with
Jack “The Bear” Brown at Earl Pionke’s Old Town Gate at 1555 N. Wells.
Davis’ band was on the first album recorded by Leon Kelert for his
Blackbird label. Eddie’s now in charge of the Woody Allen band. You’ll
see him in the movie Wild Man Blues that documented a European tour of
Allen’s band. I believe Earl moved the Old Town past North Avenue
across the street from Second City and switched to a folk music policy that
gave the world the wonderful work of Steve Goodman and John Prine
among others.
In 1962, Little Brother Montgomery led a trad band at a club at 1321
N. Wells owned by Mike Pierpaoli, called The Plugged Nickel. The band
included Ted Butterman, tp; Peter Nyegaard, trombone; Bob Gorden, cl;
Ransom Knowling, b; Booker T. Washington, dms. The club later brought
in Woody Herman for a one-nighter which was so successful they changed
their policy to modern jazz. Joe Segal did Monday night sessions and
probably influenced their bookings which included Coleman Hawkins,
Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Tony
Williams and Wayne Shorter.Roy
Eldridge and eventually Miles
Davis, who recorded Miles
Davis At The Plugged Nickel
in December of 1965. The club
lost its liquor license and closed
in the early 70’s.
Little Brother moved to a club
at 1303 that encouraged its
customers to beat on the tables
with rubber-ended sticks they
dispensed. It didn’t help the
music and didn’t last long.
The Rising Moon Singers (a folk group recording for Mercury)
had opened a club named after the group at 1305 N. Wells on New
Years Eve in 1961. Bob Connolly was in the group, playing trad
cornet. But the mob torched the place when the group declined
certain management.
Mother Blues was
erected at the same
location with a folk policy
until Bob Wetlauffer was
hired to run it for Lorraine
Blues and Jazz
were the policy then with
most of the great names
in blues playing there
when they were in town
both white and black,
including Janis Joplin,
Howlin’ Wolf, Otis Rush,
Delmark recorded
J.B.Hutto there, Stompin’
At Mother Blues (778) in
Richard Harding, who had occasionally hired Big Joe Williams to
play at a folk club on Sedgwick just west of the Wells strip, eventually
moved Poor Richard’s next door to Mother Blues where he
presented, among others, Big Joe and Sleepy John Estes. Ted
Butterman had a Monday night gig with Nygaard, Kim Cusack, John
Cooper, p; Bob Sundstrom, bjo; Mike Walbridge, tuba; Wayne Jones,
dms, This may have been the first Quiet Night, which Harding later
ran very successfully next to the Belmont “L” station.. The Wells club
was a cozier little place well suited to country blues.
Down the street was a jive band that included Tiny Davis who’d
played trumpet with the International Sweethearts of Rhythm. I
never got to hear Tiny play. I think it was a problem for her to exert
herself. Could that have been Holstein’s or Somebody Else’s
A small club at 1335 was still open presenting a trio. We did a
photo shoot of a Delmark drummer working there.
Vee-Jay Records’ Ewart Abner opened the Brown Shoe on
Wells, the site of the Paul Bunyan Restaurant. Howard Bednoe and
another record promoter managed it. They had learned about record
company’s tour support budgets - subsidizing tours by promising
rock groups. The club’s appearances could be tied in with promoting
the artist’s new albums. Joe Segal started doing Monday night
sessions which eventually resulted in an abandonment of the rock
policy in favor of Joe booking nationally renowned jazz acts. Six
months later Joe opened his first Jazz Showcase in the basement
club at the Happy Medium disco on Rush Street which was owned
by the Marienthal’s who also had the London House and Mr. Kelly’s,
I am not sure just when Judy Roberts’ Trio played at the Midas
Touch, closer to North Avenue but she was a fixture for a long time.
She may have been the first jazz on the strip. (She’s coming to the
Jazz Showcase in August.)
As was the case with Gaslight Square in St. Louis, there is a
suspicion that the police were encouraged not to cover Wells Street
too well so the crime rate went up. This would benefit the mob clubs
on Rush Street, wouldn’t it?
