Blues Story

Blues Story is a 2003 documentary film. from the IMDb:
Blues Story presents an impressionistic history of one of the most lasting art forms America has ever produced - as told for the first time through the eyes of the artists who lived it. Combining exclusive interview and performance footage with vintage clips and the music of many Blues legends long gone, the history of this richly felt music is illuminated - from its African roots to its American urban expression - along with its profound place in our cultural heritage. The result is a rare, first-hand glimpse into the lives of these vanishing artists, and a moving, insightful and informative look into a music that continues to be loved by millions throughout the world.


Perhaps a cup of espresso as we share a drink at the weekly T Stands for Tuesday blogger gathering hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth.

  2. I'll take some tea rather than espresso, thank you ... that is a very rugged looking mug, something hardy to hold a like wise hardy drink. I wonder what "blues" songs will be written of the unrest right now?

  5. Is that an oldfashioned drip coffee maker? Or a bubble-up espresso maker? My parents always drank drip coffee in a metal 3-piece coffee pot. Using Maxwell House coffee from the grocery store. Right now, I use a French press.

    1. I bought it as the closest thing I could get to an espresso maker and that's how I treat it, but it's really a 3-cup moka pot: https://www.bialetti.us/coffee/stovetop/moka-express-c-1_7_22.html

      I also use a French press. They make really good coffee!

  8. This is wonderful, dear. I thoroughly enjoyed the documentary. It highlighted several musicians I was familiar with. Your coffee pot is EXACTLY like one I shared today. Only the mug, which is incredibly unique, is different. Thanks for sharing the Blues Story and your mug and coffee pot with us for T this Tuesday.

  10. Blues is good music. I'll have a cup of tea and listen to some with you. Now I need to go watch the documentary and see if I can get it in before the debate. Hope it was a super T day!

  14. I love the blues! I've got to check this one out. I don't think we'd have the Beatles or Elvis or many others without the traditional blues artists. Lots of good people in this one. Years ago I had the privilege of interviewing Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong (not in this one) for a program we were doing on the Great Lakes Folk Festival. These classic blues artists have such stories to tell. I'm glad their stories are recorded for posterity.
