What’s a warm spring day without jazz?
Mose Allison. The Seventh Son.
Jazz or Blues? Who cares.
Roy Buchanan. Pete’s Blues.
Roy Buchanan. Live Stock (1975).
Judy Roderick, Rock me Baby. Woman Blue (1965).
Often forgotten in the pantheon of female blues vocalists, Judy Roderick remains one of the seminal talents of her time. Here, her take on ‘Rock me Baby’ is a good example of what she was capable of. Most of her songs have a folksy vibe but with a voice like that, it hardly matters.
Kid Koala, 2 Bit Blues. 12 Bit Blues (2012).
I recently listened to this and have to admit, I was intrigued. Kid Koala, for those that don’t know, is a DJ who has in the past spun with Deltron 3030 and the Gorillaz to name a few. 12 Bit Blues is his latest solo offering and I think it’s pretty good. Unconventional, but very enjoyable.
Because you will never be this cool
