blues

On the Sunday afternoon after Thanksgiving Day, there will be a homage to the late Jimmy Trujillo at Jazz@Jacks on the upper level of the Denver Pavilions on the 16th Street Mall, Downtown Denver, Sunday, November 30th.  It starts at 1 pm and will conclude at 5 pm with many musicians playing to honor Jimmy's musical contributions to Denver.

The Blues are all about the stories, and there are many stories out there about the women and men who create this music.  Edward Komara, former Blues archivist of the University of Mississippi, and his successor Greg Johnson pulled together perhaps the definitive bibliography of books about the blues in their new release,  100 Books Every Blues Fan Should Own (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014).  We reached Ed Komara at his current post as the Crane Librarian of Music at the State University of New York at Potsdam.
