Album Notes
In the fall of 2014 poet, blues/jazz historian, and Amsterdam resident John Sinclair ("the hardest working poet in show biz") visited New York for series of readings and performances. Several were with the New York based group Adventures in Bluesland. One of these was recorded. The result is an audio document of a magical night of spoken word and music released by World Wide Vibe Records as Keeping The Blues Alive.

The focus that night was on blues music and it’s rich history in America. Sinclair read from his published collection of blues essays Fattening Frogs for Snakes while the band (Phil Gammage – guitar, harmonica; Don Fiorino – lap steel guitar; Kevin Tooley – drums; Johnny Cement – bass; and Seaton Hancock – saxophone) provided a firm yet always shifting musical foundation.

The result was a truly remarkable and unique live concert event which evoked a unique mojo vibe that thankfully has been captured through this album release.
