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, le blues pépouze

Plus de cinq ans après sa mort, impossible de ne pas se ressourcer régulièrement auprès de la musique de J.J. Cale. Avec son alliage atypique de blues, folk, country et jazz, celui que vénérait Clapton et qui passa une partie de sa vie dans un mobil-home reste encore aujourd’hui l’un des ermites les plus influents du rock.

Americana, l’Amérique par les racines

L’étiquette a beau sentir le coup marketing fumeux, l’americana synthétise pourtant bien depuis une vingtaine d’années cette fusion du rock, de la country, du blues et du rhythm’n’blues. Et comme dans toutes les grandes familles, on y croise à peu près tout le monde : la fille rebelle, l’oncle cultivé, le père agité, la cousine habitée…

Les pionniers du rock’n’roll

Le rock’n’roll n’est pas mort. Mais ses pionniers encore en vie se comptent sur deux doigts d’une main : Jerry Lee Lewis et Wanda Jackson. 84 et 82 ans. Lui, poulain sauvage de l’écurie Sun Records, entré dans l’histoire en foutant le feu à son instrument, en transformant la musique d’église, la country et le boogie-woogie en rock’n’roll diabolique. Elle, chanteuse country qui s’est offert une belle aventure rock’n’roll aux côtés d’Elvis. De Little Richard à Chuck Berry en passant Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly et Hank Williams, Qobuz rend hommage aux précurseurs du rock.
