The Life of Blues

July 7, 2016



The Blues is a good thing… least, playing the blues, is a good thing. Like an old bluesman from Chicago once told me ‘all you need is that cheap old guitar to play the blues…”.  And you gotta love how easy it is to jam the blues even if you haven’t played together much (or at all). The trick, of course, is to give them blues some life!

Here, Paul Personne and my favourite Texan, Calvin Russell (who, though not a ‘big big star’ here,  was quite popular thru Europe), show us how well it can be done.

From the INA documentary titled  “Comme au cinéma” :
