Lewis Cohen . . . VIEW
Lewis Cohen has to be heard to be believed… The sheer genius of his playing came home to me when Lewis kindly agreed to play a live session during my show on the 15th January 2010. Lewis played some great songs and has a great voice. Playing his album with such tracks as his cover of Waits Picture in a frame underlined his vocal range and ability to sing with real feeling. Buy the album, you will not be disappointed.

The history of the blues is more than a musical chronology. The blues was born the day the West African shoreline fell from the horizon. It was raised amid the institutionalized savagery of the Deep South and flourished in the dark heart of America's largest cities. We owe the blues to those who bore the pain of enslavement behind the frightful shadows of our collective soul. The Blue Highway, then, is dedicated to the men and women who travelled beyond our ignorant place, and to those who could not.
