Artist: Otis Taylor
Song: Little Willie
Genre: Blues (1/7)
The “Genre Themed Week” is back by popular request. We kick started and tested the idea with the genre of Chill-Wave last month. The articles received an overwhelming response and after your input we decided to add a new feature to the site. We are working on developing a way for our readers to browse the site by genre. Please bear with us as we make the changes over the next few weeks.
This week we will focus on Blues, the back bone of what helped mold and influence so much music today. Today’s song comes from Otis Taylor. Taylor has an interesting approach to his music and most of the musician’s songs revolve around a somewhat repetitive rhythm. The artist keeps his music interesting by staying away from chords, picking individual notes and adding a variety of dynamics.
