Barbara Hendricks And Her Blues Band Blues Everywhere I Go on LP + CD

Blues Everywhere I Go is a journey to the heart of the Mississippi Delta, on the trail of the great blues (wo)men. Having explored the repertory of Duke Ellington and of Billie Holiday, Barbara Hendricks this time returns to the sources of jazz by singing the blues. She puts her instantly recognizable voice at the service of this music: a fully rounded voice with varied tones and a wealth of color that make this repertory both fascinating and bewitching.

For more than twenty years now Barbara Hendricks has added jazz to her vast repertory of classical music, inspired as she was by Claude Nobs, founder of the Montreux Festival. What could be more normal? This music is part of her roots, the roots of someone who began by singing negro spirituals in the church of her father, a pastor in Arkansas. Having explored the repertory of Ellington and Holiday in 2008, with the LP Barbara Sings the Blues, she returns this time to the sources of jazz by singing the blues and exploring its roots.

Recorded live in Stockholm in 2015, Blues Everywhere I Go, takes us on a journey through these cotton plantations of the Mississippi Delta and shows us the diversity of the themes carried by the blues: from the poignant expression of human distress with songs such as "Dinks Blues" and the "Cross Road Blues" by Robert Johnson, to the political aspect of blues – and its important link with the struggle for civil rights in the USA led by Martin Luther King – with "Strange Fruit," "Down In Mississippi" and "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free" by Nina Simone.

In blues, the voice of Barbara Hendricks is like a good wine: it matures and acquires magnificent colors. Accompanied as it is by the musicians and partners with whom she has been on tour for years, the savor of her voice, the variety of her tone-colors make this repertory both fascinating and enchanting.
