    Le banjo est arrivé d'Afrique en navires négriers [aux États-Unis]. Les esclaves ont joué pour Thomas Jefferson et faisaient des minstrel shows. Ils jouaient du Blues.

    Le charismatique chanteur et guitariste de Blues, Otis Taylor, cultive sa différence. Le son est obsédant, inclassable et intemporel, tout en rythmiques hypnotiques, le chantre du Transe blues évoque le passé mais son propos est bien actuel.

  • Otis Taylor Trance Blues | Acoustic Guitar Sessions

    6:31

    He calls it trance blues. And Chicago-born bluesman Otis Taylor has honed his art into a razor-sharp, steely mojo machine, garnering critical acclaim for such albums as 1979’s When Negroes Walked the Earth, 2008’s haunting Recapturing the Banjo, and the recent Hey Joe Opus Red Meat.

    Acoustic Guitar caught up with Taylor, along with fiddler Anne Harris, before a show at Biscuits & Blues in San Francisco’s rough-and-tumble Tenderloin District.

    He was playing a Santa Cruz Guitar Co. Otis Taylor signature model (an H model) with flatwound strings.

    Taylor and Harris performed “Rain So Hard” and “My Soul’s in Louisiana.”

    For more, check out the Otis Taylor Trance Blues Festival, with workshops and concerts, to be held on Nov. 5, 2016, in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado.

    VISIONARY SONGWRITER OTIS TAYLOR RETURNS WITH HIS POWERFUL AND UNIQUE BLEND OF ROOTS MUSIC AND NARRATIVE POETRY

    My World Is Gone explores the struggles of Native Americans with contributions from Indigenous frontman/guitar virtuoso Mato Nanji



    Roots music visionary Otis Taylor's 13th album, My World Is Gone, set for release February 12, 2013 on Telarc, a division of Concord Music Group, is a lightning bolt of musical creativity and social commentary. Its songs crackle with poetic intelligence and a unique, adventurous sound that balances the modern world with echoes of ancient Africa, Appalachia and more (international release dates may vary).



    To call Taylor a cutting edge artist is an understatement. Although his music is based in the blues and folk realm, his meticulously crafted recordings crash the barriers of jazz, rock, funk, Americana and myriad other genres to create a hybrid that Taylor labels trance blues. And that signature style serves as a backbone for his frank tales of struggle, freedom, desire, conflict and, of course, love.



    The central theme of My World Is Gone was fueled by Taylor's friend Mato Nanji, the singer-guitarist and cornerstone of the band Indigenous. Mato inspired the entire direction of this album, Taylor relates. We were talking about history backstage at a Jimi Hendrix tribute concert that Mato had just played, and, in reference to his people, the Native American Nakota Nation, he said 'My world is gone.' The simplicity and honesty of those four words was so heavy, I knew what I had to write about.

  • Otis Taylor - Ran So Hard The Sun Went Down Live At Telluride Blues & Brews Festival

    5:15

    Guitar Player magazine writes, “Otis Taylor is arguably the most relevant blues artist of our time.” We agree. The Denver-based master of trance blues has returned to Telluride, this time with an outfit he calls the Psychedelic Banjo Posse. This will be incredible. His recorded output sees him taking an unflinching view of the African-American experience in the US, making him as much a historian as a musician. The banjo — imported to these shores from Africa during the slave trade — has always been celebrated in his music. This iteration of his musical vision will be an illuminating trip into history and Otis’ unique take on the blues.

    Watch his entrancing performance of “Ran So Hard The Sun Went Down” live from the 2019 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival Main Stage.
