Dennis Binder – Hole In That Jug
Zowel in het lente nummer van het Nederlandse 'Block' als in het laatste nummer van Franse 'Soulbag' magazine kreeg Dennis Binder heel wat aandacht en werd deze cd ook heel lovend onthaald. Deze nu 79 jarige bluesman is, na enkele jaren verblijf in de vergetelheid van het collectieve korte bluesgeheugen, terug ... en hoe.
Dennis Binder, pianist, vocalist and composer originally from Rosedale, Mississippi, has been an active member of the blues community for over 50 years. As a young man, Dennis refined his technique and music knowledge in Chicago. Determined to become a professional musician, he hung around the Chess Records studio, and eventually cut four songs for the label. In the 1950s he recorded for Sam Phillips at Sun Records, and in Clarksdale, as a featured vocalist/arranger on recordings that Ike Turner set up for Modern Records. Dennis has remained musically active in Lawton, Oklahoma, performing in local clubs and releasing several self-produced cds of blues, country, and inspirational music. After a fifty-year hiatus from the national scene, he has resumed touring throughout the United States and internationally with recent performances at major festivals around the world.
