IDA COX — painted by Doc Togden. Ida Cox (1888—1967) was a vaudeville performer, best known for her Blues performances and recordings. She was billed as ‘The Uncrowned Queen of Blues’
After the success of Mamie Smith's 1920 recording of ‘Crazy Blues’ record companies became aware of a demand for ‘race music’. The classic female Blues era began and extended through the 1920s. With her popularity in the South she attracted the attention of talent scouts and secured a contract with Paramount Records, the same company for which her heroine Ma Rainey recorded. Between 1923 and 1929, she recorded 78 titles for Paramount. For her numerous recording sessions, Paramount provided her with outstanding backup musicians, including the pianist Lovie Austin and her band, the Blues Serenaders, featuring Jimmy O'Bryant (clarinet) and Tommy Ladnier (cornet). During this period, she also recorded songs for other labels, including Broadway Records and Silvertone Records, using the pseudonyms Kate Lewis, Velma Bradley, Julia Powers, and Jane Smith.
In 1939 she was invited to participate in the historic Carnegie Hall concert series From Spirituals to Swing, produced by John Hammond, in which she sang ‘Four Day Creep’ backed by James Johnson (piano), Lester Young (tenor sax), Buck Clayton (trumpet), and Dicky Wells (trombone). Her performance was the highlight of the concert series and gave her career a boost after the Depression-era decline. Ida Cox resumed recording, with a series of sessions for Vocalion Records in 1939 and Okeh Records in 1940, with groups that included the guitarist Charlie Christian, the trumpeters Hot Lips Page and Henry—Red—Allen, the trombonist JC Higginbotham, and the percussionist Lionel Hampton. She continued to perform until her retirement in 1945. #idacox #blues #theblues #bluesmusic #classicblues #bluesera #blueswoman #blueswomen #bluesdiva #blueslady #bluesladies #womeninblues #bluessinger #bluessingers #bluesvocals #crazyblues #bluesmama #biglegmama #bigmama #bigmamas #bigmammas #sugarmama #blackhistory #blueshistory #blackamerica #blackamerican #blackmusic #racemusic #bluenote #blackhistory

Big Mama Thornton (1926 – 1984) was Blues vocalist and songwriter. She was the first to record Leiber and Stoller's ‘Hound Dog’ in 1952. However, her success was overshadowed three years later, when Elvis Presley recorded his more popular rendition of "Hound Dog" Her ‘Ball 'n' Chain’ written in 1961 (released in 1968) had a larger impact when performed and recorded by Janis Joplin in 1967.
Her performances were characterised by her deep, powerful voice and strong delivery. She was given her nickname ‘Big Mama’ by Frank Schiffman, the manager of the Apollo Theater in Harlem because of her strong voice, presence, and personality. She said “I’m louder than any microphone and don’t want no microphone to ever be as loud as I am. My singing comes from my experience. I never had no one teach me nothing. I never went to school for music. I taught myself to sing and blow harp and even to play drums by watching other people. I can't read music - but I know what I'm singing. I don't sing like nobody else. when I was coming up, listening to Bessie Smith and all, they sung from their heart and expressed themselves. That's why when I do a song by Jimmy Reed or somebody, I have my own way of singing it. Because I don't want to be Jimmy Reed, I want to be me. I like to put myself into whatever I'm doin' so I can feel it".
Elvis Presley and Janis Joplin admired her style of singing and incorporated it in their own work. Her vocal sound and style of delivery are key parts of her style and are recognisable in Elvis Presley's and Janice Joplin's work. #bigmama #bigmamas #bigmamathornton #mamathornton #thornton #bluesdiva #bluesmama #blueswoman #blueslady #women #blackwomen #blackamerica #blackamerican #blackblues #blueshistory #blackhistory #musichistory #bluessinger #bluesvocals

Nite music THE JOHNNY WINTER STORY / TRUE TO THE BLUES #johnnywinter #bluesgutarist #bluesvocals #cdboxsetcollector #boxset #cdboxset

GRANÁ LOUISE: Painted for Graná Louise by Doc Togden.
Graná Louise, born in 1953 in Cincinnati, Ohio. From an early age she loved music, playing the records of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. In her teenage years she remembers she tested her parents patience with the Blues and Rock music, played as loud as possible.
From 1971 to 1973, she trained in classic opera, attending the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music with a scholarship she won with a condensed rendition of West Side Story in which she played every part. 
In 1988 she sought out a jazz club where she asked Eddie Floyd and his band whether she could sit in and they agreed.
She then became influenced by Bessie Smith, Dinah Washington, Helen Hunnes, and Ida Cox.
Her blues career shifted to Chicago in 1998 when she was recruited by David Murford who saw her perform in St. Paul. He brought her to Doc Pelligrino’s club, Kingston Mines, where she played with JW & the Chi-Town Hustlers. When she finally moved to Chicago, she lived off West Diversy and had her apartment broken into three times before she could even unpack her boxes. She performed all over the city regularly, traveled the states, and eventually overseas. 
Today she cites Etta James, Denise LaSalle, and Koko Taylor as major influences. This is apparent when seeing Grana Louise perform live. When she took the stage for her farewell performance in 2015 at Buddy Guy’s Legend in Chicago, she climbed the stairs using her cane - but cast it off when she reached the mic. She then rocked the house, as she had done many other times before with her characteristic throaty howls. #granalouise #bluesmama #blueswoman #blueslady #bluesdiva #bluessinger #bluesvocals #chicagobluesfestival #chicagobluesfest #blueslegend #blueslegends #bessiesmith #etajames #bluesmusic #chicagoblues

