Après avoir lu le bouquin "Country" de Nick Tosches, je pense, comme beaucoup avant moi, avoir été curieux de savoir ce que donnait la musique d'Emmett Miller. Tosches en fait un tel éloge que je m'attendais à être déçu... Et bien non ! Le disque est largement à la hauteur de sa réputation ! Les versions de classiques tels que "I Ain't got nobody" ou "St Louis Blues" sont absolument fantastiques, la voix de Miller faisant un va-et-vient à la fois excentrique et expressif entre un "yodel" suraigu à l'effet comique et un quasi-ton de crooner très amer. Mais ce qui est surtout remarquable, c'est le caractère intemporel de la musique... si l'instrumentation est assurée par des musiciens de jazz "Dixieland" classiques, il y a malgré tout un petit quelque chose d'indéfinissable qui porte la musique au-delà et qui lui permet de survoler les années sans prendre une ride. A avoir à n'importe quel prix.

Restée longtemps ignorée du grand public, la musique d'Emmett Miller a récemment connu un regain d'intérêt grâce, en particulier, aux recherches de Nick Tosches, le grand écrivain rock. Jetez une oreille attentive sur ce disque et vous comprendrez les bases de la culture country, pop et rock américaine. Agrémenté d'un livret intelligemment rédigé et de photos rares, ce disque est tout bonnement indispensable pour qui prétend s'intéresser à la musique des années 20 et 30 aux USA.

Je n'ai que peu de choses à ajouter aux deux autres excellents commentaires. De Jimmie Rodgers à Leon Redbone en passant par l'inévitable Hank Williams, l'influence de Emmett Miller sur la musique américaine est immense.
Indispensable !

HASH(0xa1092b64) étoiles sur 5 Nice to listen to, a great singer and the real history 16 juin 2003
Par Tony Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is simply good music to listen to and enjoy, although it is very historically important. Emmet Miller was a weird, cool, jive performer, who is fun to listen to. If you listen to him, you know where Leon Redbone really comes from. Listen to him, and realize that when Bob Wills hired singers, he auditioned them by requesting they sing Miller songs usually "I ain't got Nobody," a tune that Miller obviously takes from Louis Armstrong's great version. Listen to him and you will see a lot of him in Tommy Duncan and Leon Rausch. Probably Hank Williams never heard Miller, or his version of the lovesick blues. Williams copied a copy of Miller's performance. To my opinion, Miller's is just as good or better.

People raised on the fiction of modern "country" music may object. That isn't what this is, thank goodness. It hasn't been white-washed, formulaed, and restricted to a group of easily borrowingly repeated tunes. Instead this is the meeting of the last of the great ministrels with pre-Swing Jazz, and above all one of the many ways the masterful musical innovations of Louis Armstrong penetrated white music.
I am sure that just like Bob Wills or Hank Penny or any of Miller's real descendants, Miller did NOT consider himself part of country music. He was a jazz man of the first generation as well as the last of the great minstrel performers, two of the great strains in the history of American culture. The musicianship on his records is that of the basic Jazz combos that Columbia's predescessors maintained at the Union Square Hotel and other Manhattan studios. I haven't checked the notes recently, but I am sure the Dorsey Brothers, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and lesser known drum and guitar players who LATER went on to front or be great soloists in the swing bands are on these sides when they worked as session recorders for whosever session was scheduled that day.

Incidentally, the one time Bob Wills appeared on the Grand Ole Opry, he almost left because they objected to his drums and horns. They even tried to stop him smoking his trade mark cigar on stage (on a radio show!!!) He never returned. As the song goes, Hank Williams got kicked off the Opry as well. The currently uninformed person whose only reference is nashville, is ignorant that a broad stream of white performers from the South who were decisive in this music like Miller were inspired and informed by Black music.

With all this said, Miller is fun to listen to. His music has a nice little swing to it. He is funny. His versions of some of the pop standards, like She's Funny This Way are great are terrific.

Yes, there are some things that are offensive and down right racist here. I am African American and have been actively involved in antiracist struggles and research all my life. This is the real legacy of life in this country, not some aberration. You're not going to learn about American culture without some of this. So don't sweep it under the rug, enjoy it.
The greater triumph against racism is that Miller helped bring much of the Black style into white southern and Western music.

