One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

New Magic Slim, Deanna Bogart releases from Blind Pig Records
Blind Pig Records has announced an August 28th release date for new recordings by Magic Slim and the Teardrops and Deanna Bogart, both of whom are past multiple winners of Blues Music Awards.

Magic Slim, turning seventy-five years young later this summer, proves on his newest Blind Pig release, Bad Boy, that he can still deliver the goods. When it comes to complete mastery of the blues in all its aspects and truly genre defining power of performance, he is one bad boy with few if any equals on the scene today. In fact, he is considered by many to be the greatest living proponent of the intense, electrified, Mississippi-to-Chicago blues style that spawned much of the music played by modern blues artists and rockers.

Living Blues magazine has called Slim and his band "a national treasure," and last year the state of Mississippi honored him by erecting a Blues Trail Marker in his honor in Slim's hometown of Grenada.

Keyboardist, pianist, saxophonist, vocalist and songwriter Deanna Bogart is best known as an award-winning multi-instrumentalist and multifaceted musician whose fans value the eclectic diversity of her genre defying sensibilities and talents. For her latest Blind Pig release, Deanna has produced something unique in her recorded work, a beautifully intimate effort entitled Pianoland that spotlights her considerable skills as a solo performer.

Comprising instrumentals and vocal tracks, her own sparkling compositions and well-chosen covers by the likes of Errol Garner and Harold Arlen, and solo and small group arrangements, Pianoland stands as one of the highlights of Deanna's brilliant and varied career. Throughout, Pianoland combines technical prowess with Deanna's signature soulful and utterly honest delivery.
