Présentation de l'éditeur

In Blues All Day Long , Wayne Everett Goins mines seventy-five hours of interviews with Rogers' family, collaborators, and peers to follow a life spent in the blues. Goins' account takes Rogers from recording Chess classics and barnstorming across the South to a late-in-life renaissance that included new music, entry into the Blues Hall of Fame, and high profile tours with Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones. Informed and definitive, Blues All Day Long fills a gap in twentieth century music history with the story of one of the blues' eminent figures and one of the genre's seminal bands.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 were just wild and serious young musicians determined to perfect their sound and broadcast it to the world 22 août 2014
Par Adam Gussow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
It's an incredible book. It does in its own way what CADILLAC RECORDS does in a slightly different way: it puts you in the shoes of Muddy and Jimmy as they arrive in Chicago from Mississippi: two young guys on the make, hungry to birth the new music they've got banging around in their heads, rehearsing nonstop in their apartment, and then tumbling onto the street, heading down to Maxwell Street, and kicking ass as the tips pour in. He shows you the romance and the musical seriousness. It was a revelation to realize that two Chicago legends, before they were legends, were just wild and serious young musicians determined to perfect their sound and broadcast it to the world. I was amazed at how many new shades Goins added to the story, even as he captured that deep and powerful impulse. He interviewed a lot of people--white musicians, too, from the early days as well as later days--and he takes you through every phase of Rogers's story, from first to last. He evokes Chicago's tumultuous racial dynamics without ever making race more of the point of the story than it needs to be. This is a book about MUSICIANS, pure and simple. You won't be able to put the book down.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book on Jimmy Rogers' later years 4 mars 2015
Par Bob777 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
A welcome addition to the knowledge base of Chicago blues. Information is short on the early sections of his life, complicated by the fact that Jimmy lived with grandparents, rather than his parents and even his last name changes at one point. The history of the Muddy Waters years roughly duplicates what is already available in books on Muddy.

Where the book really adds to things is showing what happened to Jimmy after the Muddy period. The 60s when he was largely absent from the scene. His return in the late 60s that grew eventually into wider recognition by the time of his death. Fascinating information gathered from interviews with people who played with Jimmy in later years (Kim Wilson, Mark Hummel, Nick Moss and many, many others).

A real revelation to me is what happened to Bob Riedy who was everywhere on the Chicago scene in the early 70s and then just seemed to disappear. Riedy offers a lot of info on that period of the 70s that fills a gap and it is nice to know what finally happened with him. If you are curious about Jimmy's music, go see a Nick Moss show. Although he has expanded past that Chicago traditional sound, if you ask real nice, I'm sure he will still do you a couple numbers in the classic style. (Moss played briefly with Jimmy in the later years.)

Well researched book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good piece of work; good reading. 25 août 2014
Par Christopher B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Jazz historian Wayne Goins’ “Blues All Day Long” is an excellently written biography of Jimmy Rogers (1924-1997), who, starting in the mid 1940’s, was one of the leaders in the Chicago-style Blues movement. Although he is not as well known as Muddy Waters, the originator of the style, Jimmy was influential in its development.
In “Blues,” we meet numerous other Blues musicians, and learn, among other things, the instruments they played (many of them played several), whom they played with, the names of their bands, where they played, what the life of the Chicago night-club musician was like, and how the race recording business operated.
Despite the amazing amount of information packed into each sentence, “Blues” is well written and easily readable. Its 316 page text is fully documented with endnotes, an extensive discography, an impressive list of people interviewed (91), a lengthy bibliography, and a comprehensive index. No wonder it took Goins seven years to research and write it.
Read “Blues All Day Long” for an understanding of Jimmy Rogers’ personality, life, and contribution to the Blues movement.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book with a few faults 4 février 2015
Par Tommy Forsgren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
In general,a long-missing piece of the puzzle that made Muddy Waters` ground-breaking band with Little Walter and Jimmy Rogers such a great - and influential music piece.Two major errors,however,stops me from giving this book 5 stars.First,Bob Riedy and his story of how the Rolling Stones got to hear the Chicago Blues - it was not by help of sailors on boats having bought records from Bob Koester and Jazzmart in Chicago:matter of the business was that Mick Jagger ordered Chess records from their mail order.And the Rolling Stones came from Richmond,outside London - not from Liverpool(that city was the Beatles`home turf).The photo section of the book mistakenly identifies Left Hand Frank as Johnny Littlejohn.Possibly these errors could be rectified in a later printing - because the rest of it is quite charming!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great blues biography of one of the greats! 22 août 2014
Par Walter Dodds - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a deeply researched volume on Jimmy Rogers, who with Muddy Waters and Little Walter defined the Chicago blues sound. The book has an intro written by Kim Wilson and endorsements from Taj Mahal, Charlie Musselwhite and Dick Shurman among others. The book really gets into the Chicago sound and its development, the decline and re-discovery of the blues. There are great insights into Chess records and the Muddy Water era, as well as information on Rogers from cradle to grave, all written clearly and engagingly.

If you are into blues scholarship and history, this is a must have addition to your collection.
