        Directed by Patrick Branson. With Dean Alger, Houston Baker, Terence Blanchard, Drumma Boy. America's Blues takes a new angle on the Blues, focusing on, not only the musical impact it has had on all forms of Popular American Music, but also the influence it has had on art, fashion, language, film and racial equality. Another popular category of blues book is the history or survey. One of the most collectible of these is Amiri Baraka's Blues People (), written under the name LeRoi Jones, the first modern blues book by an African American. As Baraka is a poet and black militant, this book is pursued by collectors of several categories: poetry, black.

      Author Joe Gioia investigates a hidden chapter in American music’s history that spans the ancient world to Sioux Ghost Dancers. In this excerpt taken from the chapter titled “Hey-Hey,” Gioia proposes a Native American influence on the history of the blues.

      So it makes sense, that, in his new collection of short stories, American Blues, Evan Guilford-Blake sets all but one of his stories at least 35 years ago. Guilford-Blake is known for his affection for noir fiction (his only novel is titled Noir(ish)).   From roadside juke joints to new hotels, the blues live on along the Southern Blues Trail. By Richard Schweid on J The blues, the bedrock of American music, began on a vast stretch of fertile soil called the Mississippi Delta, which goes from Memphis to the Yazoo River and southerly to Vicksburg.
