Keb' Mo' is less a blues singer than a performer who works from that conceptual base, not in the way Taj Mahal does, knowingly carrying a tradition forward, half teacher and wise elder, but more as a populist, the James Taylor of blues, say, or a less recalcitrant J.J. Cale. To criticize him for not being Skip James or Robert Johnson sort of misses the point of what Keb' Mo' is shooting for, and like Bonnie Raitt discovered, bringing a modern pop-blues to a wide audience sure beats playing authentic for purists. Either path is as fake or as real as the other in a post-postmodern age where the blues creaks along as a single DNA strand in a world of rap, metal, and neo-soul. All of which makes the blues a strange career path to use to get straight out of Compton, yet that's exactly what Keb' Mo' has done, rising out of one of toughest urban landscapes in the world by covering Robert Johnson songs on his National steel guitar. So enough about whether he's a real bluesman or not, because in the end he has to put supper on the table, and he does it by crafting a warm, wry, blues-informed version of pop Americana that wrestles with contemporary problems like how to pay the mortgage, the high price of coffee, or how to afford a vacation in France. "France," the lead track on Keep It Simple, pretty much states the case with the lines "Wake up Mama/Don't you fret/I found two cheap tickets/On the Internet," which Keb' Mo' sings in a honey-tinged voice over a patented and tasteful blues shuffle. Later, in "House in California," he sings, "Better have good money/If you're looking for a house/In California," and again, he uses a shuffle to hang the news on, looking no further into the past than necessary to put the song across. Keb' Mo' is a solid guitar player, and is a master of the easy, nuanced vocal, and he makes like Denzel Washington on this album, commenting on the little problems and travails of contemporary life with a winning grin and an assured stance that you can't help but like. Is this a great album? No, just a good one, all of a piece with his earlier work, and his debut release, simply called Keb' Mo', is still probably your best bet for a first purchase. That's the album the critics like best because it stays closest to the Delta definition of the blues, and it is a good album, but Keb' Mo' didn't trade Compton for the Delta just to stay there. He's looking for a house in California and a plane ticket to France. Aren't we all? That's the blues, folks.

Die Black Keys in 10 Songs

Seit 2001 erinnern uns die Black Keys mit ihrem gradlinigen Sound, der auf jeglichen Schnickschnack und überflüssige Soli verzichtet, an den Ursprung des Blues. Zwei Musiker: wild, brutal, minimalistisch und unverblümt. Ein einmaliger Stil, den Dan Auerbach und Patrick Carney 20 Jahre lang weiterentwickelt haben, ohne jemals ihre Seele dem Teufel zu verkaufen, der am Mississippi-Delta ständig im Hinterhalt lauert. Zehn Songs zum Beweis.

Fleetwood Mac, die Blues-Jahre

Es gibt zwei Versionen von Fleetwood Mac, die der 1960er Jahre, in die Klangfarben des Blues gehüllt und von einem der größten Gitarristen seiner Generation - Peter Green - angeführt und die andere, eine Pop-Rock Band, die zu einer der gefragtesten Formationen ihrer Zeit gehört. “Rumours”, ihr Album von 1977, ist und bleibt, vierzig Jahre später, unter den Top Ten der meistverkauften Alben aller Zeiten. Über die Anfangsphase der Band spricht man weniger. Sie ist aber genauso faszinierend…

Stax, klingt nach Süden...

Motown im Norden. Stax im Süden. Zwei Konzepte der Soul Musik, die weit auseinandergehen. In der südstaatlichen Feuchte von Memphis haben Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T. und einige andere einen einzigartigen Groove entwickelt, der aus dem Blues und vor allem Gospel entstanden ist
