Bessie Jones (1902-1984) was one of America's foremost singers of folk, gospel, and children's songs. A stunning musical talent who possessed an exceptional memory and driving desire to share her musical wealth with younger generations, Jones grew up on the Georgia Sea Islands. As a girl on the islands, Jones learned many songs from her grandfather, Jet Samson. Samson's vast repertoire of tunes drew upon his own early childhood in Africa, his years as a slave in America, and his subsequent life of freedom on the islands. On this Rounder release, Jones carries her grandfather's legacy forward by singing 31 songs, and even telling a couple of stories. Jones was one of the first artists to record with Rounder in the early '70s, and Put Your Hand on Your Hip and Let Your Backbone Slip includes the two albums she recorded with the company at the time: So Glad I'm Here and Step It Down. The songs from So Glad I'm Here are mostly religious and folk-oriented. The Step It Down tracks are, by contrast, full of games and children's songs, such as "Old Line Brewster," a game that dates back to slavery. Though the CD compilation features Jones' sweet and powerful singing, the Georgian diva also plays a mean tambourine. Her performance is complemented by handclapping, a chorus of children, and Douglas Quimby's baritone voice. The result is an incessant group of tracks that will draw you in, perhaps even persuading you to Put Your Hand on Your Hip and Let Your Backbone Slip.

Album Description

Bessie Jones (1902-1984) was one of America's foremost singers of folk, gospel, and children's songs. A stunning musical talent who possessed an exceptional memory and driving desire to share her musical wealth with younger generations, Jones grew up on the Georgia Sea Islands. As a girl on the islands, Jones learned many songs from her grandfather, Jet Samson. Samson's vast repertoire of tunes drew upon his own early childhood in Africa, his years as a slave in America, and his subsequent life of freedom on the islands. On this Rounder release, Jones carries her grandfather's legacy forward by singing 31 songs, and even telling a couple of stories. Jones was one of the first artists to record with Rounder in the early '70s, and Put Your Hand on Your Hip and Let Your Backbone Slip includes the two albums she recorded with the company at the time: So Glad I'm Here and Step It Down. The songs from So Glad I'm Here are mostly religious and folk-oriented. The Step It Down tracks are, by contrast, full of games and children's songs, such as "Old Line Brewster," a game that dates back to slavery. Though the CD compilation features Jones' sweet and powerful singing, the Georgian diva also plays a mean tambourine. Her performance is complemented by handclapping, a chorus of children, and Douglas Quimby's baritone voice. The result is an incessant group of tracks that will draw you in, perhaps even persuading you to Put Your Hand on Your Hip and Let Your Backbone Slip.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their electric, guitar-soaked music has become its own category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard, as Western rockers continue to be drawn towards this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Outlaw Country: Nashville Uprising

In the early 1970’s, a group of musicians from Nashville radically challenged the city’s musical tradition, its codes, its smooth productions and its clichés. With Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and a few other long-haired rebels who were deeply influenced by rock and roll, this new trend defied country music’s conservatism.

Joni Mitchell : the Blue Period

An immaculate masterpiece of 70's folk, “Blue” hasn't aged a day since its release in June 1971. But why are today’s artists still so fascinated by this fourth, intimate album by the Canadian singer-songwriter ?
