review Boo Boo Davis @ Sighisoara Blues Festival

în viaţă care au luat parte la naşterea blues-ului autentic: Boo Boo Davis. Un muzician modest careaşa cum ne-a povestit chiar el printre interludiile de muzicuţă şi versurile pline de suflet de Mississippi, cel mai mult mulţumeşte inimii sale care după o viaţă dură încă îipermite  facă ce iubeşteşi cânte blues-ul şi viaţa („Thank you, Dave.”). Blues-ul de pe maluloriginilor te transpunea instant în lumea lor, în anii ’50, pe câmpurile de bumbac, unde lua naştere o latură a blues-ului dedicată inimii şi tăriei sufleteşti („Don’t Ever Let Nobody Drag Your Spirit Down”). La cei 72 de ani ai săi, Boo Boo Davis îşi trăieşte fiecare clipă simţind şi iubind blues-ul, iar asta se vede şi se simte din toate încheieturile. Solo-urile sale de muzicuţă vrăjeau şi te izolau de grijile mondenului, în timp ce îţi transmiteau putere. Concertul band-ului lui Davis şi trăirile sale îţioferea o înţelegere mai bună a spiritului şi rostului blues-ului.

rootsvilleNaast de talrijke albums die deze storyteller al op zijn conto heeft staan bracht ‘Black and Tan Records’ ook nog eens in eigen beheer een serie uit van  studio albums van deze Doug MacLeod tussen 2002 en 2008. De missing link was in deze verzameling misschien wel deze ‘Live In Europe’.
