The Real Chicago Blues

Blue Chicago offers a revealing look at an important part of Chicago life. David Grazian spent lots of time in blues clubs all over the city, schmoozing with musicians, bartenders, club owners, and audiences, sometimes even taking the stage himself. What he uncovers is how people involved with the Chicago blues scene define the blues experience and how they make use of those definitions when performing and producing the music. This is a wonderful book."—Howard S. Becker, author of Outsiders
