How fitting to have Big Joe Turner today. My Daddy was also known as Big Joe, he would have been 82 today and he LOVED the blues.
And you too!
Thanks so much.

I like what you say here:

“During his long career he successfully mastered various styles of the blues, including Boogie-Woogie, jump blues, R&B, Rock and Roll, and jazz in a blues vein”.

Because The Blues is where it all started. I only started listening to the Blues in the last 2 years and it has been an eye-opening experience. You’ll be listening to a “blues” track and say hey, wait a minute, that’s rock&roll. Then the next track, you got to ask is this blues, ragtime, or jazz I’m listening to. It’s amazing how we got all these distinct genres of music coming out of one source. Hey man, the blues is alright!

The man with the cigar on the first black and white photo above is not Big Joe Turner – although he resembles him a little. It is Reverend Clarence Cobbs. See also:
