Denman Maroney (piano) / Ratzo Harris (bass) / Bob Meyer (drums)

Call it cubist jazz. In most music you relate to a beat. In ours you pick a beat to relate to. Pick another, and your perspective changes. Listen casually, and it sounds loose; closely, and it sounds tight. In most harmony, a chord sounds different if the intervals are inverted. In our temporal harmony or relative time, the same thing happens with rhythm. This is perfectly natural. Stars, planets, and moons keep separate but related times—the music of the spheres—as do clouds, waves, birds, arms, legs, eyes, ears, lungs, hearts, and minds. And we think we keep time by our watches! No; we keep alternate times.

The Roots Cafe Singer-Songwriter Series presents

Phil Wiggins is a harmonica virtuoso and singer-songwriter in the Piedmont blues tradition of Sonny Terry. Wiggins is best known for his partnership with singer-guitarist “Bowling Green” John Cephas for more than 30 years and more than a dozen albums. The duo won the blues world’s biggest prize, the W.C. Handy Award for Entertainer of the Year, in 1987. Since Cephas died in 2009, Wiggins has fashioned new partnerships with such bluesmen as Corey Harris, Rev. John Wilkins, Nat Reese and Rick Franklin. This year he appeared with such peers as Harris, Taj Mahal, Shemekia Copeland, Guy Davis and Alvin Youngblood Hart on the album “True Blues,” which collects recent live performances from New York’s Lincoln Center, Los Angeles’s House of Blues and Annapolis’s Rams Head on Stage.

In reviewing the album, American Blues Scene magazine said, “It’s Wiggins and his harp who steal the show with a seemingly limitless array of textures and riffs inserted between each verse.

George Kilby Jr. is best known as both a guitarist and producer for blues legend Pinetop Perkins, with whom Kilby actually lived for a year in Chicago. Kilby produced Perkins’ 1993 “Portrait of a Delta Bluesman,” which won the W.C. Handy Award for Blues Album of the Year.  But Kilby has also worked with such artists as Coco Robicheaux, Rosco Gordon, Howie Wyeth, Henry Butler and Railroad Earth, and has released four albums of Southern roots-rock under his own name. More recently he has been co-writing songs with Phil Wiggins and performing with the harmonica whiz as a duo.

Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, Baltimore City Paper, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, Paste and others, Geoffrey Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Si Kahn, Fred Koller, Walter Egan, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Jim Patton, Ed Pettersen, Howard Markman, Paul Margolis, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. This month Himes will premiere his new song, “Shine, Shine, Drink That Shine." He will be accompanied by Willem Elsevier, violinist for such acts as Love Riot, Billy Kemp and Milkshake.
