BLUES: Chicago Style, BLUES: Electric Blues

In the 1940's and 50's, a migration began.

It was a migration following opportunities for money and fame, chasing elusive jobs that didn't exist at home. A chance to learn a trade, make some real money and get some self-respect. This was the migration to the industrial cities of the US in the boom years that followed World War II. For the folks in depressed, mainly agricultural Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and Arkansas, moving north meant the chance to escape some of the poverty and racism that made life only a bit more bearable than in the slave days. As this migration went north, the music, the blues, was brought along. As the Southern bluesmen and women began their lives in the big cities like Chicago, Kansas City and Saint Louis, they began adding songs of city life to the delta-style blues they had grown up playing, listening and dancing to. With the widespread availability of electric instruments and sound systems, new styles of playing emerged. Sometimes called "Chicago" style or just "electric blues", it's a style that is a pure, rootsy music, and it's the foundation for all of the popular music of the last several generations. You don't often hear it in the arenas or on MTV, but it's in the clubs and bars where people want to get away from the glitter and glitz and get back to the power of their roots.

JW Gilmore and the Blues Authority performs this style of blues; more reminiscent of Muddy Waters than Stevie Ray, more Slim Harpo than Clapton, more Howlin' Wolf than Blues Traveller. These blues touch you in a way that no other music can. It's music from the soul, a feeling from the heart. It's funny, it's sad, it makes you think, laugh and smile. It's also music you can dance to. Whether it's showing off jitterbug moves to a fast shuffle or getting down and dirty to a slow barrelhouse blues, people love to dance to the blues. Just like the music, it doesn't have to be too fancy, and that's part of its power and appeal.

Choice Cuts, Volume 1 is a mix of live and studio cuts that gives you a little taste of what JW Gilmore and TBA sounds like in our natural setting, a club of folks having a good time. JW's charismatic personality, lively sense of humor and phenomenal musicianship backed up by the Blues Authority's tight rhythms make for an unforgettable recording. Enjoy the recording and keep an eye out for us at a club or festival near you!