Did you know that in 1968 the city of Chicago passed an
ordinance closing all the parks at 11 PM. Prior to that, people used
to sleep in the park all night when it got really hot in summer, those
days before widespread air conditioning. The law was passed just
before the Democratic Convention of 1968. Some protesting kids
camped out in Lincoln Park east of the Wells strip. I was on my way
to a special Monday night concert at Mother Blues — the return of
veteran trombonist Preston Jackson’s to the trad scene. I got caught
up in the police rampage. Instead of dispersing the kids down wide
LaSalle Street or Clark Street which were closer to the park, they
penned them up on Wells, ran them up and down the street. Billy
clubs flailed against buildings if anyone tried to escape between the
houses. We were herded along and visciously beaten from behind. As
I crossed LaSalle to a volunteers’ medic station, a nurse’s face turned
white. She bound me up then told me blood had been spurting out of the
top of my head. At the hospital I got 6 stitches. I now feel bad about the
nice old cop who, as an apology, offered me a ride to my apartment. “I’m
not getting into any policeman’s car tonight!”
I’ll never forget the look of relief on the police investigator’s face when I
told him I didn’t have the badge number of the cop who hit me (from
behind). But I think it was an occasional JRM customer whom I had
spotted in the ranks earlier — anyway the guy never came back to the
Jazz Record Mart.
And that was about the beginning of the end of Wells Street as a
blues and jazz scene.
Toward the end of my recent walk, as I approached North I noticed
Zanie’s Comedy Club still in business. It’s the last cultural institution
other than Second City (north of North) left on Wells. They helped give
birth to Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Richard Lewis, and many others. The
next day I read the obit of Zanie’s owner, Rich Uchwat, have resolved to
go to Zanie’s more often.
In Chicago, City Hall is notorious for opposing music bars. It took
more than a year for one jazz spot to get a license (the owner ran it as a
coffee house temporarily.) Let’s hope our new mayor Rham Emanuel
will make this one of his many changes.
Thanks to Bob Connolly, Wayne Jones, Joe Segal, the JRM staff,
Carol van Tine, Susan Koester, Dave Witter, Ted Butterman, Plugged
Nickel and other web-sites, and all the people I called trying to locate
Peter Amft. (I’m sure many of our readers have reminiscences about
their experiences on Wells - we’d love to hear from you).

Congratulations to Alligator Records
On Their 40th
Bruce Iglauer is celebrating the 40th year of his Alligator label.
He’s got a lot to be proud of and I am proud to mention that he once
worked at the Jazz Record Mart and Delmark Records.
I think it was before Alligator that he did a lot of work getting
Living Blues magazine started; he was one of the founding
members and I am sure his enthusiasm helped the others put
together the first American blues mag.
He was blown away, as many were, by Hound Dog Taylor’s
playing and singing and tried to get me to record him. Delmark was
involved in some other projects and I just couldn’t fit it in so Bruce
started his Alligator label. He continued with Delmark, often getting
his work done in time to take off early on Friday to go on the road
with Hound Dog. He was a master at publicity and promotion and
it wasn’t long before he was very successfullly on his own.
Now Alligator has a deep catalog of blues and soul music and a
staff much larger than we have here at Delmark. How does he
manage to keep Alligator going without a record shop to pick up the
tab for the label?
Congratulations, Bruce and best wished for the next 40 years!

Want to Learn About Historic Chicago Blues & Jazz? Get on the Bus.
Chicago Detours to depart from Jazz Record Mart every Saturday from June 11 through September 10.
Chicago has been needing a tour to show off its
incredible music history, and Chicago Detours
has done exactly that. On June 11th, coinciding
with Blues Festival, the interactive tour company
is launching “Our Chicago Sound: Jazz, Blues
& Beyond,” an exploration of the cultural history
of Chicago music. The
bus has video screens
and a great speaker
system for experiencing the actual music,
and goes from Uptown
to Bronzeville. The tour
company advises that
it is an “active tour,” because they do get off the
bus for a brief walk around Uptown, and they go
into the former Sunset Cafe/Grand Terrace, now
Meyer Hardware, a landmark for Chicago jazz.
