Birthdays-in-Blue for Blues Shouter NAPPYBROWN, Honkin’ Tenor Sax Man HAL ‘CORNBREAD’ SINGER, Pianomen IVORYJOEHUNTER and SAMPRICE, Memphis Soulman O.V. WRIGHT, and Liverpool’s Own JOHNLENNON. We’ll hear a number of the sounds that fired a young Lennon’s musical imagination. Other Birthdays-in-Blue include a pair of Jazz Immortals: THELONIOUSMONK and ARTBLAKEY.
The Full Bodied Blues traveled down Funk Alley on this show to blend contemporary funk blues with its father sound, the delta blues. No matter what you think you hear….whether it sounds like soul, RB or funk….remember…it’s All Blues!
