After having a great first approach to music with his debut album ‘Let Them Talk’ on which


“Mean Old World” by T-bone Walker

Something is wrong with this life we are living. Sometimes things don´t make sense: Wars, money, women, hate, drinking, drugs.

The night is falling, the clock strikes past 12 o´clock. That is when the Wee Hours gently come to knock your door and Junior Wells unveils his harp. Wells had already done an incredible work as a sideman for Muddy Watters, but it was time to go solo in his 1965 debut album Hoodoo Man Blues, in

“What kind of Cool” by Cody Chesnutt [Everyday I have the Blues ♫]

The blues has gone a very long way from it´s beginning down in the Mississippi Delta to the contemporary streets of our beloved world.