Chicago Detours appears to have put an
enormous amount of research into the tour, having interviewed various members of the music
community as well as having dug through
archives to come up with stories and information
that you don't find on a typical tour. It’s not a
checklist of spots and names from music history.
The guide instead goes indepth into concepts of music
history and how music has
been a catalyst to both separate groups of people throughout Chicago history, as well as
bring them together. This is
the sort of tour experience
that is both fun and entertaining, meaningful and thoughtprovoking.
Jazz Record Mart serves
as the meeting and end point
for the tour (27 E. Illinois Street)
Private groups can also reserve
the tour. Reservations for pub- Chicago Detours offers an interactive, educational approach to the tour.
lic tours can be made by phone
(312.350.1131) or online ( engaging commentary, and valuable extras.
As a social venture, Chicago Detours guides
The launch is June 11th, and tours will run Saturdays through September 10th, the weekend after do not take tips; rather they take donations for
the Chicago Jazz Festival. Tours start at 10am and worthy causes, such as educational initiatives to
1:15pm, and last 2.5 hours. Reservations are give tours to local schools free of charge. For this
required. Adult tickets are $70; students/seniors tour, they have partnered with the Jazz Institute
$65; kids under 12 $60. All tours include an and Blues Camp to support their educational iniinteractive dynamic, multimedia presentation, tiatives in addition to those of Chicago Detours.
Get on the bus at JRM! Saturdays from June 11 through September 10, 2011. Contact Chicago Detours for more info: or (312) 350-1131.
A Look At Big Bill Broonzy
On the occasion of the release of I Feel So Good: The Life & Times of
Big Bill Broonzy by Bob Riesman ($27.50), Bob Koester shares his
thoughts on Broonzy, the early blues recording business and the new book.
Big Bill Broonzy was the central figure of blues in the late 30’s and
early 40’s. His singing and guitar playing were but a part of his talent. I
think of him primarily as a composer. “Key To The Highway” alone would
place him in the Blues Hall of Fame. But there were hundreds of other
tunes. Add to the tunes credited to Broonzy the other tunes credited to
Jazz Gillum and Washboard Sam. Both of these excellent artists told me
that he literally gave them nearly all the songs they recorded. (Bill took
back “Key To The Highway” when he finally recorded it himself.
The first thing I learned from the book was that Lester Melrose
perhaps used a pianist on almost every session after 1935 because
LeRoy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell’s partnership had been so
successful. I buy that idea and am embarrassed that I didn’t think of it.
To understand blues recording in Chicago in the late 30’s you have
to recognize two guys:
J.Mayo “Ink” Williams who worked for Decca as A&R man for black
talent. He didn’t get to publish the songs because Decca had their own
publishing house, which eventually acquired the holdings of the Melrose
brothers. But he did encourage artists to record tunes he already had
pub rights from his connections to Paramount, Black Patti and Vocallion
prior to his stay at Decca. (One of these was Kokomo Blues aka Sweet
Home Chicago.) The book has info on Mayo that I had not seen before.
The other guy worked with the other two labels: RCA’s Bluebird
And Brunswick’s Vocallion (later Columbia’s Okeh). Lester Melrose was
the younger brother of Walter Melrose and the brothers had promoted
most of the Chicago recordings of New Orleans jazz men in the 20’s :
Jelly Roll Morton, New Orleans Rhythm Kings, Tiny Parham, King
Oliver, Johnny Dodds, even Louis Armstrong’s early Okeh classics. A
third brother, Frank Melrose (ahem, Delmark #245) played such great
piano that he was thought to be a pseudonym for Jelly Roll Morton.
Frank went along for the 1930 trips to record for ARC and should be
considered as a possible accompanist along with Thomas Dorsey. The
brothers split and Walter published college songs while Lester got into
Lester functioned as an unpaid talent scout. He found artists
(probably with a lot of help from Broonzy), rehearsed them, usually at
Tampa Red’s house; and was in the studio for the record dates. He
wrote out the lead-sheets for bluesmen who couldn’t read or write music
. I am quoted in the book as saying he earned his lion’s share of the
royalties from the labels for each song on each pressing. Sheet music
wasn’t the profit element in the blues biz that it was in pop or C&W.
