La storia del BluesIt’s just out to Hoepli “The story of the blues” by Roberto Caselli, journalist and music critic, author of the encyclopedic volume “100 ideal records to understand the blues” and monographs on Paolo Conte, Joan Baez, Leonard Coen. The volume – organized as “The history of rock” by Ezio Guaitamacchi and recently published by the same publisher – is like an overview of the long history of the most symbolic music of all time. In addition to being a sort of encyclopedia, from slavery to the present day, obviously passing through the sixties and interpretations both American and Anglo-Saxon music of the devil, “The story of the blues” is set up as a kind of vocabulary. In which you can find curiosities, quotes, with great depth analysis of the songs, discography, quotes etc. Which define the profile of a very diversified and deep production. As stated in the preface, “This book tells the acoustic, rural and urban areas blues, the electric motor and then the blues-rock, whose thousand influences that ensued are represented here as it unfolds gradually. They will meet famous people like Robert Johnson, Bessie Smith, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, and hundreds of other lesser known, but equally significant, that allowed a development unthinkable styles and incredible stories to tell”. And, at the same time, the developer chases the most kaleidoscopic reflections of the phenomenon. Reflections going to shatter on the history of rock, as well as in the lives of all music fans. Besides, the blues is also a good metaphor of the nature of man: “always looking good and always ready to stumble in evil”.
