Week commencing: Sunday 11th April 2021
We all love the 'Blues' the latest music, back into the 70's / 80's and even further back, back to the very 'Roots of the Blues'. We're on a mission to ensure that the music from back in the 1920's/30's, and the wonderful artists of the earliest days, are never forgotten. Join us as we go 'Backtracking to the Delta' and beyond, up to the present day, making all the stops along the way. .... Hopefully, W C Handy, would have approved ....

The Doc & Papa Dee
The Doc and I thought to ourselves. As the song goes:  ‘Seemed like a good idea at the time’ and you know what... it was!
With no plans to retire, unless the electricity runs out and we go back to gas and candles, we'll keep listening to and producing 'Backtracking' and 'Listen to the Blues Talking' with you, our very good friends right around the world.
We're two, a little long in the tooth, Blues rockers who plan to keep rockin’ for a very long time yet .... The word is, you may be sure, the Blues will keep talking' to us, and you - Find out more.

Jazz in shades of Blue..
Jazz and blues are often referred to as cousins. Many believe jazz came out of the blues, or that jazz has its roots in the blues. We prefer to think of jazz and blues as brothers, they grew up side by side. Whichever you prefer, Blue Jazz has a place here for us to enjoy, don't you agree? ....