By the way, I am amazed that Broonzy’s deal was for only 25%. The
other artists, and contracts I have seen almost always placed the
author’s share at a third not a fourth. The only exception I know of is
Arthur Crudup, whose estate ventually got a c.$100,00 settlement from
Elvis’s use of some of his songs.
Memphis Slim told me that Bill Broonzy was “the biggest liar” in blues
history. In the earliest chapters the author faces this, discovering that
Broonzy lied about his birth-date/place and even his name! I guess he’s
right that it’s simply his story-telling syle.
One of Bill’s lies, in his book, Big Bill’s Blues, with
Yasnnick Bruygnoe was that he first heard a very old
Sleepy John Estes when he worked a track-laying gang
in his youth. Three problems: Broonzy never worked and
Estes never sang on a track-laying gang, and Estes was
approximately Bill’s age. This kept me from believing Big
Joe Williams’ story that Estes was still living in
Brownsville, TN.
The book shows Broonzy and Melrose working with
the indie labels: Paramount, Gennett and ARC (Banner,
Melotone Perfect,etc.) in the 20’s and early 30’s, not
approaching the majors until they developed their 35-cent
Bluebird and Vocallion/Okeh brands. Broonzy, Melrose
and the labels were an overnight success as the record
business returned to normal, partly due to the popularity
of juke boxes after the depths of the depression and, the
book points out, the end of prohibition.
I am gratified that the author gives space to one of my favorite blues
sessions: the State Street Boys. With Broonzy on violin and guitar, early
Jazz Gillum, etc. followed by the State Street Swingers sessions which
often featured Hamfats’ trumpeter Herb Morand.
People who listen mainly to the blues accompaniment have accused
Melrose’s productions of a sameness I never worried about that
because to me the blues is about the poetry and the singing and good
lyrics and good singing was where it was at. The accompanists worked
well together so why should Melrose mess with something that works?
I have always been anxious to hear more of that dependable sameness.
I hadn’t made the connection that the author did between Melrose’s
use of wind instruments on his records with the success of the Harlem
Hamfats on Decca. (In spite of their name, this was Chicago’s first blues
band: guys from New Orleans, Memphis and just out of high school in
Chicago). The author later points out the connection between the
Hamfats Weed Smoker’s Dream and Lil Green and Peggy Lee’s hit Why
Don’t You Do Right?
Riesman speaks of young white guitarist George Barnes r e p l a c i n g
Broonzy for some sessions in Aurora in 1938. That was the year the
union’s black local organized blues recording. There was also a local
recording ban (Petrillo wasn’t yet head of the whole MU, only locally.) So
some musicians got Aurora cards and recorded outside the Chicago
local’s jurisdiction in Aurora. I always thought maybe Bill was allowed in
the union but forbidden to record for some time, but perhaps he was
replaced simply because he wasn’t yet in the union. This ban marked
the end of Chicago as the secondary recording location, replaced by Los
I gotta tell how Ransom Knowling and Melrose got acquainted.
Melrose put Ransom’s name on a recording contract when he used a
non-union bassist which caused Ransom to be dunned for dues on the
payment. He hit on Melrose who auditioned him and then used him on
virtually every date he did until he retired c.1950.
By the way, the white local organized C&W recording after the black
local did their work o the blues. So C&W recording went on the road to
Memphis, Dallas, San Antonio, etc. and never really returned to Chicago.
I was surprised that the author didn’t poke a little fun at John
Hammond when he introduced Bill at the famous Carnegie Hall concert
“wearing his first pair of store-bought shoes”. Bill came to Chicago
There is extensive coverage of Bill’s touring Europe in the early 50’s.
I was surprised that Horst Lippman was involved, handling the German
concerts. He later started the wonderful American Folk-Blues Festival
tours of all of Europe beginning in 1963, vastly expanding interest in the
blues throughout Europe.
Bill’s folk concerts, sponsored by People’s Music in Chicago and
promoted by Rae Flerlage, who was later well-known for his blues and
jazz photography, his appearances at the Blue Note with Studs Terkal et
al in the Monday night series I Come For To Sing which led to the
founding of the Old Town School of Folk Music (which now occupies a
large ex-library building in our neighborhood and is building an evenlarger additional building across the street.
