THE BLUES NEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 28-MARCH 1, 2015

We’ve been trying to find out How Mr. B.B. King is doing, and we’re happy to have his daughter, Ms Claudette King on the phone….Ms King, thanks for joining us here on BluesTime In The City….Everybody want to know how B.B. is Doing…..

(Claudett On BB)

The Man has done two or three as many concerts as anyone….Does he ever get tired:::
(Claudette’s Response)

Let’s talk about you…You have some great songs out….Is it unfair to you when you walk on stage for the expectation level to be so high, because you are B.B.’s Daughter…..How do you get around that, or do you get around that..What do you do???….
(Claudette’s Response)(Produce)

But the mindset…Is that an issue for you???
(I look at)

Well, I’ve seen you perform, and you do deliver…..Ms Claudette King, thank you so much, and this is Claudette King a super performer in her own right, and not B.B. daughter performing for B.B.
(That’s Right)

Thank you very much for joining us here on BTIC…

I’m sure you’ve never heard of the name Jack Gee, or Jack Gee Jr. In 1923, Bessie Smith, the Empress of the Blues, sign a contract with Columbia Records. That same year, she met and married a man by the name of Jack Gee. By the end of the 20’s, they separated, but did not divorce. Unfortunately, Bessie died in 1937. Fast forward to 1979. Jack Gee Jr, the son Bessie’s Husband, filed a law suit against what was then Columbia Records, which was sold to CBS Records, some 40 years after Bessie’s death. Since Bessie and Jack Gee Senior never got a divorce, Jack Gee Jr was the official heir of his fathers’ estate. There were 5 different claims filed, for royalties, payments for recordings, you name it, it was in there, and unfortunately, the courts rejected all of them… It took a long time, but they rejected all of them because they said the statue of limitations had run out. Reading the article, there was a lot at stake here. This article is on the American Blues Scene site, and it’s written by Brian Lukasvitz Esq, who calls himself The Blues Attorney. We have a link to the article on the blues news page on BluesTime In The City.com….. Very interesting read….
