In theory, a B.B. King album featuring 13 duets with a variety of different artists could be spectacular, but Deuces Wild feels like it was conceived with the bottom line in mind. Instead of choosing artists who would complement B.B., the producers assembled a lineup that would appeal to a broad audience, from old blues fans and rockers to contemporary country, urban R&B, and hip-hop fans. Not surprisingly, the end result is quite uneven, ranging from the sublime to the terribly awkward. It also comes as no surprise that the veterans acquit themselves the best -- Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Dr. John, Joe Cocker, and Willie Nelson all sound terrific, while the Rolling Stones' support on "Paying the Cost to Be the Boss" positively smokes -- while Tracy Chapman sounds surprisingly soulful on "The Thrill Is Gone." However, the teamings with Simply Red's Mick Hucknall, D'Angelo, Marty Stuart, and rapper Heavy D are simply clumsy, with neither party sounding particularly comfortable. There are enough good moments on Deuces Wild to make it worthwhile for hardcore B.B. fans, but when they're placed in context with the bad cuts, the overwhelming impression is that the album is a bit of a wasted opportunity.

J.J. Cale: l’eremita del blues

A più di cinque anni dalla sua scomparsa, non si può dimenticare quella fonte vitale di musica che è stato il lavoro di J.J. Cale. Con la sua fusione unica di blues, folk, country e jazz, quest'uomo venerato da Eric Clapton, che visse per un po' anche in un trailer-park, continua ad essere uno degli asceti più influenti del rock.

Johnny Cash dietro le sbarre

Due leggendari album dal vivo pubblicati alla fine degli anni Sessanta hanno dato un enorme spinta alla carriera di Johnny Cash trasformandolo in una star internazionale. Si tratta di due dischi diversi da tutti gli altri: sono stati registrati in prigione. Ma cosa ha portato il Man in Black a ritrovarsi in una sala da concerto così insolita?

British blues boom, cronaca di una rivoluzione

Se Joe Bonamassa ritornò con British Blues Explosion, un anno dopo Blue And Lonesome dei Rolling Stones, fu perché il boom del blues inglese si rivelò essere qualcosa di più di una semplice moda... Più che una semplice tendenza musicale, l'interesse di una giovane generazione per le grandi icone del blues americano, ignorate nella loro terra, generò un'autentica rivoluzione guidata da tre principali agitatori: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck e Jimmy Page, considerati oltre la Manica, niente meno che la Santissima Trinità della storia del rock o della chitarra. Sebbene non fossero gli unici musicisti coinvolti, fu attraverso le loro rispettive carriere che si scoprì che il blues, lungi dall'essere una musica che aveva passato la sua data di scadenza, era come un salto verso altre dimensioni musicali che avrebbe permesso molteplici innovazioni.
