Music makes my world go ’round, Especially when it comes to my all-time favorite, Billie Holiday, and my friends.

Did your baby leave you? Is your friend mistreat you or betray you? Then you’re learning the blues.
But one thing about the blues, it’s going to be emotional.
My favorite stories about the blues involve the Creole blacks, living in New Orleans, refined and intelligent, who abruptly were thrown in with their less fortunate brothers. The out on the street kind blues was mixed with the complicated intellectual blues of the Creoles. The story is that, in the Mississippi Delta, upriver from New Orleans, the blues were created.
The’re intertwined you know, blues and jazz. The just spread from the south to the Midwest, during the 30s and 40s. Blues from the Mississippi region morphed into the Chicago blues. Rhythm and blues and rock ‘n roll both came out of the blues.
