Buddy Guy

Buddy Guy
Event on 2017-06-15 20:00:00

"Every time we would finish a session," says Buddy Guy, "if everybody felt good about it, we'd say, 'Let's do another.' You need about 14, 15 songs for an album, but we had passed 18 songs and I said, 'Man, when is this going to be over?' But they kept throwing songs at me, and every damn thing we cut sounded pretty good. I got the word back that the label thought maybe it was a good idea to put two CDs outone of them the slow stuff, more for listening, and the other, like B.B. King said, if you want to boogie-woogie all night long." The result has a title both simple and clever: Rhythm & Blues, the first double-album set of his storied career. But more than five decades into a life as one of the world's leading bluesmen, Buddy Guy is used to new surprises, challenges, and accolades.At age 76, he's a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to that city's halcyon days of electric blues. He has received 6 Grammy Awards, 28 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone ranked him in the top 25 of its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."The last year, in fact, has proven to be one of Guy's most remarkable ever. He was awarded the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime contribution to American culture; earlier in the year, at a performance at the White House, he even persuaded President Obama to join him on a chorus of "Sweet Home Chicago."Also in 2012, he published his long-awaited memoir, When I Left Home, and released Live at Legends, which has been nominated for Best New Recording in the Living Blues Awards. Meanwhile, Guy keeps looking to the future of the blues through his ongoing work with his 14-year-old protg, Quinn Sullivan.Now the story continues with Rhythm & Blues, 21 tracks which feature contributions from a stellar and wide-ranging set of guests, including Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Brad Whitford of Aerosmith and rising guitar wizard Gary Clark, Jr. "If you watch a ballgame, it seems like those guys are angry at one another, but when they finish playing, they go out and have drinks together," says Guy. "Musicians were doing that before anybodywe don't have rivals as far as who can outplay who, but we have so much fun letting other people think that's what it is. So it's really a blessing to have all of these guys on here." He had a specific inspiration for a duet with his friend Kid Rock, realizing that "Messin' with the Kid"a 1960 hit for Guy's long-time partner Junior Wellswas a perfect fit lyrically and musically. "I was surprised he hadn't gotten there himself," says Guy. "I saw him at the White House and I thought, 'I ain't gonna tell him, 'cause he might go and do it himself, I'm going to wait until I can do it!" I threw it at him and he jumped the fencehe did a hell of a job with it." Probably the most unexpected guest on Rhythm & Blues (which was produced by Guy's frequent collaborator Tom Hambridge, and recorded at Nashville's Blackbird Studios) is country superstar Keith Urban, who joins Guy on an emotional ballad called "One Day Away." Guy maintains that he was well aware of Urban's instrumental prowess before they teamed up. "I listen to everything, regardless of what type of music it's branded," he says. "If I hear a guitar that makes me pat my feet, and try to not go to sleep 'cause I'm afraid I might miss something, it's all right with me. Any guy who can think about playing music is a friend of mine, and the door is always open."One song in particular jumped out at Guy, a funky travelogue called "Meet Me In Chicago" written by slide guitar maestro Robert Randolph. "I really fell in love with that one," he says. "I been in Chicago 56 yearsthat sounds just like me. It's not really blues, but it's a good beat, so I wanted to see if I could do something with it."Though Buddy Guy will forever be associated with Chicago, his story actually begins in Louisiana. One of five children, he was born in 1936 to a sharecropper's family and raised on a plantation near the small town of Lettsworth, located some 140 miles northwest of New Orleans. Buddy was just seven years old when he fashioned his first makeshift "guitar"a two-string contraption attached to a piece of wood and secured with his mother's hairpins. On the new album, he recounts these days on such deeply personal songs as "I Came Up Hard" and "My Mama Loved Me."In 1957, he took his guitar to Chicago, where he would permanently alter the direction of the instrument, first on numerous sessions for Chess Records playing alongside Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and the rest of the label's legendary roster, and then on recordings of his own. His incendiary stylestill in evidence all over Rhythm & Bluesleft its mark on guitarists from Jimmy Page to John Mayer. "He was for me what Elvis was probably like for other people," said Eric Clapton at Guy's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2005. "My course was set, and he was my pilot."These many years later, Buddy Guy is a genuine American treasure, and one of the final surviving connections to an historic era in the country's musical evolution. And still, as one glorious track on Rhythm & Blues puts it, he claims that "All That Makes Me Happy is the Blues.""I worry a lot about the legacy of Muddy, Wolf, and all the guys who created this stuff," he says. "I want people to remember them. It's like the Ford carHenry Ford invented the Ford car, and regardless how much technology they got on them now, you still have that little sign that says 'Ford' on the front."One of the last things Muddy Waters told mewhen I found out how ill he was, I gave him a call and said, 'I'm on my way to your house.' And he said, 'Don't come out here, I'm doing all right. Just keep the damn blues alive.' They all told me that if they left here before I did, then everything was going to be on my shoulders. So as long as I'm here, I'm going to do whatever I can to keep it alive."

