December 25, 2006 – RIP James Brown

  • James Brown Passes: It is with great sadness on this Christmas Day that we pass on the news of James Brown’s passing. Considered by many to be the “Godfather of Soul”, James Brown had his beginnings in R&B with his great band, The Famous Flames, and would later become one of the architects of funk music. His importance to music as we know it today cannot be overemphasized. For the complete Associated Press story, click here.

December 20, 2006 – Chico Chism Health Update

  • Chico Chism Health Update: Our friend Chico Chism has been in tentative health lately. He remains in care of the staff at the Kivel Campus of Care, 3020 N. 36th Street, Phoenix, Arizona, 85018. Phone: (602) 956-3110. He has lost a lot of weight, and has been experiencing dementia. Chico is planning on making an appearance at his party, but it is unlikely that he will be in any kind of shape to play. Chico is very excited about this party, and if he wasn’t, quite frankly, the nurses wouldn’t allow him out of the care facility. Please be prepared for this when you see Chico. Let’s celebrate and honor this wonderful person who has blessed this community with his charm and talent. We will post information as we know more.

December 16, 2006 – RIP Homesick James, Ahmet Ertegun & Tina Mayfield

  • Homesick James Passes: Chicago blues legend Homesick James passed away Wednesday, December 13, at 11:15pm. He was in his mid-90s, but his own accounts of his age would vary. He passed away resting comfortably in his home in Springfield, Missouri. Funeral arrangements will be made by his family, and the funeral will take place on Saturday, December 23 in Covington, Tennessee, details forthcoming. This information comes to us from Michael Frank of Earwig Music.
  • Ahmet Ertegun Passes: Ahmet Ertegun, founder and A&R man for Atlantic Records, passed in New York City on December 14 at age 83. He and his label were single-handedly responsible for recording some of the greatest hits in blues, such as Ray CharlesRuth BrownBig Joe Turner, and LaVern Baker. These are just a few of the great Blues and R&B artists that recorded for Atlantic. For the story of this man’s important life works, click here.
  • Tina Mayfield Passes: Word just came in that Tina Mayfield passed away this week. Tina was the wife of Percy Mayfield, and also looked after Lowell Fulson after Lowell’s wife Sadie passed on. Tina was very outgoing and supportive of the blues and remained an easily accessible public figure, especially in California, until the last few years when cancer took its toll on her health.

    It is at times like these with so many recent passings that we can reflect on the privilege that we have had in knowing these people (either personally or through their music) and the responsibility that we now bear in keeping this music moving forward. God bless these people and may their memory live on forever.

  • Recap of Robert Lockwood, Jr. Memorial Services: I was honored to attend the memorial services for RobertLockwood, Jr. in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. To see Robert’s beautiful family and the great life he had carved for himself in his hometown was uplifting and gratifying. The public viewing in the Old Stone Church, the touching memorial service in the Old Stone Church, the internment at the Riverside Cemetery, and the post-funeral repast at The Agora were a fitting tribute to a man who meant so much to so many people. One of the things that really impressed me was how the City of Cleveland had embraced Robert as the legend he is. Some new people I met at these gatherings were Jay Westbrook, the City Councilman who was partially responsible for naming a street in Cleveland after Robert, and giving Robert the keys to the city, Terry Stewart, President and CEO of the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, and Robert’s granddaughter Antunesia (Niecey) Harris, who was responsible for getting Robert his honorary doctorate from Case Western. Nick Amster served as a very congenial host and organizer. Robert Johnson’s grandson, Michael Johnson, had come to say a few words in honor of Robert. A number of guest speakers honored Robert in their own way, each contributing their heartfelt stories of Robert. Beautiful gospel music was performed at the service: Monalisa Hoare performed “Amazing Grace” and Tarah Davis performed two numbers, the sweet “Precious Lord”, and the stirring “Soon I Will Be Done With The Trouble Of The World”. A Cleveland-based harmonica player by the name of “Crazy” Marvin performed a beautiful harmonica instrumental spiritual number in honor of Robert. Later, Billy Branch who referred to himself as one of Robert’s “musical puppies” did a beautiful version of “Amazing Grace” on harmonica. Robert’s daughter, Natalie Lockwood, guided the proceedings with a strength and dignity that would have made her father proud. Among the attendees were all the members of Robert’s band, as were blues legend Honeyboy Edwards, Michael Frank of Earwig Music, Boston Blues DJ Henri Bellows (WMWM in Salem, MA), Steve Hecht of Piedmont TalentDick WatermanTravis “Moonchild” HaddixDale Baich of Blue Witch Records,  Wallace ColemanMike Dyson of the Blue Shoe Project, Steve Zamborsky, owner of Fat Fish Blue where Robert had a regular Wednesday night gig for many years, Dusty Scott of Dusty Blues, and many friends we recognized from our annual trip to Helena for the Arkansas Blues & Heritage Festival.
