Super Chikan "Sum' Mo' Chikan"

What's that like? I'm still annoyed I missed him in the US due to a bus mix-up. We can always do with someone from Mississippi at BF and if we can't get Bobby Rush or Chikan's uncle Big Jack Johnson, maybe some Chikan would go down well.


Its pretty cool Bob

He's got some honkin' guitar tones goin on courtesy of his homemade instruments and I like the production side of it. Its very live sounding

I daresay I'll be spinning it for awhile yet

Matt of The Blueskillet Rovers recommended three jug bands to me.

One of them was Jim Kweskin,and I picked up a two CD set of "Garden of Joy"[1967] and "America"[1971] at Mogo Blues & Art.

Both are great listening.

The new Taj Mahal CD "Maestro" is quite a treat. He covers a variety of styles with his inclusion of some stellar guest artists this time around: Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, Ziggy Marley, Angelique Kidjo & Toumani Diabate. The first 2 in particular should supply some crossover appeal with the young'uns. They are a nice addition even though I would have loved this CD without them. Taj is in fine form - he uses that "I'm gonna catch a fish" voice quite a bit - I love it when he does that! It's a shame that he seems to have dropped off the bill for Bluesfest, but I'm hoping I'll get a chance to see him in N'awlins next year.

I still reckon a fishing trip to the Gulf of Carpentaria to catch some barramundi would entice him over. But I'd love to see the Taj at jazzfest!!

Hangin' out on Frenchmen

And a great live performer too. A very likeable guy - very warm and a lot of fun.

Hey Sharleen

What label is the Taj Mahal album on

Any idea if it has local distribution?

Hope the Hacienda has survived the recent periods of inclemency

Agree with CC Adcock - saw him 'interview' Charlie Musselwhite at Jazzfest in New Orleans one year. They did some acoustic duos, including Charlie on guitar, that were something special.

Hey there, yourself, Bindoggie! The Hacienda has weathered the recent storms quite well - luckily the storms weren't too bad out our way - thanks for asking!

The label is Heads Up out of Cleveland, Ohio:

23309 Commerce Park Road
Cleveland, OH 44122
PH: 216.765.7381
Fax: 216.464.6037
www.headsup.com

I haven't seen it locally yet - I finally broke down and got it through Amazon - even with the shipping and the bloody exchange rate, it still worked out to be a pretty good deal.

I forgot to mention some of the special guests in my other post - the disc features The New Orleans Social Club on a couple of songs, "Hello Josephine" & "I Can Make You Happy". Los Lobos also appear on another two tracks, one of which was co-written by his daughter, Deva Mahal, who sings on the track entitled "Never Let You Go". It doesn't get much sweeter than this!

There's an interview with him on the blueswax website in two parts:

Dave Hole "Short Fuse Blues".

I bought it due to the post stating that he was better than Roy Rogers.

For the record,my opinion is that he is an elite guitarist in a style that greatly appeals to me.

A bargain at the $7.95 I paid second hand.

Lucinda Williams - Little Honey
C. W. Stoneking - Jungle Blues

They both get better with every listen.

Agree wholeheartedly, Lucinda's "Little Honey" album is fantastic. Can't wait to see her at BF09. All the best Wazza.

Jeremy Spencer 'in session' and Albert Cummings 'feel so good'.

Spencer stripped back on slide, Cummings live and full on.

Both very good albums.

Dion (I am unashamedly a great fan) Heroes:Giants of Early Guitar Rock. Just a wonderful revisiting of some classic songs !
Albert Castiglia (Ka-steel-ya) These Are the Days: Look, all I can say is, check him out, great blues and great energy: albertcastiglia.com Enjoy !
Neil Diamond.. Home Before Dark. No no...this is wonderful. Mojo performer of the year 2008 and this is why. Intensely personal but superb listening.
Cheers, Don
