Blues for Sale
The Blues Messengers are a rock-solid innovative Philadelphia blues band who have established their reputation as a good-time jam band by playing and singing the soulful music of men like Muddy Waters, Little Walter, and Elmore James, as well as original compositions that reflect the band\'s respect for and interest in groove-driven roots music. They have forged a connection to world beat music and avant-garde jazz through their long association with Philly saxophone legend Byard Lancaster and didgereedoo guru and percussion powerhouse Harold Smith. The Messengers have also enlisted the talents of tenor sax giant Odean Pope and the vibrant vocal powers of Lisa Chavous to help spread the message in their new CD \'Blues For Sale.\' The Blues Messengers believe in the power of music to bring all people together, and in the power of the blues as an ancient connection to basic life energy. One race - human. One people, one world, one blues.
