BUDDY GUY - GRAMMY-winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Buddy Guy is an iconic force on guitar whose incandescent solos reveal the searing, uninhibited soul of the blues. The Muddy Waters protégé eventually came to define second-generation Chicago blues with his wildly exuberant performances and incendiary guitar playing. His influence was profound across the Atlantic, where British blues lovers Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page absorbed his style. Guy's definitive 1991 album, Damn Right, I’ve Got the Blues, officially launched his ascendance, and he’s been making the most out of his late-blooming fame ever since. [more...]

JIMMIE VAUGHAN - A four-time GRAMMY-winning guitarist whose incendiary sound has become synonymous with Texas blues, Jimmie Vaughan is one of the greatest instrumentalists to emerge from the Lone Star state. Taking inspiration from the "Three Kings" (Albert King, B.B. King, and Freddie King), Vaughan began his career as a bandleader in the late '60s and formed The Fabulous Thunderbirds, whose 1986 single "Tuff Enuff" hit the Top 10 on the Billboard pop chart. He’s worked with artists including Eric Clapton and the Foo Fighters and recorded nine albums as a leader, including the GRAMMY-winning 1990 session Family Style in collaboration with his younger brother, the late guitar giant Stevie Ray Vaughan. [more...]

CHARLIE MUSSELWHITE - Rising to prominence as part of the explosive blues scene of the early 1960s, Mississippi-born harmonica master Charlie Musselwhite paid his dues on Chicago’s storied South Side, working the clubs with the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Big Joe Williams and John Lee Hooker. His 1966 Vanguard Records debut, Stand Back!, was a critical and commercial triumph that helped bridge the gap between Chicago blues and rock and roll, establishing him as a major musical figure. Now a treasured part of the Bay Area music community, The GRAMMY winner has worked with artists ranging from Tom Waits and Eddie Vedder to Gov’t Mule and the KODO drummers of Japan. [more...]

CECILE MCLORIN SALVANT'S OGRESSE - Vocalist, composer and three-time Grammy Award-winner Salvant presents her new 90-minute song cycle in collaboration with arranger and conductor Darcy James Argue. Since her emergence a decade ago, Salvant has tapped into a line of classic jazz vocalists: Bessie Smith, Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln. Her voice is startlingly expressive and rich, with a capacious lower register that brings to mind Sarah Vaughan. Now, at age 30, Salvant has blossomed into an artist and composer with her own unique vision. The evidence is to be found in Ogresse, her new 90-minute song cycle - a dark fairy tale, telling the story of a devilish monster-woman with a taste for human flesh.
