Recorded in the legendary Abbey Road studios, Royal Tea introduces the American guitarist the legendary London venue which gave birth to While My Guitar Gently Weeps, the prolific collaboration between the Beatles and Eric Clapton in the summer of 1968. Realising a long-term ambition, Joe Bonamassa finds himself in the perfect environment to pay homage to one of his major influences: the British Blues Boom headed by legends Clapton, John Mayall, Peter Green and Jeff Beck. For the occasion, the bluesman is surrounded by guests and a variety of instruments. In addition to Kevin Shirley as guest producer, we note the presence of Berne Marsden from Whitesnake, Cream singer Pete Brown, Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart and Jools Holland on keys. The modest vintage instruments used on this record were carefully chosen on Denmark Street, famous for its vintage guitars. This languid blues-rock album, composed of ten tracks, reaches its emotional climax with Why Does It Take So Long to Say Goodbye, in which JoBo’s solos are backed by feminine choirs. A work that will fit well among the guitarist’s impressive discography as his virtuosity never ceases to improve and who’s debut album A New Day Now turns twenty years old in 2020! © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

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.

10 Legends of the Blues

June 21 marked 20 years since the death of a king of the blues: John Lee Hooker. But the blues didn't follow this giant into the grave. This genre, which has been being recorded for over a century, is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records. It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.

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.
