Bloomfield notes
(all issues)



Bad Talkin' Bluesman by Nick Gravenites
(first published in Blues Revue magazine)

"...Man, it was blues heaven in Chicago in the late fifties and early sixties, and I was an angel in residence.
I moved out of my mother's house, I had to pull a knife on her to escape out the door
with my suitcase full of underwear and Kirkegaard..."



Percy Mayfield  

"...He spins heart-stopping tales of loneliness, despair, addiction and redemption,
timeless comments on life at the edges of American society..."

"...Creates a riveting sense of intimacy...Fuses soulful tenderness with a ribald wit..."
"...Mayfield had a gift for writing songs that can tear into your heart...
The band is on the money throughout this clear-sounding, atmospheric effort..."
more Percy Mayfield Live press quotes


poetry and essays by
Francis Clay
-- longtime Muddy Waters percussionist

"...Thoughts to remember:
Never sell yourself or your art in any manner that would shame you.
It's a good life, being a musician, so don't trade it in for a temporary high.
If your music doesn't give you a natural high, then there is something missing in your music or yourself or both..."

-- From the essay "The Drummer As Person"
