November 6th, 2009 The Blues
"The Blues." Simply stated, without the blues, there is no jazz. Nor, for that matter, so much of the popular music that America has exported to the world, from R&B, rock 'n' roll and funk, to soul, hip hop and rap. With this show, we bring two generations of blues stars to the Arsht Center stage.
Buddy Guy is a five-time Grammy winning blues legend, whose unique, wailing electric guitar sound has influenced virtually every major blues and rock guitarist, from Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan. While his music originated in the Chicago blues school, Buddy's playing has transcended that genre, creating a style that defies categorization.
