Eric Bibb’s new album is both a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, J. s I Have a Dream speech, and a homage to the original blues people, the Afro-American creators of a style celebrated today as part of the common heritage of mankind. Blues People is an album voluntarily bare, haunted by the spirit of the blues. Many good friends managed to join the recording sessions and brought their own contributions. That same path is the inspiration for this album called BLUES PEOPLE. This record is also a tribute to the tribe of blues troubadours that I’m grateful to be a member of – featuring the talents of several friends and heroes of mine. We, who traverse the highways and skyways of the planet playing the music we know of as blues, are a rainbow tribe.
Eric Bibb's version of the blues is hushed and elegant, as much or more about redemption as it is about despair. His best songs, often built on traditional patterns and rhythms, are wise and affirming, and they fall to the brighter and more hopeful side of the blues, a vision that makes him the spiritual descendant of Blind Willie Johnson, say, more than Robert Johnson. Bibb isn't about to go down to the crossroads and make some deal with the devil. His version of folk-blues isn't about that sort of stuff. It's calm, serious, warm, thoughtful, and wonderfully recorded (the album was produced by Glen Scott), and if it doesn't expand Bibb's musical template much, it isn't supposed to, and it ends up being one of Bibb's finest outings.
Eric Bibb – Blues People. Label: DixieFrog – DFGCD 8768. On previous albums left Eric Bibb hear that the blues is an elastic concept for him. He took with Habib Koité an album on in Africa (Brothers In Bamako) and dropped to Spirit I Am (2008) inspired by gospel music. Blues People according to Bibb is a tribute to the blues troubadours of yore. The thread on this album is the struggle that African-Americans. From slave to become a full citizen, a journey that according to Bibb has still not been completed. Like his father, the folk singer and activist Leon Bibb, put Eric therefore active in against racism
