“Everything comes out in blues music: joy, pain, struggle. Blues is affirmation with absolute elegance. It’s about a man and a woman. So the pain and the struggle in the blues is that universal pain that comes from having your heart broken. Most blues songs are not about social statements.” ~ Wynton Marsalis

Wynton Marsalis – “Happy Feet Blues”

(stick with it through the first three minutes of the splendid drum solo…your feet (and soul) will be happy you did!)
