Arthur Adams : This Is The Future Of Blues

Arthur Adams is like those films that they made back in the 50s, 60s and 70s of what the future would look like as movie makers imagined.

He's exactly like that.

Except he sings and plays the blues. And he is here NOW!!
This is the future of blues; the reinterpreting and playing of the classics - like St Louis Blues, Crossroads, Red House & Lil Red Rooster and jamming on E-A-B (or some 1-4-5 progression) all night long.

Cartoon saxophone player Bleeding Gums Murphy taught us that "the blues don’t make you feel better, they make other people feel worse." And John Lee Hooker said, ‘The blues don’t make you feel sad. It makes you feel good.’ Music is like medicine.”

Arthur Adams is medicine.
For now and forever.
