J.B. Lenoir • Down in Mississippi

Review by Richie Unterberger
Recorded in September 1966, shortly before his death the following spring, this session was Lenoir's most effective fusion of acoustic blues, African percussion, and contemporary, topical songwriting."Round and Round," "Voodoo Music," and "Feelin' Good" bring the African influence to the fore, while J.B. addresses tough issues like Vietnam and discrimination more directly than any other bluesman of the time on cuts like "Down In Mississippi," "Shot on Meredith," and "Vietnam Blues." Supervised by Willie Dixon, this recording also featured top Chicago blues drummer Fred Below.


Reseña de Richie Unterberger
Grabado en septiembre de 1966, poco antes de su muerte en la primavera siguiente, esta sesión fue la fusión más efectiva de Lenoir de blues acústico, percusión africana y composición de canciones contemporáneas de actualidad. "Round and Round", "Voodoo Music" y "Feelin' Good" ponen de relieve la influencia africana, mientras que J.B. aborda temas difíciles como Vietnam y la discriminación más directamente que cualquier otro bluesman de la época en cortes como "Down In Mississippi", "Shot on Meredith" y "Vietnam Blues". Supervisado por Willie Dixon, esta grabación también contó con la participación del baterista de Chicago Fred Below.