I guess Bill felt Melrose had exploited him badly
for it is notable that he rarely recorded his old
Melrose-published compositions during his LP-era
His Mercury deal, after parting
ways with Melrose, involved a 10” LP of folk songs,
but I was much more appreciative of the now-rare
12” LP on the last Emarcy record (quickly deleted
with the rest of their 36000 series.) collecting the
other sides he made for the R&B market.
I never met Big Bill or heard him live. I wish I
had moved to Chicago in 1957 instead of 1958 so I
might have. Conversations with Ransom Knowling,
other accompanists and fellow Melrose artists were
casual. I wish they weren’t.
But there’s more info on Big Bill, the Chicago
blues scene, the folk scene,etc. than I could digest
in the time I had before deadline. I admit to scanning
but I will be totally digesting this must have book for
anyone interested in the blues!

Yes, There Are Still Live Blues on the South & West Side!
and prowlin’ on Saturday nights, captured in the award winning Delmark
DVD, Live at Rooster’s with Jimmy Dawkins & Rockin’ Johnny. We also
can’t forget the famous Wallace’s Catfish Corner (2800 W. Madison),
which usually has live blues on the weekends in the summer, featuring
harpman, Cyrus Hayes and Lady Lee.
Then there is GENO’S PLAYMATE LOUNGE (4239 W. Cermak) with
live blues every Sunday night with Willie White or Shorty & the
Magnificent R&B Band with June (J.M.) on guitar as the house bands,
with many special guests like Otis Clay, Garland Green, Cicero Blake,
Pat Smillie, Willie Buck, JoAnne Graham, Little Bobby Reynolds, Merv
Murphy, Willie D, and more. This is the club where the much missed
singer/barber Jesse Fortune died on stage a few years ago, in action,
singing his heart out to his beloved fans!
Two of the most underrated Chicago blues guitarists/singers around,
Smilin’ Bobby and Elmore James, Jr alternate Sundays at the BIG O
LOUNGE (5339 S. Halsted) and the KEYNOTE LOUNGE (1116 W. 63rd
St) and the recently back on the scene wild guitar man Smiley Tillman
has been playing all over town (often in Beverly at the End Zone Tap
(10036 S. Western) and has been quite the talk of the Chicago blues
world this past year, playing often with Rockin’ Johnny on 2nd guitar.
The HOT CITY COCKTAIL LOUNGE is a place I had never heard of,
but they have a website (, 7432 S. Racine) and feature
live soul/blues from Jo Jo Murray & the Top Flight Band, Shorty Mack,
and more!
In the Hyde Park/University of Chicago area, JIMMY’S WOODLAWN
TAP (1172 E. 55th) has been the home for a great traditional Chicago
blues jam on late Sunday afternoons with standout singer Willie Buck
with Scott Dirks, Willie Greeson, Justin O’Brien, and Dave Waldman.
Drummer/photographer Robert Pasenko ( has been
holding down a great Thurs “Hot Dog” night jam at CATCHER’S INN
(901 W. 35th near Sox Park) with many special guests like Chuck Crane,
Floyd Wilson, Bobby Too Tuff, Felix Reyes, Sammy Fender, Toronzo
Cannon, Ramblin’ Rose, Jeff Taylor, L.V. Banks, and more!
Full disclosure: I don’t make it out to these clubs too often anymore
(and some never!), even though I would love to! And by no means is this
a complete list, and I would love to hear from folks about a special blues
scene happening that you would love to share with us! You can contact
me at Delmark Records anytime!

