The Blues Show

      The Blues Show

   The Blues Show with Jonny Meister airs Saturday nights

                       from 7PM to Midnight on WXPN.


Coming Up On  The Blues Show  August 20, 2016:

Songs from the new box set Rumba Blues From The 1940s: Latin Music Shaping The Blues, and more from its "sister" box set Mississippi Juke Joint Blues featuring songs that were on the juke boxes of Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1941, from the English label Rhythm And Blues Records.

In the midnight hour on Blue Dimensions, more trombones, following up on a recent program highlighting trombonists. We'll feature a new album from trombonist Michael Davis, and his Hip-Bone Big Band, with some great originals and a twist on the classic song about trombones, and play some music from trombonists Steve Turre and Reggie Watkins, subjects of a recent Blue Dimensions feature. Also: new music from guitarist Nels Cline of the band Wilco, an ambitious long-planned work called Lovers, Houston Person and Ron Carter on a new duet album called Chemistry, and pianist Harold López-Nussa enjoying better relations between his native Cuba and the United States. Plus: the trio of Jack DeJohnette, with two "sons of the Coltrane Quartet," Ravi Coltrane and Matthew Garrison, paying tribute to John Coltrane's final drumming partner Rashied Ali, on their new album In Movement.      

91-year-old blues pianist and singer Henry Gray, who was in Howlin' Wolf's band for some years and has had a great career in blues music ever since, lost pretty much everything but the clothes he was wearing in the recent Louisiana floods. His home was destroyed. A group of friends and fans have set up a fund-raiser for Henry Gray to help him out.

The monthly Blues Jam @ Jamey's House Of Music
on the first Wednesday of each month is off for the time being. Unfortunately, Jamey's House of Music, where lots of wonderful musicians have performed!) has been forced to cease operation. They are currently planning on reopening in a new location sometime in the next few months. Jamey's House of Music was a one-of-a-kind house-concert venue, with a very friendly and warm atmosphere, great sound, and fabulous music, and we look forward to Jamey's re-emergence in the near future.

About The Blues Show and Jonny Meister

The Blues Show airs every Saturday night from 7:00 to Midnight on XPN. Host Jonny Meister explores this music and its history not only because it is the key ingredient in later rock and pop music, but also because of its own special allure and unique power as a style of music and expression of the human soul.

Catherine Russell and Jonny
Jonny Meister with Catherine Russell

The Blues Show covers the entire history of the blues from 1920 to the present, from the best-known to the most obscure blues, with focus on the present-day blues, but with an eye on the rich history of this music and its large body of timeless recordings.

Host Jonny Meister has been playing the blues on WXPN since March 1977. Meister grew up with old blues records in the house. His father played boogie woogie on the piano, which Jonny learned at about the age of 12. Later he played in rock bands and did a few solo gigs as a singer-songwriter. As his interest in blues grew, he became especially interested in the history of the music, a history not always revealed by the rock musicians and their promoters who drew heavily on the blues.

Jonny spent a week with the family of the late, great blues musician J. B. Lenoir in 1979, and he was one of the consultants for the Wim Wenders film The Soul Of A Man which featured Lenoir, in the PBS film series The Blues. He won the "Keeping The Blues Alive" award for work in Public Radio for The Blues Show in 2000 and a "Best of Philly" award from Philadelphia Magazine in 1996 for "Best Local Radio Show".
