JULY 18, 2012 - For all its status as the mega-center of blues music, Chicago has to work hard to keep the flame burning. Consider the staggering attrition rate; irreplaceable heroes lost in the past year or so include HUBERT SUMLIN, WILLIE BIG EYES SMITH, MOJO BUFORD, DAVE MYERS, PINETOP PERKINS, and DAVID “HONEYBOY” EDWARDS. But on the bright side there’s the annual high-profile festival at Grant Park and activity in clubs (for starters, Buddy Guy’s Legends and House of Blues) and in area recording studios that brings the spirit of the glorious past to ardent life. Long familiar to club-goers, LIZ MANDEVILLE maintains a fresh presence on the scene as a stellar singer, an award-winning songwriter, and a talented guitarist. Pride of place for the most impressive blues album released so far this decade goes to LIZ’s new album, CLARKSDALE, her fifth overall. It was born of a special vibe of self-awareness that LIZ experienced during a recent visit to the very heart of the Mississippi Delta. “I had my original love of blues re-ignited,” she says, “when I took a post-surgery step back from my own trail long enough to breath in the deep Southern influence of Clarksdale and its environs.” In town she stayed at the Ratliff family’s RIVERSIDE HOTEL, where the great BESSIE SMITH expired after a car accident in 1937 (back then, the building was a hospital for blacks) and where, in ensuing years, music notables such as IKE TURNER rented rooms. LIZ also soaked up soulful ambience of GARY VINCENT’s CLARKSDALE SOUND STAGE and THEO D’s ROCK & BLUES MUSEUM. Versed in the classic blues of early 20th century America as a 1990s student at Columbia College’s Center for Black Music Research,LIZ returned to Chicago with a solid new appreciation for SMITH and other red hot mamas MA RAINEY, IDAa COX, and LUCILLE BOGAN.

   ABOUT THE HOST:
http://www.rockwired.com/brian.JPGBRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn't looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED's way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. "Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable." says LUSH "But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I'd be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I'm the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions."