Although the most popular Chicago Blues Clubs are predominantly
tourist-driven North side clubs, like Buddy Guy’s Legends, Rosa’s, Blue
Chicago, Kingston Mines, B.L.U.E.S., Nick’s, Shaw’s, etc., there are still
some real deal taverns/clubs/halls on mostly the west and south side of
Chicago that still feature live blues, mostly catering to the local
neighborhood African-Americans. Yes, these authentic “blues lounges”
have dwindled away to only a handful compared to what there used to
be, and they are also often hard to find and hear about, not usually listed
in local papers, websites, ads...even in this day of easier mass
communication via the web and social media! Even the local free paper,
the Chicago Reader, hardly has any Chicago blues listings these days (I
have some Readers from the mid ‘70’s that are 3 pages full of blues
clubs! )
Most devoted blues fans have known about two longtime-running
“blues oases” on the south side: LEE’S UNLEADED BLUES and Artis’
Lounge. Lee’s Unleaded’s (7401 S. Chicago) long time owner, Stanley
“Sarge” Davis recently passed away, but you can still find blues there
every week (since the ‘70’s: used to be the Queen Bee Lounge!),
including standout regular performers like guitarist Tre’ (L.V. Banks’ son)
and the Blue Knights, and the house band, the Mighty World Band, led
by guitarist Sir Walter Scott (of the famous Scott family, with brother, soul
singer Howard Scott), and other soul/blues singers like Delores Scott,
Shorty Mack, Super Percy, Sherman “Moody” Thomas, Grandmaster,
Lady Kat, Mz. Peachez. Not to mention the always colorful characters
sitting in, like the late Arkansas Bellyroller!. Keytarist/harpist, and popular
singer Johnny Drummer & the Starliters were the house band for around
15 years.
Remarkably, Billy Branch & the Sons of Blues have been playing
every Monday night at ARTIS’ LOUNGE (1249 E. 87th) for over 25
years! That has to be some type of record for longest standing regular
gigs in Chicago. Another long time running club is Linda’s Lounge (1044
W. 51st) where you can catch Fantastic L-Roy and the Bulletproof Band.
A recent popular blues club has been the WATER HOLE LOUNGE
(1400 S. Western), where the fantastic singer Mary Lane and her
daughter Lynn Lane throw down traditional blues every Friday, usually
with Rockin’ Johnny’s guitar and the legendary drummer/blues historian
Twist Turner. Bobby “Slim” James also performs there regularly.
Rooster’s Palace (4501 W. Madison) sometimes has blues, and was the
ghetto club where world-renowned singer Tail Dragger was found howlin’

These seven (soon to be eight) Classic Blues Songs
from the 1920s CDs contain some of the best—and
hardest to find—pre-war blues songs ever recorded.
Reg. $9
In addition, these tracks were remastered from the
finest known copies of each of the original 78 rpm
records. The CDs were originally packaged with the “Classic Blues
Artwork From The 1920s Calendars,” which reproduced the artwork promoting these songs when they were first released. The
songs coincide with artwork from the 1920s which promoted
them. On the inside booklet you’ll find miniature reproductions of
each of the original ads. They are all part of a massive find of
original 1920s Blues artwork, much of which had never been seen
before. Each CD contains 15-18 songs and are ON SALE!

"Specter crosses the line between modern
blues and vintage jazz of the '40s, 50s,
and '60s, returning to a musical philosophy
in which the two idioms stood across from
each other on quite a narrow street."
- Neil Tesser
Jimmy Burns...will be at the Miss. Juke Joint Sunday at 2:00 pm
Jimmy Burns, born in 1943 on the Hilliard cotton
plantation 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 appealingly melodic,
vocal-inflected contemporary guitar style to
complement the down-home picking he’d leanred
in his youth. -Scott Dirks, from his liner notes
for Leaving Here Walking
will be at Front Porch Friday at 4:15 pm
“Young guitar whizzes abound, but Johnny
Burgin is one of the few who has truly found
his own voice.” -Blues Access
“To call Rockin' Johnny Burgin's approach to
blues ‘traditionalist’ is to do him a disservice.
True, his main influence is postwar Chicago
blues, but Bugin isn't setting out to preserve
another man's music. Instead he and his
tight ensemble build upon their mastery of
the nuances of this style, using it as a
springboard for further explorations.”
-Blues Revue
Lonnie Brooks
Petrillo Music Shell Sunday at 7:30pm
Born Lee Baker, Jr. in Dubuisson,
Louisiana in 1933, Lonnie began his
career playing everything from rock ‘n
roll to Country & Western in some of
Chicago’s toughest clubs...His big break
came in 1978, when Brooks introduced 4
songs on Alligator Records’ Living
Chicago Blues anthology. By then he
had forged his own sound - a vibrant mix
of rock ‘n toll, R&B, funky Cajun boogie,
country twang & hard Chicago blues.

