Complete your El Kady collection. Saudade Blues (CD, Album).
The title can be translated roughly as "enough longing", though the Portuguese word saudade carries with it more complex meaning. In 2001, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In the same year, it was made an inaugural member of the Latin Grammy Hall of Fame. It was listed by Rolling Stone Brazil as the fourth best Brazilian album in history.
Live at Blues Alley was the only solo album released during Eva Cassidy's lifetime (an album recorded with Chuck Brown, The Other Side, was also released), and it's an excellent introduction to a performer who never lived to witness the impact her voice made on her fans all over the world.
It may seem odd to consider this moment in time as a ‘golden age of the blues,’ but in some ways it is exactly that. Because of new technology, it is now possible to dive into the waters of a wide range of artists or entire subgenres of the blues that may have ordinarily slipped under everybody’s radar – except for a select few who may have witnessed the music in person. Legendary Irish Singer-Songwriter Van Morrison released his 37th studio album, Roll With the Punches in 2017, and longtime fans will be happy to learn that Morrison shows no signs of slowing down. The songs that most vividly display Morrison’s boundless capacity for energy are Going to Chicago and the cover of the Sam Cooke classic Bring it on Home to Me, which features blistering a performance from another time-tested veteran, guitar God Jeff Beck.
12 Bar Blues is the debut solo album from Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland. Its sound and style differ greatly from STP's previous releases. The design concept of the cover is a homage to the cover design of John Coltrane's Blue Train album. The title name comes from the simple chord progression known as "twelve-bar blues. In a 1998 interview on MTV's 120 Minutes, Weiland states that his then brother-in-law introduced him to Blair Lamb, who co-produced 12 Bar Blues with Weiland.
