    William Clarke on Bro Matts Bluez Shift

    8:45

    Blues harmonica legend, William Clarke (1951--1996) is Brother Matt's guest on this 1985 edition of The Bluez Shift (2of5). The William Clarke band is: Jeri Monti, drums; Willie Brinlee, bass; Joel Foy & *Steve Samuels, guitars.

    It was an honor to have Bill as my guest. I'd been going to the Starboard Attitude on the Redondo Beach Pier to see him for years ... for FREE!

    Here's a funny little history behind this episode of The Bluez Shift: The public access studio undeniably had crappy gear, mostly broken & salvaged equipment. It's amazing Dave Hammers, the Director & Jury-Rig Wizard, somehow got the stuff to work & that we produced any shows at all. Bill & I watched a few minutes of playback on a funky monitor ... & it didn't look so good. (But it was great compared to some of our others!). Bill was kinda disappointed - I was kinda embarrassed. He said, Brother Matt, you gotta promise me that nobody will ever see that. I promised. I put it away. It was stashed away and nobody ever saw except for me & Hammers for over 20 years! Over that time span,
    William Clarke, who had started his career in the South Bay, So Cali, signed to major Alligator Records, and he blew his harp all the way to the very top of the blues harmonica world. He became one of the all-time greats, before he got a chance to finish. Tragically, William Clarke died in 1996. He was only 45. Nobody would get to ever see Bill work his magic & mastery ever again. Generations of future fans would not get to see that cool cat in his shades & suit boogie down flat on his back on the stage rockin' his spin & blowin' minds.
    ... but I had this unknown hidden gem. I respected Bill's wishes & kept my word for over 20 years - I did not ever show this performance - THEN /20th century. Now, someone might like to see this. I gave the tapes of the show to Bill's wife, Jeannette, she would be a better keeper of this legacy. (YouTube had not quite started yet). One night in early 2014, I was surprised by a posting on Facebook for William Clarke on Brother Matt's Bluez Shift from Thomas. Thomas is a fan & harmonica player in the Netherlands who got the show from Jeannette, and he sent it back to me - completing the full circle, spreading the music & magic of William Clarke around the world and into the future.

    (*Steve Samuels is amazing and can also be found playing on other Bluez Shift episodes with Johnny Dyer & the LA Jukes).

    William Clarke was my greatest influence on the harmonica. I truly hope that if you love the blues half as much as I do, you will purchase his CDs, enjoy the music and learn from him along the way.

    William Clarke - Pawnshop Bound

    8:52

    Listen up all you William Clarke and West Coast Blues fans! I got this DVD from Jeannette Clarke (Lodovici), and I can tell'ya that it's serious business on this one! William Clarke is in great shape, outstanding harmonica, talking to the audience and singing. The band is awesome. Buddy Clark and Eddie Clark lays a SOLID ground for this steaming train of B L U E S! Both Zach Zuniz and Rick Holmstrom swings as hell, trading licks, double stops and you name it! I'm really impressed with Zach Zunis, what a guitarist, awesome timing! Then William calls up Alex Schultz and Bill Stuve from the audience (see Must Be Jelly video) and the band takes off into next gear, man, can it get any better? All in all its 1 hour of steaming hot jumping blues. Alex and Bill plays on several songs in the middle of the set. Mail Jeannette at: JLodovici@aol.com I f you want it!

    I can also recommend the new William Clarke cd called, One More Again. Great harp work as usual from William. And for all you jumpguitaraddict's out there it's a must! Alex Schultz on 7 of 10 tracks!

    Work Song - Tributo al gran William Clarke

    1:23

    Los invito a visitar mi página web:

    Amigas y amigos, en el día de hoy les dejo mi humilde tributo y reconocimiento a un grande de la armónica de blues de California y principal referente para iniciarme en la armónica, el señor William Clarke, quien lamentablemente nos dejara el 3 de noviembre de 1996, con tan solo 44 años de edad. Pero su legado musical en el blues mundial quedará siempre presente.

    En este caso hice su versión del tema Work Song que originalmente la tocaba en armónica cromática de 16 celdas afinada en Do (letra C), por lo que yo hice una adaptación para la armónica diatónica de 10 celdas en Do.

    Más adelante estaré subiendo el video tutorial de esta gran pieza instrumental.

    Amigas y amigos de youtube, si les has gustado el video suscríbanse a mi canal, hagan click en me gusta o dejen algún comentario relacionado con el video o con la armónica en general. Desde ya muchas gracias y saludos para todos desde Uruguay!

    Bruno Berloto.
