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.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good piece of work; good reading. 25 août 2014

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.

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.

I'm in the process of reading BLUES ALL DAY LONG. Well written, most facts are straight & great stories- Wayne did an excellent job of researching the facts, interviewing almost everybody you can think of in the Chicago Blues world & keeping in moving. I'm so interested in the subject matter it's pretty hard to put down. Goins gives a lively portrait of the scene in Chicago in the 40s & 50s. Gives you pretty good idea of what Jimmy was like( I got to work a ten day tour in 92 with him).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is a very serious book about the life story of the great blues legend Mr 22 août 2014
Par Anthony Melio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I would give this book a hundred star rating! This book is a very serious book about the life story of the great blues legend Mr. Jimmy Rogers. Includes many blues legends and family members, also the many great songs that Jimmy has written and his worldwide travels from Muddy Waters days and before as well as after. The Jimmy Rogers legacy shines strong in this great book written by a fine author, and great musican Dr. Wayne Everett Goins. Like Taj Mahal said "great work. Long long overdue" I surely agree with Taj.

Sincerely,
Tony O Melio
