How was Warren & Derek?


Warren was great. Did a few songs with billy Gibbons. Derek was mostly in the background when he played with Susan; but to be fair the blues is more her arena than his. He did some excellent backing work for Doyle Bramhall

Clapton was outstanding; Keith was Keff - more court jester though his Little Red Rooster was great with Cotton. Elvis C (who I love) was the only guy really out of place

Most heartwarming was the three old blues sidemen who had played with Hubert back in the day. Knew this was their last hurrah as they did - and were they proud,

On a personal note Derek and Susan posed for photos before the walked up and sat in a box for the first few numbers. And, kudos to Warren. During the final jam when everyone was going through the motions he was working. Playing rhythm slide he was fatching Clapton's fingers on his solos - to play along and to learn. Same with Cotton's solos. the hardest working guy around.

alan; did you have a conversation at intermission about seeing the limos enter the venue and you dislike for the TTB? If so I may have met you.

That article gave a good recap but omitted lots of details. Seeing so many incredible musicians on stage and sitting in with each other was indescribable: Clapton and Cotton, Gibbons and Haynes, Bramhall Trucks and Tedeschi, Clapton and Richard, Richards and Cotton, Guy and Copeland... goes on and on.

It was a real BLUES show where EVERY song was a REAL blues song.

Backup band with Jordan, Weeks, Neville, Morgan and others.

Warren was exceptional vocally and on guitar, his stlye was perfectly adapted to the material he played. He took the first verse of the Smokestack Lightning finale, and you know what Warren does on that song.

Derek and Doyle on Meet Me At the Bottom, shades of DTB, but Derek and Doyle takes it to a new level.
Then Derek brought out Susan. She sang like I have not heard her sing since the STB. Derek's playing was POWERFUL, as was Susan's. Those three should form a band...

Kim Wilson was outstanding on harp, on stage for most of the show.

That covers about a fifth of the show...

Thanks for the review Alan! I am assuming you are posting from the Fairway at the morning-after meet and greet with Clapton

While we may differ on the relative merits of TTB, I can see what you mean about Derek, Susan and Doyle doing a project together. I was downright mystified that so many people were down on Doyle's contributions to Already Free. I thought he added a lot to that record.

Sounds like a great night of music!

Nice to have the word epic used for the right reason....finally

Also nice that Susan & Derek are stepping out to do some creative work...twice in one week!

Actually there IS a Fairway in Harlem... across the street from the Dinosaur BBQ, where EC hosted dinner.

Doyle has obviously been highly influenced by Clapton, understandably, given how long they have played together, so his playing with Derek is the next best thing to EC + DT. Just like with the White House performance, Derek and Susan performed with a fire and passion that I don't see (or hear) with the TTB. Susan's body language on stage was reminiscent of the STB. After our last TTB show, even my wife asked what happened to her stage presence. Last night she was the Susan I loved to watch... following her left leg tells you a lot.

Alan; agreed. I liked Doyle's mini-set much more than when he sat in at UPT a few years ago. Susan's strength is traditional blues - which is not Derek's hence why he was somewhat in the background last night and why the TTB is less than optimal. And yes; there is another TTB hater from NJ bitching about what Susan has done to Derek and said "don't get me started" there last night.

BTW - anyone who ends up at the Apollo there is a great little French Bistro (Chez Lucienne) two blocks away next to The Red Rooster (which I couldn't get in to)

And I am going to be my incredibly repititive self again and say how in awe I was at Warren's focus during the last jam while everyone else was mailing it in to some extent. Kind of like when Jerry West sank the 70 ft jumper against the Knicks in the 70's. He is not my favorite "creative force" but he is the most professional musician I've ever seen,

Thanks for the reports guys. So glad you two got to witness this unique show.

Were there any cameras there? This just cries out for a DVD that I know Clapton is capable of producing (and it won't take 3+ years either!).

What a week indeed for Derek, Susan and Warren!

Looks like a great time. Nice set list. My favorite blues songs.

Real Blues, pretty much Chicago Blues -

A- William James "Willie" Dixon (July 1, 1915 – January 29, 1992) was an American blues musician, vocalist, songwriter, arranger and record producer.[1] A Grammy Award winner who was proficient on both the upright bass and the guitar and as a vocalist, Dixon is perhaps best known as one of the most prolific songwriters of his time. He is recognized as one of the founders of the Chicago blues sound. Dixon's songs have been recorded by countless musicians in many genres as well as by various ensembles in which he participated. A short list of the man's most famous compositions includes "Little Red Rooster", "Hoochie Coochie Man", "Evil", "Spoonful", "Back Door Man", "I Just Want to Make Love to You", "I Ain't Superstitious", "My Babe", "Wang Dang Doodle", and "Bring It On Home". These tunes were written during the peak of Chess Records, 1950–1965, and performed by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter, influencing a worldwide generation of musicians.[2]

B - Chester Arthur Burnett (June 10, 1910 – January 10, 1976), known as Howlin' Wolf, was an influential American blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player.

With a booming voice and looming physical presence, Burnett is commonly ranked among the leading performers in electric blues; musician and critic Cub Koda declared, "no one could match Howlin' Wolf for the singular ability to rock the house down to the foundation while simultaneously scaring its patrons out of its wits."[1] A number of songs written or popularized by Burnett—such as "Smokestack Lightnin'", "Back Door Man", "Killing Floor" and "Spoonful"—have become blues and blues rock standards.

At 6 feet, 6 inches (198 cm) and close to 300 pounds (136 kg), he was an imposing presence with one of the loudest and most memorable voices of all the "classic" 1950s Chicago blues singers. This rough-edged, slightly fearsome musical style is often contrasted with the less crude but still powerful presentation of his contemporary and professional rival, Muddy Waters. Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller), Little Walter Jacobs, and Muddy Waters are usually regarded in retrospect as the greatest blues artists who recorded for Chess in Chicago. Sam Phillips once remarked, "When I heard Howlin' Wolf, I said, 'This is for me. This is where the soul of man never dies.'" In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #51 on their list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time".[2]

C - Hubert Sumlin (November 16, 1931 – December 4, 2011) was an American Chicago blues and electric blues guitarist and singer.[1] He was best known for his celebrated work, from 1955, as guitarist in Howlin' Wolf's band. His singular playing was characterized by "wrenched, shattering bursts of notes, sudden cliff-hanger silences and daring rhythmic suspensions".[2] Sumlin was listed as number 43 in the Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.[3] Born in Greenwood, Mississippi, United States, Sumlin was raised in Hughes, Arkansas. He got his first guitar when he was eight years old.[4] As a boy, Sumlin first met Howlin' Wolf by sneaking into a performance. When Wolf relocated from Memphis to Chicago in 1953, his long-time guitarist Willie Johnson chose not to join him. Upon his arrival in Chicago, Wolf first hired Chicago guitarist Jody Williams, and in 1954 Wolf invited Sumlin to relocate to Chicago to play second guitar in his Chicago-based band. Williams left the band in 1955, leaving Sumlin as the primary guitarist, a position he held almost continuously (except for a brief spell playing with Muddy Waters around 1956) for the remainder of Wolf's career. According to Sumlin, Howlin' Wolf sent Sumlin to a classical guitar instructor at the Chicago Conservatory of Music for awhile to learn the keyboards and scales.[5] Sumlin played on the album Howlin' Wolf, also called The Rockin' Chair Album, which was named the third greatest guitar album of all time by Mojo magazine in 2004.[6][7]
