Event Description

Joseph Leon Williams (born February 3, 1935), better known as Jody Williams, is an American blues guitarist and singer. His singular guitar playing, marked by flamboyant string-bending, imaginative chord changes and a distinctive tone, was highly influential in the Chicago blues scene of the 1950s.

In the mid 1950s, Williams was one of the most sought-after sessions guitarist in Chicago (Howlin' Wolf, Bo Diddley, Otis Spann, Willie Dixon), yet he was little known outside the music industry since his name rarely appeared on discs. His acclaimed comeback in 2000 led to a resurgence of interest in Williams’ early work, and his reappraisal as one of the great blues guitarists.

JODY WILLIAMS BLUES BAND feat. Jean Pierre Duarte

Αυθεντικό Chicago blues

Ένας από τους κυριοτέρους εκπροσώπους του Chicago Blues, o Jody Williams ξεχώρισε για το μοναδικό του στυλ. Η κιθάρα του ακούστηκε σε πολλούς blues δίσκους του '50 και του '60, όπως "Who do you love" του Bo Diddley, “Forty Four” του Howlin’ Wolf, "Ι wish you would" του Billy Boy Arnold. Στα τέλης της δεκαετίας του ’60 αποσύρθηκε από τη μουσική σκηνή και επέστρεψε μετά από τριάντα ολόκληρα χρόνια με δύο δίσκους, που απέσπασαν εξαιρετικές γραμμές και τον έφεραν στην πρώτη γραμμή της blues παράδοσης.