You're Gonna Need
Somebody When You’re
Dead (MONK 300)
Be Like Jesus In My
Heart (MONK 312)
4LPs $119.99
LP $23.99
Featuring Patton’s
recordings from 1929 to
1934 all in one set.
Includes 6 postcards, a poster and a booklet.
Contains the 3 different volumes of the Electrically
Recorded trilogy (Prayer Of Death, High Water
Everywhere and Jesus Is A Dying-Bed Maker) plus a
forth LP available only in this box.
CHARLEY PATTON, Electrically Recorded:
Prayer of Death (MONK 304) LP $23.99
It was not only Patton’s mastery of the guitar and
incredible vocal style that gained him popularity. His
rock star-style showmanship and stage antics, made
him the idol of music fans everywhere he played.
The epitome of a sort of
“dark” blues, Henry “Blind
Lemon” Jefferson lived a
mere 35 years, during which time he became the
quintessential bluesman, conjuring a personal mix of
rural and urban blues, decrying the conditions of the
sharecroppers and city slum dwellers alike. He actually got his start playing in brothels and barber
shops, where he developed his theatrical vocal
lament. Unfortunately this early genius of the blues
allegedly met his premature demise by freezing to
death in 1929 in Chicago.
Make Your Money Green
(MONK 321) 2LP $32.99
CHARLEY PATTON, Electrically Recorded:
Jesus is A Dying Bed Maker (MONK 308) LP $23.99
12 more tunes from Patton’s 1929 recording sessions. Here he performs some of his finest spiritual
blues, like the title track. One the most seminal
blues artists of all time, this collection helps keep
the legend alive.
CHARLEY PATTON, Electrically Recorded:
High Water Everywhere LP
This compilation features the two-part “High Water
Everywhere,” and “Devil Sent The Rain Blues,” making this second episode of Monk’s retrospective on
Patton another must have.
CHARLEY PATTON, Electrically Recorded:
Moon Going Down $23.99 (MONK 311)
The tracks found here feature another giant of the
Delta blues: Willie Brown. Although Brown was an
accomplished vocalist and his guitar player was second to none, he was perhaps known as a sideman,
accompanying Robert Johnson, Son House and, as
heard here, Charley Patton.
Scarey Day Blues
(MONK 309) 2LP $32.99
Despite his blindness,
McTell was a talented
musician since early
childhood. He is credited
with having created an
entire blues sub genre by mixing the hard roots of the
Delta style with the more refined East Coast style
(Piedmont Blues).
BLIND WILLIE MCTELL, Searching The Desert
for the Blues (MONK 335) 2LP $32.99
This 32-track collection of rare sides-originally
released on Okeh (as Georgia Bill), Victor (as Hot
Shot Willie) and Vocalion (as Blind Willie) finds McTell
playing alongside another amazing Georgia blues guitarist, Curley Weaver, and backing two fine Atlanta
blues singers Ruth (Mary) Willis and Ruby Glaze.
Furry Lewis began his
recording career in
1927 (his first session
is found here) and his
prowess on his instrument, along with his natural flair for storytelling,
immediately set him apart from so many other
struggling young bluesmen. These sides represent
his best material, recorded at the end of the
roaring twenties, when Lewis was a young man
at the heighth of his abilities.
BLIND BLAKE, That WIll Happen No More
(MONK 331) LP $21.99
After their success with Blind Lemon Jefferson,
Chicago's Paramount was scouting for more male
blues talent, and they found it in 1926 in a man
called Blind Blake (1893-1933), a sophisticated
guitar player who was the antithesis of Delta blues.
No one had fingers as fast as Blind Blake. These
recordings taken from 1927-28 are a collection of
Blind Blake’s early material, showcasing the man
at his musical peak.
