"I think the blues represents an escape from the world. The history of the blues is incredibly dark, encompassing as it does slavery and vitriolic racism, so I’ve always been inspired by the fact that the original purveyors of the art were able to create music so joyous under the toughest of circumstances imaginable."…

"Both literature and music are the indicator of the cultural level of a society. They participate, decisively enough, in the process of interaction between politics, society and culture. In addition, the members of a group are united emotionally and communicate more easily."

"I think Blues and Jazz has always had racial, political and socio-cultural implications, because It came from that type of background.

"Coming out of the ghetto is a constant theme and it’s no surprise that a lot of young kids abandoned the music which is most associated with slavery and segregation. Now many black musicians are moving back to it, rediscovering their roots and perhaps paying tribute to a great musical legacy."…

Q&A with Memphis-area musician Davis Coen - strongly rooted in blues, country and religious-based music

Posted on May 7, 2017 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

"Most of what’s considered blues today, I don’t regard as blues. It’s mostly blues-rock, or just rock, as far as I see. Blues followers generally seem to like it though so I try to keep opinions to myself, unless it pertains to festival line-ups that repeatedly book electric guitar and harmonica show-boaters."…
