|Blues legend B.B. King passed away in his sleep on Thursday, May 14. B.B. was a nickname for "Blues Boy" and he definitely lived up to that monicker. B.B.'s playing style was so straight-forward yet so unique with his signature vibrato. He was quoted as saying "I wanted to connect my guitar to human emotions." As a frequent visitor of San Diego B.B. enjoyed playing venues like the Belly Up and House of Blues. He also was involved in charity work in San Diego as an ambassador for Photocharity, a non-profit that houses homeless youth. He would autograph guitars (that looked similar to his 'Lucille') and othe memorabilia that would be auctioned off for the benefit of the charity. His smile was infectious and his appeal crossed over many generations and genres of music. Rest in peace King. |
|B.B. King, an icon and world wide ambassador for the Blues, has passed away on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 9:40pm in his sleep at his home in Las Vegas, the San Diego UT is reporting in a long and heart-felt remembrance by George Varga, who had written about B. B.'s many trips to San Diego. "The thrill is gone for millions of music fans around the world", he begins, using the title from a signature piece from King's over 6 decade career in music. At San Diego's Jazz and Blues 88.3, we send out condolences to the family of B. B. King and to his fans and supporters world-wide. READ ON as Blues 88.3 hosts, listeners, and supporters remember B.B. King.|
|Clearly I'm no correspondent. Too long since the last entry is one way to look at it. Lucky to be standing is the dramatic way to look at it. New studio and delivery system has everything going sideways but forward. Muscle memory disruption is like learning to walk, or is it complacency crumbling away from decades status quo? Hey man, it's a computer.|

|One of the best things I find out in the interviews I have the honor of doing on The New Jazz Thing or as part of Jazz Live San Diego, or just in talking with Jazz and music lovers I come across is the influence of their family and upbringing on what they love as their passion and/or do as their livelihood. And while having a talented Jazz Mom may give you a little step-up in following in her footsteps, there are many other ways that our parents, and Mom's in particular as we head toward Mother's Day 2015, have put us on the path toward the music we love and play and listen to day in and day out. My Mom, in particular, made sure that we listened to big string orchestrated music which I think directly led to my liking of both small ensembles with strings and to the complexity that can come with large ensemble Jazz music. |
