Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

What a great story teller the lady is.
Didn't have any of her music but do now (well Zoe has)+ it was autographed.

Not to be missed I would say.
I think she will have some very interesting things to say about the music - with wisdom but also from the heart.

Well - some artists can just get right to the heart of your emotions. It's a rare gift and a precious one. Sheila has that.
I've read that folk would come out of her concerts emotionally drained - maybe shed a tear or two.
I think we've seen exactly why this past week.

Sheila comes across as a totally honest and sincere person - particularly where jazz is concerned and, I'm sure, in life too.
I'd like to hear about the Vocal Masterclass with Zoe, Ruth and Lauren.

I did, of course, mean Zoe, Ruth and Lindsey.
