THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF MARCH 16-17, 2019

The great jazz singer and guitarist George Benson is doing something great with his upcoming CD…It’s titled Walking To New Orleans and it’s remembering Fats Domino and Chuck Berry.  He’s doing their music and according to the article I read on AmericanBluesScene.com, he says he really enjoyed doing this.  Benson also say that Chuck Berry was a great showman and a great musician, and Fats Domino cut nothing but hit after hit after hit, quoting Benson.  Some of Chuck’s tunes he’s doing are You Can’t Catch Me, Havana Moon, Memphis Tennessee, and How You’ve Changed.  Some of Fats Domino tunes he’s doing are Blue Monday, I Hear You Knocking, and Walking To New Orleans.  Chuck Berry made the transition on March 18 of 2017, and Fats Domino made the transition on October 24 of 2017.  The album is due out April 26th and of course you can order the album before the release date.  I really Love to see these huge stars like George Benson paying homage to those before them… Quite touching.

We mentioned last weekend on the BluesNews that the legendary Aretha Franklin would be inducted in the Blues Foundation’s Blues Hall of Fame on May 8th in Memphis Tennessee, along with others.  Aretha will be getting a lot of tributes and I think last weekend was just the beginning.  Did you see the tribute that CBS Television and the Grammy Foundation did last Sunday Night on Aretha.  It was Fabulous.  They did a tremendous job on honoring a great Lady of Soul.  From beginning to end, the stars just kept coming and singing Aretha’s hits.  And Madea, or should I say, Tyler Perry did a tremendous job of hosting.  When Jennifer Hudson opened the program with “Ain’t No Way,” all I could say was Woah…I see why they cast Jennifer Hudson to play the part of the great Aretha Franklin in the upcoming biopic “Respect” due out in August of 2020.  If you don’t know, that is in the works now.  According to Variety Magazine, Aretha personally picked Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson to play her before she passed, and last Sunday night showed why.  Great tribute to The Queen of Soul.

And while we’re talking about the Queen of Soul, in theatres now, the never released 1972 concert Aretha film titled “Amazing Grace.” The film documents a two ngiht performance of her gospel music’s biggest selling live album.  It is said that this album is the most successful in her entire career.  The story goes that Aretha did not like it, and it was never released. They just put it away.  In 2007, a producer named Alan Elliott bought the rights and after Aretha made the transition, got with the estate and they gave it a go.  Now it’s in theaters.  You want to see the trailer, we have a link to it on the BluesNews Page at BluesTimeinthecity.com….

You got to start getting ready for this.  The Jus Blues Music awards are gearing up for their August Blues Extravaganza and The Blues Foundation is getting ready for their big May Awards Extravaganza. Both of these blues events pay homage to the people who make, write, produce and sing the music.  Even though their styles are different, they each serve a special purpose in their particular blues genres.  We’ll be talking more about these events as time draws closer.  I have already been invited to partake in the discussions for the Jus Blues Music awards, and I’m looking forward to that….What will I say…..I’ll think of something……The Honorees have been announced for the Jus Blues Music Awards in August and they are,    Irma Thomas, Lil Ray Neal, Trudy Lynn, Don Bryant, Gaye Adegballola, Y.Z. Ealey, E.C. Scott, Senator Willie Simmons, Mickey Rodgers, O.B. Buchana, Sweet Angel, Stevie J, and Little Freddie King. 

For the 40th Blues Music Awards on May 9th of this year, the nominees have also been announced.  Their categories range from Acoustic Ablum to Traditional Blues Male Artist.  The B.B. King Entertainers Award to the Pinetop Perkins Piano Player Award…The Instrumentalist Bass Award to the Instrumentalist Drums Award, and all you can imagine in between.  For their inductees in the 40th Blues Hall of Fame on May 8th are Aretha Franklin, Booker T and the MGs, Count Basie, Ida Cox, Pee Wee Crayton, and Moses Moe Asch.  Elmore James album The Sky is Crying will enter and Muddy Waters 1950 song, Rollin Stone.  I Got a Woman by Ray Charles and Bessie Smith’s St Louis Blues will also be honored.  And this is really cool.  Classic of Blues Literature is the work Lost Delta Found: Rediscovering The Fisk University-Library of Congress Coahoma County Study 1941-1942 compiled by John W. Work, Lewis Wade Jones and Samuel C. Adams Jr. will be honored.  For more information on both events, we have links on the BluesNews Page at Bluestimeinthecity.com. Big doings in May for the Blues Foundation and in August for the Jus Blues Foundation paying homage to people, mostly forgotten people in the Blues.  We have a link to the events on the BluesNews Page at BluesTimeintheCity.com……

There is an article on the AmericanBluesScene.com site by Brant Buckley entitled “Billy Branch Master Blues Teacher.”  Billy is one of the Chicago Blues Harmonica players that’s changed a lot of the harmonica playing for the Blues.  The article, which is an interview, talks to Billy about a range of topics, and a few things I did not know.  I knew he was discovered by Willie Dixon, but I did not know that Willie encouraged Billy to finish his college education, where he received a degree in political science.  I also did not know that Billy had plans to go to Law School, but after receiving his political science degree, he began touring with The Willie Dixon Chicago All Stars.  I knew he came up with the concept of Blues In The Schools, but I didn’t know that he came up with the idea in 1978.  This is a great article or interview by Brant Buckley on the AmericanBluesScene.com site, and if you want to know a heck of a lot more from one of the original SOB’s, that’s Sons of Blues, we have a link to it on the BluesNews page at BluesTimeinthecity.com.
