Making a Scene Presents an Interview with John Primer

John Primer has undisputedly helped build the sound and style of Chicago blues as we know it today. The echos of tradition bellowing from the birthplaces he played such as: Maxwell Street, Theresa's, Checkerboard and Rosa's Lounges, pulse from every chord in his fingers today. John Primer is a Chicago Blues Living Legend.

John's father died tragically in Mississippi when he was young. When his mother found work in Chicago, John soon followed, bringing the sounds and spirit of Mississippi with him in 1963. He then fell for the music of both the city's west and south sides. Fronting his first band, The Maintainers, he was asked to join and eventually lead the house band at the world famous Theresa’s Lounge in 1974. Over the next seven years, John would play with such blues originators as: Sammy Lawhorn, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Smokey Smothers, Lonnie Brooks and many others shaping the foundations of the Chicago blues to come.

Woodsongs 837: Celebration of Muddy Waters with John Primer, Bob Margolin and Paul Oscher

Read more
MUDDY WATERS is an American Icon. The whole story of the blues can be heard, felt, and learned in his life. Country blues were Muddy�s roots and remained at his core, but through the force of his artistry he transformed them. With electricity, volume, the weaving of bass and guitar lines with piano, harmonica and drums, he created the ensemble sound and subsequently the template for future Rock and Pop groups including the Beatles and The Rolling Stones. His music�s raw power and energy, plus his attitude and magnetism�Muddy was the prototype for the iconic Rock�n Roll star�are still the major ingredients that inspire the popular music we listen to today.

MUDDY WATERS?100 is a tribute album to Muddy�s music and legacy on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer Larry Skoller, the album includes 15 newly recorded tracks featuring Muddy Waters Band alumni and many of today�s most preeminent American blues and roots artists This WoodSongs Special Event Broadcast will be celebrating the music and legacy of Muddy Waters and feature two of the artists on this historic Grammy nominated release plus another legendary blues musician.

Performing on this broadcast:
JOHN PRIMER is recognized as one of today�s most crucial keepers of the Chicago blues flame. He broke through playing with the great Willie Dixon, spent more than a decade alongside Magic Slim, and has released 15 albums of his own. In between Willie Dixon and Magic Slim, though, was the event that changed his life. Muddy Waters asked John to join his band, a gig which John faithfully remained with until Muddy�s death in 1983. John has since then felt a genuine responsibility to carry on Muddy�s legacy�Muddy�s sound, his songs and his spirit�a responsibility that John takes very seriously. In fact, John handles most of the lead vocals and guitar playing on Muddy Waters 100.

BOB MARGOLIN is a multi-award winning guitar player/songwriter/singer/producer. Inspired by Chuck Berry, he started playing guitar at age 15 and immediately started performing in local rock and blues bands. Margolin was hired by Muddy Waters in 1973 and toured the world and jammed with many great blues and rock musicians, “but the biggest thrill was playing Muddy�s Blues with him.� Muddy brought Margolin with him to special shows and recordings including the Grammy Award-winning �Muddy Waters Woodstock Album� and The Band�s �Last Waltz� concert. Since leaving Muddy�s band in 1980, Margolin started his own band, won several BMA�s, produced albums for numerous artists including Muddy�s son Big Bill Morganfield, played on several Grammy-winning records, began a second career as a music writer, and produced and consulted on reissues of Muddy Waters� recordings for the Blue Sky Label for Sony/Legacy. His latest solo release is �My Road� and appears as a special guest on Muddy Waters 100.

PAUL OSCHER is an award-winning blues singer, songwriter, recording artist, and multi-instrumentalist, (harmonica, guitar, piano, melodica, and bass harp). He first came to national attention as Muddy Waters� harmonica player from 1967-1972 following in the footsteps of Little Walter, Junior Wells,James Cotton, andBig Walter Horton. Paul was was the first white musician in the world to become a full-time member of a black blues band of this stature. Paul is currently in the process of writing a book about his life�s experience in the blues and has won multiple BMA�s as a solo artists.
