Info zu Migration Blues

„Migration Blues“ – das neue Album von Eric Bibb – ist wahrscheinlich eines seiner bedeutendsten Alben überhaupt. Zusammen mit den herausragenden Musikern JJ Milteau (Harmonika) und Michael Jerome Browne (Gitarre, Fidel, Banjo etc.) sowie ein paar weiteren erstklassigen Künstlern, besticht das neue Werk durch hochwertiges Songwriting, rauhe Emotionen, die durch Erics Stimme transportiert werden, trotz der Schlichtheit durch eine vielfältige Instrumentierung sowie durch die Ernsthaftigkeit und Brisanz der Thematik.

„Die Freude Musik zu machen und diese mit Euch zu teilen ist ein großer Teil meines Lebens. Ein weiterer großer Teil ist Reisen und Menschen von vielen verschiedenen Orten kennen zu lernen. Diese Entdeckung der verschiedenen Kulturen hat mich dazu verleitet über mich selbst als Bürger der Welt nachzudenken, gesegnet mit unzähligen Möglichkeiten meine Verbindung zu Menschen überall zu verstehen. Diese Verbindung zu fühlen macht es einfacher, meine vorgefassten Ansichten und Vorurteile gegenüber Leuten und Kulturen fallen zu lassen.

So wie ich das sehe, sind die Vorurteile gegenüber unseren Brüdern und Schwestern, die derzeitig als Flüchtlinge bezeichnet werden, das Problem. Angst und Ignoranz sind das Problem. Flüchtlinge dagegen sind kein Problem – sie sind mutige Mitmenschen, die aus schrecklichen Lebensverhältnissen flüchten. Vor Krieg und unerträglicher Not zu flüchten haben Menschen weltweit seit Jahrtausenden gemacht. Das ist nichts Neues. Jede Kultur hat ihre eigenen Migrations- Geschichten und Songs.

Nachdenkend über die aktuelle Flüchtlingskrise, fielen meine Gedanken auf die ›Große Migration‹, als Millionen von Afroamerikanern aus den ländlichen Gebieten der Südstaaten der USA in die Industriestädte des Nordens, Nordostens und Westens zogen. Diese Gedanken inspirierten die neuen Songs des Albums.

Mit diesem Album möchte ich uns alle dazu ermutigen unsere Köpfe und Herzen weit zu öffnen gegenüber der fortwährenden Notlage der Flüchtlinge überall. Wie die Geschichte zeigt, stammen wir alle von Menschen, die irgendwann einmal woanders hinziehen mussten.“ – Eric Bibb

„… so ist es auch einmal mehr seine unaufgeregte gesangliche wie instrumentale Performance, die kongenial unterstützt von seinen beiden Mitstreitern Migration Blues zu einem großartigen Album macht.“ (Good Times)

Eric Bibb
Like Josh White, Jr. — son of folk singer Josh White — singer, songwriter, and guitarist Eric Bibb was raised in the folk tradition, the son of folk singer Leon Bibb. Bibb's uncle was the world-famous jazz pianist and composer John Lewis, part of the Modern Jazz Quartet. Bibb was raised in a music-filled household, and family friends in the '50s and '60s included Pete Seeger, Odetta, Bob Dylan, and the late Paul Robeson, who was named Eric's godfather. Bibb got his first steel guitar at age seven, and some advice from Dylan that he never forgot: "keep it simple, forget all that fancy stuff." When he was 13, Bibb entered New York City's High School of Music and Art, where he studied double bass, vocals, classical guitar, and piano. When he was 16, his father asked him to play guitar in the house band for his TV talent show, Someone New.

In 1970, Bibb left New York City for Paris, where he met with guitarist Mickey Baker. There, he began to focus in on blues guitar, and, after moving to Stockholm, he became enamored with pre-war blues. He continued to write his own songs and perform during this time, and returned to New York in 1980 to pursue a career as a folk and blues singer. He moved back to Sweden five years later and continued performing, but also taught music in school. His debut, Spirit and the Blues, showcased the sounds of bouzouki, mandolin, accordion, and a gospel group, inspired by other recordings that married bluesmen like Leadbelly with gospel groups like the Golden Gate Quartet. He performed at the London Blues Festival in 1996, where he shared a set with Corey Harris and Keb' Mo', and he quickly followed up with 1997's Good Stuff. His third album, Me to You, featured performances and collaborations with some of his musical heroes, including Pops & Mavis Staples and Taj Mahal. He followed up the success of the album with tours of the U.K., U.S., Canada, France, Germany, and Sweden. He recorded and released Home to Me in 1999, Roadworks in 2000, Painting Signs and Just Like Love in 2001, and A Family Affair in 2001, which featured duets and solo tunes by Bibb and his father. Bibb joined Robert Cray on two U.S. tours in 2001 and 2002, and opened for Ray Charles in the summer of 2002. Bibb was nominated for a Grammy for "Shakin' a Tailfeather," and he has been nominated for many W.C. Handy Awards in a variety of categories.

Ever the prolific songwriter, forever brimming with new musical ideas and a freshness of appreciation with no dimming in his enthusiasm for performing, Bibb has kept up a hectic schedule of performing and recording since Home to Me and A Family Affair were released in 2001. He recorded Natural Light for Earthbeat in 2003, Roadworks and Sisters and Brothers in 2004, and Friends in 2004. His late-2000s recordings include A Ship Called Love, Diamond Days, and Twelve Gates to the City in 2006, and a collaboration with his father, Praising Peace: A Tribute to Paul Robeson. Not all of Bibb's releases are available in the U.S., but most can be found via the Internet. He released a live album in 2007, An Evening with Eric Bibb, for the Telarc Blues label. 2008's Get on Board on Telarc Blues features performances by Bonnie Raitt and Ruthie Foster. Bibb describes the sounds and songs on the album best when he says, it's "a further exploration into the place where blues meets gospel and soul." Troubadour Live, recorded at a December 9, 2010 concert in Stockholm, Sweden and featuring guest guitarist Staffan Astner, was released in 2011. Jericho Road, which found Bibb working once again with long-time collaborator, producer, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist Glen Scott, appeared in 2013.
