Synopsis

Album Description
Live and in person, Cordell Jackson, "the Grandmother of Rock and Roll" has captured four decades of raw rockabilly reverance on "Cordell Jackson, Live in Chicago". Born in Mississippi and rooted in Memphis TN, Cordell Jackson is a resounding example of rock and roll tenacity. Inspired by her father, Cordell is an accomplished instrumentalist, excelling at guitar, harmonica, bass, and piano. In 1947, she became the first female recording engineer in the United States. After seven years of writing and recording demos with her friend Sam Phillips, at Sun Studios, she established her own record label, Moon Records. This CD, recorded live at Schubas with no overdubs, is a collection of hot throbbin hillbilly blues, done in the classic "Cordell" style.

Raw,Rockin,Live ,Rockabilly!

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Raw Rockin Live Rockabilly by a living legend well into her sixties. You may remember her as the granny that played circles around Brian Setzer in a Beer commercial a few years back. Well she does,play circles around Setzer that is.Her playing style falls into the same catagory as her "rockabilly grandkids", Dexter Romweber formerly of "The Flat Duo Jets" ,and Poison Ivy of "The Cramps". She is a one of a kind original and this record comes with the higfhest recommendations.A+"
