  • Johnny Dyer, Mark Mumea, Mark Bukich - Sad Sad Day

    4:38

    Recorded 10/24/04 (Vista, CA)

    Recorded 10/24/04 in Vista, CA. this is a glimpse into a rare and impromptu home recording we did in the late hours directly following a late afternoon gig. This session features Johnny Dyer - vocals, Mark Bukich – harp, Mark Mumea – guitar. This is the type of blues J.D. loved to do most, and to my knowledge is the only, or at least one of the very few sessions that captures J.D. in an “Acoustic” and stripped down arrangement. J.D. was 100% Muddy, Jimmy Rogers, Little Walter, Rice Miller etc. at heart. He often spoke about how the blues is to be “spoken”, not screamed or yelled. J.D. was never fond of the later string bending guitar styles, he referred to (as many of his generation did) “choking” the strings or “stinging guitar”. He also talked frequently about playing simple and not “cancelling yourself out” by playing too many notes and failing to leave space. When we finished this recording using a simple 4 track cassette recorder (used only 2 channels), a very cheap old plastic mic for vocals, 1 small amp shared for vocals and harp, and a small amp for guitar; we listened back to this single recording for probably 5 hrs straight. J.D. would not let me turn the machine off…”One More Time”, he would say over and over as the song came to a close. I believe it was about 4-5am before we finally shut it down and at least 100 times through the recording. J.D. kept saying this is the best recording he ever did. Probably a gross over-statement, led by some drinking and no sleep, but the fact that Johnny could relax and not have to compete with a loud and pumped up band was something I believe Johnny would like to have seen a lot more of in his career, and thus was clinging on to the moment. Many a nights after doing shows with Johnny, he and I would sit in the cab of my truck listening to guys like Muddy, Walter, Brim, Nighthawk, Sonny Boy, John Lee Williamson etc. We would sit there for hours as he would demonstrate the phrasing of all these different vocal styles and many more. He could nail them all! He would do things at such a low volume that were NEVER captured on recordings… so effortless and natural. I’d grab my guitar, still in the cab of the truck, he would go into a Jimmy Rogers tune or Muddy etc…he would blow some harp, sing and point out different things to me in each tune. These memories are invaluable to me. J.D. was incredible person, a true master of blues and always a great friend. This recording of Sad Sad Day will always be what I remember him by most. R.I.P. J.D.

    This song is from a 2003 album by Barry Levenson. Veteran blues guitarist Barry Levenson wrote all 11 selections for Hard Times Won, which co-stars Johnny Dyer on vocals and harmonica. The music ranges from lowdown Chicago blues to swinging jazz/blues with Mike Thompson's organ giving a soul-jazz feel to some of the instrumentals. Levenson's lyrics are intelligent, there is a surprising amount of variety on the songs even though they do stick to blues, and the musicianship is excellent. Levenson and Dyer in particular make for a great team, and the results are often exciting and are always quite spirited. This highly enjoyable set should appeal to both blues and jazz fans. ~ Scott Yanow

    Recorded at Pacifica Studios, Los Angeles, California.

    Personnel: Barry Levenson (guitar); Johnny Dyer (vocals, harmonica); Phil Krawzak, Jeff Big Dad Turmes (saxophone, horns); Mike Thompson (piano, organ); Dave Kida (drums); Mike Sandberg (percussion).

    Audio Mixers: Mike Sandberg; Barry Levenson.

  • Johnny Dyer With Mark Hummel - Young Fashioned Ways

    3:38

    Johnny Dyer, a blues harmonica player born in 1938 in Rolling Fork, Mississippi, died in San Dimas, California, on November 11, 2014. Mark Hummel, harmonica player, singer and songwriter born in 1955 in New Haven, CT. Mark with Johnny produced an album called Rolling Fork Revisited, which was greatly appreciated by blues music enthusiasts. The name of this album refers to the city where Muddy Waters' birthplace was the legendary blues musician and at the same time was Johnny Dyer's birthplace! A strong blues album from Chicago with full blood! Johnny Dyer, who sang everywhere, comes from Mississippi, although LA has been his home for decades. Mark Hummel, who was a tireless promoter, musician and band leader for more than 20 years, helped bring this project together. The disc is really very strong, strong, but devoid of any originality and stylistic independence. The efforts of Mark Hamm and his musicians were that the sound recorded in this work was as close as possible to the sound of Muddy Waters' works in the 1950s, and it seems that they have achieved their goal in that direction. Because the band's musical instruments also resemble Chicago Blues, and Johnny Dyer's song sounds like Muddy Waters. Check out also the incredible Steve Wolf on the electric Fender getting a bass sound from stand. If you close your eyes, you'd think of being at the Chess Records Studios in 1957. Apparently, the concept was: to become cool, like Muddy. And it happened. It is highly recommended for lovers of tradition, Harp fans.
