Here’s something that Gill sent in last week, and I meant to put up, but didn’t get to it. I fail.
Most people who know me well will tell you that I like the blues genre of music, but what they may or may not say is that I especially enjoy the earliest kind. Not that modern blues lacks anything, but the earliest stuff speaks to me on a very deep level.
There is nothing like curling up and throwing on a little Bessie Smith or some Fats Waller to get my creative juices coming. Did you also know that without Bessie or Fats we would not have some of the finest musicians today?
So my friends, what music in your life would make up your play list? I know there would be plenty of Bessie and Fats in mine.