SINGERS (MONK 328) 2LP $32.99
This 24-track collection of historic Delta blues
recordings kick off with Son House’s earliest recorded material. They include the original rare versions
of “Walkin’ Blues” (later made famous by Robert
Johnson) and “Death Letter Blues” (here called
“My Black Mama Part II”). The remaining 17 tracks
on this album are a chance for listeners to hear
some lesser known Delta bluesmen, all contemporaries of Son House.
Sitting on Top of the
World (MONK 315)
LP $23.99
Formed in 1930 as a
trio of guitar and fiddle
music, the original lineup was composed of
Lonnie, Sam and Armenter Chatmon, the latter best
known as Bo Carter, who was also a solo star of
the period. Their first single, “Sittin’ On Top of The
World,” was their biggest success. It went on to
become a standard country blues song covered
by many artists of the caliber of Harry Belafonte,
Bob Dylan and Cream.
FRANK STOKES, Downtown Blues
(MONK 316) LP $23.99
This African American singer and guitar player got
his start playing on the streets of Memphis around
the turn of the century. His enormous repertoire
of early folk, blues, old time country and popular
music, along with his influence on local musicians
has made many point to him as the true father
of Memphis blues. Stokes recorded a number of
sides for Paramount and Victor until his old time
style began to lose popularity with the recordbuying public.
Them’s Graveyard
Words (MONK 333)
LP $21.99
BLIND BLAKE, Back Biting Bee Blues
(MONK 313) LP $23.99
Blind Blake may have lived a short time, but his
contributions were monumental. His astonishingly
odd style made his riffs sound like a ragtime piano
and his particular finger picking inspired many
modern blues artists.
TOMMY JOHNSON, Cool Drink of Water Blues
(MONK 320) 2LP $32.99
Tommy Johnson was one of the great early talents
of the Delta Blues style. Recorded in Memphis and
Wisconsin in 1928 and 1929, these 17 tracks represent Johnson's complete recorded works from
those two years, and capture Johnson in his prime.
There is also some lesser known material included
here like, "Ridin Horse" and "Alcohol and Jake
Blues", taken from what is believed to be the only
remaining copy of the original 78!
Bessie Smith was the
greatest of all prewar
blues singers, and perhaps the greatest female
blues singer of all time, as these meticulously
restored sides from the very apex of her career in
1927 so divinely prove. In her short lifetime (she
died in a car accident at age 42), she made close
to 200 recordings, teaming up with just about every
talented black musician of her day, including
Clarence Williams, Charlie Green, Joe Smith, James
P. Johnson, Louis Armstrong and Fletcher Henderson,
to name just a few. The "Empress of the Blues"
fought her way to the top of the recording industry
to become the biggest selling and highest paid
black recording artist of the roaring twenties. These
recordings all made in New York City in 1927
include her best known sides, including "Back Water
Blues", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down
And Out,” and "After You’ve Gone".

Between 1974 and 1980, Bill Smith was actively presenting Toronto concerts by a newly emerging jazz avant-garde and recording their work for the Sackville label. Many of the recordings are intimate solo and duet performances. All testify to the creative
vigour of the period, to Smith’s musical vision, and his attention to detail. $14.98 each (the 2-cd set is $19.98).

“As blues artists go J.B. Hutto is definitely
hardcore with an uncompromising guitar style
born out of Elmore James, transformed into an

found an outlet in the Chicago blues clubs in
the ’50s and ’60s.”

"The funky and often soul-drenched flavor of
Johnson's music is always crisply new; and his
'nuff-said guitar action, though of West Side
origin, is uniquely Jimmy Johnson... His raw,
musical honesty, voracious licks, soothing runs,
and keenly-tuned vocals attest to the high
standards of Jimmy Johnson's blues. This is one
of his best!"

“The great Milton Campbell always renders the
stylistic dividing line between blues and soul
irrelevant. Performing for 2,000 Indiana jailbirds at
the beginning of 1983, he acts out song lyrics with
tremendously believable emotion, using his steelsturdy, low singing voice to plead for fair play and
happiness in the midst of adversity.”

“Song after song, Young
displays a voice that reveals her
years spent studying blues,
gospel, soul and rock. Her roots
are obvious, but her method
makes it clear that she's
learned her lessons well.”
