When bluesmen do Christmas they never forget to quietly sneak in the torment, loneliness and melancholy that are characteristic of their genre. The 40 tracks of this compilation from the BD Music collection demonstrate, above all, each artist's ability to make the original standards their own and give them a second life. It's a real paradox: the festive atmosphere plunges into the murky waters of a sad and miserable life. Blues legends such as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Blind Willie Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins, Big Joe Turner, Jimmy Rushing, Lowell Fulson, Jimmy Witherspoon and a few others work wonders with classics as well as original compositions, sometimes sordid and dark, but often tinged with humour. A very different way to celebrate Christmas with music. Max Dembo/Qobuz

Dixiefrog: 35 Years of the Blues Label in 10 Albums

The Dixiefrog label was founded in Paris in 1986 by lovers of American country, folk and blues. Thirty-five years later, the label keeps on keepin’ on, with its impressive catalogue (about 450 releases) and passion intact. Dixiefrog specialises in the blues, with a largely American and French roster of loyal artists and open artistic horizons. It’s impossible to capture all the interesting Dixiefrog albums here, but these 10 are absolutely essential.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.

Eric Clapton's stocking filler

A Christmas album (“Happy Xmas”) including an EDM version of “Jingle Bells”, “Lonesome Christmas” or a bluesier “White Christmas”: sound like a good idea? Well, Eric Clapton's gone and done it. After all, if even Bob Dylan has ridden roughshod over tradition (on “Christmas in the Heart”), why not "God" himself? This is far from the first time that the English musician, coming up on 74 years of age, has taken a step back from more or less traditional Blues, but this is something else...
