With his muscular arms and battered-but-beautiful features, Cedric Burnside could have been an actor, or a boxer, or played a boxer on screen. But his real interest is the Blues, which he practices with a style that's dry and precise, like a martial artist. Cedric Burnside is the real thing. When he was still a child, this Mississippi boy would sometimes play the drums with his illustrious grandfather, RL Burnside. Cedric embodies the Blues tradition of the hill country of northern Mississippi, which is very much in vogue at the moment (Delta Kream of the Black Keys has paid tribute to him). In the time since he released his previous album, which launched his international career, Benton County Relic, he has proven that he was more than the grandson of a legend. He has moved into playing the guitar in a staccato, percussive style. He has carved out a distinctive identity, which has blossomed fully on I Be Trying. This is minimalist Blues, dense and hard as wood, and stripped down to the essentials. I Be Trying was recorded in three days by a small circle at the Royal Studio in Memphis, which saw the birth of Al Green's best works. Cedric Burnside sang into Al Green's microphone on one track, and that microphone probably shook and shuddered just like in the good old days. The album is less rough and less anxious than Benton County Relic. We hear a little more arrangement, some melodies which almost have a pop flavour, and a sense of jubilation that is almost joyful. This is an album by a man who is carrying a flame, and he knows that more and more of us are searching for warmth and light. © Stéphane Deschamps / 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.

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.

The Doors, Jim Morrison’s Orchestra

Fifty years ago, on 3 July 1971, Jim Morrison died mysteriously in a Parisian bathtub, survived by his three partners: Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, who had worked tirelessly for six years to translate his dreams into music.
