ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Jericho…the trumpets sounded…and the walls came tumbling down….”
(Joshua 6:20)

As a small boy growing up in Mississippi I often heard the Bible story of how music tumbled the walls of Jericho. Later on I heard the recordings of some of the best wall tumblers ever, Woody Guthrie and Lead Belly. Their music has been a guiding light in my life-especially as I have Rambled With The Blues from Mississippi to Tokyo along the tangled path, past the Big Delta Crossing to the walls of Jericho.

I recorded Jericho in Nashville, TN., the cradle of American roots music, with my good friends, the Jake Leg Stompers, forces of nature in their own right. They are a string band who always play their hearts out but never stay on the job too long!

So like the song goes, “It’s hard to hear freedom ring, 9-11 changed everything, be careful who you hate and who you fear….” And let music, tumble your walls down.

Jericho- real stories, real music, right now.

Steve Gardner
Nashville, TN.
August 2007


Steve Gardner, Mississippi blues man, based in Tokyo, Japan, sings and plays blues that tell simple stories of life and love. He plays a wide and varried collection of songs,both traditional and original, filtered though blues harps and beat out on National guitars. Steve's blues shake hands with tradition while sitting comfortably on the front porch of the present.

Steve Gardner Cds-Rambling With The Blues, Big Delta Crossing and JERICHO. DVD-Jessie Mae Hemphill and Friends. Photography books include Rambling Mind.

I was blown away by Steve's previous two albums and I was making another trip to Tokyo and I saw Steve at the Foreign Correspondence Club of Japan, where he was introducing Jericho in Tokyo. I am very happy to report that I was wrong. It has exceeded all my expectations.
Steve, I challenge you to top this one!
