Chicago Blues


Notes

What is now referred to as the classic Chicago Blues style was developed in the late '40s and early '50s, taking Delta blues, fully amplifying it and putting it into a small-band context. Adding drums, bass, and piano to the basic string band and harmonica aggregation, the style created the now standard blues band lineup.

The first track I'm catching on this is the famous "As the Years go passing by" - which I've heard many times from Frenton Robinson. Great to hear Otis Rush rendering it, he's one of the greats. Seems a very promising list to catch.... thanks!
