STEFAN GROSSMAN INSTRUCTIONAL

Country Blues Guitar Festival:

“Besides being one of the most talented blues guitarists living today Stefan Grossman is also lucky. His luck is combined with a self-determined will to understand, master, and then teach and describe to others, the music that he has learnt first hand from such legendary bluesmen as Skip James, Son House, Fred McDowell, Mississippi John Hurt, Bukka White, Mance Lipscomb and Rev. Gary Davis. His luck helped him to be in the right place at the right time.

But Stefan is unique in another way. Most authors of guitar instruction books can write but are rarely excellent musicians and performers in their own right. Stefan is beyond doubt one of the finest acoustic guitar players performing and recording today. His tours take him throughout Europe, Australia, Japan, South America and the United States. His concerts span a wide spectrum of music. His career has developed in two distinct directions at the same time. Sometimes these roads cross but always they seem to complement each other. What he discovers as a musician he is open to demonstrate and explain as a teacher.

The tunes on this CD were recorded in 1977 in London, England and first appeared on two Kicking Mule albums. This is the music that Stefan loves the most: the Country Blues. It was his first love and is still the music that he is most enthused about. Stefan concentrates on the guitar playing along with his close comrade in arms, Sam Mitchell. The singing is left to several friends: Jo Ann Kelly and Mike Cooper.

I think the combination of all these elements has produced an album of country blues unsurpassed. I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I have. Plus Stefan has prepared a tab/music booklet that appears on this enhanced CD as PDF files.”

Enjoy,

ED Denson

How To Play Ragtime Guitar:

This album was original recorded and released in 1973. This is the first time it is available in CD format. The eighteen selections played by myself and Ton Van Bergeyk show a wide cross-section of ragtime possibilities. These range from classic rags to ragtime songs to ragtime dances to the ragtime guitar styles of Blind Blake and Rev. Davis. The concept of this project hopefully combines an enjoyable listening experience with instructional information for guitarists. Detailed notes on each tune is presented in the 8 page insert booklet. A 48 page tab/music book with transcriptions for all the tunes is on this enhanced CD as a PDF file.

My Creole Belle:

This solo guitar album by Stefan Grossman was first released in 1976. This is the first time it is available on an enhanced CD. The songs recorded have either been composed or greatly influenced by Black musicians from the early 1900s. Stefan has always been amazed about this period of music and how relevant it still is. You cannot escape its influence on today’s rock and pop music. One is always confronted by these Black echoes and roots. Likewise the guitar techniques that 20th century Black musicians used are inescapable in today’s recorded and performed music.
