Big Jerry in Memphis

Big Jerry in Beale Street, Memphis…

He really incorporated the kind of musicians I was expecting to see there.. strange enough, he was also one of the rare ones! I mean that I was expecting to see a lot of black musicians while we were travelling through the Southern States, and these were in fact the ones whom I really wanted to listen to, to see and to paint.. and I don;t know hot that happent, but we hardly saw one! For some obscure reason we always landed by gigs where most of the musicians were white.

A bis exception being of course Pinetop Perkins in Austin, but this is another story… for another time and another painting perhaps!
