Demetria Taylor

Demetria Taylor European Blues Cruise

Demetria Taylor

The name is widely known from blues fans, the first name certainly less. Demetria is the daughter of the guitarist, for a long time the companion of Jimmy Reed’s stage, regretted Eddie Taylor and of the singer Lee Vera Taylor. Even if she is not any more a teenager (38 springs) and even if she has already played on many stages, she thus brings out her first recording, and it is the label Delmark of Bob Koester, reference of the Chicago Blues for us, who decided to support her and to produce her. What is on good terms with this label it is that we know that with a record produced at Delmark, we shall always be entitled to the best of the Blues of Chicago in the pure tradition and for 55 years !

Elle nous offre du Chicago blues grand cru. Rien que de très classique, mais parfois la tradition a du bon : ‘Hoochie Coochie Woman’, ‘Voodoo Woman’, ‘Big Boss Man’, ‘Little Red Rooster’, ‘Wand Dang Doodle’…et on ne s’en lasse pas. Chanteuse plus que convaincante, dans la lignée des grandes interprètes de la windy city, elle est entourée d’un band excellent dont l’éclat est encore plus brillant avec la présence d’illustres invités comme Big Time Sarah (chant, 2 titres), Billy Branch (harmonica, 4 titres), Eddie Shaw (sax ténor, 5 titres). Après toutes ces reprises, Demetria Taylor annonce dans les notes du livret que son prochain CD sera fait uniquement de compositions originales.
