The late, great Willie Dixon said it best:
~ The Blues is the Roots, the Rest is the Fruits. ~
Everything I do has its Roots in the Blues. Willie taught me that.
Of course, the late, great Louis Armstrong had his own perspective:
~ All Music is Folk Music. I ain't never heard a horse sing a song. ~
So, I make Folk Music. Louis taught me that.
At the end of the day, it's Music!
It's in the air.
I just try to pull it out.
