Blogarrhea: A Trip Through the Delta Blues Via the Lens of Sax Man Noah Preminger >>

When Blind Willie Johnson recorded "Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground" in 1927, he couldn't have known that 50 years later, in 1977, it would be launched into space with 26 other songs just in case any aliens wanted to know about our culture. Thirty-nine years after that, in 2016, 'Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground' is also the sound of a Connecticut sax man, Noah Preminger, getting real.

REVIEW: Noah Preminger, 'Pivot: Live at the 55 Bar' (Self-Released) >>

For his fourth CD, recorded live in a Greenwich Village, NY bar, saxophonist Noah Preminger, 29, the Connecticut wonder, has taken trumpeter Jason Palmer, bassist Kim Cass and drummer Ian Froman into the studio to record two half-hour jammy trips of the music of Mississippi bluesman Bukka White [1907-1977]. The two 1940 Bukka classics-"Parchman Farm Blues" and "Fixin' To Die Blues"-have been covered by many artists in many genres...but never like this!
