"Gary Clark Jr what’s the verdict on him???"
Wed Mar-06-19 04:05 PM by aesop socks

  

          

Just got done listening to QLS and he was the guest. Good episode, good dude I wanna like his music but hasn’t done it for me yet. So I give his now album a listen, once again I didn’t really like what I heard. Is anyone a fan of his?

So I was super disappointed in what I heard so I started brainstorming artist and Benjamin Booker popped up in my mind. So I gave his latest album Witness a listen. I ended up playing it back to back... so good. Made me glad to hear someone is doing a nice job with blues/rock too bad the hype machine isn’t behind Benjamin

That is if I were going to build a Prince by composite by taking traits from other artist, I picked this dude for guitar playing. Bilal for singing.

Now I must warn you I am not a hardcore music person to know good guitar work from great.

I've seen him live once & I'm seeing him again this Sunday.

I'm kinda like BG. I don't know enough about the guitar to know the technical aspects of good playing. And I'm not a blues or jazz expert either. That's probably why I tend to favor Clark's R&B sounding songs.

There was just a discussion recently where someone said that the various genres that Clark tries to cover lessens their enjoyment and I can totally understand that. But the songs that I like, I really like.

blues is museum music, and attempts to make modern iterations of it generally fall very flat. It's a genre frozen in time - it stopped successfully evolving around 1969. Late 1970s if you accept Albert Collins's discoey TX funk blues from that era (I do - see Cold Cuts, or Skatin') but mainstream Chicago blues was cashing in on its popularity with rock audiences by then and it seems like the biggest records were lamer versions of songs that had been done better in the 1950s. most other stuff since then is either retreads or just not very good... modern attempts to make blues not museum music sound flat. Previous saviors have included a bunch of guys whose names I don't even remember... don't really wanna talk about the guys like Joe Bonnamossa. They're fine, but *shrug*

For a current blues guy, I'll take Blind Boy Paxton any day. Museum music, sure, but played and presented brilliantly.

that said, i fux with lenny's earlier stuff and gary is ok, but he (gary) doesnt move me enough as an artist and his guitar playing is pretty basic. my man Eric Gales is the truth tho...killer voice, great songs, and virtuoso level guitar playing.

None of his recorded work has matched his live energy for me. See him live is my advice.

That man knows how to work a crowd. One of the best concerts I’ve been to he should be a star.
