    Book details


Texas Blues allows artists to speak in their own words, revealing the dynamics of blues, from its beginnings in cotton fields and shotgun shacks to its migration across boundaries of age and race to seize the musical imagination of the entire world.Fully illustrated with 495 dramatic, high-quality color and black-and-white photographs - many never before published - ''Texas Blues'' provides comprehensive and authoritative documentation of a musical tradition that has changed contemporary music. Award-winning documentary filmmaker and author Alan Govenar here builds on his previous groundbreaking work documenting these musicians and their style with the stories of 110 of the most influential artists and their times.From Blind Lemon Jefferson and Aaron ''T-Bone'' Walker of Dallas, to Delbert McClinton in Fort Worth, Sam ''Ligntnin''' Hopkins in East Texas, Baldemar (Freddie Fender) Huerta in South Texas, and Stevie Ray Vaughan in Austin, ''Texas Blues'' shows the who, what, where, and how of blues in the Lone Star State.
