The good old days of Big Band R & B dancing music meant for night clubs. Before the instruments were electrified.

I am sure you know this David but people think of Muddy Waters as being the king of Chicago Blues and the most noted. Many don't realize and give credit that before Muddy there was Big Bill Broonzy who supposedly took Muddy Waters under his wing before he became a Chicago legend. Big Bill only played Acoustic Guitar even when the electric guitar became the main lead in most bands

Not exactly the same type of music you are talking about but something people should know.

I was with Muddy Waters and his piano player Otis Span at City Hall for a special concert in 1981,a few months before he died, Noah. He was born in Issaquena County, Mississippi, His close friends called him McKinley. He actually grew up down the road from where my mother was raised, Sunflower County.

David I love the Otis Span solo albums. I think he was awesome. Please listen to "The Biggest Thing Since Colossus" right now after you read this people and be blown away. Another under rated (not in my mind) super star.


Have you heard Muddys Son Big Bill Morgenfield? He sounds shockingly like dad McKinley

I like Bill's tune "Rising Son", Noah. You can hear the Clarksdale side of him. I've got descendants of relatives in Clarksdale who arrived in the late 19th century who still live there. I even picked cotton with the farm workers who baby sat with me when I was small child in the fifties. I spent a great deal of my early childhood in the Delta and visit Clarksdale and Sunflower when I can. The region has magic. BB King grew up in Indianola, a few miles down the road from my mother's home. I've been to the birthday bash for him in that little town and played with his band in 1971 for a night. I don't feel like "just another white boy" when I'm there. I'm with my family. There is no color but love when you visit my mom's home.

David you think exactly like I do about music. You ask any musician "what or who do you like" and they usually say "there are only two kinds of music in this world, good and bad". Labeling it is something that others have done.

In 1979 when I was attending the University of Chicago BB King played a concert there for the students. He had always been my hero and when it was over and I was leaving his then huge band was making their way to a big room and as a large crowd was parted by them saying "excuse me I am with the band", I join in and started saying this and entered the room. There was a huge buffet set up with food and booze and BB was sitting at a big round table with Lucile sitting there on the table and he was drinking water. I started a conversation with Mr. King and told him that I had been a fan since I was still sucking my thumb and he was very amused about it. He was warm, friendly and it was a day I will never forget.

I think including myself you are about he only other intense music lover on AR I have found.

Am I wrong? There are many people here.

I've been playing the piano most of my life, Noah. Sat in with lots of greats over the years. Ramsey Lewis asked me to stand in for him for a sound check before a concert back in the mid 70's. I played with Cleveland Eaton, his bass player and Maurice White, Earth, Wind and Fire's drummer. Growing up in this part of the country opened the doors to real musical variety. Nashville is a stones throw, as the crow flies, Clarksdale about 85 miles away, Tupelo about 80 or so, and Beale Street practically in my backyard. I've had a lot of country musicians around. Spent time with Pam Tillis, Bobby Whitlock (Eric Clapton's piano player), Joe Walsh of the Eagle's, John Hartford, Earl Scruggs, Paul McCartney tried to get in touch with me in 1991. I studied music theory with Johnny Mathis' piano teacher, Art Bayer, at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 1975, and other teachers here in Memphis. I spent a few hours visiting with Chick Corea some years ago and turned him on the grits and butterbeans. He loved it. Aaron Copeland was a guest composer here at the university and I spent three days studying with him shortly before he passed away. I don't play like I used to. Just mess around with the piano for fun mostly these days because of medical reasons from arthritis, but getting better. That's why I still love to do the jazz show on Saturday night from the University of Memphis from 9 till midnight. There might still be some pictures floating around of the night I played in BB's band at the "Nite Nite" Club, in front of the Lorraine Motel in 1971, for a Halloween party. The woman who owned the club was one of his sweethearts. I played trombone with the band that night. I was playing trombone in both the jazz band and symphony at the university then and got called at the last minute to sit in with his band to fill the brass section. There are quite a few knowledgeable music fans here in AR.
