Your Rendezvous with the Blues playlist for October 5, 2017

I missed you over the past few weeks!  It was good to be in the studio, but hard to get off to a smooth start after being gone so long… sorry.  One of the things I did while I was away was attend the Americana Music Festival in Nashville.  My “discovery” of the festival was Don Bryant.  He’s a song writer of note from the late 60s and 70s.  He made one soul album himself, back in 1969, but then concentrated on song writing and later gospel.  In 2017 he issued the second secular album of his career, Don’t Give Up On Love, and it’s terrific.  Even better is Don’s live performance where he obviously loves being on stage in front of the audience.  If you get a chance to see him, don’t pass it up!
