THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
For The Weekend of October 20-21, 2018

 

On the front cover of the latest edition of Living Blues Magazine is the one and only Latimore.  In the featured article by David Whiteis, Latimore talks about his career, and the music that he loves.  Latimore has been in the business 60 plus years, and according to the Charleston Tennessee native, and now Tampa Florida resident says he loves what he’s been doing the 60 years he’s been in the business, and looks forward to sixty more.  I once asked Latimore how he would like to be remembered 50 years from now.  His answer was simply, “He got shot last Tuesday.”  Great article on the great Latimore in this month’s edition of Living Blues Magazine.

Believe it or not, it’s getting close.  January 22nd through January 26th, it the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge.  Blues Bands from all over the world will compete for the big prize, being recognized as the best blues band in the world.  The competition is fierce and strong, and these bands bring it.  One of the things that I like about the competition is some of the members of the bands can’t even speak English, but can sing the blues in perfect English.   During that week, it’s not only hearing a lot of great Blues Music, but they have activities ranging from  Blues Jams, Showcases presented by different Blues Societies,  Health Screenings, Roundtable discussions,  and book signings.  Lots of activities that week in Memphis Tennessee and the Blues Foundation always does a great job in presenting this huge event.  The IBC finals will be held on Saturday, January 26th

And on a very sad note to me, one of my favorite artists in jazz, blues, big screen, stage and Television, and Atlanta Icon Ms Theresa Hightower of Atlanta Georgia passed away on Wednesday, October 10th… Theresa was a dear friend and one of the nicest people on earth.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tony, her son and the family.  Theresa will surely be missed.  She was a very lovely lady.  Her going home celebration will be held Monday, October 29th at The Ray Charles Performing Arts Center on the campus of Morehouse College.
