Descriptif de l'album

The Essential Taj Mahal pulls together the bluesman's Columbia, Warner, Gramavision Private Music, and Hannibal labels' recordings, making it the first truly cross-licensed compilation of his work. Given the depth and breadth of this set (it covers four decades), the listener gets not only a cross-sectional view of the artist, but also his innovative and idiosyncratic journey through the blues: Mahal has not only kept the tradition alive, he's expanded it and deepened it, tracing its roots and developments through the course of American, Caribbean, and African cultures. While there is no unreleased material here, there doesn't need to be. The sheer adventure in these recordings reveals the wealth of the contribution Mahal has made not only to the blues, but to popular culture both present and past. This is a comp to own, to be moved by, and to ultimately enjoy. Columbia issued a three-CD set earlier, but there were things there that needed to be trimmed. This leaner and meaner version is superior.

Les Grands Angles...
J.J. Cale, le blues pépouze

Plus de cinq ans après sa mort, impossible de ne pas se ressourcer régulièrement auprès de la musique de J.J. Cale. Avec son alliage atypique de blues, folk, country et jazz, celui que vénérait Clapton et qui passa une partie de sa vie dans un mobil-home reste encore aujourd’hui l’un des ermites les plus influents du rock.

La trilogie inachevée de Bob Marley

Il y a 40 ans exactement, Bob Marley s’éteignait à Miami, fauché par le cancer, un an après la sortie de son dernier album, “Uprising”, point d’orgue d’une trilogie politique (avec “Survival” et “Confrontation”) qu’il n’a jamais pu achever. Retour sur le virage militant entrepris par le prophète jamaïcain lors des trois dernières années de sa vie.

La grande histoire des musiques maliennes

Traditions mandingues ou croisements urbains, chants ancestraux de griots ou orchestres de danse des lendemains de l'indépendance, l'arbre généalogique des musiques du Mali possède des racines profondes, des branches feuillues et une sève vive. Retour sur une histoire passionnante.
