THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 18-19, 2017 This is my all time favorite Al Jarreau song….Teach Me Tonight…Al Jarreau has made the transition. He fell ill last week and was forced to retire, albeit very short, for the rest of his 2017 tour.  He was hospitalized for exhaustion in LA but passed away last Sunday.  After 50 years of travelling the world spreading his music, the crooner is gone.  Teach Me Tonight is a Great song…Breaking Away is great, as is Mornin and Roof Garden… who could forget the 1981 hit….We’re in This Love Together or the 1983 hit….Black and Blues.. and what about Distracted from 1980……Love me some Al Jarreau….. Love me some Al Jarreau music…. Renowned worldwide, Multiple Grammy award winner Al Jerreau was 76 years of age…Our condolences go out to the Al Jarreau Family…..We have a link to his web site on the BluesNews Page at bluestimeinthecity.com www.aljarreau.com Congratulations to Bobby Rush for winning the Best Traditional Blues Album Grammy last Sunday night for his Porcupine Meat BCD….William Bell won for the Best Americana Album, This is Where I live…That’s all I saw that is of interest to the Blues…. Congrats to Bobby and William….. www.grammy.com The Queen of Soul announced that she is retiring this year, after the release of a new album.  She told WDIV Television anchor Evrod Cassimy, channel 4 in Detroit that the album should be out in September, and she will do a few select dates, meaning that she won’t fully retire, but a gig here and there…and that will be it for her.  Semi-Retirement….. She’s spent 56 years as a singer and songwriter.  She wants to spend more time with her grandchildren….. Good for Aretha…You can’t be mad with her because she’s given us some of the best music ever, with more to come….You go girl….Do your thing, whatever it is……Want to see the full story, we have a link to on the BluesNews Page on Bluetimeinthecity.com http://www.clickondetroit.com/entertainment/singer-aretha-franklin-i-am-retiring-this-year-after-release-of-new-album WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT:

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 11-12, 2017 A couple of additions has been added to the televised version of the Grammy Awards for Sunday Night….The one and only Grammy Nominee William Bell has been added along with Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr….They usually find a way of including these types of artists, but not in the window of the televised version.  William is nominated for his song The Three of Me in the Best Traditional R&B Performance category and Best Americana Album (This Is Where I Live).  Don’t know what Best Americana is….Somebody will inform me….The telecast is Sunday Night at 8 pm on CBS…. Last week we told you about an article on The American Blues Scene Magazine sight on ten things you didn’t know about Sam Cooke…It was written by JD Nash….Well, JD has up now, Ten Things you didn’t know about the Langster of Love, Johnny Guitar Watson.  This is good…Johnny’s grandfather was a preacher and played guitar.  He promised young Johnny that he would give him a guitar as long as he didn’t play “the devil’s music.” He got the guitar and before he was 15, he was playing with Albert Collins and Johnny Copeland. I bet his grand daddy was mad…..And this is interesting…Johnny saw a western movie by the name of Johnny Guitar about a reformed a reformed gunslinger….He took the name and it stayed with him forever…..Dude had a heck of a career….  Great article by JD Nash….Ten things you didn’t know about Johnny Guitar Watson, the Gangster of Love…..We have a link to the article on the BluesNews Page at bluestimeinthecity.com https://www.americanbluesscene.com/2017/02/10-things-didnt-know-johnny-guitar-watson/ WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT:
