#Blues is the #mother of #jazz – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace #Music

Blues is the mother of jazz. From Free Jazz to Swing. No one can tell me how to sing blues. My ancestors owned that sh*t. Appropriate it all you like.

Ignorants blaming singers singing off. What about the other musicians playing out of tune. Not playing in the singers key?

Here is a great read for those who still don’t compute what I’m saying.

Especially Europeans who think they invented jazz or those who like to disrespect gospel music in jazz progressively; a poignant benchmark in jazz, historically, from blues, without which – you have nothing ..’ –

Some Europeans carrying on about jazz make me laugh when they act as if it’s their legacy and not black origin music. That’s a blues for you to note.
