The blues from the Deep South of the United States is reborn in the voice of Corey Harris who, although originally from Colorado, learnt the tricks of his trade in New Orleans. Since his musical début in 1995, with “Between Midnight and Day”, Harris’ learning curve as a guitarist and singer has seen him become an outstanding disciple of Taj Mahal and Keb Mo. His latest recordings are a wonderful expressive exercise that blends a touch of Yoruba traditional music, rhythm & blues, reggae, Cajun music and even some hints of bolero, as an identifying sign of the African footprint in the Caribbean.
What Harris achieves in his phonographic records has a precedent in the recording sessions of Mali’s Ali Farka Touré and the American Ry Cooder. And also those of Taj Mahal, with Calypso musicians and the Guinean cora player Toumani Diabate. Thanks are due to JAZZMADRID for acting as a sounding board, spreading the musical investigations of this absolute gem of today’s blues music. This time we will enjoy his art in the form of a stimulating instrumental trio, together with Hook Herrera’s vocals and harmonica playing, and Lino Muoio on the mandolin. He has a perfect understanding with both of them.
