Johnny Nicholas: Mistaken Identity (LP)

(Valcour) 10 tracks
Die musikalische Karriere des ehemaligen Asleep At The Wheel Frontmann Johnny Nicholas ist gut dokumentiert. Seine musikalischen Wurzeln liegen aber im Blues.

'Es begann alles mit dem Blues und alles ist eine musikalische Manifestationen. ... In den siebziger Jahren bin ich musikalisch in der Zeit aufgewachsen mit Link Davis Jr, Nathan Abshire und Dewey Balfa , der immer mit der Geige in der Hand auftauchte und sagte "Hey Johnny, lass uns schmutzig werden! Das ist genau das, was wir getan haben. ob es sich um Blues, Cajun, R&B oder Honky Tonk-Musik handelte und alles machte in dieser Umgebung vollkommen Sinn.

Dieses Album stellt eine Heimkehr dar, oder sich der Kreis schließt. um damit an den Ort zurückzukehren, an dem alles begann. Joel Savoy passte ganz natürlich und perfekt zu dem, was ich wollte diese neuen Lieder live in seinem wunderbaren kleinen Studio aufzunehmen außerhalb von Eunice und in der Nähe von Basile. I war erfreut, als er und Phillip LaFargue mich baten auf ihrem Label Valcour Records zu sein. Genießen Sie das musikalische Reise, genau wie wir sie genossen haben'

Johnny Nicholas

“Johnny Nicholas is one of the best bluesmen ever, black or white.”
~ STEPHEN BRUTON
Make no mistake: Johnny Nicholas knows from the blues. His credentials? Impeccable. Conviction? Immeasurable. And chops? If an instrument’s got strings, keys, or reeds, rest assured he can play the hell out of it. He’s also a consummate songwriter and no slouch of a singer, either, blessed with a warm, toasty growl of a voice that can roll from rumble to croon and back again with seductive ease. In the words of kindred musical spirit Marcia Ball, he “writes instant classics and sings them to break your heart and rock your soul,” while no less of an authority than the late, great B.B. King once observed, “[Johnny] learned from some of the same guys I did and he sings and plays the real down-home blues.”

A lot of those “same guys,” in fact, welcomed a young Johnny Nicholas into their homes, treating him not just as a wide-eyed acolyte of the blues, but as one of their own: “They took me in because they thought a lot more of me than I thought they did, obviously,” he marvels today, “but then later on I realized that I just have this gift, you know? I can reach deep down in those blues and get way down to the bottom like those guys. And they treated me like family.”

But still, there’s something about the term “bluesman” that just doesn’t quite fit Nicholas. To quote the aforementioned Marcia Ball again, he’s far more of an “innovative traditionalist.” Some might call that an oxymoron, but for Nicholas, it’s a point of direction that’s given him a sense of purpose ever since his mentor Robert Lockwood Jr. — the stepson of Robert Johnson — set him straight way back in his salad days. “I got to spend a lot of time with him when I was really young, and, he admonished me early on, saying, ‘Hey, why you wanna be playing Little Walter and Muddy Waters songs? You don’t need to be copying other people’s songs. You’re Johnny Nicholas — play your own stuff, write your own stuff,’” Nicholas recalls with a smile. “And that really stuck with me.”
