(Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, Hubert Sumlin & Jimmie Vaughan)
Tout bonnement gigantesque, juste énorme, mais chaussez le casque....

Chicago, une capitale incontournable du jazz. On dit mème, le jazz de Chicago. Mais écoutez, ça déménage et ça groove à souhait.
"Sweet Home Chicago" is a popular blues standard in the twelve bar form. It was first recorded and is credited to have been written by Robert Johnson.
Over the years the song has become one of the most popular anthems for the city of Chicago despite ambiguity in Johnson's original lyrics.

John Lee Hooker & Canned Heat - "Whiskey & Wimmen"
John was a true bluesman. He told stories about his life and observations of life in general. This is why he sounds so "earthy" and sparse. He reduced everything to its essentials. You're right? - he got more out of one chord than most of us can with a whole bunch of them.

I love the minimalist side of John Lee Hooker. He simply uses one chord in some of his songs but he squeezes this chord so much that, he gets much more life out of that one chord then other blues-man who go 1-4-5 chord progression and can't give such a dense feeling. One good example to this is his "I'm bad, like Jesse James". So simple and pure, yet? so dense. I love JLH
