Three young and very talented Blues artists - Aynsley Lister, Ian Parker and Erja Lyytinen - hit the road together with the annual Ruf Records Blues Caravan label tour of Europe and the USA. They showcase their blues prowess as young artists, taking their lead from the legends and creating The New Generation. All successful artists in their own right, the Blues Caravan tour has seen the three come together in front of some very enthusiastic fans to play the songs they recorded during their joint pilgrimage to the heart of blues, the American Deep South.
Robin Trower is an English rock guitarist and vocalist who achieved success with Procol Harum during the 1960s, and then again as the bandleader of his own power trio. Throughout his long and winding solo career, guitarist Robin Trower has had to endure countless comparisons to Jimi Hendrix due to his uncanny ability to channel Hendrix's bluesy/psychedelic, Fender Strat-fueled playing style. Caravan to Midnight is the sixth studio album by Robin Trower. The album cover art is by Hipgnosis.
Say you start a group called the Society for New Music, commission composer-stars-in-the-making and do it for thirty years straight, you might expect your scrapbooks to be quite interesting. What you might not realize is that your efforts now constitute a major segment of the backbone of contemporary American concert music and you have premiered a boatload of chamber works by composers who have gone on to distinguished careers. Such is the case with Syracuse’s Society for New Music founded by Neva Pilgrim, who opened their treasure chest of commissioned works from 1972 – 2002 and has put them together as the 5-CD set entitled “American Masters for the 21st Century.”
