-- Richy Kicklighter's Living Room Jams is volume one in a series of live recordings meant to capture the art and magic of live playing. When the musical picture is getting painted and improvisation is moment to moment , there is a purity. Sometimes I use to hear
" really like your record but did you save the demo". I even felt that way, like something was missing or lost in the recoding process. So here we are live blues with a mix of delta and chicago styles thats as honest and real as it gets. This is the Richy Kicklighter Trio jamming in the living room, blues , americana and a touch of jazz.
Richy has always been a blues player, playing with the Delrays and backing Rufus Thomas , Eddie Floyd, Little Johnny Taylor and many more. Starting out on acoustic playing Sonny Terry and Brownie Mcghee and mixing it with Albert King and T-Bone Walker he eventually graduated to electric with a little help from the 60's. Today he is a true pay your due's to play the blues veteran and is considered to be one of the finest creative and artistic blues player around.
