    • Pinetop Perkins and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith | Joined at the Hip

      Pianist Pinetop Perkins is one of the true originals. With his 100th birthday on the not-too-distant horizon, he is one of the last blues musicians who can legitimately claim direct roots in the Delta blues of the 1930s – a period that spawned such giants as Robert Johnson, Honeyboy Edwards and other titans of the of the deep South who laid the foundation for the blues as we know them today. Born Willie Perkins in Belzoni, Mississippi, in July 1913, Pinetop has compiled a resume that spans nearly eighty years – as a guitarist and a pianist, then moving over to exclusively piano, following a knifing in 1942. One of the obvious highlights is his stint with Muddy Waters band for more than a decade. From 1969 through the early ‘80s, Perkins was an integral part of Muddy’s powerhouse combo that dominated the urbanized, electrified post-World War II blues scene. It was during these years that he forged an enduring friendship and prolific creative bond with Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, then the drummer in Muddy’s band. The most recent chapter in this longstanding alliance is Joined at the Hip, a collaborative project shared by Pinetop and Smith that’s set for release on June 8, 2010, on Telarc International, a division of Concord Music Group. It was at the suggestion of manager Patricia Morgan that the two collaborate, with producer Michael Freeman offering the inspired title. The album is a mix of material written by Smith, along with a few chestnuts from the annals of Delta and Chicago blues.

              HORIZONTE - Expertengespräche des Stifterverbandes: Interview mit Robert Johnson, Direktor des Institute for New Economic Thinking, New York. Robert Johnson sagt: "I think the economics profession was making tremendous money in consulting for the financial sector. Many of the theories were not investigational illumination how financial markets worked. They were portraits painted like a marketing document. They did a great disservice to mankind and we're cleaning up after that right now." "When the people become anxious they want the expert to tell them what's going to happen. And they feel good when their anxiety is relieved because they think they understand the future. But if the expert instead of telling the truth is telling snake oil, a false story, when that is unmasked the expert becomes the scapegoat." "Economists are very much accused of "only seeing the economy through the eyes of the model" as opposed to seeing the economy and building a model as a map of what reality is. Formalism is very different to science." "At the core economics is about politics and about power. And the question for the economists is: Whose power are you going to serve as an expert? Are you going to serve the public good of society or are you going to serve private consulting pay trends?" "There are several modifications to economics teaching that need to take place. The first is rather than teaching introductory economics as an indoctrination in method they should teach it as a course in the philosophy of science where the subject is economics and its assumptions and the trade-offs and the flaws as well as the strings are explored sceptically on behalf of the student."

              • MY BROTHER'S KEEPER - Jefferson Fox - Official Video - Directed by Tim Gill, Produced by Jody Schiesser

                MY BROTHER'S KEEPER began as a song by Jefferson Fox (www.jeffersonfox.com). When Director/Cinematographer Tim Gill (www.timgill.net) heard the final mix of the song, he saw the images of a film playing out in slow motion. Together with Jefferson and the help of Producer Jody Schiesser, a story was written, set in the 1930s that touches upon the shadowy legend and some truth regarding the blues musician Robert Johnson, who at the young age of 27 met a Faustian death. A mostly African-American cast drawn from the Savannah area, and a local production crew formed a team with strong support from the cities of Savannah and Thunderbolt to create this music video. When the credits roll, keep watching, as everyone's name is listed in the credits. The technique of the film was enabled through the use of the Phantom v641 camera shooting in high speed. David Wright was the Phantom technician and co-operated the camera with Tim. This is a film about the struggle between desire and morality. Starring David Girard, Rahman Johnson, Christina May, Roger Moss, Jefferson Fox, and Emerald Dove. The project was filmed in Savannah, Georgia, on February 18 through February 20, 2011. Our lives all changed. We hope you enjoy the final product as much as we've enjoyed making it. "My Brother's Keeper" the song is on Jefferson Fox's album "Chronicles of Harvey".

                    This is the 2nd video i have filmed with the very lovely and talented Amanda Zelina. This time, we went the acoustic route, and filmed her doing a cover of Robert Johnson's "Ramblin'". A few years back before i knew Amanda, i saw a youtube video of her doing this cover, and i knew that i had to talk her into doing it again for the Wood & Wires Video Series. And here it is. I love this cover, and hope you do as well! www.woodandwiresproductions.com myspace.com/thecoppertone Filmed on Canon 7D with Sigma 18-50 2.8 Edited in Final Cut Pro and coloured with Magic Bullet.

                      “Stop Breakin’ Down” Robert Johnson brought a guitar-case full of troubles with him on the night of his mysterious murder which is linked to flashbacks of his relationships and two possible reasons for the sudden acquisition of his talent: the crossroads and influences of other musicians. Who was Robert Johnson? The world knows him today as one of the fathers of the Delta Blues. But who was he, really? Everyone who knew him had a different opinion. To his field-hand stepfather, Robert Johnson was a dreamy kid who refused to work in the cotton fields and longed to play the guitar. To Blues great Son House, Johnson was a pesky teenager trying to wish himself into being a great guitar player, a dime-a-dozen kid without talent but desperate to succeed, who hung around juke joints bothering musicians to "sit in" on a set. To itinerant blues guitarist Ike Zinneman, Johnson was an ambitious young man who absorbed the guitar technique of other musicians like a sponge, a kid with a phenomenal ear for music who became great faster than anybody could have imagined. To the audiences who heard him play all over the South and up into Chicago and New York, he was the arrogant, handsome black man who played better than anybody had ever played, who wanted greatness so much that he went down to a Mississippi crossroads one midnight and sold his soul to the Devil in return for a short life and a talent that would live forever. "Stop Breakin' Down," looks at these different interpretations of Johnson's life. The script is structured around the night of his murder, linked to flashbacks to his youth, his relationship with Son House, and two possible reasons for his sudden acquisition of the blazing guitar technique: the crossroads legend, and the influence of Ike Zinneman. STOP BREAKIN' DOWN was my thesis project while I was a student at Loyola Marymount University. It received a Student Emmy, screened at The Telluride, Atlanta, Sienna Italy, Berlin, Worldfest and two dozen other film festivals.
