2011 is the centenary of Robert Johnson's birth and in addition it was in 1941 that Muddy Waters first recorded on Stovall's Cotton Plantation in Mississippi. This has given the opportunity to create a campaign spearheaded by a 2-CD compilation tracing the impact and influence of the blues on popular music. There is no defining blues, nor jazz, nor any pigeon-holing. Blues, as much as any music, is produced by performers in the right frame of mind. Whether this is based on love, passion, despair, anguish, bereavement, joblessness, substance abuse, jail, frustration, happiness, self-expression, community spirit, I don't know. Who cares as long as the output is stunning? Blues is certainly from the heart and soul.This compilation extends the so-called 'traditional' ground roots music to more modern interpretations. The 12 bar format has been revamped. The emotion is still there.
