On my planet, nothing really- it's all uptempo blues and one way or another, it swings.
I know there may be 'textbook' definitions and examples of each of these genres ( as well as color line/ethnic divisions, maybe...), I just know when something moves you, with that rhythm!
Ha ha! Yes these guys were rockin’ before the term “rock and roll” was even coined, except that the sax was the main lead instrument mostly, or piano. But, there is guitar in there as well. Guitar Slim, the aforementioned Gatemouth Brown, and Gene Phillips, to name a few.
After WWII, many of the big bands downsized to smaller combos of maybe 5 to 7 or 8 musicians, for economical reasons.
Jimmy Liggins doesn’t really jump on this one, but its a killer blues. He was a jump blues artist.
Salt Pork West Virginia
Yeah, I know. But if you listen to it...
Is it possible that Nick changed out the bridge/bridge pickup? Because Tj told me that Nick loved to destroy guys with their precious vintage gear using a cheap guitar!
And I think we can add "Boogie Woogie" to the list even if mostly heard on piano.
Don’t forget the blues shouters who were included in this genre (or perhaps a sub-genre of the blues).
Love this version : Looking at these old dancers clips this is true Jump Blues
I have read that Nick's '51 was actually a Custom Shop guitar that preceded the mass market models.
I imagine Tjarko may have been referring to Nick's goofy Kramer.
Yes the jump blues was very much influenced by boogie woogie, and it was incorporated into much of the music.
Happy birthday Nick.
Female jump blues!
And then there's West Coast Blues, which Jump kinda morphed into at a time that I've never been able to really nail down. A bunch of overlap between the two, with guitar becoming more prominent in the latter West Coast.
Yeah, you’re right! There were many “on the cusp” artists that maybe did a few jump blues sides, but the core people are undeniable.
One of my all time favorite jump blues guys was LA-based. You must check out Roy Milton (singer/drummer) and all the sides he did for Specialty Records!
Mike Buck's weekly radio show, just started, going on right now in Austin. TONS of great old stuff, probably a little post-Jump, but still closely connected:
Maybe not that bluesy, but it gets ya jumpin
Louie Jordan with Mickey Baker on guitar doing Caldonia.
