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

Old Blues and New Technology, a Crossroads in History

Old Blues, the kind that was played in the Southern States before the Second World War, is a genre full of mystery and legend. But it is also a genre that gained popularity thanks to the development of new innovative technologies and the market economy. Read on for a brief history of the genre and its run-ins with capitalism, which gave us the chance to rediscover some country blues masterpieces.

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.
