In an art form such as the blues, there is a tug-of-war between adhering to the roots of the traditional sound and respecting the influences from the ancestors, and the need to create your own art that reflects your life experiences and the zeitgeist. Kevin Moore, also known as Keb' Mo', has straddled that tightrope amazingly well over his long career, and continues to do so on Good to Be—a diverse blues/Americana album with a lot of unique touches. The bulk of the album was written and recorded in Nashville, evident in the laid-back and sure tone of the production, from Vince Gill's hand on the mixing board, to guests such as Darius Rucker on "Good Strong Woman." "The Medicine Man," featuring Old Crow Medicine Show, will have you thinking back to The Band's Music from Big Pink. There's a great, mostly straight-ahead cover of Bill Withers' classic "Lean On Me". The mellow, acoustic opener "Good To Be (Home Again)" frames Keb's soulful voice in a poignant lyric about walking the streets of your youth and being revitalized by the familiar sights and sounds (prompted by Keb's purchase and renovation of his childhood home in Compton). Other nice brushstrokes include the jazzy, smoky horns and after-dark vibe of "All Dressed Up" and the heartfelt, moving lyrics about striving for social justice and young people speaking out for their rights of "Louder." Keb' Mo' is a consummate musician constantly striving to excel and be true to his vision, all the while building on the foundations of the blues and Americana music that fueled his passion in the first place. © Rick Banales/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.

Fleetwood Mac: The Blues Period

Fleetwood Mac led two consecutive lives: a blues-driven outfit from the 1960s led by Peter Green, one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, and another, a pop-rock band that became one of the most acclaimed groups of its era. Their 1977 album, “Rumours”, remains, forty years later, one of the best-selling records of all time and yet the band’s lesser-known early years are no less captivating.

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.
