Nuevo Disco Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite - 100 Years Of Blues


 El guitarrista del Salón de la Fama del Rock And Roll, Elvin Bishop, y el armónico ganador del Grammy Charlie Musselwhite lanzan su primer álbum como dúo, 100 Years of Blues, el 25 de septiembre de 2020 en Alligator Records. Ambos tienen carreras musicales largas y distinguidas que se remontan a la década de 1960, han realizado giras por el mundo y otros lugares, y han rastreado docenas de álbumes, pero nunca han lanzado un disco de ellos dos solos sacando sus blues. Eso es un poco sorprendente, considerando que son amigos cercanos y compañeros de pesca, pero la vida es ajetreada cuando estás entre los mejores músicos de blues del mundo. Producida por Kid Andersen, 100 Years of Blues es un tipo de sesión de porche trasero que presenta nueve nuevas canciones originales de Elvin y Charlie y versiones de temas de Roosevelt Sykes, Leroy Carr y Sonny Boy Williamson. Es el tipo de set blues que más aman los fanáticos del blues: sin adornos, crudo y real, sin nada que se interponga en lo que estos dos hacen mejor. Elvin y Charlie llevan empapados de blues desde su infancia en el sur de Estados Unidos. Bishop surgió en Oklahoma y Musselwhite en Mississippi y Memphis, Tennessee. Ambos comenzaron a tocar sus instrumentos sin planes de convertirse en profesionales, pero ambos también terminaron en Chicago, la capital del blues, a principios de los 60. Bishop vino al norte para asistir a la universidad y Musselwhite vino en busca de trabajo. Terminaron siendo algunos de los únicos rostros blancos en los clubes de blues del South Side de Chicago, pero fueron rápidamente aceptados por los músicos veteranos que conocieron: Elvin de Little Smokey Smothers, Hound Dog Taylor, J.T. Brown, Junior Wells y Charlie de Big Joe Williams, Big Walter Horton y, finalmente, de Muddy Waters. Ambos hombres ganaron fama al presentar la música blues al público del rock and roll. Bishop lo hizo con The Paul Butterfield Blues Band y su propio grupo Elvin Bishop Group y Musselwhite dejaron su huella con sus amplias e influyentes grabaciones como líder de su propia banda. Los dos se han mantenido en el nivel más alto de los músicos estadounidenses desde entonces y se han convertido en partes permanentes de la historia del blues.

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame guitarist Elvin Bishop and Grammy-winning harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite drop their first-ever album as a duo, 100 Years of Blues, September 25th, 2020 on Alligator Records. Both have long, distinguished musical careers that reach back to the 1960s, have toured the world and elsewhere, and have tracked dozens of albums but have never released a record of just the two of them putting out their blues. That’s a little surprising, considering that they’re close friends and fishing buddies, but life is busy when you’re among the finest blues musicians in the world. Produced by Kid Andersen, 100 Years of Blues is a lowdown, back porch type of session that features nine new original songs by Elvin and Charlie and covers of numbers by Roosevelt Sykes, Leroy Carr and Sonny Boy Williamson. It’s the kind of set blues fans love the best: unadorned, raw, and real, with nothing to get in the way of what these two do best. Elvin and Charlie have been soaking the blues up since their childhoods in the American South. Bishop came up in Oklahoma and Musselwhite in Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee. Both began playing their instruments with no plans to become pros but both also wound up in Chicago, the blues capital, in the early 60s. Bishop came north to attend college and Musselwhite came looking for work. They ended up being some of the only white faces in Chicago’s South Side blues clubs but were quickly accepted by the veteran musicians they met – Elvin by Little Smokey Smothers, Hound Dog Taylor, J.T. Brown, and Junior Wells, and Charlie by Big Joe Williams, Big Walter Horton, and, eventually, by Muddy Waters. Both men went on to win fame by introducing blues music to the rock and roll crowd. Bishop did it with The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and his own genre-bending Elvin Bishop Group and Musselwhite made his mark with his wide-ranging and influential recordings as the leader of his own band. The two have remained in the top level of American musicians ever since and have become permanent parts of blues history.