HASH(0xa1092c78) étoiles sur 5 Emmett Miller has had a cult following for years... 30 novembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Cool people have known about Emmett Miller for years, I mean the guy performed in blackface with a bluesy feeling, and yodeling in such an appealing country blues style. He was backed by Jimmy & Tommy Dorsey, Eddie Lang, Joe Venuti, Bunny Barigan, and many other jazz allstars on the recordings on this cd. All the tracks are jazz standards and have classic dixieland arrangents. The best sides are the ones with doalouges, where he does sort of an early Amon'N'Andy thing. Emmett is cool and a blues legend. Even jazz critic Will Friedwald wrote in his book Stardust Melodies, that Milelr recorded a very credible version of St. Louis Blues. Every cut on this is a classi, and if you hear his version of I Ain't Got Nobody, you will understand why Miller was such a big influence on Leon Redbone(also listen to Lovesick Blues, and you'll know that Hank Willaims was also influenced by Miller). This is an essential cd for fans of vintage jazz, western swing. country blues, and yodeling. A great disc full of classic jazz and country blues, for an eclectic dixielandish style! Buy one for yourself and for a friend who has a good sense of humor(musicly taht is). A gem of a cd.

HASH(0xa14b4504) étoiles sur 5 A thousand Frogs on a Log never sounded so special as Miller 8 février 2003
Par Prometheus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Emmett Miller was a forgotten influence on such greats as Jimmy Rodgers, Gene Autry and Hank Williams until writer Nick Tosches rediscovered him. Now he is an American Original, and so is his sound. His Georgia Crackers is made up of Jazz greats Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey, and Guitarist Eddie Lang. Hank Williams learned his "Lovesick Blues" from listening to Miller's recording of the same. Merle Haggard and Leon Redbone have both done tribute albums in honor of Miller's musical legacy. You can listen to a Thousand Frogs on a Log, but Miller will still sound unique, haunting and memorable.

HASH(0xa1092d50) étoiles sur 5 MINSTREL SINGER WHOSE LEGACY LIVES ON IN COUNTRY MUSIC 6 décembre 2008
Par Barry McCanna - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I first heard Emmett Miller some forty years ago, on the English Parlophone First Rhythm Style Series, which included two of his September 1929 recordings. He began recording around 1924, and he had one later session for Bluebird in September 1936, but this compilation concentrates on the 1928/29 Okeh sides on which he was backed by his Georgia Crackers, a studio group which included the Dorsey brothers, Eddie Lang, and on the final session Gene Krupa.

This bizarre marriage between Miller's minstrelsy tradition and the cream of New York's session musicians has to be heard to be believed, almost as if Gus Ellen, say, had sung with Ray Noble. His nasal voice is high-pitched, and shifts effortlessly into the falsetto to which his yodel is a natural corollary (he was billed, inaccurately, as the "Clarinet Voiced Comedian"). Elements of his style would be picked up and adopted by country singers like Jimmie Rodgers, surfacing most identifiably in Hank Williams version of "Lovesick Blues".

Some of these songs were standards already, others became so later thanks to their championship by Bob Wills, Eddy Arnold, and Leon Redbone, to name but three. Also included are examples of blackface dialect skits, which give a flavour of this long gone genre, which sadly fell into disrepute and is now largely forgotten.

This is a classy production; the CD face is a facsimile of the Okeh label, and the 20-page illustrated liner booklet sets out the salient details of his career which is prefaced by a detailed discography. Remastering is exemplary.

HASH(0xa1095318) étoiles sur 5 The Minstrel Man From Georgia 23 mars 2000
Par Grillmaster Deli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Emmett Miller yodels better than Jimmie Rodgers, sounds drunker than Jerry Lee Lewis and has more fun than either one. Here's 20 sides cut for the Okeh label in the 20's. This is where Hank Williams got "Lovesick Blues", Eddy Arnold got "Anytime", and the Dorsey brothers and Eddie Lang are in his backing band (The Georgia Crackers!)and so on, but this ain't about historical interest, it's about having a good time. Docked one star for the 3 non-musical minstrel routines, but when they come on you can either hit the skip button or go get another drink.
