ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Catch Steve Cheseborough in the Black Starz! feature documentary by Robert Mugge (of Deep Blues fame), Last of the Mississippi Jukes, which also features Morgan Freeman, Chris Thomas King, Bobby Rush, Greg "Fingers" Taylor and others. And see Steve hosting "Blues Breaks" on your local public television station.
Also look for Steve's new CD, Ham Hocks & Gravy, on Chezz-Tone Records; and for his previous release Outstanding Blues.
A consummate performer and a respected authority, musician/speaker Steve Cheseborough takes the acoustic country blues off of old 78s and brings it to life. He presents lecture/performances on early blues at museums, schools, festivals and riverboats, as well as straight music performances at clubs, restaurants and parties.
Singing and playing a shiny metal guitar, sometimes adding touches of harmonica or percussion, Cheseborough (pronounced CHEZZ-bro) re-creates the music of 1920-30s blues legends such as Blind Boy Fuller, Charley Patton, Robert Johnson and Bo Carter.
Besides playing the blues, Cheseborough writes for Living Blues, South, Delta and other magazines, and is the author of the acclaimed guidebook Blues Traveling: the Holy Sites of Delta Blues (University Press of Mississippi). He is a longtime Mississippi resident with a master's in Southern Studies and a knowledge of the blues from its beginnings to the present.
"Steve did such a good job capturing the emotions associated with Southern blues, I was tempted to ask him if the CD came with collard greens." - Acoustic Scene

Outstanding Blues by Steve Cheseborough
This is the CD is exactly what I have been looking for. Steve absolutely nails the original blues sound that made the blues a lasting tradition in American music. I love this CD and will get the rest of Steve's collection.

Memphis Commercial-Appeal (Bill Ellis, reviewer)

demonstrating an uncommon command of both Delta and East Coast ragtime styles
Cheseborough knows how to pick all the right tunes, demonstrating an uncommon command of both Delta and East Coast ragtime styles. He even blows some hot Jaybird Coleman-inspired blues harp.

The Daily Mississippian (Justin Showah, reviewer)

reminiscent of one of blues historian Alan Lomax’s impromptu recording sessions
Cheseborough reels off country blues tunes by the likes of Charley Patton and Bo Carter. It creates a set of music reminiscent of one of blues historian Alan Lomax’s impromptu recording sessions complete with thick sandpaper vocals, homemade instruments and plenty of “uh-huhs” and “aw, yeahs.”
