Chicago Blues: A Living History brings together two generations of Chicago’s greatest living tra- ditionalists in an unprecedented collaboration. The legendary Billy Boy Arnold, John Primer, Billy Branch, Carlos Johnson and Lurrie Bell—all illus- trious inheritors of the Chicago-blues tradition— have come together to honor the evolution of this music, from its creation to the present day. Why? Because Chicago blues not only laid the foundation for Rock’n’roll and pop as we know it today—but its songs, sound, masters and myths have had an incalculable effect on American society and have touched lives on a global level as much as any oth- er American art form. This group united to bear witness to the history and power of this music in its purest form, as they themselves are the artists who formed the bridge between the originators of the genre and the Chicago blues of today. Through them, Chicago blues remains a living tradition. (more)
