my prior post of the most important American musicians of the twentieth century.
Please forgive me, but with all this 'free time' I now have, I'm exploring
the roots of American music!

I was fortunate enough in my youth to live in St. Louis, and to see a club performance by Muddy Waters. In the club named after him (and after the Mississippi river that flowed not 100 yards away from the club in the Laclede's Landing area in the shadow of the Eads Bridge and the Arch. The music flowed from his fingers in a lyrical cloud.

There is something about ancient blues guitarists... the fluidity of their playing and grumbling delivery of the song makes for a mellow evening.
