Description

The concept of Southern Bred Tennessee and Arkansas allows the sourcing of a variety of wide-ranging black music chosen by the theme of birth to be collected onto the albums. The series like its predecessors are made by people who are active on the music scene, for people who enjoy the excellence of sound and quality of music. The series concept is to research an artist's birth state and compile albums around their Southern Bred heritage. By doing so the musical concept radically differs from that of a regional or label-based compilation and therefore opens the variety of sound within the album. On The Floor, Southern Bred Tennessee and Arkansas Koko Mojo (KM-CD - 87) is the introductory album, looking at the birth heritage Tennessee and Arkansas which is consolidated into the anthology due to it being referred to as West Memphis. The album introduces traditional Blues and R&B performers: Stick McGhee and His Buddies, Robert Lockwood Jr., Washboard Sam, and Big Willie, and several more rockin' roots musicians. The formative jump music style emanates from The King of the Jukebox who always had a gleam in his eyes Louis Jordan with His Tympany Five. The charismatic bandleader Lucky Millinder used several Southern-bred artists to front his Orchestra and he will reappear in the series providing instrumentation for more performers. RnB encompasses guitar rockers, saxophones, and piano boogies, and the cream of the genre includes, heavyweights Jimmy Witherspoon and Big John Greer. The jelly rolling mamas, Big Maybelle, Christine Kittrell, and the sassy Lillian Offitt. New breed Rock 'n' Roll and Doo-Wop artists add charm to the album and included are; the volatile Little Willie John, Gene Allison, Little Charles and The Daffodils, and Dee Clark. Our Southern Bred albums have; sleeve notes written by series compiler Mark Armstrong, stunning design from design artist Michael van Merwyk, and 28 songs, remastered at Black Shack Studios by our sound expert Heiko Schultz.