Angie Stone

Angie Stone
Event on 2017-02-08 19:30:00
with Daryl Black
Grammy nominated singer Angie Stone is one of those artists with a Midas touch. Her buttery smooth honey-toned pipes, undeniable gritty soulfulness and epic songwriting talents have been called upon by everyone from Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder, D'Angelo, Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz, to name a few. Rolling Stone Magazine once declared, "When soul music was in the lost and found, she came along to claim it." It is this belief that has made Stone the go-to woman for three different record labels when they were creating a new sound and vision. In the 70s, it was Angie Stone who helped to define the sound of the now legendary Sugar Hill Records as a member of the first recorded female rap group, Sequence. Their hit, "Funk You Up," is a classic that gets folks moving to this day! Fast forward, Clive Davis tapped Stone's iconic sound in the early 2000s, when he launched J Records. She recorded her gold-selling Mahogany Soul for the label and Stone Love. The in- demand Renaissance woman moves seamlessly from the studio and stage (she's starred on Broadway) to television and silver screen without missing a beat. A legend in this tough business, Angie Stone stands in a class by herself. In September 2015 BET/CENTRIC made Stone the focus of their acclaimed Being artist profile series, capturing just how amazing this dynamic's life and career has been.Now, at a time when some are questioning the viability of the genre of R&B music, Angie Stone has collaborated with hit-making producer Walter Milsap III (Beyonc, Alicia Keys, Timbaland, Brandy, Mindless Behavior) to create a masterpiece of contemporary R&B which combines the essence of classic soul music with cutting edge production. The resulting album Dream, which features the lead single "2 Bad Habits," as well as an unforgettable duet with Dave Hollister, promises to be one of the highlights in R&B this year. Shanachie Entertainment in collaboration with Music Executive and Producer Walter W. Millsap III's Conjunction Entertainment Inc. and TopNotch Music will release Dream on November 6, 2015. "This album is all about the three P's: Pain, then the Process to get to the Promise," says Angie. "I'm a stone-cold survivor; I'm still standing. At the end of the day I am a real singer with real issues with a real God and keeping it real!"Indeed Dream delivers straight-from-the-heart vocalizing from a master of Soul/R&B, telling truths about love, life and relationships and drawing on her experiences of passion and pain. The song "Magnet," for instance, expresses a feeling that will hit home for many women who find themselves in situations with the wrong sort of man. "I did not know this would turn out to be my favorite song," Angie notes. "This tells everyone's storyheartbreak, headaches, when you're pregnant and you're not supposed to be; when you're too giving and have gone the extra mile. When you are empty and have given all of your goods away. It is a terrible feeling. Every woman that hears that song will know, like I am a magnet for the wrong man, will be pulling out their tissues and feeling like 'been there, done that."Dream also features the ultra sexy title track in which Angie sings of a super-fine man and references friend Idris Elba. Then there is the whimsical first single "2 Bad Habits," which tabs her man as one of her "two bad habits." "Quits," on the other hand, updates the Motown Sound with irresistible, finger-popping effect and "Forget About Me" is simply classic soul balladry at its best. "Angie wrote this song over the phone, beat-boxing to it 3AM," Walter Millsap III relates. "When I got the vision, it was about a moment I was down and thinking about the Lord," Angie recalls. "I was thinking, God did you forget about me? I was singing to Walter over the phone and I realized it was a love song. The person who took care of me and made me feel safe and secure, who was the love of my life, was no longer with me. We were love interrupted. Whether too young or too old or too this or too that, pure love is just love and when it is prematurely aborted, something had to interfere. An industry interfered, not just with love but also with the changing of the music and neo soul. It was like a pass that was thrown but was intercepted."All in all, Dream is a breath of fresh air in a music landscape cluttered with too much artifice, insincerity and half-baked vocalizing. Like a good home-cooked meal, it is filling and nourishing without the necessity of a gussied up presentation. And that authenticity and depth is something Angie Stone has delivered her entire career.A native of Columbia, South Carolina, Angie Stone began singing gospel music as a child. Her father, a member of a local gospel quartet, would take her to hear many of the great gospel artists. Stone first caught the music world's attention as a member of Sequence, an all-female trio along with fellow cheerleaders Cheryl Cook and Gwendolyn Chisholm. They were the second rap group, after The Sugarhill Gang, signed by Sylvia and Joe Robinson's Sugarhill Records in 1979. The group made history with the now-classic "Funk You Up," "Funky Sound (Tear the Roof Off)," and "I Don't Need Your Love." Soon after, Stone began working with futuristic rap group Mantronix and Lenny Kravitz. She was a part of Kravitz's Let Love Rule Tour and appears on his album 5. In the early 90s, Stone was a member of the R&B trio Vertical Hold. She went on to co-write and co-produce D'Angelo's critically lauded and Gold-selling debut, Brown Sugar, in 1995, as well as 2000's Voodoo. The two also have a son together. 1999 saw the release of Angie Stone's Arista debut, Black Diamond, which garnered two Grammy nods and two Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards. The album featured the hit single "No More Rain (In This Cloud)." The Gold selling Mahogany Soul followed in 2001 on the newly founded J Records and Stone Love followed in 2004. The Art of Love & War followed next featuring the Grammy nominated single "Baby" with Betty Wright in 2007 and Stone's album Unexpected was released in 2010. Her album Rich Girl was issued on Saguaro Road via Time Life. The Renaissance woman appeared on three reality TV shows – VH1's Celebrity Fit Club (2006), TV One's R&B Divas (2013 and 2014), and ABC's Celebrity Wife Swap (2014). She's appeared in such motion pictures as The Fighting Temptations, Pastor Brown and Ride Along as well as the Broadway production of Chicago.The release of Angie Stone's new album, Dream, is the culmination of Angie's extraordinary personal and artistic journey. With over 5 million records sold worldwide, three gold albums, several Grammy nominations and numerous other awards, all coming after many disappointments and struggles in the business, Angie Stone stands as a triumphant survivor. "I am single," Angie says. "I have never done an album where I was single. I do not have a love interest. I don't have anything to pull from anyone who makes me cry, makes me unhappy and makes me laugh. This is the dream albumsomeone had to speak my language for me. Walter is the ultimate producer and he had to speak a language that I was able to speak with.someone who could speak when I was speechless. I am coming back stronger than ever."
