Ma Rainey


Tags de todos los usuarios

Más tags


Gertrude Ma Rainey (Columbus, Georgia, 1886 - fue una cantante negra de blues clásico, una de las primeras en hacerlo con acompañamiento de piano o de orquesta de jazz. Conocida como la «madre del blues» (en parte por su labor de mentora de Bessie Smith), sus grabaciones, un centenar, realizadas cuando tenía cuarenta años, corresponden a los años entre 1923 y 1929, y ejemplifican un tipo de blues urbano ya estandarizado.

Casada a los 14 años con Will Rainey, realizó de joven varias giras con los Rabbit Foot Minstrels.

    My son often thinks that Ma Rainey is 'ghost music.' I think that he is right.

    vv There's a box-set called "Mother Of The Blues" that JSP Released in 2007. It features all of her recordings (including rare alternate takes). The box-set is generally less than $25 and is also available to download individually on iTunes or Amazon Mp3 (each disc cost about $10).

    Con-John, you could try a more recent compilation, maybe it has better mastering. I myself don't really care about hiss and crackle, it's more than 80 year old music and you can hear that.

    I downloaded a compilation of Ma Rainey's Blues, but all the recordings sound a bit weird. Well OK, I know that they were recorded back at 1924 - 1928 but does anyone know if there is a possibility of finding better recordings?

    great blues. you might want to check out B.C. Williamson, who is a fictional blues artist with an endlessly complicated backstory, spanning over 60 years. and now he has a 22-track compilation album coming out. "The Greatest Blues Singer Who Never Lived."

    Are there any Ma Rainey compilations that don't sound like absolute crap? This reissue trend of "removing all crackles" at the expense of dynamics really drives me mad.

    I just found out about Ma Rainey from an Augus Wilson play, enchanting and stirs me.