JUST FOR FUN: an hour long rendition of ‘Spoonful’. Students joined me in a ragged and rowdy—yet righteously robust—Blues jam. Pumpkin soup and crumpets for our repast and snow falling outside. ‘It might be a spoonful of drizzle - it might be a spoonful of snow; Just one spoon of that pumpkin soup - and we’re all fired up to go.’ #bluesjam #bluesmusic #spoonfull #wheelsoflife #savagecabbage #chicagobluesfest #chicagoblues #bluesharp #bluesharmonica #bluesvocals #bluessinger #singer #singers #vocalist #vocalists #femalevocals #femalevocalist #threeguitars #twobasses #tophat #stovepipehat #bandolier #gimmedatharpboy #crossharp #friends #musicalfriends #comradesinarts #comradesinarms #williedixon #washboardresonators

JO ANN KELLY - Painting by Doc Togden. Ann Kelly (1944 –1990) was an English guitarist and vocalist. I played warmup her her on two occasions. Once in Reading Hampshire and once in Farnham Surrey. She was most kind and encouraging to me as a lone Delta Blues nonentity.
To many Black American Blues performers, Jo Ann Kelly was one of the very few British Blues performer to earn their respect. She was born in Streatham, South London. She and her brother, Dave Kelly were both Blues musicians. She appeared on two albums with Tony McPhee: 'Me and the Devil' (1968) and 'I Asked for Water, She Gave Me Gasoline' (1969). Johnny Winter tried to recruit her - but she preferred to stay in Britain. She played the European circuit, where she worked with guitarist Pete Emery and other bands. She died tragically young in 1990, at the age of 46. She was one of a kind. I used to ask my American friends "What would you say is the ethnic group, nationality, and gender of this singer?" They always replied "Black, American male." to which I say - with a broad grin: "Blond haired, blue-eyed, British, Anglo Saxon girl." #joannkelly #joannkellyandtonymcphee #englishblues #britishblues #britishbluesboom #thamesdelta #countryblues #deltablues #ragtime #boogie #12string #blueswoman #blueslady #womeninblues #bluessinger #bluessingers #bluesvocals #bluesguitar #bluesguitarist #deltablues #memphisblues #britishinvasion #bluesmaster #bluesheroes #blueslegend #bluesqueen

MUDDY WATERS — painting by Doc Togden - from the 'Blues Masters' series. Muddy Waters (1913 – 1983) was a Blues guitarist, vocalist, and one of major progenitors of Chicago Blues He grew up on Stovall Plantation, Clarksdale, Mississippi, and by 17 years of age he was playing guitar and harp in emulation of local Bluesmen: Son House and Robert Johnson. He was recorded in Mississippi by Alan Lomax for the Library of Congress in 1941. In 1943, he moved to Chicago and became a professional musician. In 1946, he recorded his first records for Columbia Records and then for Aristocrat Records, a label run by Leonard and Phil Chess.In the early 1950s, Muddy Waters and his band (Little Walter on harp, Jimmy Rogers on guitar, Elgin Evans on percussion, and Otis Spann on keyboards) recorded several Blues classics, some with the bassist and songwriter Willie Dixon. These songs included Hoochie Coochie Man; Mannish Boy; and, I Just Want to Make Love to You. In 1958, he traveled to Britain, where he helped in laying the foundations of interest in the Blues. His performance at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1960 was recorded and released as his first live album, At Newport 1960.
Muddy Waters' influence was enormous, in Blues, Jazz, Rock, and Folk Music. His use of amplification was the segue between Delta Blues and modern electric Blues. JImi Hendrix said "... the first guitar player I was aware of was Muddy Waters. I first heard him as a little boy and it scared me to death." Cream covered 'Rollin' and Tumblin' on Fresh Cream. #muddywaters #muddy #electricblues #chicagoblues #bluesmusic #guitarist #guitarists #electricguitarist #bluesguitar #bluesguitarist #bluessinger #bluesvocals #bluesmaster #bluesheroes #fendertelecaster #painting #portraits #oilpainting #blueshistory #blackhistory
